Pick and drop facility was available

5.3/7
Posted 27 Aug, 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.

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 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

5.0/7
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.

Spacious accommodation with good food facility

4.9/7
Posted 16 Jun, 2014

Basically, accommodation is very spacious, secured under police protection and it is in very good location. People of Assam gets their neighbours away from home. Overall food facilities served in canteen are similar to our state Assam. Only thing to be improved with this establishment to change the attitude of the room attendants, who always found in avoiding attitude to the borders. Lastly, old home appliances to be replaced to secure safe staying.

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.

A home away from home

6.4/7
Posted 31 Jan, 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 .
