Kolkata | Sunflower Guest House

Arriving from our grueling 12 hours train ride from Varanasi, me and my travel companion Paula didn’t wish for anything but to get to our accommodation easily. Since we didn’t want to think too much anymore on how to get to our destination the cheapest way, we then headed to the prepaid taxi terminal, paid Rs 120 and hopped into the taxi going to Royd Street where our guest house is.

After traveling the road for half an hour or less, we were able to reach our guesthouse, Sunflower Guest House, without any difficulties of finding it. It instantly became my favorite guesthouse in India because of its easy to find location; centrally located in the central business district of Kolkata.

Sunflower Guest House is nicely situated at 7 Royd Street, near crossing of Park Street and Free School Street, Kolkata. Its location is close to shopping areas, restaurants and tourist spots. For as low as Rs 999, you can already stay in one of their nice and clean rooms.

A thing that also filled us with awe about this guesthouse is it’s situated in Solomon Mansion House, which offers a remarkable experience with a taste of heritage. How can we forget about that old-style elevator which is very uncommon nowadays.

We stayed in Double Bed Semi Deluxe room which is a medium-sized air-conditioned room with two single beds, bathroom and regular furnishing.

Their facilities also includes huge common area, use of gym equipment and roof top garden. They also offer computer rental, WiFi and breakfast for a fee. The vicinity and hallways are also secured with CCTV making our stay even more safe and secure. Staff are also friendly and accommodating. They even accompanied us in getting a taxi going to the airport when we checked out from the guesthouse.

Sunflower Guest House certainly made our last night in India more convenient and secure. Thank you for giving us a convenient arrangement and comfortable and safe stay. The hospitality and humble accommodation made our last stop in India even more remarkable.

  1. The room looks nice. The place looks nice outside too but is it near the pasyalan?
