Stayed here on Feb 2011. Nothing was okay with this hotel except for its location. Rooms were small, bathroom was terrible. The stairs were very narrow & steep (not for elderly people). Service was below standard. This place is a trip spoiler. Never going back.

the pictures on the net do not represent the exact state of the rooms. the entrance is fine, the staircase is a disaster and the rooms are basic. the linen was clean , bathrooms renovated recently, but still a bit over priced. but its very close to park street and thats the only reason i stayed there.

Horrible experience in every aspect! Not only that the place is overpriced, but they even lied to us with the bill and we had to pay considerably higher price. The staff are constantly begging for tips and the service they provide is far from pleasing. The room was very dirty and extremely noisy. The breakfast - worst thing ever! The...

The first thing to point out is that the Hotel VIP Continental and the Hotel VIP International are separate hotels, albeit on the same street. I have no idea whether they are part of the same hotel chain. We stayed there for 4 nights in December 2012. We didn't pre-book; we just asked at the reception desk whether they had...

Great location, and the most comfortable bed. We found this hotel on Christmas eve, when there was no room at the inn even at the most basic hotels during the school holidays in Kolkata. We only needed one night, but returned again and stayed 4 nights at the end of our trip. Good complementary breakfast, and cheap laundry service provided....

At the time of check in which i did along with my friend on 19th Dec. 2012, the receptionist showed me a delux room and also showed a tariff booklet. We agreed for the delux room and also the room tariff showed as per that tariff booklet. The surprise thing they said when we check in, they asked whether we...

I Checked in at late night and left early in the morning at 4 AM to catch my flight. Rooms were small. There was no blanket and I was so tired that I had no energy left to call them and ask for one. Later I found that there was no water as well. bathroom was too small. I asked...

The hotel is very congested. Though, I found the service OK, but not exemplary. However, since I have stayed at the hotel more than once, the authorities have reduced rates for me. The best for me was the complementary breakfast, but certainly, the hotel charges much higher for the rooms.
