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

The location is good if you want to be right near Park Street, but other than that my 3 friends and I were pretty unimpressed with this hotel. The staff was not helpful at all and our room was not worth the price. We paid around 40usd a night for a 'deluxe triple' which was pretty much a double room... More

The location of the hotel is really great. The staff is also quite good, but not perfect. Unfotunatelly our room was not clean - the bad was dirty with shoes traces. When we asked for changing the bedsheet, the guy started sweeping it with a rag instead.

Me along with 4 other friends went to Sunflower guest house as we were referred by a friend who stayed in this hotel quite a few times. We needed 2 rooms and we wanted to stay 3 nights. But, the management asked full 3 nights advance which was really ridiculous.

I was somewhat puzzled by the contrasting reviews on here, but think I may now understand why. We stayed twice in a week, and had two very different experiences. The first stay was great. The management and the staff (of course the lift man in particular), were all very helpful and attentive. The room was large and clean, and the... More
