hi friends,
I am planing to stay in kolkata for attending my visa appointment interview in kolkata. Any friends from kolkata advice me on the hotel accommodation in kolkata in the range of 1000-2000 rs. It will be good if the duration of travel from hotel to consulate is 30 min.

3AC ,in all probability might end up in RAC . And Tatkal for the East coast exp for a Tue dep opens on Monday at 10 am. But I am more worried if you can make it to this train. A 8 am interview which could end up by 10 and then for you to cross the Howrah bridge during morning rush hours to reach the station, touch risky isnt it?
