Broadway Hotel Kolkata (Calcutta)
Ganesh Chandra Avenue, Kolkatawebsite: http://business.vsnl.com/broadway/
This has become my regular hotel when I'm in Kolkata. As the website suggests, it's functional and friendly, with good value non-a/c rooms. You can book ahead by email. They don't do airport pickups, but suggest you use the prepaid taxi. Next to Chandni Chowk metro station so convenient for many places. The restaurant is excellent, always packed in the evenings with Indian businessmen having a meal and a few drinks -- if you can't stand the cigarette smoke, use room service. Attached bathroom, hot shower, tv.
