Travel Blogs from Kolkata (Calcutta)
It's Monday and we finally have a sleep-in, followed by a leisurely breakfast, before we go out and check out Kolkata. It's a tad muggy and 32 and no reason why we would want to stay in the air conditioned room at the hotel.

Needless to say the city was mostly asleep with the homeless zizzing on their sheets of newspaper or rolled up under a blanket on the warm roads.Kolkata is one of the places in India which uses flowers more so than other cities and there …

I do have a relative born here in 1888 - Mildred Rose Sharpe, first born in a long line of females, most starting with the letter M - Mildred, Mable, Muriel, Maud and Mercy, with one male Charles who dies in what is now Pakistan. For most of the time, this family lived in …

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.
