I had reserved a standard double bed for 1000 Rs. Per night, on arrival they tried to push me into a 1350 deluxe room because I "didn't specify", which is incorrect. I had planned to stay for 3 nights and when they tried to charge I told them I would only stay one night instead. This caused them to give me my originally promised rate.
I stayed for 3 nights. The hotel is about 15 minutes walk to both Mother Teresa House and Sudder St area (different directions).
The room was clean, sheets especially. The walls and bathroom were satisfactory, which in India means, somewhat clean.
There is a guy who sleeps in the hall, I suppose to watch the rooms. 24/7 on guard!
The building has a cool elevator, I've never seen anything like it. Must be ancient though, but it works well.
The "reception" is at the top of the building, the staff are very indifferent, don't expect them to help with much.
Overall, this was a good starting point when I traveled India, it offered a good escape from Kolkata at a reasonable cost. I would stay here again, and would recommend it to others, just remember it's nothing fancy but it works.
There is also a McDonalds and a nice Bookstore on Park St, less than 3 minutes walk.
