“Avoid this place!”
Reviewed 4 January 2012

The place is centrally located however, my advice is one should avoid it! The guys might be very pleasant initially however, once you check in, the behaviour is different.
The flush was not working, had to change the room! The remote of AC was missing. There was loudest music possible on 3 floor as the hotel runs discotheque inside the compound and the music did not stop even at 11.30 pm. Even after complaining, they were not bothered about it.

So my advice is to stay away from this place. Kolkata has better facilities than this and one should not waste money and spoil the mood by staying at this worthless place.

I stayed in the hotel for a business trip. The hotel is at a safe location with a lot of eating joints nearby like Picadilly. Its restaurant has a good selection of food items. But the rooms are not very hygienic. The service level is above average.

Although the Hotel is centrally located but falls falt on all other counts.Rooms are cramped and they need some serious overhaul of the furniture and furnishing.
Breakfast is a terrible and and body staying on weekends will face tough time due to noise coming from the disc on the ground floor.
Staff is not very friendly and have a take it or lump it attitude.With this kind of price its better to look for some other hotel in the area.

Hotel has a decent team and simple service structure.

Rooms are good and spacious.

Centrally located and just 10-20 mins drive to places like Esplanade, Bara Bazaar. There
is no much amenity other than enjoying room but two nice attachments are there. Disco and Tea Bar.

Breakfast should not be missed. Very tasty and beautiful Presentation for serving.

Improvement needed with reception team on customer attention.

I have stayed at Samilton several times over many years. The maintenance level has dropped. The room furniture and fittings need an upgrade. The complimentary breakfast is meagre. There seems to be a disco in the building (or parties) that result in a lot of late night noise. The location is convenient, taxis are available outside. There is a late night dhaba two minutes walking distance away, in case you need good, hot food at odd hours. Over priced hotel.
