Guide for booking hotels in Kolkata:
Kolkata, ‘The city of Joy,’ is soaked in layers and layers of heritage and culture, and peeling off each layer to look beneath the hood is a very rewarding, once-in-a-lifetime experience. Many stay options are available in the city to enhance your visit to this beautiful city. Many pocket-friendly stay options are along or within walking distance of Chowringhee Road. The area is handy for numerous colonial-era attractions and the metro and is an ideal place to stay for first-time visitors. A few economical options like villas and guesthouses can also be found around BBD Bagh, a commercial hub past the northern end of Chowringhee Road and alongside the Hooghly River.
Park Street, the city’s classiest area, is the best bet for top-end hotels. The properties feature classy and spacious rooms, pristine pools, verdant gardens and on-site restaurants serving Bengali cuisine. Besides hotels, the area is lined with inviting bookshops, dazzling jewellers, trendy boutiques, western-style supermarkets and cafes. The suburbs in and around Ballygunge are the second most popular choices for upmarket hotels.
