Well, as you can see my other 45 reviews i am not person who gives negative reviews. I spent some time in low budget guest houses and this was definitely not my first visit of india. But Capital guest house in kolkata is a really unique experience. Negotiated 700 Rs room to 500 Rs and stayed only because i had... More

In this summer vacation, I had planned to visit Hyderabad and Vizag, but in the mean time I got my research work notification from my university, hence all of a sudden plans changed and ASAP after finishing that, I re-planed to visit Kolkata with my wife. On the pre-monsoon period enjoying on the streets of kolkata is really amazing, with... More

This hotel is in very bad condition. Kolkata is known for it's terribly overpriced hotels and the poor condition that a lot of them are in, around Sudder Street especially. This place is no different, if not the best example of such. Originally I was going to give this place 2 stars and suggest that if you think you can... More

No sense of hospitality instead all parasites seeking to suck ur money for every small reason It shouldn't be called rooms it would be appropriate to call them concrete box and cleanliness surely not even close to godliness. Stay at your own risk

I booked the stay from Stayzilla, and single room costed ₹500 per day. I needed a single room in budget range, and the stay offered almost all I could expect, other than a decent bathroom. The bathroom is basically a small untidy cubicle. If one can adjust to that, you won't find any other issues as the hotel is located... More

I have stayed here twice, and since I am used to low Indian standards, I found it ok. It is rather quiet, and off Sudder Street, and close enough to New Market, where I like to eat at a food stand with excellent Dosa and Rawa Idli and Sambar (vegetarian places are rare in Kolkata). The owners of Capital GH... More
