Horrible place - avoid if you can
on Oct 29, 2019
I am surprised at the rating of 3 star and "very good" given for this hotel by some traveller. I do travel extensively in India and abroad and it is one of the worst places I stayed.
The hotel is in a very old building, probably at least 50 years old.
Reception area is just big enough for 2 people to stand.
We got room on the 3 floor and we had to climb very steep stairs to get to our room as there is no elevator. The room and bathroom was clean - the only positive feature of the place. Room opened onto a balcony where they dumped some construction material - not a pleasant sight.
There is no working phone in our room to call the reception/room service.
When we checked in the afternoon, the window a/c in the room was working.
However when we returned at 11pm in the night, the AC conked out.
We were told that they will shift us to another room in the morning, so we had to spent uncomfortable night without AC.
Next morning they showed us a room which was probably locked up for several months. There was pigeon droppings all over the place which we obviously declined.
Finally in the afternoon they gave us a room which had AC working and no pigeons -
it only had mould growing on one of the walls. Also came across a german cockroach in the 3rd floor. My guess is you will find lot more in the restaurant on the ground floor.
I would rate the hotel 1 star or 1.5 star at the best.
Nice little place

The hotel is located near metro station. The rooms are decent and spacious. Plenty of food options nearby. Parking could be a problem. The hotel is near Kalighat temple. Staff is helpful. Enjoyed a pleasant stay.
Raj, still retains it's old charm.

From Idly to Dosa, the Idly melts in your mouth, piping hot cake that ideally does not need any accompaniment. Dosa is golden crisp as ever. Perfect Rice Meals with Rasam and not to be missed the dried curd chillies and special sambhar that accompanies. Dancing Filter Coffee not to be missed.
Worst place to stay
on Nov 24, 2018
Unfortunately I happened to stay in this hotel with my family. Not to forget the company of bed bugs, cockroaches and insects I don't know the names of in the room, bathroom, bed and cupboards. The basic requirement of clean drinking water was very risky to use because the tap and the basin was full of insects and the jar and glasses in the room had interesting alcoholic smell and red stains of tobacco. To top this experience was the pathetic, disappointing and highly discourteous behavior of oyo representatives. During my stay I repeatedly called the hotel guys and oyo people to talk to the hotel owner to look into the issue, I hope they are still discussing it. Alas, our dreadful stay came to an end but the cherry on the cake was no invoice/receipt and extra charges for bottled water. We completed our stay 2 weeks back and as promised by the oyo representative still waiting for a resolution that was to be provided as the TAT for an issue is 24 hours. Hoping that "oyo timezone 24 hours" will get over and I will hear from them.
South Indian Food

one of the best places to have south indian food. The staff are very friendly, the quality is really good. Breakfast, lunch , dinner all available. Open from morning to late evening, this place is amazing.
