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.

Sad to Leave Hotel Saad
We did enjoy the one day, two nights, at Hotel Saad and did not want to tell the guys we wanted to leave. They had been so hospitable and helpful. But getting around on crazy public transport from there was very slow due to congestion. It was too much. Hotel Saad, near Park Circus, ...
... train. We went back to the bottom level and he walked straight into the station manager's office like they were best mates. He disappeared for 10 mins. He came out and said the station manager apologises and that if we had been there before 5pm they could have sorted something. From what we've managed to deduce each train has a special allowance for foreigners that should not quite guarantee a seat but certainly dramatically improve your chances. As we had been in Kolkata for 2 ...
... s states. If you ever have time to spend a week at this museum you could also visit the fossil and mineral rooms... On day three we registered as volunteers with the Mother Teresa Mission and began the following morning at Nirmal Hriday, a home for the destitute and dying. We helped with laundry, feeding, cleaning and general care of the patients (or inmates as they are called by the sisters). Many of them were actually much healthier than we expected but ...
