      Comfortable rooms for fair price in tje city. Good location at walking distance from many sightseeings. Moreover in a quiet street which is not the case everywhere in the touristic area of Kolkata. Nice shower with hot water.

      Very friendly staff, old-fashioned but great facility”
      This guesthouse was my first stop in India. I was greeted by courteous staff (especially the elevator man). I felt very safe because they not only had gates, security guard, in every floor there was at least one boy sleeping outside of our rooms to respond to our requests and needs. Because of my travel schedule I will return to the hotel after 20 day travel and fly out of India from Kolkata, so I made a request to the manager of keeping one bag here of things I absolutely didn’t need. To my surprise, he agreed and didn’t charge me anything. When I came back, I was again greeted by their hospitality and kindness feeling like I just came back home! The location of the guesthouse is great too, close enough to walk everywhere but far enough to avoid the horns and noise in the main road. I would definitely come back and hope this guesthouse can stay open for long ( well, it looked like a bit run-down by appearance, but plz don’t be deceived by that and miss its great atmosphere inside). They have a lobby on the third floor that is comfy and spacious.

      Only benefit was it’s in good location, other the money you spend is not worth it. The hotel is super small and untidy with rude staffs. They don’t even allow guests . Facilities which should be there at this rate were not satisfactory

      Scam on room rate and disgusting environment”
      website showing standard rooms at750 rupeesand ac rooms for double that. shown a standard room. told the man at reception that we would book it online. He said no standard rooms free. My phone wifi would not work and asked if i could use the hotel one. I was told very abruptly that i could only use wifi once i had booked in. The man disappeared off with his tablet. By the time i had managed to get a connection the single rooms had conveniently “sold out”, so i was forced to book an ac room. Upon check in i was taken back to THE SAME STANDARD ROOM. room was basic, bed made racket every time you moved. room was next to a toilet that was open to whole floor of guests. It appears some cheaper rooms did not have toilets so guests used this. Our bed backed onto this toilet. all through the night we could hear people with disgusting bowel movemnets, flushing of toilet, banging of doors, loud voices and people making absolutely disgusting hawking, coughing and spitting noise in this toilet.

      Price a little high for the facilities we received”
      Too much for saying they didn’t clean the room once in the 3 days we were there or provide fresh towels or amenities after the initial check in. The room itself was of a good standard and had AC (very weak and we found the fan actually cooled the room down better.) Overall we were fairly pleased and would stay again if the price was better. Very near to the main areas for sightseeing. Oh and the guy that operates the old style lift makes the guesthouse!

      The location is great! It is one block off park street, plenty of food options within short walk. Also it is also a walk or tuktuk ride to attractions like Victoria Palace, Motherhouse or the Museum. The rooms are clean and the staff is kind and helpful. The only conplaint I have is the air and noise pollution but this is to be expereinced everywhere in the city.

      If you're the kind of traveller who spends a lot of time in your hotel this isn't for you. If you're the kind of traveller who just wants a basic room to sleep in, a shower (they have hot water but it was so hot when we visited we opted for a refreshing cold one!), and a comfortable lounge to relax in with a book all within good walking distance to all your sightseeing destinations then Sunflower is perfect. The rooms are comfortable, the lounge is superb, and the staff are warm, friendly and so so helpful. I would definitely come back to Sunflower.

      better stay here than in sudder street.”
      rude staff. clean room, safe location.
      rude reception staff ! the reception makes unnecessary talks. probably the rudest boy i met , of all the travels i had. but i also bumped unto the senior guesthouse owner and he was nice.. he should brief up his staff to do the same. internet not included in room. you have to pay 30 rupees for two hours. but on a lighter note, this guest house is located in royd street, which is less crowdy than in sudder and elsewhere. sunflower guesthouse is fairly clean and well maintained, and the rooms were big and nicely set up , with indian lamps and decors for a cozy indian feel. kolkatta city accommodations are a bit pricey , and i dont understand why. there is only one dorm i found near sudder street ( pushnak ) but is was downright dirty and smelly. thats why i opt to get a room instead , it was just an overnight stay anyway. a lot of intl restaurants are with a few minutes, walk , such as pizza hut and mcdonalds, and good local indian restos as well. try to look for he kusum rolls along park street . around 5 minutes walk from this guesthouse. its the best i had .

      Covenient but very basic”
      Given that this was a relatively cheap option, my expectations were measured. The room was big enough with tall ceilings. Although everything about it was tired it was clean enough. What surprised me though was that in the time I stayed no one came in to clean. The lift man was a daily delight! Depending on your outlook, you may have to gird your loins somewhat as far as standards are concerned, but it was okay for me and the location is spot-on.
