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

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.

The hotel is very near to the Howra station. Rooms are spacious and reasonably good with all aminities. The best thing about this hotel is 24 hrs room service and the food is good though the prices are a bit of higher side. The time they took for serving is little bit longer, but the food is very hot and... More

Its a decent/average place to stay. Very near to Howrah station. Staff is co-operative. Food is good. The only drawback is the smell of alcohol/booze that emits from the bar/hotel in the basement. Suggest rooms on the higher floor. Avoid 1st floor. Value for money.
