“Really Nice, but could have been better!”
Reviewed 1 January 2011

First off, the location is FANTASTIC. It is just off Park Street and it is a great place. Lots of restaurants, and bookshops and roadside eateries all around. And by being off the main street, it avoids all the noise and the traffic that comes with it. Perfect.

The rooms are cozy. If you are looking for large rooms, this is not a place, here the rooms are small, neat, comfortable and functional. (Barring the damned internet, which we will come to later)

If you are a traveller planning to explore Calcutta (I still call it that) by metro, then this is really not a great place as the nearest metro station (infact two of them :D) are about 800mts away. If you, like me, do not mind walking, then it should not be a hindrance at all.

Cabs are easily available around the hotel. All the shops that you could need (electronics, books, music, etc) as a traveller/tourist are close at hand.

Now that bad: The hotel does not provide any sort of internet connection in the room. For internet access you will have to visit its 'business center' in the first floor. Even there you are charged 50 rupees an hour. Also, it is open only from 11:00am and closes rather inconveniently at 7:30pm.

The lift is very very noise. I thankfully got a room away from the lift, but if you have a room near the lift, good bye sleep! There is music on all the time in the lift, and it can be heard all thru the corridor no matter which floor the lift is in. If it is in the floor that you are in, it can be heard as if the music is playing in your earphones.

Breakfast is complimentary, but the fare is not wide. If you are non-indian traveller, you will have to either try the indian variety (because there is no option, they make only one dish) or satisfy yourself with bread jam/butter. Whatever is present is decent and palatable. But with so many places to try around this should not be an issue. (McDonalds, Barista, Flury's, KFC, are all about 100mts away and open early)

Hope this helps.

Well done rooms, Central Location, near by food joints, pubs,etc. make this a good value proposition. Breakfast was free but basic. But you can skip that attraction and get great south indian and western(at flury's) within walking distance. I paid 7700 for three nights...in some deal with a trade fair company

From bottom to top the main entrance doorman,receptionist,GRE,sales till the general manager of the hotel all were really hospitable and made my official trip a success.
The rooms were really fantastic and really cozy will all the necessary in room facilities and amenities,also the food was yum and specially the outdore lunch under the canopy while the rain was drizzling on top.
Overall it was a lovely stay not just because the hotel product is good and value for mone but also because they have a great team who are a true hospitality professionals.
