"Close to Howrah station" The Howrah Hotel Tip by Willettsworld

The Howrah Hotel, Kolkata (Calcutta): 15 reviews and 2 photos


If you're really desperate to stay in a budget place near Howrah station then this place will have to do. I made the mistake of staying here when I arrived as it looked pretty good on the website and I had heard horry stories about places on Sudder St. I arrived here after arriving at about 10am from Bodh Gaya and it didn't feel that bad a place at first but then got worse as my stay in Calcutta went on. I made up my mind to move on to Sudder St after staying the first night but there was a strike on my second day which left me stranded. I moved out to much relief after the second night. The room I had smelt musty, as the hotel is fairly old, and was large with a high ceiling but the beds, although large, was hard as hell and the bathroom was pretty poor. The photo's of the rooms on the website are made up as you can see by my photo's. The room I had cost Rs365 but I can't recommend it for love or money.
