Overall it was a normal hotel


I had been to Kolkata in the month of January 2017 2016 and stayed in the The Residency. I went alone to visit KolkataThe destination Kolkata was average. The hotel location was good with necessary available at the nearest. I would rate the appearance of the hotel as very good. I would rate the front desk staff as good because of their responsive on time. I booked my room through online. I would rate the services in the hotel were very good with immediate response. Rooms which we stayed in were very good because of available facilities. The hotel food was very good because price is very comfortable with more varieties.

Appearance was good


I had visited this hotel for personal trip. The overall experience was excellent. The hotel was located in center of the city. The cab facility was provided by the hotel but it was chargeable. The room and washroom was well maintained. The activity was not conducted at the hotel. The appearance was good. I would recommend this hotel for upcoming travellers. I don't have any suggestion for this hotel. The best part of this hotel was manager.

Best budget hotel to stay


It is an excellent hotel to stay, behaviour of the staff and facilities offered are awesome. Location is quite good and easily reachable, food is delicious and service is the best. I have been staying there since December 2012 and till now whenever I visit Kolkata I stay there only. This is the best budget hotel.

Awesome hotel with nice staff


Travelling can be a pain if you fail to plan your stay well. But in my case everything turned out to be so easy as from reception on airport to the see off the hotel guys managed everything to the perfection. The cost is also very fair. The rooms are spacious and well decorated. Sometimes coming after wandering here and there the room felt better than the tourist places. The view from the room was awesome and will always be in my heart. Wholeheartedly recommended to everyone.

Decent hotel at a prime location


I visit Kolkata frequently for official trip. I always stay in this hotel. They offer very good service. Though there is no restaurant but arranges food from five different restaurants located nearby. So you can relish wide variety of food. The delivery is also prompt. Rates are reasonable Staff is very courteous and they provide prompt service. There is a very big market nearby where there are lot of eateries like Chinese, Northern food and authentic Bengali food For nature lovers and morning walkers there is Rabindra Sarovar Lake located 5 minutes walk from the hotel.

Costly stay; good rooms


I visited this hotel during my WBJEE exam. I was looking for a hotel in the nearby area but everyone was full. In Kolkata you will very rarely get room in a hotel After looking around for 3-4 hours we finally got this hotel. I was good from outside. Rooms are good but are costly. So if you are going from exam purpose and want to stay in this hotel then please avoid it. Because at first they don't want to give you rooms. They will say that they are full. After that if you insist they will overcharge you. But stay here. Look nearby places here. Eat street food. Just spend night in the hotel and roam all the day here and there.

Excellent location & services; awesome food


On the sweltering heat of Kolkata's summer the stay in The Residency Hotel service apartment was memorable stay, and cool. Highlights: Location - two minutes walk to Gol Park, ten minutes by walk to RB Avenue. Hospitality and service was courteous and pleasant. Rooms are refurnished and the decor. Food was awesome. It was a very good experience.
