The Hotel is very centrally located in proximity to the market and business. It is also very reasonably priced. However it needs few improvements to qualify as a good business hotel.
Rooms were fair. Initially the linen in the room was not very clean, however they immediately changed it when I objected.
Food in their restaurant was excellent and the restaurant staff attended to us very professionally.

We were total of 4 freinds and was looking for a cheap hotel in kolkata. The advantage of this hotel was that its very close to the railway station. Thats it. The disadvantages are umpteen. No hygiene was maintained. Bed sheets and blankets were torn. Rooms were shady and it was not at all worth the money we paid. I guess the tariff is only considering that its close to the Howrah Railway Station.

I have been visiting Kolkata for 5 days and staying in Hotel Himalay for 5 days. First unpleasant surprise was the rule which is mentioned, one can not stay with friend unless married. One has to wait quite long during check-in although there are 3 members of staff. Every morning, at 8.30, they asked to leave room for cleaning. Although actual cleaning never has taken place and room was in the same state as I was leaving it. In the middle I was asked to pay some money in advance. It was done over the phone, at 8 AM, although I was passing reception twice a day, to leave key and then pick it up. All in all, it left very unpleasant impression. I regret that I have not changed hotel.
