FD 339 Guest House at Salt Lake, Calcutta is one of the very good place to stay. It is neat, clean and well served place with good quality food similar to home made. There are dedicated attendants round the clock for service and all are well mannered and caring in nature.

Room Tip: Room no 202 has best location

Thank you, Mr. Prabhat. Staff is the most relevant aspect in hospitality as they are the direct touch points for all guests. No guest house or hotel can sustain itself without ensuring professional behaviour and a welcoming attitude in the staff round-the-clock. We consider it our greatest achievement to have sustained this quality of service over the last 11 years and to have ensured satisfaction in guests like you who chose us over hotels. We look forward to your next visit.

we are a family with a one year old kid.we happened to stay here for around 2 months as my husband has some official engagement here in kolkatta. So i and my son also accompnied him. We stayed here because there was a tie up between my husband's organisation and this guest house. It has been a terrible experince staying here. They do not have even the basic amenities like RO, microvave, washing machine.inspite of these kind of short coming we stayed here due to good staff behavoiur in intial one week. But after that things were in dis guise.Staff behavoiur was so rude. they even keep the food in Hygiene conditions. Pickle is kept uncovered on table. On asking the staff that please cover this. I got such a rude reply that " this is way it is done". One day i noticed that the pillow which we were provided was sooooo very very dirty . On asking the staff to replace the pillow he said ok. Next day i noticed it was the same pillow inside the cover. This thing drived me crazy. On asking the staff why he didnt changed it. He replied "madam yehi hai. Baki to isse bhi ganda hai". On saying that i will call up their boss, he said ok i will get you a another one. And then he replaced the pillow. So many bad stories to write up about thisplace. They charge whatever they feel like on fooding and laundry. Do not show any records or any details of what they are charging us.will just you a lumsome bill of unresonable amount.To sumarise very bad expérience. Will not suggest for a family stay.

We were two Canadian families, each with two children, who stayed at CF-216 for a week in January, 2014. Overall, the stay was a pleasant one, but there were a few things we didn't realize in advance. Simi's website notes that attendants are on-call 24/7. This means that two gentleman are also always in the apartment. They sleep on the couches in the living room or the kitchen floor. I believe this is standard in India, but I didn't appreciate we would not have the full apartment to ourselves, and it took some getting used to (especially when one took his afternoon nap out on the balcony). The two attendants were very polite and helpful, though it would have been useful if their English was a little better.

We also found it quite distracting to have other Simi employees coming and going throughout the day, every day. People rang the doorbell as early as 7:00 am, and called as late as 9:30 pm. Our first day, we had three people in the apartment for almost three hours as some drawers were being fixed. Nobody explained to us why it had to happen then, or why so many people were milling about.

With a few small touches, the apartment could be quite nice. The couches had many stains, and the towels were thin and dingy/grey. Each guest received one towel, and I would have appreciated also getting a hand or face towel. There are mothballs in all of the drains and throughout the bathroom, I believe to keep bugs from coming up the drains. I accept that this is necessary and standard, but we weren't expecting it or the resulting smell.

Being two families, we wanted the extra space and CF-216 provided lots. The two attendants cooked marvellous meals for us, and when we needed a few items from the store, they made arrangements to get them for us. The level of service in this respect was quite high, and both attendants were great with the kids.

In sum, the apartments were fine but a few small touches would go a long way, especially for western guests. It took some getting used to have people around all the time, but they were quite friendly. My biggest recommendation is to better organize the coming and going of other Simi employees so that guests aren't always seeing people come through the apartment.

Thank you so much for the kind words and your suggestion, Ms. Amy. We shall certainly consider it to organize the footfall in our guest houses, especially when bookings are made for personal purposes. The presence of attendants is desired by our clients to provide 24X7 service as well as to ensure security for travelers, many of whom are corporates. However, a balance is naturally needed to adjust to different guests' convenience. Therefore, thank you for your feedback. It will be our endeavor to incorporate the same. It has been a pleasure to serve you and we look forward to welcoming you again to Kolkata.

someone has said - "Home is where the Heart is".
People who are traveling to kolkata and wondering which is the best place to stay for your business travel, specially who are having business in the area of salt lake, New Town, Rajarhat, then this is the nearest, cheapest and the best place to stay.
People who come for business at the heart of kolkata near to Park Street then that's also very close by from this place.
This place just has Awesome Food, Awesome Stay, Awesome Staff, Awesome Location and everything is just perfect for making your life comfortable after a hard day's @ Work.
So next time when you are kolkata, look no further.

I visit Kolkata every qtr and stay at The Executive, it is located at FD 339, Salt Lake. It is very tastefully done and is most relaxing. I would like to thank Abhay and his team for all the personal attention. The food is exactly what you would expect, - a home away from home

Thank you, Mr. Puri. The very idea of our niche corporate guest house is to provide the luxury of hotels while staying as relevant as a home to executives who have to travel continuously for work. We are glad to have provided that and hope to continue to do so.
