Where to stay in Kolkata

Formerly known as Calcutta, Kolkata is the capital of India’s West Bengal state and a gloriously colorful cocktail of sights, sounds and smells.

Today visitors flock to India’s former British capital to discover its galleries, cultural festivals and colonial architecture, to pay their respects at Mother House, home of the tomb of the late Mother Teresa, and to enjoy a taste of Kolkata’s famous Bengali cuisine.

Rubbing shoulders with the city’s aging colonial buildings are a host of modern day hotels ready to cater for all types of visitors. The area in and around the center is the perfect location for a visit but Kolkata’s public transport system will keep you in touch with the rest of the city no matter where you decide to stay. Kolkata was the first city in South Asia to have an underground railway system, while its slow-but-reliable tram system, auto-rickshaws and taxis will all keep you on the go – although be prepared for delays as the various vehicles and sheer volume of pedestrians can make roads quite chaotic although car rental in Kolkata is available.
