The Pipal Tree Hotel opened its doors to the City Of Joy, aiming to provide the travelers with the warmth of the Indian hospitality. The hotel was inaugurated in the presence of eminent Bollywood actress Huma Qureshi, Mrs. Sushmita Sharma (Executive Director), Chiranjib Chatterjee (Executive Chef) and Prashant Sharma.
The name of the hotel has been derived from the ancient tree in India. It is under the shade of the Pipal tree that the tired travelers used to take refuge. This is a humble ode to the oldest place of rest in the Indian culture. The hotel has thirty five rooms. The location of the hotel is strategic. It is located in New Town, Rajarhat and is nearest to the airport. The motto of the hotel is the “Continuity of unspoken traditions”. The lush green lobby and the symmetrical marbled floor will have a soothing effect on the tired travelers. The innovations can be seen in the designing of the hotel. “This is an Indian hotel and the designing is also very Indian. The rooms and the suites have wood work and handicrafts like kantha stitch and patachitra. This gives a vintage twist to the rooms and the suites. The bathrooms are also given a vintage touch. Instead of the regular metal holders, bamboo has been used for the purpose of keeping clothes or towels. There are different themes for each lobby. A big Bengali library has also been designed and the big arm chairs can easily transport one to the yester years. We seek to provide five star facilities at four star rates. This will enable us to appeal to a wider audience base” said Sushmita Sharma.

The colorful posters and the comic characters give a relaxing feel to the café. Raya is the lounge bar of the hotel.
