«Un libro incantevole e che trabocca di vita… Succede di tutto nel vecchio, glorioso hotel, nelle sue suite lussuose come anche negli appartamenti della servitù. Nemmeno l'amore e la morte sono risparmiati. Sankar scrive di entrambi con semplicità e partecipazione. E i lettori non possono che essergli grati». –-Guardian –- «Un romanzo straordinariamente popolato come la città che evoca, pieno di personaggi che vanno magnificamente incontro al loro destino». –-Sunday Times–- «I seducenti personaggi di questo romanzo - l'enigmatico manager Marco Polo, l'affascinante receptionist Sata Bose, Karabi Guha, la tragica accompagnatrice, solo per citarne alcuni - sono ormai un cult. ». –-The Hindu–-
