Reviewed 5 March 2013

I stayed here for two weeks during an NGO trip. The hotel staff went above and beyond to make our stay very personal They knew me by name, were always available for assistance or information, and were very accommodating to our needs as a team, such as serving breakfast an hour earlier than the standard hours. The food for breakfast was good, the dinners we had were excellent. Wifi was the only challenging aspect, as it was hit-or-miss. The rooms are clean and comfortable. Location was a definite advantage as well, as it was a 10-minute walk to the subway or to several good restaurants. I would gladly recommend this hotel.

Rooms are modern, clean and comfortable. We needed a room for three people and got a large room that was very comfortable. Bathroom is modern and clean but it is tiny. A little re-furbishment wouldn't hurt the rooms and bathroom. Wifi works well. Walls are thin though and we had noisy teenagers in the room next door. They quietened down upon complaining to the reception though. Location is ok. A 20 min drive from the city center in a quiet, clean (for kolkata) residential area with a large park nearby for a jog or walk. Service is good. Breakfast is ridiculous though. The buffet is small but adequate. The real issue is the lack of space. The breakfast room is tiny. There are only 3 tables. Chairs are scattered around haphazardly. You either have to wait for other guests to finish and then come back or eat with your plate on your lap. If this issue could be fixed, the hotel would be ok.

We were looking for a clean property in a quiet area. It is 15 minutes from Park Street and Central Calcutta but definitely good value for money. Although the hotel is new and the decor is modern, the walls are very thin and you should pray you don't have noisy families next door. We had to request people to stop talking loudly at midnight by phoning reception. The staff is helpful and want tips. They moved an extra bved into the room which was large enough so as give us some breathing space.

I would choose a room at the front to look out on the trees rather than the property next door. The breakfast room and restaurant service is terrible. It is tiny and you may not get a table. The breakfast is sparse and staff take a long time to refill the buffet. They could certainly offer a better breakfast. There are boiled eggs, south indian food and eggs to order. Nothing else.

The bathrooms need a thorough cleaning. We had a leak in the roof that soaked all our towels. The upside is that is value for money and if you are out in Calcutta all day you get a clean place a reasonable cost. We found taxis easy to get and the area very safe. The restaurant is decent but there are better places to eat in Calcutta, even around the Lakes.

Room Tip: 103 and 104 andlikweise should be good on other floors.

We stayed here for almost a week. A nice warm hotel. Rooms are small but very clean and the staff are very pleasant. Plenty of hot water. Dining room a bit on the small side if there are more than a few people at breakfast. Would certainly go back again. A nice area to walk around in with a park close by and some nice places to eat .

Room Tip: CLEAN with pleasant staff.

My family and I (4 adults) chose Southern Plaza on the net based on the location in Calcutta (on posh Southern Avenue and close to the metro station). We weren't sure about the cleanliness and the service levels. After a stay for a week, we are convinced that it offered good value for money. The rooms, although not really spacious, were adequate for two people to occupy them. The hotel and the rooms were clean. The hotel staff were courteous and friendly. The buffet breakfast though was repetitive and we got tired of it after 3 days. The hotel offered internet wi-fi but this was not to our satisfaction. The speeds were abysmal and the connection would get cut off every now and then, making surfing a painful experience. Otherwise, it was an enjoyable stay for all of us.

Hotel clean, well maintained with friendly service and, above all relatively cheap.The hotel has good facilities for a decent price. Restaurant is decent took a late order for me and the morning buffet is simple & nice. Staff were quite courteous...The food at their restaurant is inexpensive and exceptionally good - the chinese was incredible as was as the continental : everything we tried impressed us! Our room was quiet at night,However, that aside, it is very hard to find criticism with this lovely hotel.

Room Tip: Try deluxe room in second & third floor......dinner to the restaurant by 2000hrs other otherwise...
