The Room:
You will enjoy your stay immensely if you appreciate a challenging creative design built in the tiny house concept. It is completely different from a traditional boxed in hotel room with no windows and only gadgets to compensate. You have a treetop level view of the Largest park of Kolkata.

There are two levels of the room with the Lower level having a writing table,storage space and the washroom & the upper level has the bed and the Sundeck and has windows with a unique 270 degree view . Enjoy faboulous views of the monsoon .
The decor of the room is a mixture of traditional handwoven materials from rural artisans and an open skies design with plenty of natural light and sun. There is a private sundeck f& also a mini library. There is lots of space in the adjacent terrace which is frequented by various birds and overlooks the largest park of Calcutta . Walk out of your room onto a green terrace & an unhindered expanse of greenery !

Stairs : We are on the 5th Floor and we do not have an elevator in the building like all buildings of the period . However a walk up the stairs will do a lot of good for your heart , other than the gorgeous views you can enjoy : )
Luggage:
Help can be provided for carrying up luggage for arrivals between 10 am to 6 pm . Or else, Luggage can be stored in a locker room downstairs for the night & carried upstairs the following day with outside help around 10 am .

All this 5 minutes from a Metro , close to Heritage spots, & 30 mins from the Airport & Railway Stations.

Location: Please look up Shyambazar on Wikipedia. The most attractive part of this listing is its unique location. This is the 'Real Kolkata' as many of our guests described it. Walk the alleyways all around us or take a walk to the Ganges for a Ferry ride or just enjoy the aritsan's village of Kumartuli- you can do it like a local from here.
Three simple tips to travellers to find out if the listing is in Kolkata or its suburbs .
1)The tram Car 2) The hand pulled rickshaw & 3) Chai stalls in every street corner.
All three are available around our house & locality.

Here are some other excerpts from what our guests have to say:
"Shyambazar, the neighborhood,is old school, authentic Kolkata with a ton of restaurants and stores.And the view from the rooftop terrace, how peaceful it is up there..take Soham up on his Magic Hour Tour and you'll be eternally grateful you did (TAKE HIS MAGIC HOUR TOUR IF THERE'S ONE THING YOU DO IN KOLKATA!)..Magical place and people. Two nights was not enough."- Antony, US


"..We cooked together and went together to practice yoga..The room and the neighborhood is perfect.. The best Homestay in Kolkata!" -Stephanie, Germany

"....Indrani's cooking is so delicious, strongly reccomend a succulent authentic Bengali meal or more from her kitchen. Soham, Tathagata's son, was also very helpful and welcoming. I took two of the tours that he offers to experience Kolkata, he will take you to places you could never reach on your own. Also strongly reccomended. They make you feel like part of the family and yet, respect your privacy. All in all an excellent experience. " -Juan Pablo , Mexicoo
