Least did I imagine I would be spending a night in a hotel where I camped when I was just seven years of age. Yes, I'm talking about a hotel that used to be known as Fairlawn run by a foreigner in a house that was once known as a Canada house. Today the Hotel is known as Elgin Fairlawn just next to India Museum in Kolkata. The Facilities are basic but there is an aroma of the Raj. Nearly after 50 odd years, I stepped into the same space. I'm sure in months to come this will transform itself into a fine Gem in the region in the hands of the Elgin group. Food continues to be exotic and the location is unbeatable.

Fascinating city. Really has the old world charm. We enjoyed Kolkatta. This hotel is also a legend. Could do with some renovation but otherwise a nice hotel with good old fashioned service. Value for money.

This historic property is badly in need of refurbishment, and I'm glad to see it's been purchased by a hotel group with the intent to update it. At one time it was, no doubt, a delightful, charming place with an elegant atmosphere, but it is so far past its prime that now it's just sad and dowdy. The pros: friendly, helpful staff; large rooms; A/C window units that worked. The cons: pretty much everything else--the towels were really thin, the pillows were uncomfortable, the street noise was unbelievably LOUD, and the windows didn't close all the way. Oh, and bring your own shampoo & conditioner as none is provided. It's been a long time since I've stayed anywhere that didn't at least provide shampoo. Plus, they advertise a "beer garden" on the premises, but they don't sell beer. I wouldn't stay here until the up-dating is complete. It's a great location, though, and I do hope the historical aspects can be preserved along with a modern facelift. It could be lovely.

I would concede that the Fairlawn hotel is not for everyone, it's a relic of a by gone age with the plumbing and wiring to go with it! We were told that the Oberoi group have recently bought the hotel I do hope that they don't remove all the character.The rooms are large with efficient fans and air conditioning which is a blessing in the heat of Kolkata,there is also a fridge and tea making facilities,no coffee.The beer garden doesn't serve alcohol or it didn't while we were there which seemed a bit odd.The location is Ideal with plenty of eateries and shops close by as well as the local market.Breakfast was a bit of a hit and miss affair with freshly cooked eggs served with cold beans, mushrooms, tomatoes and chips,not the best start to the day.Certainly a memorable experience staying here and I would be interested to see how it changes in the next few years!

This is the second time I have stayed at the Fairlawn- just love this funky family owned hotel. it is a wonderful friendly respite from the chaos of the city. The staff is uber friendly and accommodating. The rooms are adequate- nothing fancy but comfortable. Like most of India not everything works all the time, but that doesn't ever seem to matter. The hotel has recently been sold- so not sure of its future.
