Budget Hotel with decent experience
on Sep 27, 2016
I have stayed in this hotel twice. My first stay was in Dec, 2015 and the last one was in July, 2016. I found this hotel quite budget friendly. The hotel is located at prime location with Chandi Chowk Rail Station located hardly 200 meters far. The hotel has no in-house restaurant. But good eateries are available nearby like Alibaba and Shere Punjab restaurants. Historical places like Indian Museum and Shahid Minar are also nearby. So, in short, you will not be bored by the location of this hotel. However, the rooms are average, but good enough for the price I paid. The staff was very helpful in moving my luggage to and from my room. Overall, it has been a decent experience.
Budget hotel at prime location
on Mar 17, 2016
I have stayed in this hotel earlier on 2-3 occasions. It is budget hotel at prime location, very near New Market. The rooms are spacious and clean. However the blankets needs dry cleaning more frequently. The staff at reception is courteous and check in check out is smooth. However you need to inform them in advance if you are paying by credit card. There is no restaurant, but have room service which is slow. The food served in okay and reasonably priced. Overall a good experience
Excellent service at an affordable price

I have been using this hotel for the last 17 years.
Staff are like family now. They look after my needs well and are very reliable.
Location is good for shopping and communication.
Hotel food is very good, plus lots of restaurants nearby.
Centrally located with good proximity to a lot of attractions

We visited this place during our kolkata & sunderbans tour back in March,2014. Thumbs up to this hotel, locality wise, since it is centrally located, close to Park Street, the Metro is easily accessible within a few minutes ride to most of the attractions.
However, the good things end there. The rooms are pretty cramped up, congested. The toilet was ok. There is a restaurant downstairs and the food there is pretty average. The staff here is dont care about the guest much, don't expect much in this front.
You can think about going to this hotel only if you are looking for a hotel in terms of close proximity for all the attractions for sightseeing.

we are four friends went to Kolkata for some official work, we decided to stay in Kolkata for two days and visit the places. so we booked hotel Esplanade Chambers from travel guru got confirmation from travel guru and on the way to hotel we called the hotel to inform we are reaching there but surprisingly hotel guy said there were no rooms available. After one hour struggle with the Travel guru call center. They arranged 2 rooms at Hotel Heera and promised that was good deal than the previous hotel.This hotel is very well located in the heart of the City very near to Esplanade in the lane beside of DGP office on grant road.
Hotel is surrounded with the shops. Hotel entrance is very small once you enter the hotel reception is good. Hotel manger was help full and nice guy. Hotel rooms are clean and comfortable. There was a refrigerator in our room I think they haven't cleaned it from long time but because its winter there was no need to use that. Hot water is available 24 hrs.
I definitely don't suggest this hotel for families or official meetings, but I can surly suggest the hotel is good people travel without their family like with friends traveling together for a trip...
you can walk to Esplanade metro station so you can reach any part of the city in less than half an hour. They doesn't have in house restaurant so they do room service for this,Food quality is OK according to the rates(Found Rates are very less than Pune's smaller restaurant) ,
they will take orders for food till 10.30PM so you can roam around the city and come back and order your food.
over all OK to stay for 2 nights, if don't expect too much from a hotel.
