Whats your budget ?

Hotel O2, 5 min drive from airport. Upper medium budget. I'd say you will get a decent room in the $ 60 - 70 range or upwards.

Hotel Kings Crown is also in the area, but lower budget and quality.

A 15 min drive along VIP Road and you can find Host International and a few others, not bad, nothing special.

Just one word of advice, to secure a room, get there early.

On one fateful night, my Delhi-Kolkata spicejet flight got delayed by two hours and I had a harrowing time in finding a room for the night, I was sitting in a pedal rickshaw and searching for rooms in the lanes of a seedy looking locality, ultimately I had to settle for a very tiny and not so clean room. I do not remember the hotel name, but it was on right side from airport exit.

There are several small hotels along VIP Road that cater to mostly low budget tourists, KY. You should have booked into Kings Crown or Host. Slightly more decent than the general lot in the area, but not by very much I should add. Hotel O2 is a new addition with a bit more class.

Right ! Actually I had some work at Harish Mukherjee Street and I was thinking that I'll get down at 10 PM and will take a taxi to the main city itself, but I ended up landing at 12:30 in the dead of night, So I had to settle for this place, this place was on main road itself and the boundary wall of airport was just across the road. I somehow survived !

Thanks guys.....

i was wondering if the Netaji international terminal has any accomodation facilities for overnight stay.

If yes, i would much prefer to spend the night in the airport itself.....

Nope, don't do it. Easier to go to the O2 and refresh yourself. The terminal is not so well equipped, its basic. You could spend the night but it wouldnt be very comfortable.
