Kolkata (Calcutta) is known for its grand colonial architecture and the Mother House, headquarters of the Missionaries of Charity, founded by Mother Teresa.

It is north India’s most chaotic city.

Better prepare yourself to experience all the sights, smells, sounds, and scams of this before a visit.

Pro tip: Remember to set your minimum/maximum price, travel dates, and sort by review ratings. Book sooner rather than later if you already have your dates set. Cheaper-priced rooms and hotels with high reviews tend to get fully booked faster, especially during busy days like weekends, holidays & peak tourist seasons.
