The Glenburn Penthouse, Calcutta

A sophisticated boutique hotel with a fabulous central location, the recently opened Glenburn Penthouse enjoys 360-degree views from its position at the top of a shiny new office building.

One of the city’s finest boutique offerings, The Glenburn Penthouse oozes style and grace. A tranquil space away from the bustling streets, the hotel has an understated yet sophisticated style complemented by traditional colonial décor, antiques and artwork. Each of the nine suites are light-filled and wonderfully spacious, boasting grand four-poster beds, original furniture and large marble bathrooms.
