The history behind The Samilton Hotel
The Samilton opened its doors for business in November 1991. It was one of the first full-service hotels in the city, offering all air-conditioned rooms, 24-hour room service, laundry, direct-dialling, and a host of other amenities, making it one of the best value-for-money hotels in Kolkata. Our goal was to offer 5 star amenities at a 3 star price.
Since our start, our hotel has been graced by a host of celebrities, including Azim Premji (Wipro), Bismillah Khan, Hari Prasad Chorasia, the Railways Cricket Team, Sanjay Bangar, Murali Karthik, Shakti Kapoor, Pradip Kumar, Ronit Roy, Shweta Tewari, Kaifi Azmi, and some of Bangladesh and India’s top contemporary artists.
Even today, we continue to strive to provide our guests with a value-for-money experience by offering many complimentary services which includes free breakfast, free bed tea, free snacks, free Wi-Fi internet, free ironing of clothes, free shoe-polishing, free newspapers, and free loaning of DVDs of all the latest movies.
We also continue to regularly upgrade our rooms so that they meet international standards of comfort, luxury, and security. Our biggest wealth is our customers who have been loyal to us for over 25 years. With this support, we continue to grow.
