Arrived at the hotel at 12.30pm, so had no idea how good the location was. Our room was way to small for 3 people. Spoke to the manager the next morning and he was very gracious in providing a much larger room with a sitting area on the 3rd floor.(room 311). All the staff kindly moved all our luggage into the new room, and provided us with extra towels, glasses and dressing gowns. The big bonus was the large window which directly overlooked Lindsay Street and the New Market.(What a great view).
The Bengali breakfast was simple and delicious, it was difficult to resist fresh puris every morning. Also available was fresh fruit, cereal and Bengali sweets, along with eggs cooked any way, which was made to order. The coffee was not to a westerners taste, so maybe some Nescafe would be nice.
The room and bathroom was clean and the beds were very comfortable. The white bed linen was clean and fresh, but had become grey, nothing some Napisan could not fix. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Will definitely stay again, and recommend to my friends.
Impossible believe this hotel charge about USD80 p/n and announce the property like luxury.
The staff is not friendly, no manners and very rude. When we arrived the girls at the front desk just look us like nothing! Why??? because we was no-show consequence for a flight delayed, and we send ASAP an email informing the situation to the reception. Well, the never responds.
The hotel looks terrible, needs maintenance urgent!! Dust, dirty, smelly, stains, and leaks around all the place. Bed linen and towels stack at the floor on the stairs or hallway.
Sleep here is a odyssey between the caos of the street, the noise of the other guest, and the workers building or fix something between 7am till 9pm.
AC at the room leaked all the floor, plugs are other issue (take care with your devices and yourself)
Bed linen is disgusting bath towels too, stained and smelly. Probably never washed.
One point here is very important and it honesty. Asking for a taxi from airport to the hotel they wanted charge USD30 about INR2000. A normal pre paid taxi from airport to new market is INR280 about USD5.00 and a taxi from JW Marriott a 5 star luxury hotel cost INR1800. So basically they want steal you.
The breakfast is not continental and don't offer any eastern options more than a banana an juice, not coffee and many indian food, if you are allow to have some curry at 7am go for there.
Another very important thing to considerate are the rules of the house. Rules made for the hotel where the winner always is the hotel, you can discover this only after your check in, because are on the draw at the desk ion your room.
Basically the manager can go into your room, take your stuffs, and also sale it. All this without your permission. Very convenient isn't int??
Location is good if you are interesting to stay in caos, markets and see the daily life of locals, otherwise nothing attractive to stay in a dirty area.
This centrally AC hotel is located at the heart of the city. There are 29 rooms and all rooms are well decorated and spacious too. Foods are very tasty. Room service is very good and behaviour of staff are pleasant. Offers Complementary buffet breakfast for all guests and welcome drink at arrival, which is tasty too. Free WiFi with decent speed.
Located on the famous Lindsay Street, this property is on one of the most lively streets of the city.
Its hard to spot the entrance. But the check is quick n easy.
Rooms are neat and clean. Decent size. Bathrooms are ok. The corridor is shabby with maintenance things n furniture all around.
The food is tasty. I liked it. Service very good. I had asked for wake up call and it was done.
All in all I good place to stay in the heart of the city with everything near by.
Very decent hotel at good rates. Right amidst the popular New Market. Breakfast is decent. Room service really good. Housekeeping is good too.
Staff quite helpful with tourist information.
You can walk to two metro stations from the hotel.
