“To be avoided”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 December 2012

Considering the pictures and description, and forgetting to read all comments I booked this hotel for 3 nights. Wall paint in the hall is decrepit. The room was terrible, walls full of stains , bedsheets were half clean (?), bathroom dreadful. I managed to have bedsheets changed for clean ones as well as towels. They even gave us toiletpaper!! But still room was shabby. I visited somme others they were all in same dishevelled conditionTop of all, one fully benefits of the air conditionning of the restaurant on ground floor and it is very noisy. Breakfast is also poor, mainly indian food not much choice. I would not at all recommend this place. It seems it is hardly better than a guesthouse but a lot more expensive.

Room Tip: Avoid the place

We had stayed In Mangalam a few months back. Reception staff were good and polite. Rooms were neat and clean. Breakfast included in the tarrif was great. Rooms were spacious and well maintained. As for the other hotels on Sarat Bose Road this hotel has great connectivity to the central Kolkata. Nothing to complain about. Great place to stay.

Would stay again if my usual guesthouse was not available. Expensive for what you get but that's Calcutta .
Staff friendly . Room service meal was slow but good . Reasonable breakfast included .
Street noise was intrusive during the night.
Location - not bad and room was fine. Bathroom fine.
A non veg restaurant opposite and veg restaurant on site

A good option for Calcutta if you want moderately priced.

I'd give this hotel 3.5 stars. There were some problems with my stay- at first they had no record of my reservation and it was 2 am so I may have had to go back out into the street (but they let me stay and it turned out to be fine), a number of the staff didn't speak English, there was sometimes no hot water, and I found a bed bug in my jacket- but they changed my room promptly when I complained and I had no more problems (with bed bugs) and it is very inexpensive for what you get. Rooms are decent, breakfast is decent, and they even brought it to my room for no charge. I had extremely inexpensive massages in my room each day, about $500 rupees for an hour, which was great. I'd stay here again.

Hotel Mangalam is a relatively new hotel ; just about a 15 minute ride away from the very well known Park Street. The small hotel itself looks neat. The staff is attentive and helpful.

We checked in to our executive room, not large but good enough to accommodate 3 individuals with an extra bed. The beds were extremely comfortable with crisp linens and soft pillows. The room service is quick. The bathrooms are relatively big and clean.

The hotel has just one restaurant – with an extensive menu though. The food is relatively good. The breakfast buffet is not an extravagant spread. A choice of continental and Indian breakfast; with either South Indian or Punjabi dish on a rotational basis.

The hotel is extremely simple hence one must not go with a fancy picture in mind. The hotel is value for money with good basic facilities. We had no complains.

Room Tip: advance booking since the hotel is small

Hotel Mangalam - Kolkata
we chk in on the 7th april for 4 nights stay .....we took a deluxe room tht they have.since it could fit it one more extra bed ...the hotel is very economically priced and it also had breakfast included in it .the hotel is centrally located in the area of sarat bose road .it is around 45 minutes drive from the airport .thet have buffet breakfast for the guests it is mainly southindian food and milk and flakes and toast also with fresh juices. the hotel staff was quite polite and helpful.nxt to the hotel couple of steps away is located the lakshmi narayan mandir .and on the opp side of the hotel there is a famous dhaba (food joint) called jai hind dhaba...it is according to me the onli place open for food till 2.30 am in the morning .if this place was not there we would be staying hungry at night .this restuarant has excellent punjabi and chinese cuisine.and they also serve dinner to the hotel room.the rooms at the hotel are small but it is well equiped with fridge n all...the bathrooms are decent with new shower fittings and all.the beds are also comfortable.this hotel is very reasonably prised as compared to other hotels in the same area.i would again go back to this place and stay when i am there for business.its price factor and central locality will pull me back to the hotel.

I stayed there during a business trip. The room was booked by the company.We reached late in the night and had just gone out for dinner in a dhaba infront of the hotel when we saw smoke coming out from the hotel.The staff cooperated and swaung into action and called the fire bridage immediately who controlled the fire.
Not a safe hotel to stay.The staff was cooperative and locals gave all help.The GM or owner did not showup to take care of the Guests.In the middle og night guest vacated the rooms and were left to themselves for all transfer arrangements.
