“Worst Hotel Experience”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 October 2011

Had a terrible experience at Hotel Lindsay. Money was missing from room after it was cleaned, laundry not returned in good condition, wifi didn't work, breakfast was gross. Management was rude and unhelpful. Staying at this hotel ruined my time in Calcutta and I would like to help someone else avoid a similar experience. Stay away!!

This is one decent place to stay. Rooms are comfortable. Located in the Heart of city. Good buffet breakfast. Room tariff is slightly on the higher side compared to other cities. Restaurant is good and has varied options for different cussine. They have a rooftop restaurant and bar too..

The hotel is located in centre of New Market in Kolkata and is on just walking distance from chowringhee and park street. cabs are available round the clock outside the hotel. Rooms are quite spacious, neat and clean. I was kinda afraid after reading reviews about this hotel but found it a real nice place to stay. the in house restaurant is on 9th floor and gives you a spectacular view of kolkata city. food served is tasty and the portions are quite generous. dont forget to try out their chilly chicken and fish-n-chips when u stay there. but room service was quite late and the room service number was noreply for more then half an hour. or may be that was coz i ordered at 10.30 in the nite and their closing time is 10.45. however few items are available round the clock. 15 minutes from howrah/sealdah train station. they offer free wi-fi but it dint work at all during my stay. i complained twice/thrice with the front office but found all in vain.

overall a nice place but the tarrif is too high.

Hotel is located in the middle of the city but in the market area. It is good for those who want to shop and eat very economically. the surroundings offer a great walkthrough market to purchase cheap stuff for friends and family but not a great choice for high quality stuff.

Rooms are old. They have tried doing some good job for interiors but still priced very highly than what they offer you in return.

Food is ok. Do not expect much from this hotel. If you have no choice then it is ok but not recommended otherwise.

Room Tip: Bargain a lot. They charge more than what they are

I happen to travel to Kol for a business visit and chose to stay at Lindsay. Though it was chance selection but i found the hotel to be a good one.
What is striking about the hotel is its location - just infront of the Hogg Market and close to New Market....it is a blend of History and Mordern Kolkata.
The surrounding of the hotel offers a lot os activities mainly for shopping and eating out with KFC, etc just at the walkable distance.
The hotel itself has a very good staff, extremely helpful, the food served is well made and the presentation is also good.
The restaurant serves buffet and a la cart and is sufficient to take care of taste and hunger.
though hotel offers peace of mind and good stay it is a bit heavy on the purse. But for a traveller who is looking for comfort i would recommend the hotel.
