The Howrah Hotel, Howrah is one of the oldest hotels in eastern India started way back in 1962. This haveli or kothi was built  around circa 1872 at the time the empire was at it's peak and Calcutta the centre, its second capital.

Housed in an haveli (or kothi - as it was also called)  being the residence of a renowned marwari businesman who was bestowed the title of Rai Bahadur from the British for his exceptional services to the empire, had business interests in opium, cotton, jute, indigo & film distribution in the late 19th & early 20th. Century. He was also commissioner in the Howrah municipality apart from other public positions.

Hand chiselled marble imported from mines of Italy and tiles from Britain adorn floor to ceiling in many places in the hotel. A rare 10ft x 6ft. Belgium mirror is housed in one of its veiled halls. In it's heyday many high ranking officials of the Raj have paid a visit here & it is heard that even the Mahatma, Mother teresa had paid their visits when they were in Howrah.

Converted into a budget business hotel for the discerning travellers in the early 1960’s, located adjacent to one of the busiest railway stations of the world -  Howrah station & overlooking another famous monument of Howrah- the  Howrah bridge, still retains the old world charm, tucked inside the main thoroughfare with a leafy garden with birds chirping at dawn & dusk. Once inside the hotel one cannot make out the din and hustle-bustle outside the hotel, though being centrally located.
