I stayed at Lytton hotel for 3 nights The hotel is in the center of Kolkata and streets around are full of restaurants and shops. The room was comfortable and quite big, but the bathroom was not very clean and sanitary tubes were rusty and dripping. Breakfast was rich of Indian dishes but poor of international food.

Location nice. Isolated from New Market crowd though apprx 50 yards from market. Staffs are supportive and friendly. Breakfast medium. Taxi and public transport available nearby. Road and hotel entry side room with window is better. Some Kolkata attractions such as Victoria memorial, Park Street, Indian museum etc are in short distance. Lots of street shops though very crowded.

I have often stayed in the hotel for official and business trip. The hotel is near the commercial hub of Kolkata and easily accessible to new markets. The breakfast was nothing write about considering covid and they are serving in make shift area. But still good for budget staying in main commercial area

Though the hotel is centrally located and very near to street shopping but the property is pretty old and not maintained. Furniture is atleast 2-3 decades old, rooms are stinky. I had A horrible experience with the food. I ordered seas food, and got stale food which was stinking, I am sure, even Cats and dogs will not touch that. More surprising is the FnB staffs behaviour, they took it as routine and not even bothered to check.

We stayed here for 4 nights. Hotel is right next to New Market. Rooms are big and sofa can be used as bed for kids. Breakfast was provided in room and quality / quantity was good. Limited parking spaces are available. There is a restro-bar called Sunset in the same campus. Had a good experience.

Was there for 3 days. Prime location for shopping. Had hot water for showers, free breakfast with variety of foods. Not a boring place. Clubs, restaurants and shops were plenty. People working at the hotels were friendly.

The cleaning of our room was very poor. The Wi-Fi did not work. The hot water was unreliable. We asked for a quiet room and were disturbed by an alarm that went off regularly from a freight elevator. Our refrigerator did not work and they said they would replace it. They never did. We were there 3 days. Breakfast was only passable.

The lobby is nice, but beyond that it was a disappointment! Run , don’t walk away!

I stayed in this Hotel from 2nd to 5th of Feb 2013. I chose this hotel for its location and price. I found this to be the most value for money hotel. A Delux Room would cost u 5k & Suit 7.5k during season. The staff were very helpful & co-operative. Food was very good. The Breakfast was Good.
This hotel would suit everyone, be it solo, couple or family.
The best of the bestest part is its vincity to the Park Street and local or street market.

I recommend this hotel & would certainly put in here in my next visit to Kolkata.

I was in Kolkatta for 10 days and rooms were scarce. I am a photographer and Lytton happened to be in the neighbourhood where I needed to be for my work.

This hotel was not my first pick and will forever be my LAST pick since actually staying there.

Attitude of the staff was deplorable and Management event worse.

The lights and power shut off every day. I discovered was just a ruse to make me call the front desk, which invariable led to someone standing at my door with their hand out for a tip.

The free “wifi” was shut off every day. This too was just a ruse to make me call the front desk so someone could put out their hand for a tip.

Even when I didn’t have a problem – staff continuously came to my door at awkward times to check if I had enough towels…..of course they knew I did; because the had just cleaned my room. Of course, the real motivation was just to have another opportunity to put their hand out.

Finally I said – LOOK – I will tip you all when I leave…..suddenly power and wifi interruptions stopped and nuisance “service” visits stopped.

Third world service, 4 star price. Hotel advertises “free wifi” and round the clock services.

My air conditioner didn’t work, so a service man came to the room. T

his is when the biggest disaster started…….the man started moving my belongings around. I asked him to allow me to d it…..but he didn’t listen and suddenly my camera bag crashed to the floor and all of the contents scattered.

A $1500 lens was destroyed. I went to speak with the manager,

Mr Punwani. He seemed concerned at first, and sent me to the Nikon store to see about fixing it. Nikon advised that it could not be repaired, so I asked Mr Punwani to reimburse me so I could get a new lens. He told me he would do everything to look after the problem.

Finally – after 5 weeks in India after having contacted him repeatedly, he declined to do anything. I finally went back to the hotel, and managed to get into his office to speak with him politely about the incident. He told me it was not his problem. He also told me that he already compensated me by discounting my room rate (which is a complete lie, I paid the full posted rate….).

Finally he said that he would credit me back but since the bank (HSBC) was closed, he would do it the following day. Lie. I continued to email Mr Punwani and the hotel repeatedly since my return, but have never received the courtesy of one reply.

Mr. Punwani’s AUDI R8 sits in the front of the hotel most days, his Aston Martin and his Hummer on other days. If only he would pay his staff adequately or invest in customer service…..
