While making plans for our visit to Kolkata, I searched for budget hotels in Kolkata that provides excellent services and accommodation and finally decided upon Hotel Bawa Walson Kolkata, which was located at Sudder Street in Kolkata. It was about 19 km from Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose International airport and 11 km from Howrah railway station. After we reached the Kolkata Railway station, we got in to the cab sent from the hotel and reached the hotel within 20 minutes. The hotel was impressive from outside and as we got in, it was equally beautiful. It was a contemporary 3 star hotel with all facilities for the customers.
The room that I booked was spacious, well-decorated and furnished, equipped with all modern amenities. All the rooms in the hotel were air-conditioned and equipped with mini bar, refrigerator, telephone, safe, LCD TV with cable connection, hair dryer, daily news paper and internet connection. The attached bathroom was neat and provided with all facilities including toiletries, bath towel and 24 hour hot/cold running water. On the ground floor there were special rooms for senior citizens and physically challenged people.
After getting refreshed, we had our lunch from the multi cuisine restaurant in the hotel called Bombay Bru, which served Indian, Continental, Chinese and other international dishes. It is open 24 hours a day. There was also an open air restaurant in the hotel named Bar & Bistro Grill, which served traditional Arabic dishes. We were also served complimentary breakfast in the hotel including Indian as well as Continental.
Other facilities offered at the hotel include parking area, laundry service, doctor on call, daily housekeeping, 24 hours room service and front desk. There is also a /business Centre for the business men who need to conduct any meetings or conference.
Asking at the travel desk, we learnt that it was located close to Victoria Memorial, St. Paul’s Cathedral, Shahid Minar, Fort William and many other important tourist places. Our stay at Hotel Bawa Walson Kolkata was really memorable and the staff at the hotel was well-experienced and well- trained, ready to help you in any difficult situation.
