"Not an exciting city"

Dirty city. Too much traffic and humid. Not a place to relax. Just wanted to run away the same day. After 10 you don't get smoke or a bottle of wine, but if you pay double the amount hotel staff arrange it. Disgusting place. I would not recommend anyone to visit Kolkatta for a relaxing vacation.

Nice place. Food is great her. Don't take taxi for full day. Choose places to visit first. Maximum are in close to each other. Stay alert in kalighat mandir. All priest are after money. Visit market it is cheap. But very big in size. Malls are great

"Nice friendly people with good eating joints"

  • 5.0/7
  • Posted 2 months ago
We went on a super short business trip this May, but as a first timer in that city, I must say that I agree with the people who have visited Kolkata before in that it is a nice place to visit, provided you don't mind the heat, humidity and bustle . . People are somewhat courteous and helpful. Just about everyone speaks Hindi and most speak English too The eating joints we visited were quite nice too. Flury's was o. K. Too. We had breakfast there I was surprised and delighted to actually find sugar candies in New Market that anyone visiting old Calcutta would bring and that we loved as kids. Shree Leathers in New Market is mesmerising. Ola/Uber cabs are easy to get and rates are reasonable. Yellow (non-AC) cabs are also available but you need to haggle or they will over-charge as will the AC cabs. AC cabs smell of sweat and grime so take one at your own peril MMT offered a fantastic discounted rate for The Park Hotel deluxe room which we availed. The hotel was reasonably good but with the prices they charge one would actually expect something more. The in-house nightclub music does tend to reverberate all the way to the room we had on the second floor but we were too tired to care Will definitely visit again. In winter.

The hotel was really good the facilities available were amazing, with the staff being really generous and humble, food was also tastier, but far from Eden gardens but nearer to airport, metro don't connect to this area, shopping malls are nearer to the location.

I live Kolkata. Is is religious as well as historical place too. Food is too good in quality as well as cost compair to any other city of India. Dakshineswar, Belur Math, Kalighat, The beautiful Ganges river, Sundardan etc is some attraction of Kolkata.
