it was our first night at kolkata and thanked Lonely Planet for 100 times.
We reached to the hotel at 11 pm. we booked the hotel a week back and it was a confirm booking, we didn't check any other hotel in that area so straight went to the hotel. At 11 pm they said they don't have any booking and only one ac room is available. the guy was 'wanna be' type and was speaking hindi (no english) as we were from Bangladesh. i went to check ac and non ac rooms and found those extremely dirty, moist, smelly and too high price. when i came and tried to bargain he said, "its gone brother, you are late".
Luckily we had a LP in our bag and started searching hotel at 11.30 pm
ruined our first night at kolkata
on Sep 27, 2012
we took a reservation through a known person who stayed there 1week back. but when we arrived at the hotel they denied any reservation and claim much higher tariff than we heard before. it was more than 10pm and we were too tired to bargain. the person at reception was talking in Hindi in a bad manner.we wanted 2 a/c room for 4 people. they have one a/c room left. that Hindi speaking man was forcing us to take 1 a/c and 1 non a/c room and then stay all of us at 1 a/c room ! we left that hotel at middle of the night to find a decent room for shelter. luckily we had lonely planet on our hand so that it was not that hard. but it left a bad scar in our memory.
Good value and good location

Hotel Aafreen tower offers a great value and location for the budget travellers. The hotel is near Park street and not so far from the Victoria Memorial. The room was OK, but very spacious.
The room was not as clean as we would have wanted, but that was not an issue for us considering the room rate we paid.
However, one of the reception staff was so rude we had several heated discussions with him. His female colleague apologised repeatedly, but it didn't ruin our stay here.
If you're going budget and are in need of a good location, this is the place.
OK; as a really good budget hotel

I stayed here january 2010 and i found to be pretty decent and clean hotel. The room was spacious and the rest room was pretty big which is unusual for a hotel of this value. The most attractive part is not the hotel however but the locality surrounded as it is very close to new market, park street, chowrongi, Victoria Memorial and other happenings around Kolkata. If one wants to save money and doesn't care much about luxury in night staying then it is a great choice.
