★ WHAT TO EXPECT
This is not a luxury apartment even though it's in a posh locality and in one of the safest areas in Kolkata. The apartment does not have luxury furnishings but everything is squeaky clean, dust free, and in working order.
You don't have to worry about bugs, stains, etc. I've travelled extensively and know these little things count!
From the 7th floor, you'll get marvellous views of the city, enjoy the cool breeze from the South side, and access the verandah as well.
As for the apartment, it's huge (2800 square feet) and airy. You can relax and unwind in the large common living room area. It has high ceilings and lots of natural light.

My wife and I have always wanted to run a B&B and this is our dream come true! We will try our best to make your stay comfortable and memorable.
The room was exactly as described here and shown in pictures: spacious, clean, and comfortable. Vidushi provided us with all the amenities required: toilet paper, soap, shampoo, glasses etc. the sheets were actually of very good quality that I wasn't expecting!
All the things promised worked really well. The bed was flat and comfortable, the shower had good pressure, the kitchen oven worked well, and I found the apartment to be really quiet even though it's on the Main Street; so you can relax after a long day in Kolkata!
Location was aces. Everything was actually close by and we hired a taxi for the whole day to tour in peace. Vidushi was kind enough to explain details to the driver.
All said we had a fantastic stay and I hope to stay here again as I visit Kolkata often! :)
*tip: you can get a local sim at the Vodafone store nearby to contact without problems. Just remember to take your govt id!
What a nice relaxing appartment in a busy india city. Thanks to clear directions no problem findig the place even after midnight. The room was spacious, clean and comfortable. The host to good care of us with information and even snaks in the room.
Would stay here again.
This accommodation is perfectly located in a central part of Kolkata with a little bit of walking to get to major centres of the city like Esplanade.
I arrived after midnight, but Jayant made checking in a breeze by providing very clear and concise instructions for me. The staff at the front gate were also very welcoming and friendly throughout the duration of my stay.
This room is one of three inside an apartment that Jayant owns, so you share the lounge and kitchen with other guests if there are any, but you have your own lockable bedroom with ensuite.
The host had provided a few biscuit snacks, plus bottled water and coffee/tea/sugar. In the bathroom there was even talc and Vaseline! Linens and towels were impeccably clean, plus coathangers are provided inside the built-in wardrobe.
Jayant was always reachable by phone and email, and he also helped me get an Indian sim card, which is a process that requires you to have a local address and a person who can verify your stay.
The internet connection was fast and reliable, which is an important thing for me when travelling. I also really appreciated that the water was always hot.
Thanks Jayant and Vidushi for your hospitality.
Jayant's place is a wifi and AC haven in Kolkata. He and his wife are extremely kind and generous and made me feel all too welcome in the city. There's not much to the apartment beyond the bed and a few things in the kitchen, which can make things feel a bit empty and unlived in at times, but it certainly did the trick.
A friend and I spent 6 nights with Jayant at Central in room 3. I will definitely reccommend it to any friends going to Calcutta. The apartment is indeed spacious, comfortable, well equipped - and everything works! It is also well located. But the best part is having Jayant constantly available to help out with any kind of problem. He and his wife Vidushi are very efficient and deal with any problem immediately, and they are very attentive to the needs of their guests. We really appreciated their help, with all our questions about where to shop, buy medecine, order food, taxis, etc. We had neither tablet nor smart phone so did not use the wifi but I had an Indian SIM card which allowed us to communicate.
Thank you Jayant and Vidushi for looking after us so well. If we return to Calcutta we will certainly stay with you again.
Jayant can order you a pizza, make a reservation taxi, finding the right train schedule,he is the internet boss!
his B&B is very well located in Calcutta.
Jayant and Vichushi will donate you the best reception.
it was a pleasure to stay in Calcutta
We had a great stay at this apartment (one of the best in India, comparing to hotels/guesthouses) with Jayant and his girlfriend being excellent hosts, accomodating every need we had (and we had several)! The apartment is located close to the memorial, has metro close by too.
Jayant suggested places to eat which were great and the apartment was comfortable with nice little extra comforts Jayant provided. Definitely recommend and would definitely come back! Thanks Jayant!
