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 up early and were ready by 8am to have the first meal of a new day. On asking for a South Indian breakfast place, Umeshji (the hotel guy who had suggested the previous night's restaurant) gave us two options, both were at walking distance. We chose Madras Restaurant (which has been there since 1939). We thoroughly enjoyed the hot Upma and idlis …
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 ( …
... our goodbyes we tried to go for a 6:00am breakfast but no luck. I waved to her from a three story window and she excitedly waved and yelled back "goodbye friend!" She was heading off in a taxi to meet my Calgary friends to do work at the mission. I was headed to a 5 star hotel. I'm sure Karma will get me for that choice and possibly had something to do with a rough journey home. Goodbye you crazy Kiwi. I hopped in my dented, epoxied jalopy of a ...
... as any I have seen before. I was forced off the road twice but the real close one was an almost head on with a white 4x4. It might be that I'm getting older or indeed a bit more sensible but I made a promise that I would take care on this 6 month trip. The route I was taking was a two way affair and whatever I experienced on the way up would no doubt have to be repeated on the return leg. With discretion being the better part ...
... to make a living, or eat, but it was a bit gruesome. Conspicuously missing were pigs, which I assume is due to the area being Muslim. They definitely were not Hindu with the amount of beef for sale.
We stopped back at the hotel, took our 6(!) books we'd been lugging around for at least two months, & traded them in, along with $5, for 3 new (for us) ones. I don't care what kind of deal we made, if we got ripped off, because our backpacks are light as a feather ...
