Fodor's Expert Review Fairlawn

13A Sudder St., Kolkata, West Bengal, 700013, India

If you want a taste of life in the Raj, stay in this Kolkata landmark that dates from 1801 and is in a neighborhood now popular with backpackers and volunteers. A small hotel, the Fairlawn has memorabilia-cluttered walls, a winding staircase, and a very homey feel. Waiters wear gloves, a gong sounds during mealtimes, and rooms have chintz bedspreads and old-fashioned bathtubs.

PROS

  • atmosphere of yesterday

CONS

  • neighborhood is a little seedy
