"Good hotel to stay at excellent location "

Posted 10 Sep, 2015

Kolkata is the well place. I went to Kolkata for some important meeting with my partners. For two days we stay Assam Hotel. I cannot see all of the hotel because I had not time to know. But I know that the hotel is very big and there is much room to stay the hotel. I used bathroom two times. In that time I saw that bathroom are big and clean. The hotel staff are cooperative with all people and help them. Food served in the hotel is amazing.

"Nice stay experience"

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 5 people in group. We played mostly games and done adventure.

"Best for backpackers at a good location "

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 Russell street which is a stone's 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 Russell Punjabi Dhaba where you can soothe your taste buds to some amazing lassi and butter chicken.

"Memorable stay and helpful staff"

Posted 9 Jun, 2015

This guest house cum hotel is located in Russell street which is one of the busiest streets in Kolkata. Assam house provides cheap dormitory beds to travellers from Assam. The rooms are spacious and clean. Assamese food is served in the guesthouse which is a delight. Also the staff is very helpful. Lots of places to visit around and go for street shopping. I love the street food in this area. It was quite a memorable stay at Assam House. Would love to visit again.

"Food was quite good; room was average"

Posted 6 Oct, 2014

It's okay to stay for us as we got the chance to meet another assamese family too. Rooms were okay, but need to be improved. Food was quite good and inexpensive too. The location is really good. One can easily go to the famous places of Kolkata from here.

"Pick and drop facility was available"

Posted 5 Sep, 2014

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.
