The location is good, just a half block from Park Street. The building retains it's colonial charm. The room was clean and the service from the staff was fine. Hot water worked most of the time. Loved the hand operated elevator with attendant. Only real negative was that wifi is only available from 10:00am - 10:00pm and only in a... More

The location of this hotel is very good. It is very near to Park Street. Rooms are very clean. Bathrooms are a bit small but clean and has hot water facility. Locality is very peaceful. Blankets provided were also clean.

Very clean place for a guest house. It was well lit and the staff were quite friendly. Sunflower is located right behind park street which is the business district and is very clean and orderly. Water was hot in the shower. Movies on TV non stop lol, if you like watching movies at night. Always felt safe. Cost was reasonable.... More

You don't expect any sort of typical hotel services but the place is very clean and safe for women travelers. It is located in central kolkata, with a metro station nearby. if you are planning for budget stay, you can try this... More

Kolkata has a lack of decent budget places. I had stayed many times in various places of questionable quality in the city. Reading many positive reviews on this guesthouse, I had rather high expectations, after I had reserved a deluxe double room. At that point I did not know that it meant it was an AC room, with respectively higher... More

We spent our last night in India at the sunflower guesthouse - 23rd Jan 2015. It was clean and offered western comforts. We paid 1915rupee for a large double room with bathroom. Shower was hot & pressure good. We had stayed elsewhere on our first stop over in Kolkata & the water was smelly, no pressure & Luke warm! Most... More

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
