we stayed in the Kempton recently and had a wonderful time. The hotel is modern, clean in a great location. The staff are friendly and efficient, the rooms spacious and comfortable. The bathroom is amazing; huge with a lovely big bath and a large powerful shower. We ate in the restaurant one of the nights and the food was very good. Breakfast was ok but not really suited to western tastes. However there was toast and various types of eggs available which sustained us.
The location is great, perfect for touring the city. The hotel can organise various trips for you but we preferred to do it ourselves using a good map and guide book(supplied by hotel) and local taxis. Be prepared to haggle with the taxis as they can try to overcharge! There is a Subway Café located 2 mins from hotel with a large supermarket beside it which was very handy.
Kolkata is a beautiful and interesting city with lots of places to visit. we particularly enjoyed Mother House(Mother Teresa's Home), Victoria Monument, Marble Palace and the Zoo.
A word of warning; if you like a drink, alcohol is very hard to find in Calcutta so bring your own, The only place we were able to get a drink was in the Park St area; The Park Hotel and several other good licenced restaurants.
We would definitely recommend the Kempton Hotel and would will return if we are back in Kolkata.
