“cheap and better rooms than exterior or reception suggests.”
Reviewed 13 April 2012

The approach to this hotel is pretty awful..but once you are on the floor with the bedrooms everything is perfectly okay and good value and close to all the local attractions.There is also a place where you can sit out on a roof top terrace..a welcome respite from the bustling and noisy streets of Kolkata.
All rooms are well above street level.There are lifts up from reception and generally,all the staff were obliging and friendly.
(I wouldn't recommenfd this hotel to a lone female traveler/inexperienced traveler WITHOUT FIRST CHECKING IT OUT YOURSELF FIRST HAND.

Room Tip: Check out yourself before commiting/booking..especially if you are an inexperienced/and /or female t...

I made my reservation there prior to my arrival in India, as Hotel Maria would not do any reservations. I can recommend this hotel, which is situated right around the corner from Sudder Street. All was ready for me when I arrived at 5:30am in the morning, coming from the airport. My single room cost Rs. 550 and was relatively clean, with hot shower, fan and TV. They would have had an A/C double room for Rs 1000. No bugs in sight, as far as I can tell – (bed bugs usually find me when they are around). Street noise (car horns) was hearable when the window was open. The Sikh receptionist first appeared to be a little grumpy but then revealed himself as a very honest, friendly and helpful person. Strangely enough I was pretty much the only Western tourist there, which I think should change, when this very recommendable hotel is presented in your guide book. It is probably the best budget option in this region of Kolkata. The location of Sudder Street and Marquis Street is perfect.

I paid in advance, and had an e-mail correspondence with staff to confirm that I would be able to check in when my (3am) plane arrived; however, when I got there the doors were locked and barred. I was forced to find (expensive) lodging elsewhere.

Not worth the money, not worth the hassle, and I would never place my trust here again!

Room Tip: there are plenty of other hotels in the area - go elsewhere.
