Notice the graffiti on the wall? And the afternoon sun washing the room without heating it up.That's your period 4-poster semi double (queen) bed. And the period wood & mirror almirah where you store your stuff.

À propos de ce logement

My place is ideal for couples & first-time travellers. You will be pleasantly surprised that what you thought was simply a private room and bathroom, is actually a whole flat to yourself. (If you are a group of 3, you can book the single-bed room on my other listing, "Old world charm. Safe and calm." to ensure it!)
If you run out of things to do laze around. The house, which is old, offers lot of character and charm... Stay like a local and explore places using public transport is what we say!

Description

All giving it a truly classical charm!

Échanges avec les voyageurs

My wife & I love meeting travellers from other geographies, understanding their culture and personal interests in order to direct them around, so they get the best experience from their visit. We are helpful humanists.
We try to make your stay in Kolkata (Calcutta) more enjoyable with suggestions on places to visit, based on your interests. Ask us.

Le quartier

The area around Jatin Das Road towards Triangular Park is perfect for first time travellers to Kolkata, wonderful tree-lined roads lined with charming homes, cafes full of character and with good proximity to all parts of the city.
Once you are back from your day's activity, come home to a house that has a lot of character and charm. If you are the only guest staying at the time you'll have the whole flat to yourself! If the next door room has a guest, be as polite and cordial as you'd expect him or her to be with you.

Transports

The best part about the place is the location... It is walkable to the underground metro train station which allows you to go to most tourist attractions in Kolkata. Plus, it is a real local foodie neighbourhood (you will never run out of breakfast options on your way to the Metro station!) with lots of gourmet eateries all around.
For the outdoorsy nature-lover, going to the Rabindra Sarobar Lakes for walks is a singular experience, positively unforgettable!
Commuting by yellow taxi is easy because they never hesitate to want to come to this location! Buses and the old Calcutta trams, as well as the Metro are all easily available and light on the pocket.

Autres remarques

We do NOT accept Third Party bookings because we like to know who we are hosting.
My wife and I stay in another apartment just 3 floors above, and either of us are available for help 8AM to 10PM.
This is a quiet, unpolluted, middle-class residential area only a block away from the main street, Rashbehari Avenue -- the heart of South Kolkata -- with major bus and tram routes to connect you to all parts of the city. Nearest underground Metro station ONLY 10-min walk away.
For the outdoorsy nature-lover, going to the Rabindra Sarobar Lakes for walks is a singular experience, positively unforgettable!

Amit and his wife are nice,friendly and trying hard to be helpful.Since the day one I booked their place,he started to to show his caring. When ,on the first day,I was out and got lost ,Mr.Amit was kind enough to come and pick me up,for that I felt very thankful.The place is clean,and both living and bed room were fully taken up by antique is anyhow an anciant Benguli villa.

It's my second time to India. To me it's a country full of surprise, so is the experience in Amit's place. At first I was just looking for a guesthouse which is near some park so I can keep my running routine. Amit's apartment is just 3 minutes jogging to Rabindra Sarobar Lake. And it turned out this beautiful park is not only a perfect place for running but also an essential place to escape from the city’s frazzling sounds and smells. The apartment is located in a quiet neighbourhood full of a variety of good restaurants. Room is clean, quiet and you have a private bathroom and even a shared kitchen. That's all I want for a guesthouse. But it is more than that. The room is filled with antique furnitures and decorations, which you can explore like a folk museum and get a nostalgic vibe of the old Calcutta. Moreover, Amit is really out of my expectation. I'm not saying that he is helpful or friendly. He is amazing. He even gave me 200 in case my rupee was not enough to cover my ride to the airport. And to my total surprise, he even called the uber driver when he noticed on his mobile that the car had deviated from the regular course. This means he is genuinely responsible for the guests and take them more than just another passing traveller. Every night, I enjoyed the long talks with Amit, obviously with excellent tea prepared by Mrs. Mrittika. Amit is such a knowledgeable man, almost twice my age (though we look like the same) , but still open-minded and curious about everything. Those conversations are always inspiring, which I'm starting to yearn now. The staying in Amit's house is my most memorable memory during this trip. I highly recommend his place to those who are keen on taking times to experience the old charm of the city and the people.

I had a wonderful stay at Amit's place! Amit and his wife Mrittika were lovely, so kind and accommodating, and I got to have some very interesting conversations with Amit. They were very communicative and often checked in to make sure I had everything I needed. The place itself is well cared for, clean, and peaceful, and has a very homey feel. The one other room in the apartment was empty for the majority of my stay, so I enjoyed the use of the living room to myself as well. The surrounding neighborhood is safe, relatively quiet, and has lots of options for eating as well as several cafés where you can get good coffee and use wifi (the only drawback of my stay here was the lack of wifi in the apartment). It's just far enough from the city center to be a bit less crazy but still easy to get around to all the places of interest and a fairly short walk to the metro. All in all a great place to hang short or longer term, I would definitely stay here again if I return to Kolkata and highly recommend!

The room is a lovely, old, traditional one with a compact bed for two. What it lacks in daylight, it makes up for in charm and quirk. The loo is simple and clean, and Amit tends to his guests well with some refreshments and clean towels. I'd recommend it for its central location, its calm and serenity, and its vintage vibe.

I'm a person who's retired from employment. I like meeting people, making new friendships. I have an open mind and am always curious about other cultures, geographies & individuals. I love Nature (birds, animals, trees), reading fiction, narratives & travelogues, surfing the Internet, movies, music, gourmet food & travel. I'd love to host people who share some of these interests/values too.
