“Place to stay in kolkata near park street”
Reviewed June 3, 2012

This is very old hotel but recently renewed the property. Now this is a good place to stay in kolkata with all the required facilities. They have single seated rooms too to stay as single. The location is near to park street and metro station.

Room Tip: Depend on budget and they can offer 20% discount so ask for discount before check in.

We arrive in Calcutta late one night and took a taxi to New Market. After a long search we got tired and settled in at this place despite all the odds.

Its a very old house with high ceiling with creepy holes that may intrude upon guest privacy. Bathrooms were the dirtiest you can imagine with big holes through which one can see the nextdoor toilet floor.

By the look and staff behavior it seemed the place is used for non tourist activities as well.

Had a creepy feeling in the room as if being watched so please do check the rooms beforehand and take precautions likewise if you have nowhere else to go.

If not for budget issues and late arrival would not have stayed here. So i would recommend that you spend a little more time in the area nearby which have many more options available.

Its a big no no for couples and specially single women traveller from my perspective.

At twice the price, you can stay in the new part of the Astoria Hotel. We stayed in the old part. The room was big and it had good air conditioning that stayed on all night, but I don't think they clean. The bathroom had someone else's hair on it, the pillow cases had hair oil and hair on it, and the sheets were stained. The two chairs in the room were filthy. We asked them for more sheets, pillowcases, etc., and I covered up the chairs. Then I asked them if I could borrow a mop, squeegie and some soap to clean the bathroom floor. They were up in no time to do it for us. That night, I left the light on in the bathroom. Mistake! When the street light went out, all the bugs went into our bathroom and died on the floor. Not a good drain on the bathroom floor either. The restaurant food wasn't all that. One night I ordered veggie korma, was the only one in the small place, and 2 hours (when they were closing) I got the bill for my lassi. "What happened to the korma?" "We don't have that." "Why didn't you tell me?" "I forgot." He apologized. Location is ok though. Right by the Indian Museum. We walked to the Victoria Monument and gardens and through the huge city park where folks were playing cricket and flying kites.

Room Tip: They said we had the best one in the old section; room 22. We joked that it was the next black hole...

I can strongly recommend this newly refurbished hotel in Sudder Street to everyone who wants to have a few comfortable last days/nights in India prior to their departure or also to have a smooth start to travelling in India when arriving. I had a newly refurbished single room for Rs 2000, with hot shower, flat screen TV, A/C, fan. They also offer room service and a proper breakfast buffet, the later is included in the price. The room (No. 306) was very clean and quiet, with a view onto a lovely roof garden and old tree, which is something special in an otherwise very loud Kolkata. The staff is friendly and very helpful. There is an accessible roof on fifth floor, unfortunately without chairs or flowers, but that might change as the refurbishment has just been completed.

Stayed here for 2 night and the experience was just ok. The receptionists were robotic and I felt they had little idea about their rooms. Anyways, pulled through to a spacious room with attached another room-size bathroom. Old fashioned and they really need to clean/change their carpets. A below standard size TV was in the room with an just doable refrigerator. The air conditioner was not cooling enough. The good parts of the hotel is it is spacious compare to other tiny hotels in the surrounding area also a quiet one. If you can compromise with the old fashined, bit unclean rooms it may be worth spending the night here.
