Nice comfortable stay
on Sep 16, 2017
Good food, good hospitality, only check which room you are getting because there are few compact and congested rooms with split beds and 4 bed rooms with on washroom.
Rest everything is fine. Location is convenient, staff is cooperative, food menu can be customized if you are in conference or staying for some days.

Swagath, south food!
on Dec 29, 2016
Hotel Swagath is situated on the side of Hazra Road in the southern part of the city. Speciality is availability of all south Indian veg menu in the restaurant of the hotel. In fact this was the reason to select this hotel when searched for hotels in Kolkata thru tripadvisor for our stay. The food is very sumptuous and tasty, one must agree.
Staff & management are very cordial and helping. The manager Mr.Ravi Nair is from Pattambi, Kerala who is a familiar friend among the football players & movie stars from Kerala, visiting Kolkatta. He easily arranged the conveyance for our Shantiniketan & Belur Math trips at economic rates.
You would get southern dishes like Idly, Dosa, Upma, etc for the complementary breakfast in addition to all north Indian items. The serving is also timely & pleasant. Mr.Kamraj from Andhra, the senior in food & beverages deserves special mentioning for his sincere services. Room service also good, wifi is available.
Though the hotel is a bit away from the city centre, the metro rail is available nearby, the nearest station being Jathin Das Park, one km from the hotel, from which frequent trains are available to Esplanade and other major spots towards Dumdum. Auto rickshaws continuously ply to JD Park from Hajra road in front of the hotel for a trivial fare of Rs.7/head. Hence moving is not a problem.
The area needs improvement is maintenance of the property. The hotel is very old and rooms, toilets, etc all require immediate maintenance & beautification which would enhance the rating of the hotel. Also room cleaning is not seen done as a routine matter, this is also to be taken care of by the management.
Nearby attractions are Kalighat Temple, Birla Mandir and Gariahat Market. Booking can be done either directly or thru travel sites with 10% advance.

I have visited there so many times for my official stay. Its location is not so great but its ok. Food is good, and people are polite and cooperative. Rooms are clean, but bathrooms of some room are not so big. Overall a good hotel.
