Stayed here 5 nights. Loved it as soon as we saw the room. Oh that bathroom. Soft spot in our hearts forever. So clean and nicely done. Interesting set up with bathroom on external wall and the room internal but meant there was a bit of insulation from the outside noise (Indians stay up late!). Bed was large and comfy,... More

Having been told about this hotel from another traveller I checked it out on TripAdvisor and decided to give it a go. Lots of reviews said to book a room, but I just rocked on up and managed to score 4 night's there. But I also would advise booking in advance as it is very popular. I had a room,... More

We stayed here for 2N. this hotel is definitely one of the good budget accommodation opportunity you'll find around Sudder Street, Stuart Lane. Prices are more than fair and most importantly, the price was lower than all the other similar hotels in that area. It's clean Hotel in a quiet street next to all shops, restaurants and public transport possibilities.... More

That hotel gave us shelter and a nice room in the middle of the night! We had a room to ourselves, could choose between aircon and just fan. Own bathroom, really nice staff and atmosphere is great. Location is actually 5 Stars, you can get to the Victoria memorial, Indian museum, St. Pauls cathedral and Park Street by walking distance!

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.
