TravelPod Member ReviewsHotel Lindsay Kolkata (Calcutta)
This Hotel is in a handy location, situated near the New Market and is thus in the centre of the bazaar shopping area. Staff are very attentive and aim to please. The room has everything one needs and the restaurant on the roof-top is an absolute winner with a wide choice on the menu and a staff that go out of their way to please.. Highly recommended.

We tell them we are looking for single bedcovers suitable for children with appliqué of animals and children. We are successful and find some tribal designs as well. We are getting tired now and worried that we can not carry much more. Each visit we learn more about the history of textiles in India, its seems to go back forever. This trip has enriched our understanding and us ...
... beds and minimal cushioning for your butt to sit on, with prison like bars for windows) Where the hell is AC2?! Another side note – We've been able to secure a booking number or confirmation for all hotels in India, except for the one in Varanasi...which is our supposed next stop. Over the past month I've emailed them many times to reconfirm our room overlooking the river and pick up from the train station. The painful irony of it being us not showing up, and not ...
