New to the city and looking for a budget-friendly guest house? Avoid those run-of-the-mill hotels and give Novelty Guest House a shot. Conveniently located on the Gariahat-Ruby crossing (3.8km from Ballygunge Junction Railway Station near Acropolis Mall), this place is sure to make you feel at home.
Spic and span rooms, quick customer service and a well-lit dining area -- this guest house might not be as grand or atmospheric as big hotels, but it's pretty charming and ticks all the boxes for a comfortable stay. There aren't too many options when it comes to rooms but you can still get to see stunning views of the city from their road-facing AC deluxe room.
Equipped with basic amenities (WiFi, mini bar, electric kettle, laundry, 24-hour room service), all the 18 rooms are done up with textured walls and boast of a neat decor to say the least. These rooms include, single, double and triple bed options, with a 24-hour check-in and check-out policy. The room tariff starts from INR 2,500 (check different websites to bag the best deal).
You must check out their restro-pub, serving over 200 delicious dishes and a host of mocktails. We recommend their dragon chicken (deep fried wings doused in tangy sauce), Hong Kong noodles and fish fry (the filling is appetizing to the core).
