Excellent hotel with amazing location

Posted 6 Nov, 2015

I stayed in this hotel in Santiniketan Poush Mela with my family. Location is very closer to the bolpur town. It's location is 3 km distance from the Bolpur railway station. The staff was very helpful to the restaurant suggestion. And the hotel room service was good. The room was very comfortable for our family. The room was decorated nicely and it give us wooden bed, sofa fan, light, TV with cable connection and with attach bathroom. Inside the hotel garden view was very romantic. The restaurant was very nice. The food was fresh and quality was good. Although this is my 2 days experience about this hotel and we enjoy the Santiniketan Poush Mela and the city also. I recommended to visit this hotel.

Good Hotel though not in the luxurious category

Posted 31 Oct, 2013

We have been looking for an outing with all my extended family group members away from the hustle bustle of the city. The choice many had in mind was that of Puri or Digha. Then it occurred to me - why not Shantiniketan ? We have never been there and Bolpur not being crowded during the Durga Puja , we opted for Shantiniketan. Now that the place was decided , we had to find out a place where our big group could stay. Many friends suggested some private houses who let out the whole premises to the guest on daily rental basis. Since we had kids with us we decided that a conventional hotel with dining facility should be opted for. We started looking for hotels and our only resource was the worldwideweb. After rigorous search and brainstorming we decided on Hotel Utsav since the hotel provided pictures looked fresh on the website. Deciding on the hotel we set out to book the same by depositing 50% of the total amount in their Kolkata Office at Karnani Estate - Park Circus. The hotel rooms were clean - the reception though was not impressive at all.They had food service which was good but expensive as everything in Shantiniketan is - like rickshaws and other handicrafts items. We were told that since the locals earn from tourism mainly, the rates were high hence did not negotiate on anything principally.We enjoyed Maha Ostomi puja in Surul Sarkar Jamindar bari which was very traditional and we all liked it.A few sites were very good like the Sanibarer Haat and the Puja done by the locals of Khowai. I suggest that you stay at WB Torism Guest House near to Bishwa Bharati.This place is very crowded during Pous Mela and Bosonta Utsav hence early hotel booking is highly advised.Overall it was a good family outing and look forward to visit there soon again !

A nice hotel to stay

Posted 30 Sep, 2015

Last December we go to Santiniketan. We choose this hotel for its location and good rooms. It is too near to station. And the cost for hotel is too much pocket friendly. Rooms are very big and neat clean, bed is also big, nice toilet, both AC and non AC rooms are here. We booked AC room, but AC does not work at power cut time. Food is so so, if you order some special menu they arrange it from outer. Service and staff are so good, I impressed about this hotel.

Peaceful hotel with helpful staff

Posted 24 Sep, 2015

I and my family went to Santiniketan and we stayed in Utsav Hotel and spend three days. The location is very closer to Bolpur Bus Stop and Bolpur Railway Station. So no difficult to reach the hotel. The receptionist and hotel staff are very helpful, and room service was good. The room was very nice and maintained properly. And decorated with wooden bed, light, fan, TV and other. With attach bathroom, which was clean. Inside the hotel garden was very romantic. The hotel restaurant was decorated nicely. And was clean and clear. The food was good and tasty. I think that it is a very peaceful hotel in Santiniketan, if I next time go Santiniketan I must choose this hotel.
