Review of Hotel Hiland, Kolkata

I stayed overnight at the Hotel Hiland, Kolkata for my next day morning flight from Kolkata airport. Though the hotel was a bit pricey (INR 2300 for double occupancy and INR 300 for an extra person plus taxes), I went ahead to book it for its location which was closer to airport yet a little crowdy. The hotel is located just opposite to the Ruby Hospital on Bypass. Hence one can easily get cabs or some eateries even in odd hours. When you reach to Ruby junction take a turn towards Kasba- Gariahat road and you will find a petrol pump on your right side. There is one lane just opposite to the pump, the hotel is located on that lane. 
I booked my double room through cleartrip at a discounted price. The room was nice, spacious and clean. It had LCD, mini freeze, phone, ac. The bathroom was ok as it appeared to be a little old. The drawback of the hotel was that it did not have any car parking!! They had in room lunch/ dinner/ snacks services. The breakfast was included in the price of the room. They had a good variety of food ( chinese, moghlai and south indian). The food used to be delivered within half an hour. 
There was some water problem on the next morning. I called the reception at 4:40 a.m. and a person arrived within 10 minutes to check the problem. And it was nothing but air trapped into the pipe which caused the water problem. I was impressed with their services at that odd hour also.
It took around 20 minutes to reach to the airport and it was a nice stay at hotel Hiland.
