Old fashioned, very much budgeted. At times of our visit, all hotels were booked or charging exorbitant prices, this one hotel, run by a management of Oriyas, not only offered us a room at a reasonable price but also did the booking without any advance, and said his word was enough for the booking to be confirmed and didn't take...

Sure, this isn't a high class hotel. However, for a traveler needing something simple, this is the place to go. It's very clean, basic, comes with satellite tv, a decent private bathroom and a huge rooftop terrace. Oh, and it's housed in a 19th century building with reliable, original lift. As for the location, it's a short walk to most...

Sunflower Guest House is a good Option. Not that cheap but ok still. Water is hot. Hot Water for tea is included. Also a plus. The rooftop has its charme and with the variety of palm plants and green plants on it you can relax very well. No restaurant but Location is well and close to Sudder St. I will...

Stayed for 3 nights as our base for a cultural tour. Very refreshing to find a reasonably priced hotel which is clean, friendly, helpful, full of character and good location. Would help to have clear information about obtaining food and drinks. Also a simple rooftop cafe would be brill! Thanks

My stay at the sunflower guest house was for 3 days with friends. The atmosphere was laid back, the staff helpful and willing to go the extra mile. All the basics were covered and in the no frills rooms. And to add to that free wifi and a rooftop garden to hang out on with plants and fairy lights and...

THE GOOD the location of the hotel could not be better, close to Victoria memorial and many other place of interest including Mother Teresa's tomb, Indian Museum,Peter Cat, Arslan and the market. The attendant was quite helpful in arranging food from outside at 7:00 AM. The terrace has a beautiful garden and for the price i paid that was good....

Its a comparatively cheap hotel close to marquise street. I took a Non AC room, what was not satisfactory. There is barely any room service. The service boys actually slept outside our door! Its housed in a old, interesting looking building, specially the lift is ancient and shaky, but gets the job done. Location is good enough, close to many...

Located a couple of hundred yards from the action on Park Street, the Sunflower puts you within easy walking distance of Calcutta's best restaurants, bars and shopping. It cannot be beaten on location. Rooms are large, with very high ceilings and great AC. The decor is a bit functional - but everything is clean and spotless. Very friendly team. Great...
