It was just ok for the price. the combined toilet and bathroom was too small. and the room was fitted with ac but not a warmer. no supply of hot water in cold weather. it is just ok for sleep. the location on the map is also misleading. please update the location.

During the month of Jun/July 2012 I have stayed two times in this hotel along with my daughter's admission purpose in Colleges at Kolkata. Though the rooms are small but it is Ok for staying in the Hotel during summer season with AC facility.
Pros:
Situated in Park Street area, i.e Central Kolkata.
Cheapest amongs hotels with AC facility.
Hotel Management is good and helpfull.
More or less neat and clean.
Breakfast/lunch/dinner are available in adjacent area.

Cons:
Entry path of the hotel is very very bad.
Some of the Hotel boyes are very bad, without providing any service they demand tips. If not given they offended. If possible don't seek any service from them, do it yourself.
Home service is also available, but it will cost double of the actual price. Avoid home service as you are staying in a budget category hotel.
No internet facility available.

Room Tip: Ist and 2nd floor are better than ground floor.

Awful location. I wouldn't advise first-timers in Kolkata [or anyone for that matter] to take up any hotel on this street. The area is awful, almost shockingly so. Touts and agents all around trying to sell thei rhotel to you. Extremely shady place! We saw Paramount, and then tried looking around for other options-but all seemed equally bad/worse.

Hotel was strictly OK. Just a place to dump your bags and yourself- and go off to sleep [so that you can forget the surroundings you are in]. Bathroom had a lot of insects. They managed to get us dinner [limited options-one vegetable which we had to do with]. The staff were ok; except in the morning how they thugged us by pushing us into a taxi and quoting a really high price for an extremely short distance 'cos we were new to the city.

BAD EXPERIENCE!Complete thumbs-down!

It was a very nice experience overall, the stay was comfortable and service was very good.
The rooms were quite and pleasant.
It was value for money.
I would definitely make a visit again when I come to Kolkata next.

The hotel is located at a very bad locality and at the first sight you would wonder why you chose to stay there.

We were given a double room that was smelling bad due to lack of ventilation, but we were upgraded to a tripple room at no extra cost.

The room service was ok and you would get great and fast service if u tip them for every service they provide.. The room was cleaned everyday and bathroom was neat..

The hotel arranged a taxi for us early in the morning.. which I think is a good service.

Overall the hotel is an ok place to stay.

Pros:
1. Clean rooms
2. OK room service
3. Responsible staff

Cons:
1. Bad Locality

I stayed in a non a/c room for two nights booked from inasra for 440 INR per night. The room is ok but the bathroom can be cleaner than this. It's in the tourist area and is not difficult to find. It's in a lane off Free School st., which now has another name. It's near the junction of Kyd street.
