The Glenburn Penthouse in the centre of Calcutta is ideal for those who want to be in the heart of the city, yet prefer a smaller, boutique hotel. With only nine rooms, it is clear to see the attention to detail that has gone into creating a homely yet luxurious feel.

Developed by the same owners at the enchanting Glenburn Tea Estate in Darljeeling, The Glenburn Penthouse is a mix of old and new. Each room has a colonial theme; the large four poster beds and other antique furnishings blending in with the bold fabrics and sleek and modern finish. The marble bathrooms in particular are elegant and have both large rainforest showers and bathtubs to enjoy an evening soak.

Guests can choose a room with a balcony, or for those wanting a little more space, there are two rooftop rooms which have their own gardens complete with jacuzzi.

The main highlight of the hotel has to be the rooftop which boasts a pool and the perfect spot to enjoy some Bengali cuisine. Overlooking the Victoria Memorial, it offers a romantic setting after a day of sightseeing.
