Location

Kolkata, West Bengal, India

Our apartment is located in Shyambazaar. It is very near to the Shyambazar five point crossing. This is in the heart of historical Kolkata, from where the city’s long journey can be traced.

We are a small family residing in an apartment. It is conveniently located near the airport (around 8 KM ) and also centrally placed from the three main railway terminuses of the city (Howrah 3km. approx. Sealdah 2km. approx. and Kolkata Station, approx. ½ km) of the city. Metro or the underground is also very nearby and the Shyambazar station is only 2 minutes walk from the place. The neighbourhood is a popular market area littered with shops, restaurants, cinema, theatre halls & confectionery shops. The Bus, Tram depot, and Taxi stand, circular rail, ferry service on the ganges, service of Ola and Uber are almost at our door stop. Yet the apartment is in a quiet nook, away from the noises and hustle and bustle of the otherwise busy area.

We are a family of four living in this neighbourhood for over 100 years now. We are well known among our neighbours to be kind and hospitable and enjoy a healthy reputation among the locals. We love to travel and host travellers as well exchanging experiences and cultural ideas. The members of the household include me, my husband Prasun, my sister-in-law Shubhra and my son Aneesh. I am a homemaker. I also run cooking and baking classes from my apartment and would be more than happy to share a few tips on Indian / Bengali cooking. My husband is a Chartered accountant by profession and runs his own C.A. firm located in Dalhousie Square (BBD Bag). The youngest member of our family is my son Aneesh. He is a sound engineer by profession and also a musician.

During your stay
Guests are most welcome to seek us out on any necessary matter. We would be available 24X7.

We as a family would like to get to know those who visit us and the beautiful places they come from. Thus if anyone is interested to extend one’s experience of a homestay into more than just renting a room but rather use the opportunity to live with a local family, learn more about the local culture and experience the warmth of our family, they are most welcome.

But if you are a private person then your privacy would surely be respected.
