Not suitable for business travelers
on Dec 17, 2017
This is a renovated property, where owner tried to give a heritage look to the rooms. Other than bed and furniture everything is contemporary.
All 6 rooms are on the ground floor and the doors open in the lobby towards reception. No need to call reception, open the door and receptionist boy or girl are in front of you, faster than phone call.
105 and 106 seems to be bigger in size than rest of the rooms and are called Deluxe rooms whereas other rooms are Standard.
Standard room size is small and power packed with one queen size bed, small two seater sofa, a table and study table, cupboard and chest with coffee tea maker and 32 inch LED above it.
Room and bathroom were neat and clean without any window and scope for ventilation. Two bottles of mineral water (1 ltr each) with tea coffee maker were complimentary.
Staff ( Naveen, Ali and Tanzila) were very cooperative and always ready to help.
4 breakfast choices (complimentary) and one which I had was really good (aloo prantha with curd and fresh fruits). They have their kitchen upstairs and room service was available.
Location was good ( 7 light point) and advantageous only if you come early and have free time to roam outside.
They have only six rooms and their target customers are foreigners so I don't think that they will every improve or listen to the feedback.
In my opinion not an appropriate choice for business travelers due to the high price and no recreational activities.

Located at park circus seven point crossing on the ground floor of an old building. Stuffy rooms packed with furniture.No way to keep windows open. Has 6 rooms. Bathrooms are just about adequate. No sunlight. Looks more like a hair dressers/spa/massage kind of a place. Only the staff are courteous. Wouldn't recommend this place .

The intention was to create a feel of living in a traditional Kolkata household so you will find these large poster beds, a lovely chest of drawers and some exquisite lampshades.
The location is good (Quest mall is within walking distance) and the staff are extremely responsive and helpful.
The downside, the place is dark (no windows so no natural light), the rooms have a musty smell and there is too much of dust and a bit of noise (from the street). The linen and towels need to be changed. And breakfast served in the room is disappointing.
Baffled by this 'boutique'

I'm going to kill the friend that recommended this 'quirky boutique hotel' to me! This place is overpriced for what it is: dark, damp, musty and dusty. Dirty linens with stains and ripped. Bad smell in the bathroom. Claustrophobic feel to the rooms. Nothing bad about the staff though, their behavior was excellent.
Do not recommended staying here. I still get shivers thinking about this place. Hotel Ivory down the street might be a better option.
Only good thing is location and helpfullness of the staff

The hotel is at the end of park street. rooms and reception are all on one floor.
Check in-We checked in the afternoon. I have stayed in hotels all around India and abroad but never have I stood for a photograph to be clicked for registration(even though we gave our ID proof), which was really weird.
Room- The room given to us was very tiny with worn down linen and towels. The room doesn't even have a window, making it very claustrophobic. You don't have space to keep your suitcase/ open it. The bathroom slippers kept in the room was used ones.
Overall- We paid Rs. 4800/- for the room, which is way over priced. In the said price you could get better hotels.
