Bengal Buddhist Association

Guesthouse in Kolkata (Calcutta)

While it is meant to house visiting Buddhist scholars, the guesthouse opens its doors to all travellers, as long as they maintain house decorum (the gates are locked from 10.30pm to 5am – and you obviously can't hobble in drunk). The simple rooms share basic common bathrooms with geysers, although there are a few en suite rooms with air-con (₹750).
