At the end of our first month in India we stayed 2 nights here in one of their "exec suites". We've been staying in mid-range locally owned hotels and this was our least favourite. I don't think there are many tourist options in Kolkata but the Eslanade is tired, worn and grimy; with poor service.

We (sister and I) stayed at the Hotel Esplanade Chambers for one night, as I arrived from my international flight into Kolkata. Reading previous reviews, I didn't have great expectations as many noted the hotel was quite low budget, ideal for a quick overnight and location was ideal. Finding the place was quite tricky, and this was probably partially due...

This is a budget hotel in the middle of Kolkata. It was fine, beds were ok, rooms ok bathroom ok. Location was great. Breakfast was fine. Maybe a bit of a clean every now and then would be a good idea but it suited our purpose, we were out all day and night and only came back for a sleep....

Usually I don't write critical reviews but this hotel is possibly why there are some dirty hotels existent in the country. Absolutely dirty and the minute you enter the hotel you feel like u have entered some place which has been kept in such a bad state. My friend booked this hotel for me for 3 nights. Firstly it is...

Stayed here for a night on a business tour. Surfed around the usual low budget hotels around Chandni Chowk area, but this place was by far the best. Choose a Executive Twin room with Rs. 200/- extra, and you would experience a real upgrade. Rooms are neat, clean, and safe.

I have spent more than 15 days in this hotel in the pat 2 months during my several on and off visits to Calcutta. When I discovered this place I was a bit skeptic, seeing some negative reviews.

I never wrote a review until today. But, I felt like writing for this because I didn't even go the place. It's just that I booked my room online, received a confirmation via email and my payment has also been successful. I called up the hotel to let them know that I would be checking out the same night and...

Convenient Hotel, set conveniently near Gate 3 of Chandni Chowk Metro and close enough to Sudder Street and the Hog Street Market without being in the thick of it. We found the people in the street were very friendly and helpful when we got lost (on numerous occasions). We also found a little street trader to sew my leather flip...

“Rooms with the balcony are more subject to street sounds, but the activities on the street are so intriguing that its almost worth it. For longer stays, choose a room that doesn't face the street.”
