Reviewed 25 November 2013

3 star hotel where you can get relaxed for your trip. Located near golf club away from train station and almost 2 hr from airport during busy time ( morning and evening office time). expensive rooms starting with almost 4000 INR ( double bed). clean rooms and beds with AC in good conditions ( usually other hotel have defective ones ) , staffs more or less good. they help in getting taxi and charge their tax too. recomend others.

getting taxi is really easy, breakfast was the only meal that I had & it was good. for a change I saw a tag on the top of refrigerator - items in the refrigerator are complimentary! it was not about the stuff, it was about the intent & was really great feeling.

appliances in room could have been better, refrigerator was non functional, tea/coffee making was a challenge, room had a stuffy smell which was not great, it took quite a while before i could sleep. I wish the wash rooms could have been kept in a better situation with serious attention to the hygiene of the room.

Room Tip: rooms on higher floors, rooms facing the street

Decided to stay here because it is close to airport so if you want to catch a early flight it is better.
Food is pretty good & staff proactive. There is nothing nearby except a hospital so getting a cab is easy at any given time.

Will stay again if opportunity arrives.

Room Tip: Select high floor as the hotel is adjacent to main road.

Stayed a week at this hotel during a business trip to Kolkata. The location close to AMRI hospital is easy to get to. Although my room faced the busy street outside, it wasnt too noisy in the room. The rooms though decent had poor appliances. The refrigerator in my room wouldnt function and when I called them someone tightened the screws on the wall socket to make it work. Scary if you have small children with you.
The restaurant in the hotel serves amazing food at a fraction of the cost of a similar meal in Mumbai, Delhi or Bangalore. It can get crowded on weekends, but on week days we had the restaurant to ourselves. We ate at a few other restaurants in the area (including Mainland China), but none compared to this one where you could a good Bengali meal with beer for less than 10 USD.

Stayed for four days on a business visit to Kolkata. The room had a very stuffy
smell which stuck to my clothes for a while and it's a good thing I didn't require
the air-con at this time of year. I did not want to try it - there was a half-centimetre
gap between the air-con unit and the hole which was made in order to fit it into
the wall with the result that I could see through the gap to the outside. In general
the room and its amenities seemed rather worn.

On the positive side the staff were very friendly and helpful, and the restaurant in
the hotel served food which was excellent!

If you want a place to sleep that is decent, clean, has a nice restaurant that is not too pricey, room service and dependable laundry this is a good place to be. The bathroom has all the toileteries and clean towels. Despite being on a biggish road the rooms are very quiet. I did not get a chance to visit the bar/ restaurant since I mostly ordered room service. Sojourn does not boast great reception area, or expansive vistas from rooms but has a reasonable breakfast (included) toast, omlette, some fruit, tea/coffee, one or the other south indian option, and one local option. It is a sufficient meal not exotic. The staff is friendly and if you ask, you can get anything. One thing is that the bottled water in the room is purified Aqua Guard water, so if you are sensitive or are visiting from abroad, order bottled water from room service. The difference between a deluxe and superdeluxe room is not so much space, former does not have a mini bar/fridge.

In Kolkata, this hotel is less connected to auto rickshaws/public transport etc, however, due to the AMRI hospital nearby there is a profusion of cabs even at odd times. That is a great plus and in terms of getting to the hotel, most taxis will come if you may them 10-20 Rs extra. Considering, you will save considerably on room tariff compared to hotels around that area (about 4000Rs+tax versus 7000 Rs+tax), this is a good option. For people who visit Kolkata for the first time-
1. The station Bidhan Nagar Road is about 60 Rs and 15 mins away.
2. Two malls- Mani Square and City Centre I are nearby though not walkable.
3. Within 5-10mins of a short walk there is a Subway and if you walk further for 5 more minutes, there is 6 Ballygunge Place and within a block a Cafe Coffee day, a small store for water and knick knacks.
4. The hotel has a car rental service- bit steep but the cars are nice and new-1300 Rs for 10 hours, 100km and airport drop is about 600. The latter is a bit too much-you can hail a cab from outside easily.

The only thing I would like Sojourn to do is to offer non-smoking rooms, and not rooms cleaned after a smoker leaves. It was a bit of a bother, smoking neighbours was a bit hard to handle at 6 am. This problem I also had in Peerless Inn. However, value for money, service, location, I would certainly stay here again.
