Sunflower is a no frills guest house in a good location. The rooms are essentially clean with en suite bathroom. There is a quaint old elevator manned by a charming attendant. The roof garden is worth a visit. We took this as our first stop on a long tour on arrival in Calcutta and I have no reason not to... More

Good hotel at tight budget. We stayed for 3 nights in this hotel room no. 1. Room size if okay and it is clean too but the most irritating thing was that this hotel does not have in-house restaurant. So going out for dinner with a 4 yr old kid was a hectic job for me. Apart from that everything... More

You can book a room without any problem with e-mail. They answered me quickly so I thought everything will be ok. But what was our (me and my boyfriend) surprise - I have no idea who answered me but they booked us one night instead of two and they forget we will come during the night (1AM), but in e-mail...

I really couldn't make up my mind whether to spend a bomb or go on the cheap...sunflower won out and so, as it turns out, did I. It suited me down to the ground. I loved the old Brit built building, the staff were uniformly friendly, I liked my room and the Royd Street location was perfect for both Park... More

For whatever reason, budget hotels in Kolkata are crappy and not very cheap. It's hard to find a place for less than $30USD/night that isn't dirty and inconveniently located. Sunflower isn't great, but it's clean and located near Park Street and New Market. Don't expect great service and breakfast isn't included, but if you need a place to lay your... More

By far the best thing about Sunflower is its location - just a short walk from many great restaurants and other Kolkata attractions. Otherwise the place is no better than average. There is a lobby area you can work or read in, but no wifi. The rooms are OK size, but definitely no frills - things like toilet paper, extra... More

Wow this place won gold in the Pathetic customer service awards!!The concierge was more interested in finishing his game of solitaire than checking me in, the staff are lounging about watching tv or playing on their computers. There is only wifi access on the third floor lobby which they try and charge you an additional 30 rupees to use and... More

It was quick trip to Kolkata along with family for 3 days. There were so many things to do - all planned during this short stay. Location of Sunflower at the heart of the city - yet tucked inside a nice little street away from the hustle bustle of Park Street was a big advantage for us. Rooms were clean... More
