Quirky budget hotel
on Apr 28, 2019
Much enjoyed my 7-day stay here. Quirky place with old lift, beautiful roof top terrace, friendly staff, clean rooms and in-room wifi. It's also about ten mins walk from Park Street Metro which is very handy for getting around Kolkata. Five mins walk from good local restaurants.
It's perfect if you're balancing budget with quality.

One of my favorite hotels in India to date (3 trips and a year of traveling in India). It's certainly cheap, old, and no frills, but the rooms are clean, the elevator up to the hotel is always fun (great view through the floors), and both the building itself and the rooftop are fantastic. They held our bags after checkout until our night train without issue, too. The location is also fantastic, as it's right around the corner from the action, but is on a quiet side street. I'll definitely stay here next time I'm in Kolkata.

Do not hesitate to book this hotel if you simply need a clean, secure, centrally-located room at a budget price. A big thank you to the friendly and welcoming staff for a very pleasant place to stay in a chaotic city!

One street, Royd,
Behind Park Street's flaking makeup,
Behind a maze of working trucks,
Behind it all,
Up a creaky old open lift,
Beautifully maintained and worked
By a creaky old man,
Through a silo of quiet apartments,
The Sunflower Guest House,
A Masterclass in Minimalism,
No frills, bells or whistles here,
Clean as a whistle, though,
Spotless cracked floors, fresh sheets, enabled
By the lack of a smelly kitchen rendered Redundant really, by a plethora
Of restaurants and cafes nearby,
The laconic service supine on ancient benches,
Stupefied by humid Kolkata,
Only to spring up alertly, in minutes,
To fetch you a bottle of water,
Or an early morning chai.
The Sunflower Guest House:
A well priced eyrie, above it all.
