★ 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. Look forward to hosting you :)
Jayants' place was lovely. It was just as described. The room was very comfortable and a great location. Jayant was very responsive to helping us, and checked in with us daily to see if we needed anything. I recommend this place and will stay there again when I return to Kolkata.
Brilliant location and all as described. Would thoroughly recommend
Jayant is an excellent host A+ Every was as described on his site. Our flight was over one hour late therefore arrived near midnight. A prepaid taxi Rs350 took us to the apartment with Jayant's help over the phone. He also arranged for a private taxi to show us some of the places in the city. We were please with our day! The only drawback was the driver lack of the English language therefore no conversation or explanations. Jayant always made sure that our needs were consistently met. We felt secure in his environment. Again thanks for every thing Jayant, you made our stay in Kolkata a success!

Jayants place is a wonderful stay in Kolkata. Its clean, spacious, cool with the AC, and very central to the heart of Kolkata. Jayant is a very helpful and gracious host, able to help you with all manner of things.
Would recommend this place to anyone.
My girlfriend and I spent almost a week in Kolkata and Jayants place was by far the best we could find. The room is clean, the internet and the shower works, it is pretty quiet for Kolkata and the location is great - only five minutes walk to lovely shakespear road. Jayant is the most helpful and friendly host you could hope for - ask for his restaurant recommendations! We wanted to extend our stay at his place, but unfortunately the room was already booked. We looked at many places afterwards and still ended up with a far worse deal. Highly recommended!
I stayed here for three weeks and enjoyed every minute. The best part of the experience is undoubtedly Jayant, along with his wife Vidushi. They were both extraordinarily helpful in making sure that my stay was as pleasant and smooth as possible: always checking to see if I needed any supplies, room cleaning, laundry services, snacks and pantry items, and more. Not once did a phone call or sms go unanswered. Jayant was even kind enough to book my train ticket from Kolkata at a moment's notice.
The room itself (number 2) is very spacious, clean and well-lit, with a great view of the city from the balcony. There is ample closet space, a bathroom with instant hot water, and a comfortable bed. The a/c works perfectly, and while it was not necessary at the beginning of March (two powerful ceiling fans cooled the room down enough), for summer stays it's a must. The wi-fi is reliable and fast. Because of their size, these rooms are perfect for everyone - couples, families and single travellers.
Finally, the location is ideal for exploring Kolkata as a tourist, or for work or business. Despite being in a relatively busy part of the city, the rooms are located on the 7th floor and provide a quiet retreat. Taxis are available round-the-clock right in front of the main gate of the building, and the Metro is only a few minutes' walk away. There are also great restaurants and many tourist attractions (Victoria Memorial, South Park St. Cemetery, Netaji Bhavan) nearby.
The strongest recommendation I can offer for Jayant's place is that I will be staying here again when I return to Kolkata in a few weeks. Thank you!
Jayant and his wife are a very sweet couple and they made our stay very pleasant. They were very attentive but also ensured you had your own time to yourself and privacy. The apartment is very spacious and is within walking distance of key landmarks such as the Victoria Monument. Was brilliant fun using the giant telescope on the roof and viewing the moon and Jupiter at close range :) Thanks Jayant! Highly recommended!
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!
Jayant was a gracious host and his place was a comfortable spacious place to stay in the midst of delightfully chaotic Kolkata. We reached the place at 11 pm and upon knowing our arrival (despite the late night) Jayant came down to greet us and answer all our queries as to what we could do for food, our possible travel plans for the next day etc. Only the wifi connection was a little temperamental. Otherwise a great stay!
Jayant is a very reliable and honest host. Everything he said about the apartment was true. I arrived late at might and he gave me very good directions, with key card code for entry and his mob if i had any problems. He checkd nxt morning and gave me some excellent tips and info about kolcata. Also, Jayant gives you your space with no hassle. Kolcata is very difficult city to find good cheap and clean accom but this apartment ticks those boxes.
This is the final rate, including any fees from the host and Airbnb.
