Reception was unhelpful and unhappy, such a shame as the it was such a beautiful building with a lot of character. The highlight was the old school manual lift and the friendly dude that operated it who met us on our floor every morning; the only smile in the whole place! Stay sweet elevator man 👌

Stayed here 4 nights in early December 2014, paying 1400 Rs per night for a double room with bathroom (Western toilet - even supplied soap & paper!! Clean enough, no problems). We really enjoyed the stay - however thought this was far overpriced for what it is! The staff are very friendly and helped us out with some trouble trying... More

My husband and I called to ask if rooms were available since a friend recommended the guest house. We were told rooms were available so we took a taxi from the airport to their location. The older man speaking with us asked questions like "are you Indian?" "Where are you coming from?" And then lied to us saying they did... More

We stayed at Sunflower Guest House for 3 nights in December 2014. The room was a good size and had a private bathroom. However, we found the price a bit steep but the staff were so friendly and helpful that we didn't mind paying a little more. They even helped to bargain down the price of a taxi for us... More

....is the Sunflower Guest House! When looking for rooms in Kolkata it was difficult, everything was really expensive and we weren't sure where to stay...we just knew it couldn't be on Sudderstreet as that sounded way too noisy. We came across this place and it seemed perfect. However, trying to reserve a room proved to be a headache. They wouldn't... More

To my suprize this hotel / guest house wasn't as bad as l thought it might be. Its a bit hard to find, although finding the address in Royd st is fairly easy as it's just off Park st. but then you have to take the lift to the top floor and walk another flight of stairs to get to... More

A bit more than we had intended to spend, but the cheapest we found in the area. Very well located, and rooms are nice. Staff is decent. No major winner in any regard except for location. Still would recommend it as your cheaper option to be in the heart of Kolkata.

Gud day viewers, The Sunflower Guest House, in Calcutta was a good experience. Its cheap and affordable. Very convenient as its in the heart of the city, Park Street, is just a 7 minuite walk from the Guest House. Transport being one of the main issues for travellers, I must say this is a very convenient option. The rooms are... More

Sunflower guest house was an ok place to stay. Our shower and toilet broke after our first night there and didn't get fixed until days later. However the location is great and the rooms fit larger groups nicely.

Third time to India - well travelled mature budget travellers. Booked on line and also emailed the Guest House informing arriving after 12:00pm. Prompt reply saying OK as they have 24 hour check in. Arrived and all dark and locked up with chain across the front gates. Would have been stressful for some but we know India and with a... More
