The first hotel we stayed at in Kolkata. It was nice to know we had somewhere with good reviews booked ahead for us, as our flight got in very late. The taxi didn't know where it was, had to stop and ask directions, so by the time we got in it was after midnight. Even so, the AC was blissful,... More

The hotel is centrally located and within walking distance of sights and restaurants. It has AC but an old one without instructions, that is difficult to navigate. There was supposed to be warm water but it did not work during our 2,5 days stay. The reception is on the top floor, an extra staircase away from the lift so not... More

A good standard basic guesthouse with some peculiarities. The location was good near Park Street, which has a strong selection of restaurants and isn't far from attractions. The room was big and comfortable and there was no shortage of hot water. And the peculiarities; our room was in a little pocket, next to a room where a family lived and... More

Decent rooms at a very economical price and situated at the heart of the city at Park Street. Rooms are comfortable enough and the mansion overall is quite clean. Wi-Fi is only accessible from the lobby and does not work inside the rooms. I don't understand the rationale behind it. No point bargaining as the manager won't budge... Which is... More

We stayed here for four nights. The terrace is fantastic, the rooms are very basic and clean. The staff are very friendly with many house men sleeping on the floors around the hotel at night which provides an extra element of security. The bed is extremely hard, we both left with very sore backs. In addition to this don't be... More

The guest house is located right by lots of good cafes and places to eat, and we had a room that had basic but adequate facilities. The pillow cases were dirty and we asked to get them changed, but for the money it was a good place to be based. Breskfast would also have been nice!

Sunflower Guest House is in a great location in Kolkata close to Park Street with many bars and restaurants including international restaurant brands for a taste of home. Although Kolkata was sometimes a little overwhelming for a visitor I always felt safe and enjoyed the area and location the hotel was in. The hotel itself was clean enough and the... More

This guesthouse is located just behind Park Street and is walking distance to Sudder street, New market and the metro. Room was clean (22), hot shower with good pressure and I absolutely adored the stairwell and building. Also has a nice roof terrace and common room to chill in, staff very helpful and aside from the odd rule about wifi... More
