3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 December 2011

I have been experimenting with hotels in Kolkata in 2011, and Southern Plaza was another one in my list. I stayed here for 3 nights – 23rd to 25th Nov 2011. The hotel is located at Southern Avenue near Menoka cinema hall in a quiet neighbourhood but very near to Golpark. Locationwise not bad, though at night it is a bit difficult to locate it. The hotel is a small hotel with 32 rooms, and calls itself a boutique hotel, which means it is not clear what it stands for. The hotels upkeepment is good inspite of the space constraint. The space crunch is most glaring in the room I stayed in. The room size was 8 feet by 10 feet but the silly part was the presence of a pillar (see the attached pictures) in the middle of the room. In my 10 years of travelling this is the first time I had to share a room with a pillar, and I have stayed in many lousy hotels but nothing as peculiar as this. Due to the size of the room the bed was no longer than 6 feet, and was short for a person above 6 feet height.

The toilet was also a compact (read small) box, and was nothing extraordinary. Hot water was available easily and toiletry was replenished daily.

I availed of room service, the food was okay. I had lunch one day at the hotel restaurant Oceania, the service was at a snail’s pace and some of the items on their menu card was not available. The food was good though- we ordered rice, dal and some veg stuff.

Breakfast was a big disappointment, very limited fare, no fruits, no juices and poor service. After enquiring my room no. the waiter made a disappearing act so I had to wait for an enternity to order for a cup of tea.

One thing which bugged me the most was they were serving drinking water in used mineral water bottles. On asking for proper mineral / package water they said it was on chargeable basis. At Rs4200/- per night room rent if even mineral water was not complimentary then it smells like a rip off. Also there is a question of hygiene when water is served in used Kinley / Aquafina bottles.

Overall at Rs4200/- per night including taxes the vaue for money was missing, I would have not complained if they had charged Rs3000/- (including taxes) but unfortunately the mid priced hotel space have good hotels in Kolkata and business travelers have to do with whatever is available

Room Tip: Ask for a room without pillar, to avoid noise ask for a room away from the road

The hotel is very nice, staff is courteous and the aesthetics have been taken care of very well. From sanitary ware to wallpapers to veneers to LCD, everything is branded. Only disadvantage, once you are in the hotel, u have to take a cab to reach a market or restaraunt. Although one of the best malls, South City is at 10 mins drive. Value for money, recommended!

small rooms definitely, but good overall service. reminded me of greece - same matchbox rooms. clean, no pests, good bathrooms - very important! food was fair.
very far from the airport - one and half hours car ride - so plan well in advance for flights.
