We had chosen this to be the place to stay for my brother's in-law who had come all the way from Haryana for shopping. We chose this because it was found to be best among whatever hotel is available in the area. Tough we never tried other ones in the area. Well the very first thing was the booking. It... More

A third grade hotel. Rooms are pathetic. No cleanliness, torn towels, dirty bed sheets' they do not even change towels and bed sheets. No hot water' flush not working. Do not get carried away by the exteriors or by the ambience of the reception. Worse is that they even forge customers signature on the room service bill.

My stay at Ashoka Hotel, Howrah was necessitated by an abnormal fog induced delay in my connecting train. The exterior of the hotel provides the impression of a well maintained hotel, probably the best in that area- just a 10 minute walk from the Howrah station. To be honest, the hotel is quite clean and the rooms are spacious and... More

This hotel is perfect place to stay just near Howrah Railway Staion.service and behaviour of all the staff ,specially Mithilesh ji is very good. The best part of the hotel is its 24hrs Check-in and Check-out facility which makes it easier for travellers to checkin even at late hours nd check out 24hrs from then. Only suggestion , every budget... More

Need to improve the reception services, arrangements for rooms booked through SMS is a complete sham, room interiors are fine and food is good. Must accept credit/debit cards, cash is too much of a hassle for a traveller.

Hotel reception ask full payment of tariff before allotting room. No credit card facility. Payment for each day to pay in advance. Only advantage is hotel is near Howrah Rly Station. Some time even booking on phone or SMS they do not reserve the room.
