It may be defined as a guest house. Rooms are not clean and equipped with primary needs. Shabby.

Staff in this hotel apparently don't know how to smile. The room was very old, bathroom not clean and AC iced-up so we had to switch it off regularly. The bed was that hard, at least no westerner will find any sleep.

Had a good time staying at one of the apartments at Allenby. Was part of a group with freinds for my best freinds wedding in Kolatta. Located next to the Forum mall and near Spas, shopping and good restaurants. Please try Kewpie's for a quaint feel with good authentic Bengali food.

My mum has stayed at the Allenby Inn before and was happy with the value of the rooms so we returned there as a base for a shopping/sightseeing holiday. What a mistake!

When we arrived past midnight, the room was not ready. We were made to wait until 2am until we were given our room.

Mum had been assured we would have the same room as she had used previously but instead we were led up to some dodgy, dirty, seedy room a few floors above the actual hotel. It looked like it was part of someone's house (it was off a living/dining room with a kitchen). As we watched, the beds were set out and dust and filth came pouring out. The bathroom was disgusting and I don't want to think about the colour of the unwashed toilet.

We complained and so the next night we were given a much nicer room in the actual hotel. These rooms are much nicer and cleaner which is why I have rated the hotel as "okay".

However, our treatment on the first night ruined the stay for us. When I asked to speak to a manager I was told that he could not speak English. When I refused to pay, the manager was found and he actually could speak English. Quick learning, eh! Again, I was basically threatened with violence unless I paid my hotel bill in full and stopped causing a fuss. The manager did not seem to care about the level of service we received - I suspect three foreigners do not cause enough impact to be worthwile.
