Continental Guesthouse

Guesthouse in Kolkata (Calcutta)

Aesthetically speaking, the rooms here are much nicer than most other cheapies in the area, but low ceilings mean they tend to overheat. Avoid the cheaper non-AC rooms, as there’s only one shared toilet for over a dozen rooms. It's opposite the Mirza Ghalib St fire station – entry is via a passage between a booze shops and a confectionery.
