I enjoyed my stay at the Bodhi Tree Guest House, but had some disappointments as well. My lodgings included four things important to most travelers are 1) I had the feeling of being safe, 2) my room was a good size and provided basic comfort, 3) the room was clean, and 4) the staff was friendly and willing to help....

This is a very good B and B. It is located in quiet residential neighborhood a short walk from the efficient Metro line in south Kolkata. The rooms were clean, large and well appointed. Likewise for the washrooms. The beds were large and comfortable. The manager was available each morning and briefly in the early evening to answer questions and... More

I'm very surprised by the negative reviews preceding my own - we had a wonderful time at the Bodhi Tree at the end of December. The room was spacious and comfortable (yes, it's dark, but that's exactly what you want if sleeping or relaxing!). They even ordered a special sports channel for my partner so he could watch the EPL... More

As the title of this post suggest we had a terrible experience at this hotel, as in the middle of the night I felt a mouse in my hair and on my face- imagine the jump! It is difficult to blame the staff for it, of course, and the incident was unfortunate. What revolted us more than anything wad the... More

The Bodhi Tree is a little way out, but close to the metro. We had two ground floor level rooms which I found a little dark and oppresiv , the upstairs ones looked better but we did not see into them. The staff were very helpful but only a few spoke english. The breakfast was basic but adequate. The room... More

I stayed three nights and was extremely disappointed. The room was nice enough, however the staff was revolting. Few spoke English and the ones that do are nothing but rude. I was charged $60 (Rs 1800) for leaving a night earlier, even as I was out of the room before check out. I was spoken to by a young lady... More

We stayed here for the second week of two weeks teaching in Kolkata. it is not that cheap and we were expecting a bit more for our money. However we had a sitting area and a kitchen of sorts. The staff were very helpful and the breakfasts adequate. We were also able to order an evening meal which was very... More

Off the main street in Kolkata making for a pleasant and quiet place to stay. Close to the centre of town so very convenient. A short walk or tram ride to Victoria Monument. The included breakfast that I had was more than enough for me and very delicious. Very accommodating staff. I had a very late arrival (1.15am) and a... More

The Bodhi Tree is located in a small but quiet back street and so the place was quiet. On entering it is well decorated with lots of interesting art. The accommodation was lovely, we had a spacious room near the front entrance. The bed was comfortable but the bedding was a little unusual, there were not standard sheets and blankets... More

Nice and clean rooms, very friendly staff in a place that makes you feel home in Kolkata. With the art gallery attached and each room having it's own theme this is a really nice place to stay while you're in Kolkata. Nice beds and a clean bathroom allow you to relax and prepare for a day of sightseeing.
