we found this place in tripadvisor and wanted to make a reservation by telephone. We called and told them, we want a room for one or two nights and maybe would stay longer, but cant tell now for how long. They answered very unfriendly, that they would only do reservations for 5 to 6 days stay. We tried to explain,... More

Lots of great reviews on this hotel make it sound fantastic BUT.....First off all it is Cheap. Very cheap and you have to remember that. What you get for your money IS fantastic but its far from perfect. Hot water that runs out in only a few min , dampish rooms , peeling paint etc. You need to mentally prepared... More

Harry and the staff are very friendly. The rooms were clean, there's hot/warm water running in the washroom, loved the environment. Hotel galaxy felt like my home in India. When I go back to Kolkata, I would stay here again over any other places on Sudder St!

This place is a real OASIS in Sudder Street. The rooms are clean, and the owner and his staff are always very attentive to their guests. The rates are quite low, which makes from this hotel the best value for the category in the Sudder Street area. Warmly recommended.

The hospitality and cleanliness of this place as great! I felt right at home in this guesthouse. The owner was like a father to me during my stay and was so helpful. My room was bright and clean and relatively quiet for the busy streets of Kolkata. It is on a side street so was away from the main streets... More

We had a big and more or less clean room except the bed sheets and towels. They might have been washed but they were not clean at all. Since this is a common situation in Indian hotels we did not expect that much and used our own sheets and towels. Bathroom was nice - compared to other Indian hotels -... More

Sorry, But i have to say this hotel is very overrated by former reviewers. My stay here was cut short by myself as my room was infested with bedbugs ! Upon informing the management a rather well used spray can was quickly furnished which means two things; one that this is a common problem and two they don't have the... More

I came to Kolkata for 4 weeks with my 3 daughters to volunteer with MCs. We booked 2 rooms at the Galaxy 3 months in advance based on the excellent reviews. When we arrived there was only 1 room available, but it was large and it had a king sized bed and a twin bed, so all four of us... More
