“Shoe string budget at Oriental”
Reviewed December 12, 2013

What do you do if you are on a shoestring budget in Kolkata? If you need to spend the night in a really budget hotel to just rest for a couple of hours, this is the place to go..
But be forewarned - the beds are not comfortable, the rooms are not clean enough, and the room service is slow..
The blankets and sheets we were given were not sparkling clean and the towels too looked worn out..
So if you are on a tight budget, gor for it..

Very dirty hotel. Floors were very dirty. Toilets were not cleaned at all. No remote for AC was given to customer. Geyser was not working. I had to go to ground floor from 4th floor several times to bring hot water for my child. No room service at all. Bed sheets and blankets was not clean (filled with human hair).

Room Tip: Please do not choose this hotel for your stay in Kolkata

Very good hotel. Sardarji at reception was very helpful. Well maintained rooms and toilet. The only issue was there was no good restaurants near the hotel. Only Bangladeshi cuisine was available there.

The hotel is small but very much maintained and neat and clean. Service from staffs are well respond. Staffs are very good in manner and helpful. Only thing is the ground floor entry is required to be cleaned especially near the steps beside the "Dhansiri Restaurant." The location is very much prime and very exclusive for offices as well as shopping.

Room Tip: Check your AC prior to stay in room. It may be noisy to some extent.

It is a bit of a grim old place but if you aren't a fussy type it's really not that bad. The location is very good and is the best thing about this place. Staff at the reception are a bit charmless and the place isn't the cleanest but it's good value for money and I always felt the place was secure and safe. (A previous reviewer talked of cockroaches and rats - I stayed here for a week and never saw either.)

this hotel is a true budget hotel for those who just got robbed or mugged in kolkata. terrible entrance and overall terrible, the rooms are nasty little potholes filthy atmosphere and the bathrooms are stinky as hell. M sorry but i cant appriciate anything about this place except for the DAWAT restaurant on the ground floor, which is by the way not managed by the hotel (phew)

Room Tip: PLZ dont Stay here, the streets have better pavements to sleep!

Very Good location, budget hotel. Shohag Bus to Dhaka is just opposite side of the hotel and green line bus to Dhaka is 3 min walk. New market is 5 min walk. But you can't expect much from it. AC rooms are clean but others are not so.

Room Tip: Visit rooms before checkin
