Being able to find a clean and affordable transit hotel near any airport is a blessing for air travellers. Those taking flights out of Kolkata International Airport and looking for a good transit hotel do have such a blessing. It is called Rupasi Bangla Resort (VIP Road, Beside Military Camp, Tegharia, Raghunathpur, Kolkata- 700157) situated at a five minute drive from Kolkata Airport and has Deluxe rooms at approximately INR 2000 per night including free airport pickup / drop and breakfast. For free pickup, one needs to call the hotel number after arriving at Kolkata Airport and they send their taxi. Call +91-8584030700, 8584030701 or 8584030702.
The deluxe room I got was decent sized, very clean, had a queen bed, a large dresser mirror, a small LCD TV, a window AC that worked fine, a mini fridge, and a small table & chair too. The free breakfast was poori bhaji and tea served in the room. It was all a great deal but I do have one complaint too. I will write this for the benefit of other people who will stay at this hotel.

Before going to the complaint, let me also mention that the hotel is situated on a highway, so there is nothing much around except for a shopping mall nearby that has a nice KFC restaurant on the ground floor and another restaurant called Mitra Cafe on the 4th floor. To go to this shopping mall, one should turn right after coming out of the hotel. The shopping mall is located at a 5-7 minute walk to the left of the road.

Now my complaint: One of the staff at their front office created a confusion by saying that I had to choose between a free drop and a free breakfast. Later, at the time of check-out there was another person at the front office who said all pickup/drop/breakfast were included. Now I do not know if someone in their staff was trying to be oversmart or the hotel management itself is confused. So please watch out for such bumps, otherwise your short stay at Rupasi Bangla Resort will be all smooth sailing.
