... 20ft or so along the banks of the pool or under the shade of trees. Ben and I felt like we should be strolling through the park arm in arm (Although in India that is pretty normal anyway). Unfortunately in the Building again you were not permitted to take photos, which was a shame as the interior was almost as impressive as the building is on the outside. The museum that they have filled it with on the other hand leaves a little to be desired, with nothing of any ...
... too, but I have also seen its determination to upgrade fast. I read a about how the first world needs to offer the developing world cheap 'green' power to get its energy needs. Its very tricky and I see the shades of grey, but i do see clearly. Oh there is a lot to think about...I feel good and refreshed ready to go home to pursue another day.
We promise to stay in touch with our friends. A beautiful family we hope they will visit us in Australia.

TravelPod Member ReviewsAstoria Hotel Kolkata (Calcutta)
We stayed at the hotel mainly because friends of ours had booked there. We took a double for 1890 + tax and for that we got a large room but very rundown and dirty. It had an old AC, an TV that has bad reception and therefor was unwatchable, a small fridge that was OK (nothing in it though) and plenty of hot water (in the rundown and dirty bathroom).
Breakfast included and it was OK.
Really dirty common areas and corridors.
I wouldn't recommend anyone to stay here unless they drop the price to less then a 1000 rupees and even then, just barely.
