“A Simple and average place to stay for a night.”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 April 2011

I strongly believe that a comfortable hotel room needs to have a neat, clean and hygienic bathroom. Any hotel which does not have a good bathroom does not meet the required quality and appreciation even if it has all the other facilities.

At Hotel Gardenia, the photos on the website will definitely cheat you. A very average hotel and pathetically maintained bathrooms. The staff at the reception counter would talk as if they are giving you a free service. Do not expect any thing else other than a night stay and a OK sort of breakfast. Room service is better than the service that you can hear from the reception.

I think this hotel thinks that having an AC room (which is a must in Kolkata for travellers) / TV (which is also a must) / a mini-fridge (which is helpful) / running hot water (which is a bare necessity) / room service (which is required in any hotel) ... is enough to call this a luxury hotel.

The location is very far from the airport ...
Infected with cockroaches.
To pay Rs.1500/- + on a hotel like this is a just a sheer waste of money. Just opposite this hotel is another hotel, which is far more superior .. a bit more expensive, but it's worth it, because of the cleanliness!!!!

It had a gaping hole in the sink of the bathroom, with cockroaches coming through it ...
the sink was not in place .. and when you held on to it, was coming off!!

The hotel has a very quiet atmosphere, located in the city's central area, the hotel offers good connectivity to all places of interest. the staff was also courteous.
Most importantly, rates are slightly on the lesser side, compared to other hotels providing similar services. Rooms are not big enough, but fine enough if you just want to drop in at the hotel at the end of a tiring day at shopping.
A good place to stay in Kolkata.

We were 3 guests in an Executive AC room. I have prebooked the room. So nothing had to be paid at the hotel.
The hotel rooms were spacious and had 2 beds, which were suffcient for all the guests. The service of the staffs was also fast and they were courteous.

In the booking, continental breakfast was included, however they offered indian breakfast, which was very nice.

The good thing about the hotel is also the location. It is near(2km) to US embassy/US consulate on Ho chi min sarini, where we wanted to go. Infront of the hotel, there is a nice restaurant to have good indian food.

  • Liked — The location is excellent, with the best of Kolkatta is nearby

We booked in advance and paid more than the average for an executive suite. We arrived early in the morning and once we had roused the staff we were able to access our room which was handy but we were really disappointed with the hotel and the room. It has a grubby feel and the room was windowless (might not have been a bad thing given its on the main road). The room had not been maintained and was a bit sad. Everything had stains on it and i didn't really feel relaxed. We stayed one night and found a lovely hotel around the corner that was much cheaper and much nicer.
