“Clean and comfortable”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 August 2012

At 1000 rupees for a fan room, it's quite a bit more expensive than most of the Sudder Street options, but worth the extra money if you can afford it. We stayed at Modern Lodge prior to moving here, and got attacked by bed bugs, had no running water and the room was filthy (and I have very low hygeine standards). By comparison, Sunflower was luxury - the staff were polite, the rooms were spotless (if a little bland) and the location is awesome. The rooftop garden is also a nice little oasis away from the madness on the streets. Recommended.

We stayed in Sunflower Guesthouse for 3 nights and overall it was a really pleasant stay. The location is really central (close to both Sudder St. and Park St.) and compared to other guesthouses in the area, the price was very reasonable. The rooms were basic but were large and very clean. The bathroom was also really clean. One piece of advice is to make sure and have a mosquito net with you as we were bitten a lot.

The staff in the Guesthouse were really friendly and really accommodating. We had originally booked for 4 nights and there was no problem when we wanted to leave a night early. There is always a staff member on duty monitoring the rooms so it feels very secure. These staff members are also very helpful.

Overall, I would recommend this guesthouse and would stay there again. Don't expect it to be a luxury guesthouse but it does the trick.

I enjoyed my time in Sunflower. It is in a great location, 15 min walk to Motherhouse, just beside Park Street. It's close to Sudder street but is in a quieter area which makes it more peaceful. The accomodation is clean and comfortable and the staff are easy going and let you get on with your business.

Would recommend.

Very basic accommodation in what could be a beautiful art deco building but is left to disrepair. Rooms are spacious and well priced and considering there aren't many options in Calcutta for a backpacker budget this is a good choice. But don't expect anything fancy, it does the job but isn't inspiring in any way. There is a lift for the higher floors. Bathrooms also have hot water which is a blessing in India.

Attracted by the 'Our pick' tag on the Lonely Planet guide, I decided to spend my only night in Kolkota in this guest house. The location is good: not too far from Victoria Memorial (15 min walking) and in a district peppered with bars (Barista Lavazza, Cofee Day, Cha at the Oxford Bookstore), fast food (MacD), well known restaurants (Mocambo, Peter Cat, Moulin Rouge etc...), shops (Oxford Bookshop and Music World). Everything right next the corner.

The guest house is in a old, cannot-miss-me pink, four floor building (elevator available, with the same old fashion taste) that also host private apartments. I had an ok, no-frills room with TV, A/C (most welcome in this season) and a minuscule bathroom with shower (24/h hot water). No fridge in the room and no cupboard. I did not bother because it was only for one night, for longer stay I guess other rooms may be better furnished. Top-roof terrace can give a nice spot on Kolkota and is for sure enjoyable in the right season. Room cost (breakfast included) is very convenient (almost 1400 INR=21Euro/25USD).

If you are looking for a fancy hotel, maybe this is not the right choice; while budget travelers will appreciate this place. To me, very good value for money.
