The spin-doctors may tell you different but to my eyes Kolkata is hell on earth and the hotel circular fits right in to this description. According to the BBC there are 200 million slum dwellers in India and a lot of them live in Kolkata. Situated on one of the busiest streets the traffic noise was only just exceeded by...

I paid about 1,100 rupees a night for a tiny boxed room here... the sheets were clean here, and staff are friendly and helpful, but I'd say you really can get somewhere else for the same price that is a LOT nicer. Also the room had so many tiny cockroaches running around, which got in my bag and all my...

We stayed at the Hotel Circular for 2 nights as our first stop in India. The location was pretty good. After crossing the busy street we were able to walk to the sights, the Victoria Memorial, Sudder St., India Museum, etc... We ate at the restaurant several times because it was convenient, but realized as we traveled more in India...

I have seen real dumps in Calcutta, and this place is not that bad. I was relieved. The staff were really helpful (they want tips, but I didn't mind) and let me check in quite early for which I am grateful. The room was nothing special. There was a crack in the toilet when it flushed, flooding the floor, there...

This hotel can be considered as cheap and best hotels of Kolkata. Rates were around Rs.1500/- which is good for that location. Blankets and pillows were clean. Surprisingly I couldn't find a single cockroach in toilets and behind bed. Staffs were cooperative and helpful. The restaurant of hotel is fairly good and served some of the best Bengali dishes. AC...

The location of this place is very good. Within walking distance of some good sights, including the Mother House. The staff was very friendly - they opened the restaurant just for us so that we could eat before leaving for the airport and they flagged a cab down for us in the rain. One guy even ran to an outside...

I had to go to Kolkata for some urgent work on a very short notice. Had called up my friend who made a reservation for me at this hotel (the only vacant one available in that area), just the last night. As soon as I reached the hotel at my check in time, I was informed that the room is...

The rooms are reasonably well equiped for the price, there is a fair amount of outside noise as you are on the main road but all the main attractions / restaurants are within walking distance. The staff are frindly and helpful but dont let them...
