There is no place like Homely Raj, that we can readily vouch for, and not just in Kolkata. The menu, just vegetarian ‘south Indian’ and ‘pizzas’, not a chapati or naan or tandoori in sight is unbelievable – and unbelievably good. Indeed, more people go there just to eat idli-dosa-vada-upma-pongal than stay there. However, stay you should if you need to be in the bustle of busiest South Cal (south Kolkata). Rooms are clean, modern in a corporate-cubicle manner, with 12-hours room service only and up some steep, narrow stairs. Criminally early check-out but the price and location (near Jatin Das Park metro station) beat all in this budget. Tariff: Rs 2,000 for doubles. Contact: 033-24192156,
