“Average Hotel for night stay”
Reviewed January 20, 2013

Hotel reception ask full payment of tariff before allotting room. No credit card facility. Payment for each day to pay in advance. Only advantage is hotel is near Howrah Rly Station. Some time even booking on phone or SMS they do not reserve the room.

Room Tip: Room at Basement are noisy as loud orchestra in bar and no signal for mobile.

The hotel is very near to the Howra station. Rooms are spacious and reasonably good with all aminities. The best thing about this hotel is 24 hrs room service and the food is good though the prices are a bit of higher side. The time they took for serving is little bit longer, but the food is very hot and fresh, so worth waiting. The location is so convenient. You can just walkdown to the Howrah railway station and also to certain shopping areas.
However, the worst thing about this hotel is the staff. The staff in the reception area, particularly one elderely gentleman was horrible. He is not at all courteous and messed up everything. I had asked for a taxi to go to airport. He asked me to pay the amount in advance (which is double than the normal price) and arranged an old car (it is not a taxi but private car). On the way to airport the car brokedown and I could not take another taxi, because I already paid to this man. With much difficulty I reached the airport. Later I came to know this gentleman does this private business of providing a personal car posing as a taxi and make money. So do not depend on these people, you have plenty of taxis outside the hotel. However, I still recommend this hotel as I found several hotels around this area are worst than this.

Room Tip: Corner rooms are bigger

Its a decent/average place to stay. Very near to Howrah station. Staff is co-operative. Food is good. The only drawback is the smell of alcohol/booze that emits from the bar/hotel in the basement. Suggest rooms on the higher floor. Avoid 1st floor. Value for money.

We stayed here for 3 days, and i feel the rates are genuine and the most important thing is that the restaurant is open for room service for 24 hrs. thats nice for a busy traveller. the food quality was also good. and the rates are genuine. The rooms are specious too.

Room Tip: on my view the 1st floor rooms are beter choice.

I stayed at Ashoka Hotel for a night. It is located near the Howrah station and it takes 5 min cab ride to reach Howrah station from the hotel.

Now the rooms. The room are good especially the ones on 1st floor. The room had a mini fridge, good AC and good spacious bath. The bed was comfy and the food tasted too good.

The service was very prompt. In all, a great value for money hotel in Howrah.
