The guest house is located in a quite sector of salt Lake. The rooms and bathrooms were clean. Blankets need improvement. The The towel supplied was smelly, I had expected better standards. Food is available from inhouse kitchen. No tea kit is supplied in the room, But tea is available from the kitchen. The staff is very helpful and cooperative. Overall a good stay.

My sister and I stayed here for a month as we visited friends and family in Kolkata. We thoroughly enjoyed our visit. The place is clean, the staff--Bishu, Pratap, Krishna, and Subir--go out of their way to be helpful. The owners, Amitava and Subhra, look out for their guests and ensure that they feel at home, always making sure that people are fed, happy, and healthy. It really was a home away from home. When we returned there after a busy day in the city, we felt nurtured, supported, and welcomed.
I would highly recommend it. The location is great too. Walking distance to City Centre Mall, CA Market, and several good restaurants. The Wifi is free and quite strong. The breakfast (included in the price) is very good. And the lunch and dinner available if one orders in advance is good, simple, home cooked Bengali food, a welcome change from spicy restaurant fare.

In the city to attend a wedding, the location of Monorama Guest House was the deciding factor for us as our local hosts were just 2 mins walking distance away in DA block itself. In addition the positive reviews on Tripadvisor helped us feel confident of the place.
There was an initial hitch when my husband called them to reconfirm on the morning of our arrival and was shocked to learn that our booking was not available. To be fair to them, no advance was paid as mutually agreed. However, after keeping us on tenterhooks for the duration of a few hours they sorted out the issue in our favour and all went well.
We stayed for 2 nights in the last week of November and had a pleasant and peaceful stay. The house is situated in a quiet residential area, with a cosy feel to it. The large drawing and dining space on the ground floor is good for getting acquainted with other guests or meeting friends. It has a small, well tended garden and a pet dog called Lucky. I never ventured to the upper floors, so my review is confined to the ground floor areas only.
Our room on the ground floor was very comfortable with it's mirror, study table, wardrobe and other knick knacks, though we never tried the tv. The toilet was clean. The breakfast was simple and fresh, though repetitive.The staff was attentive and helpful.
The Guest House is an ideal choice for it's home like atmosphere, peaceful surrounds and easy reach to all areas of Kolkata.

To attend the wedding of a friend’s son, we had dashed to Kolkata for three days. While searching the accommodation options in proximity, I discovered Monorama Guest-House with its generally good reviews in the Trip Advisor. Monorama, located in a quiet part of Salt Lake, is away from the din and bustle of a busy city. But easy accessibility to the nearby EM By-pass ensures its seamless connection to the big city.
With a small patch of garden, many potted plants and a well appointed lobby-cum-drawing room-cum dining facility with sprinkling of many curios, Monorama looked more like a family home. We were allotted a double bed-room with adequate size at the ground floor. The room had a split AC, which we did not use in November and a flat panel TV, which refused to be of any use for faulty cable connection! The bed-sheets and towels were passable and the toilet was moderately clean.
We only had breakfast limited to bread-butter-jam-eggs-bananas on both the days and thus cannot comment on food quality of Monorama. The support staffs were generally polite and helpful.
On the overall, we were quite happy for its stone throwing distance from my friend’s house ensuring our prolonged enjoyment in the event, which prompted our visit to the city.
