Travelling to the City of Joy, but don’t have a lot of cash to splash? Fear not, Kolkata is home to a selection of budget hotels where you can have a comfortable, safe stay, without breaking the bank. From good locations to cosy rooms, these urban boltholes have it all!

Broadway Hotel

Hotel
Save
Founded in 1937, Broadway Hotel has been a landmark at the very heart of Kolkata’s central business district for eight decades. While the hotel is rich in irresistible old-world charm – think mid-20th-century style furnishings, vintage décor and large, airy rooms – you don’t have to sacrifice any of your standard modern amenities either. With free wi-fi, 24-hour check-in, and a well-stocked bar and restaurant, a satisfactory stay is on the cards. Not all rooms come with air-conditioning or hot water, though, so check with the reception desk prior to booking. Rooms cost from INR980-INR1,795 (£11.50-£21).
