“The best you'll get for the price”
Reviewed 4 August 2014

For whatever reason, budget hotels in Kolkata are crappy and not very cheap. It's hard to find a place for less than $30USD/night that isn't dirty and inconveniently located. Sunflower isn't great, but it's clean and located near Park Street and New Market. Don't expect great service and breakfast isn't included, but if you need a place to lay your head, you could definitely do worse. No top sheet is provided for the bed (I don't understand WHY hotels don't do this), but we asked for one and it was given, as was an extra towel. You're on your own with toilet paper, though. We were told there was free wifi, but it didn't work in the rooms. I never did figure out where in the hotel it DID work. If you want more amenities and better service, you'll have to up your price range.

By far the best thing about Sunflower is its location - just a short walk from many great restaurants and other Kolkata attractions. Otherwise the place is no better than average. There is a lobby area you can work or read in, but no wifi. The rooms are OK size, but definitely no frills - things like toilet paper, extra sheets, water are not included and will have to be purchased from one of the boys who work here. If your looking for charm beyond mere acceptability, look elsewhere.

Wow this place won gold in the Pathetic customer service awards!!The concierge was more interested in finishing his game of solitaire than checking me in, the staff are lounging about watching tv or playing on their computers. There is only wifi access on the third floor lobby which they try and charge you an additional 30 rupees to use and is turned off at 8 pm and it took 20 minutes for 3 staff to work up the motivation to turn it on! My question about tours of the city were answered with 'catch a taxi', do you have a map with the sites? Wasn't answered at all (I suspect he was thinking about his game of solitaire)

Great place to stay during a trip to Kolkata . Have stayed there several times . Excellent location Rooms are quite comfortable .All basic services are available round the clock. Staff is very helpful and have always helped us with all required information that we as an outsider asked for .......be it looking for a cab, finding a specialty restaurant or locating a specific mall. Over all good experience and absolute value for money staying in heart of Kolkata.

It was quick trip to Kolkata along with family for 3 days. There were so many things to do - all planned during this short stay.

Location of Sunflower at the heart of the city - yet tucked inside a nice little street away from the hustle bustle of Park Street was a big advantage for us.

Rooms were clean with comfortable beds. Washroom was clean with round the clock supply of hot and cold water. What I personally missed was a bit of attached open space / balcony for that smoke :-)

All the staff were nice and courteous. Extremely prompt in keeping requests.

Would suggest - a small pantry is maintained to cater to tea-coffee and light snacks. And may be a tea-coffee maker on request - should one needs that cup of tea when planning to go out early in the morning before the city wakes up :-)

The location is good if you want to be right near Park Street, but other than that my 3 friends and I were pretty unimpressed with this hotel. The staff was not helpful at all and our room was not worth the price. We paid around 40usd a night for a 'deluxe triple' which was pretty much a double room with an extra twin bed shoved in so there was no extra space in the room.
