#22 of 578 in Kolkata (Calcutta)
The Corner Courtyard is an attempt to resurrect the glorious epoch of Calcutta through a meticulous reconstruction of this 110-year-old colonial building. This painstaking and passionate refurbishing project has been artfully concluded to keep the character of the actual imperial structure alive, while accommodating modern-day facilities to provide a matchless experience through time. The seven uniquely themed rooms evoke different shades and moods of Kolkata, each interspersed with a narrative and replete with classic century-old furniture especially handpicked and restored for your pleasure. The rooms, each categorized by a specific color- Indigo, Ivory, Cadmium, Crimson, Vermillion, Charcoal and Eden Green, denote different facets of the city of joy, which we have tried to recreate through the individual decor of these rooms. Our endeavors to ensure that you have a culturally immersive stay have led us to create an exclusive multi-cuisine menu hand-crafted by Gourmet Chefs for our in-house restaurant, incorporating global culinary trends with traditional Indian flavors. In addition, our vintage open-roof Land Rover is available round the clock to provide a luxurious city-tour fit for royalty. Combing values of elegance and simplicity, we at The Corner Courtyard desire to etch Kolkata's varied heritage in the hearts and minds of our guests while catering to their every comfort. So with open arms we welcome you to partake of this journey through time that is The Corner Courtyard. We hope your stay will be memorable.

It is a beautiful vintage property, reminds one of the houses in the olden days. Moreover, the highlight definitely is the dining area adorned with the crafty chairs, chandeliers, ornamental walls and the decor was top notch. The room however I felt was a little small to suit my needs, nevertheless everything else was great. We had ordered dinner on a particular night and found it pretty decent.

Had booked for two nights. It’s a well done hotel but the Housekeeping is pathetic. The room was simply put dirty. There was dust all over. The paint from the walls is peeling off. Ants in the shower area. Musty smell. Cobwebs on the walls. And the cherry on the cake was an inch high spring coming out of the mattress which they could not replace so we had to put extra douvets over it. The sheets were smelling and the pillow cases were frayed ! It’s very sad to see a beautiful property which has so much potential going down the drain because the maintenance is terrible. I wish they would get a really good manager who has a housekeeping back ground. All in all I do not recommend this place.

One of the most original hotels I've seen in India. In an old, beautifully renovated house, a sort of Boutique Hotel filled with vintage furniture and objects. Rooms don't have numbers, but names of colours: crimson, charcoal, etc. Original and charming altogether. As opposed to what appears in the presentation, breakfast is not included (and is rather costly). Strangely enough, the menu is based on Western cuisine... Very helpful man at the reception,who speaks perfect English and is ready to share with you excellent info about dinner (casual or stylish) in the city. Original and charming altogether.

Oh I absolutely loved this place.. an 100+ year old building converted to a fine dining place with a beautiful skylight and some old novels pinned to the wall.. when I flipped through the books and saw names like Black Beauty, it brought back so many childhood memories.. and, of course, the food was so yum too..

I have found that, when traveling through India, the best places to stay are small, comfortable, off-the-beaten-path hotels and hostels. I would count the Corner Courtyard in this category. A friend and I stayed in the Ivory room, which was clean and large enough for the two of us. There was a porch with a view of the street below right outside our door. The bathroom was large, complete with a shower and western toilet. And there was AC! Overall, it was a good value for what we paid and I would stay there once more if I ever roll through Kolkata again.

This hotel is situated almost centrally & actually restored from an old house.. which they have done beautifully! the entire decor is very thoughtful & beautiful. they have tried to make the most of the limited space that they have. The number of rooms are naturally limited but done very beautifully. The rooms are reaally very small even for 2 people. There is not much space to move. But unfortunately, they cannot do anything about it. The food is decent, not great. The staff is good & polite. our room was on the 2nd floor, above which they have a roof-top restaurant. unfortunately, entire night they kept moving furniture there & hence it was very noisy and we were unable to sleep at all. they have to make this right as it is highly inconvenient!!! if space is not a constraint, this is a good place.

I caught a glimpse of The gorgeous yellow floral chairs in a magazine . Top it up with images of Colonial architecture and I was sold. Unfortunately the hotel was a big let down. As we checked in I peered inside ignoring the bored receptionist at the front desk . Lights were switched off and the place looked dingy and uninviting. As we moved past the dining area the yellow floral chairs looked dull and ignored. There was a mopping cloth on the floor soaking in the water dripping from the AC in the dining area. As we moved up the staircase I kept my fingers crossed. As we moved towards the room We passed the kitchen of the hotel which was a very unpleasant sight . Couple of rooms huddled across a dingy corridor. The room itself a far cry from the pictures on various websites. A far cry from any imagery you would have had of a quaint place with colourful upholstery. Further unpleasant surprises in the morning at breakfast time . It seems the breakfast included in the package has very very limited options. The service also was very lethargic and oh boy were we glad to leave for our work in the morning ! I am sure the owners tried to keep an old stately house alive but it takes a lot to maintain these kind of places. Overall a disappointment....

Very nicely restored - one could see a lot of work went in to recreate the place to its old glory - however the fine eye upkeep is missing - I reckon the place would need a major overhaul very soon as you could feel the place very slowly peeling off. Staff is great - willing to assist - however somewhat lack of training or I'd say lack of basic supervision hinders the to delivery. A very good product but absence of a fine eye may make it slide down few notches.

For all their talk of world travel, the owners of the restaurant have not managed to rise above the old Indian custom of stuffing servings with carbs, and stingy portions of the main dish, in my case the New Zealand lamb chops. The cooking was strictly so so, and the service slow and disinterested. Not coming back.

Had booked 3 rooms for wedding guests here, and made a complete prepayment on the day of check-in so that our guests would not be inconvenienced. However, at checkout they were totally confused and kept saying that we had booked 4 rooms and finally presented a hidden additional charge. Can't understand why they couldn't tell me this at check-in, when I had requested to pay in full! Our guests were very harassed and this was a horrible experience for us.
