3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 November 2013

hmm i was there for a bank audit and i stayed at Akash quiet a few tyms. the rooms are clean and nicely done, the staff and the manager is good, polite and the food at the restaurant is very good. i was shocked to get that kind of food at the place like purulia. it is centrally located and very good for a stay.

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 May 2013

It is a nice small town hotel. In fact I was rather surprised to discover that such good accommodation hidden away in this one horse town. I had reached the place at midnight and taken a rickshaw ride from the quaint old station , but was surprised by the activity that was till going on at the hotel. The staff is very efficient and polite.

The only watering hole in town is situated in the basement of the hotel and the next evening I went down just to experience the bar. The scene was just out of a out of James Hadley Chase novel , with the loud drunks slopping about. Smoke hung thick in the bar and there were people sitting, standing and just walking around. It seems that everybody knew everyone, and a few of them even slapped me in the back.

Food is good, the hotel arranged a beat up Ambassador car for my trip to the hinterland. This was the only place in India where you could get a taxi for Rs 500 a day plus fuel. The tariff was rock bottom with just Rs 900 for a double AC Room.

Overall a pleasant surprise. Highly recommended.

Room Tip: Check out time is 12 Noon, Rather surprising for a small town hotel.

I reached Purulia on the 24th April, 2013 at 10-45 p.m. on official tour. I had a booking in this hotel for 2 nights. The hotel is centrally located. The charge of the a/c room was Rs. 900 only per night. Manager and staff members are polite and courteous.

I noticed that the room and the bathroom were not so clean. There were stains on the walls and floor. The bed sheets and towel were too old with holes. Bed-Sheets have stains & bathrooms are stinky. overall the place needs an overhaul / renewal and cleaning up. It seems to be targeted for budget travelers.

The worst part of this hotel is it's food. I took the food for the night reaching at the hotel. But later I avoided their food. I went to 'Chas Mor' at the 'Dhaba' with my friends to have an excellent food.

It is also true that it is not worthy to expect any better hotel than Hotel Akash in a small town like Purulia.
