Excellent place. We (Dutch senior couple) spent five days in this guesthouse and we enjoyed our stay. The management is professional. Our room was spacious and excellent maintained. On the same floor there was a big lounge where we could sit, read and order some drinks. The hotel is conveniently located with Park street (moderate to expensive restaurants) and Sudder... More

For this price, it is obviously not a luxury option. For this price, though, it is really value for money. To get a place in this location for this price is fantastic. The rooms are small, but clean. Go for the AC ones, since they seem to have been recently renovated. As for food ...one can order from the various... More

Well located hotel in downtown Calcutta, close to most of the tourist spots. Clean room, staff friendly and helpful enough; my only gripe was with the paid wifi access and the over-insistence on paying up-front when no actual service could seemingly be guaranteed! Otherwise, just what you'd expect and a little more from a cheap and central hotel option.

Dear Sir, Thanks for the positive response. We are glad that you enjoyed the stay and have nice things to say about us. We keep the wifi paid so that people do not misuse it. However the insistence to pay up was not nice and we have asked our staff to be more sensitive on this. Hope you choose to... More

Thanks for your feedback! Please note that we use only kurlon mattresses which are the largest selling in India. We did investigate the matter and realise that you showed the staff something which they were not sure of. Later they confirmed they were not bugs but color stains. You wanted to then change the room and wanted a free upgrade... More

This is a mixed review.. I arrived super late and everyone was asleep. Had to yell to wake up a guy next to the elevator. Got given a more expensive room than I booked and had to pay that price. I bought 2 hrs of internet (which only worked if you sat right next to wifi box) but when I... More

This guest house is situated in a very old vintage building, very close to the Park street. The stairway is very spacious. There is a nice sitting place on the roof top. The service is quite ok. But I think the rooms can be bit more cleaner. An average sized room for 3 persons cost us around 1500 Indian rupee... More
