Hotel close to Kolkata Airport

by hugobaur Online Now Jul 22, 2008 at 1:04 PM

Hi all. I shall be arriving at Kolkata Airport around midnight and would like to spend the night at a hotel located close to the airport.
Is the MBD Hotel operational? In January 2008 it looked empty and in disrepair.
Do you know the Ashok Hotel?
Can you recommend any decent hotel located close to Kolkata Airport.
Many thanks for your assistance.

    There is one Airport Ashok Hotel near Kolkata airport. Just 1 KM from Netaji Subhash International Airport (Name of Kolkata International airport). If I am not mistaken, the room tariff is around USD 100 per night.
    If you are not very fussy about one night sleep, you can try the dormitory facility available for air travellers at Kolkata airport.

    There is another Hotel close to the Kolkata International airport. I have stayed in this hotel a couple of times. Good enough for spending a night. Dont expect a lot. All the rooms are below Rs 1000
    This is just an ordinary hotel but very close to International airport and they provide Airport Transfers

    Thanks Ashish for the reply.
    Did you mean the retiring rooms that can be rented for a fee are available both in the domestic and the international terminal. I understand the Calcutta airort has the two terminals side by side but they are not connected. So you have to come out of one and get into the other.

    I will be arriving at the international terminal late night, wondering if I have to go to the domestic terminal for the rooms.

    Thanks in advance.

    I stayed at the retiring room on 09 Feb 09, located at level 2 of the International terminal (Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose Internatiinal airport). Now, they have done away with advance booking of these retiring rooms. The rooms are given away on first come first serve basis. One pre-requisite for staying in these retiring rooms is that you should have onward flight booking (either an international or a domestic flight connection). In order to avail this room, you should proceed to Airport Manager's office located between Arrival lounge and departure lounge of International terminal. The Air con rooms costed me Rs 1000/- for one night and it had two single beds. The room was kind of OK for a night.
    For those who are hungry, there is a good restaurant just next to the retiring rooms.

    Guys,
    Thank you very much for the information. I will be arriving at Kolkata domestic airport at 8pm on 9th April and my connecting flight to Guwahati will be at 10.55am on 10th April. I was worried about my overnight stay. By what you people are saying I can get a retiring room in the domestic airport itself! That's good.
