Arrived without a booking and stayed for 1 night. The room was nice, but the carpets in the corridors was well beyond it's best, both stained and lifting in various places. The Staff were very friendly, the service was great and the room was very clean and presented nicely.

I had a really terrible experience at Peerless Inn. While the location is excellent with a hint of old world charm...that is where the positives end. The rooms are musty and the carpets stained.

I have been staying in this property from last 15 years,and have witnessed its downfall over the years. Totally unprofessional staff at the reception,no toiletries in the bathroom,poor housekeeping and below average breakfast spread were enough to make up my mind for calling it my last stay in this very old and established Kolkatta hotel.
