4.9/7
Posted 14 Aug, 2015

It was nice experience at that place . We enjoyed it well. We stay for two and a half day at that hotel. Nice rooms and many other things are there. But specially the food service is not good. We have to wait more time than generally. We are 5people in group. We played mostly games and done adventure.

Best for backpackers at a good location

5.3/7
Posted 19 Jul, 2015

I stayed in Assam house when i was backpacking in West Bengal. The cost is a backpackers dream. You can get a bed for as low as Rs 50 in the dormitory. Assam House is located in Russel street which is a stones throw from Park Street. 50 rupees at such a prime location with such amenities is like an offer only availed in dreams. Even single rooms are pretty cheap at Rs 800. You might need to be a resident of Assam or have a reference from someone in Assam to avail a room or a bed here. Not very sure about this though as I am from Assam and didn't have any problem on this front. However, as expected it is always booked and prior booking is strictly advised. The staff are very helpful and friendly too. Just opposite to Assam house is the Russel Punjabi Dhaba where you can soothe your taste buds to some amazing lassi and butter chicken.

Puri place is excellent for visit. Location was fine. Inner and outer look of the hotel was below average. Booking and front office was fantastic. Check in and check out facility was not delayed. Pick up and drop facility was available. Behavior of the staff member was friendly. Services were quick. Rooms were not up to the mark. Any scenic view was not available from the room. Food was tasty. Both varieties were available like veg and non-veg. Garden was available in activities. Activities were poor. I traveled there with my family for relaxation in April month 2014. This is a recommendable hotel for travelers.

A home away from home

6.4/7
Posted 5 Feb, 2014

The Assam House is owned and run by the Govt. of Assam for its people to stay at Kolkata. The location is excellent for shopping and roaming around.The rooms are big and spacious and the bathrooms are fitted with geyser. There is a restaurant at 1st floor where the meals are served fresh and in local Assamese style. A home away from home. The only problem is that it is very difficult to get rooms due to heavy rush. And the lift doesn't operate at night i.e. from 10.00 pm onwards.
