                After we checked in, the first room was given to us was Really really bad laity we asked about better room or we change 🥵 hotel. Finally they have given us a room which wasn’t bad. Breakfast was good we stayed five night. As per room rate is bit pricey.

                The staff were generally good except for staff tending the driveway who were rude and looked for every opportunity to make a quick buck even if dishonest. The hotel entry is reasonably appointed however, the room was rundown and dirty e.g. mould all over the shower, stains on bed linen, paint poor, furniture worn. Location is good with easy access to transport and the park street area and maidan.

                Location Food And staff performance

                I stayed in this Hotel from 21st feb to 23rdof Feb 2013. I chose this hotel for its location and price. I found this to be the most value for money hotel. A Delux Room would cost u 5k & Suit 7.5k during season. The staff were very helpful & co-operative. Food was very good. The Breakfast was Good. This hotel would suit everyone, be it solo, couple or family. The best of the bestest part is its vincity to the Park Street and local or street market. I recommend this hotel & would certainly put in here in my next visit to Kolkata. Room Tip: Ask for Discount!! Ask the bellboy to recommend you the best room!!

A bit on the expensive side but worth it, given the benefits just outlined. If I return to Kolkata, I would probably stay there again.

                Staff assistance and good English.

                Incredibly good stay. I asked for a quiet room in the back, and got it. Staff helped with unusual requests, such as arranging taxi to the Internationally certified hospital for a lab test. Also, helped with getting a cell phone, which is complicated in India, but the bellboy made it easy. Their English was way better than most hotel staff in this part of the world. I would not make Kolkata my port of entry if I had to do it over. Other cities give better impressions of India.

                Very Central, reception are well trained,

                Clean, comfortable, value for money, centrally located right next to the Indian Museum and within walking distance to Hogg Market. The only minor set-back were the cleaners, keep knocking on my door whenever I came back, looking for thing to do in my room, even after they had done it when I am not around. They just want to check whether its clean, whether the toilet had tower, etc and I know they just hoping to get tips from me. Can be irritating when they knock too many times by different cleaners, all thinking of opportunity. There was once, 2 of them wanted to come in to check. Hotel should control their staff to stop "harrassing" guest. Hotel recep arranged a yellow taxi for me, for 100Rp more than I paid for in the airport, in a way to avoid being rip off if I were to get one on my own.

                Location

                We arrived very early in the morning but the hotel took us in but charged us an additional half a day which was acceptable. However, there were always a bunch of room service workers that were lurking around the doors waiting to accept tips even if they didn't do anything. Worst of all, there was one afternoon where we so happen were in our rooms, that they rang our bell, came in to give 2 bottles of water which we did not ask for and should have been complimentary and there were 3 of them standing there asking for tips! However, the rooms are clean and the location is great, services from the receptionist is not too bad as well.

                the lytton is in a perfect location for seeing kolkata. the staff is super, friendly and efficient. the bar is a great place to hang out. the hotel is close to the indian museum, the new market and the metro line, which is the fast way to get around town. the breakfast is one of the best hotel breakfasts ever, good bengali food.

                we had a good stay here. the room was fine, despite our view of air conditioners and lack of decor. it had everything we needed to be comfortable. the hot water supply was uneven. the hotel is a good base for seeing kolkata. since the church next door to the hotel feeds street people, the location attracts resident beggers, but they are not overly aggressive.

                I feel that the person responsible for housekeeping should be fired. The curtains are torn, the towels are dirty, bathroom unclean, floors throughout the hotel are probably never cleaned, windows unclean -- dirt all over. The only bright side is the restaurant food, not the decor which needs updating. Overall, the hotel is a substantial property but in need of updating and repair. Staff although helpful never smiles....should be taught to smile!
