Fairlawn Hotel Kolkata Reviews
Oct 02, 2010
Fairlawn hotel is in the Sudder road area of Kolkata. I only stayed there one
night, when we first arrived in India. It is a very nice, if slightly
eccentric, hotel. The rooms were large and comfortable, and the photos I took
don’t really do it justice. The real strength of the hotel is in its friendly
staff, and in the range of mementos, souvenirs, antiques and random things in
the cool, light hotel living rooms. It is as if your great aunt had travelled
her whole life then opened a hotel. There is everything from quite valuable
looking, beautiful vases to those strange dolls in flamenco dresses people
brought back from Spain in the 1960s. There must be four model Eiffel towers at
least, and some interesting shells, and a really beautiful bronze plate. there
are also lots of newspaper clippings about the hotel and Kolkata. It is a
really fascinating place to spend a morning just looking at things.
Fairlawn has been run by the same lady since before independence, and is still a
cosy, friendly feeling hotel. She is now in her 90s and we met her on our way
out in the morning. The hotel is the exact opposite of the soulless, business
orientated approach to travel. I really liked it.
The hotel has a restaurant, but it was closed by the time we got there.
Breakfast was nice. The area looks quite backpacker friendly, although we
weren’t there very long.
