Calcutta is a city where good cheap housing options are generally limited. There aren't many hostels, and the backpacker hotels that line the Sudder Street area are generally quite gross, full of bugs and poorly mantained. However, Hotel Galaxy is certainly an exception. The rooms are quite clean and affordable (900 per night for an AC room), and are perfect... More

By now you can tell by all the other great reviews that Galaxy is well-recommended. In my case though, Galaxy came through in a time of need when I had overstayed my visa and needed assistance to show proof of lodging to obtain an exit permit. They had no obligation to help since I wasn't staying at their hotel but... More

I went to volunteer in mother's house when I stayed here. The host Mr Harry Singh is very friendly and very helpful. Safe for single women, nice atmosphere, cozy rooms in budget. Best in the area. Mr Harry is very helpful, and a perfect guide for Kolkata. if you are a bag-packer then this is the place.

I have spent 6 years traveling to and from Kolkata running an NGO. Galaxy Hotel is honestly the best A.C. hotel in the area for the price. It is run by a really awesome nice family and has all the comforts of home. There is wifi (which is rare in Kolkata hotels) it has A.C. and non A.C. rooms. The... More

We only stayed here for one night, but the hotel was great. We got a very nice room without air con for only 900 rs. The staff was very helpful also and it is probably the best area to live in Kolkata, it is a half hour walk to the Victoria memorial, and very close to the Indian museum which... More

Hotel galaxy is definitely the best accommodation opportunity you'll find around Sudder Street. Prices are more than fair and absolutely ok for this peaceful place in the heart of Kolkata. It's a beautiful and very clean Hotel in a quiet street next to all shops, restaurants and public transport possibilities. New market is 5 mins near and everything is walkable... More

This is a great place to stay in Kolkata!

This is a great place to stay in Suddar street. It is geared towards back packers & volunteers. So very basic but very clean & safe. Only negative is one staff member called Paul who is very intimidating as he wants a tip before you go. He seems to control the taxis to & from airport so you're in a... More
