Boutique hotel in Kolkata (Calcutta)

Celesta is the suavest of over a dozen hotels in the Raghunathpur area that target travellers in transit (the airport is 15 minutes away by taxi). It makes a style statement with big plate-glass lobby walls and an upper exterior looking like a Mondrian painting. Luxurious beds are piled with pillows in art deco rooms with rain showers.

It's beside the well-signed KFC on the east side of VIP Rd, 4km south of the airport.
