we are four friends went to Kolkata for some official work, we decided to stay in Kolkata for two days and visit the places. so we booked hotel Esplanade Chambers from travel guru got confirmation from travel guru and on the way to hotel we called the hotel to inform we are reaching there but surprisingly hotel guy said there were no rooms available. After one hour struggle with the Travel guru call center. They arranged 2 rooms at Hotel Heera and promised that was good deal than the previous hotel.This hotel is very well located in the heart of the City very near to Esplanade in the lane beside of DGP office on grant road.
Hotel is surrounded with the shops. Hotel entrance is very small once you enter the hotel reception is good. Hotel manger was help full and nice guy. Hotel rooms are clean and comfortable. There was a refrigerator in our room I think they haven't cleaned it from long time but because its winter there was no need to use that. Hot water is available 24 hrs.
I definitely don't suggest this hotel for families or official meetings, but I can surly suggest the hotel is good people travel without their family like with friends traveling together for a trip...
you can walk to Esplanade metro station so you can reach any part of the city in less than half an hour. They doesn't have in house restaurant so they do room service for this,Food quality is OK according to the rates(Found Rates are very less than Pune's smaller restaurant) ,
they will take orders for food till 10.30PM so you can roam around the city and come back and order your food.
over all OK to stay for 2 nights, if don't expect too much from a hotel.
