Great location, super hotel with old word charm”

OK first things first, there simply is no cheap, good accommodation in central Kolkata. We wouldn't usually pay the Hotel Lindsay rates but in this case we have no reservations about having done so. Old world charm, big rooms (we had a junior suite), super breakfast, hot water, and the rooftop bar & restaurant became a second home. Loved it. And it's right in the city centre next to the new market.
