TravelPod Member ReviewsBroadway Hotel Kolkata (Calcutta)
Hotel Broadway is dingy and in the old part of the city, which is not very clean. Stay at Hotel Broadway only if you are open to such experiences and/ or have significant budget constraints. It is unlikely that you will find such a centrally located hotel for Rs. 900 per night anywhere else in Kolkata. There is no AC and you will find the walls, windows worn out and grimy. The noise levels are quite high- from the traffic on the road, even at night, and you might lose sleep. The staff is very friendly and helpful though.

Got out of the flight, picked up the baggage and with lot of anticipation reached the pre-paid taxi counter. Phoosh! The taxis were on strike that day! But we were assured that 'luxury' taxis would be available from a counter outside gate number 3. It was already 10.30pm. We paid Rs.800 for a 25-30 minute drive and reached Hotel Broadway ( …
... Manebhanjan itself. We met a local guy Shyam Bahadur Tamang there who guideed us about the route and the lodge in Chitrey. Now it's time to bye-bye the plains. We have started our trek at around 3.45PM and the milestone displayed Sandakhphu is 31KM. The road is too much steep to walk and it took almost one and half hours to reach Chitrey. Chitrey is 2KMs from Manebhanjan. By then rain has finally stopped. We found only one lodge "Phunstok" where we met Finju, the owner of ...
... br> The New Market is conveniently nearby. We got another a dose of 'in your face' Kolkata. Love the chaotic haggling, the tireless porters, the tea wallahs. Because of the holiday period, it was especially crowded. We loaded up on papaya, sweet mandarin oranges and bananas.

Near the Dr Rajendrapasad Ghat we boarded our boat. Had to laugh later when some older group of tourists flew by on a motorized boat, all wearing life jackets. We would eventually drift down to the main cremation ghat where several cremations were taking place. Didn't need a ******** on a boat on our return past the cremation ghat to show us souvenirs nobody wanted.
The overall impact was ...
