The word Hotel Aura is defined as “a special quality or feeling that seems to come from a person, place, or thing”. Well, there are several reasons that make Hotel Aura the perfect place for your stay in the City of Joy.
Nestled in the heart of Kolkata, Hotel Aura is located on S. N. Banerjee Road – literally one of the arteries of the city. Tastefully done rooms, prompt service and attention to detail are hallmarks of Hotel Aura. From here, you will be close to the railway stations (Howrah Railway Station and Sealdah Railway Station), and commercial districts (Dalhousie, Chandni and all of central Kolkata). Bus travel is easy as the main Dharmatala bus stand is a short walk from the hotel.
When it comes to entertainment and soaking in the famed ‘Calcutta culture’, Park Street – also known as ‘The Street that Never Sleeps’ is at a walking distance. For any cricketing events such as the IPL, the famed Eden Gardens is also just a short walk away. For cultural activities, theatre and other performing arts – the Academy of Fine Arts, Kala Mandir and the ICCR are all close by. Not to forget, the Indian Coffee House at College Street which has given birth to many a revolution.
Many more such destinations are within a 20 minute distance from the hotel, and are too many in number to list here.
Heritage buildings are a symbol of this city’s history and endurance. The Victoria Memorial, Tipu Sultan and Nakhoda Masjid, Writers Building, Town Hall, Indian Museum, Birla Planetarium, St. Paul’s Cathedral, Shaheed Minar and the famous Kali Mandir at Kalighat are all very close by.
