★ 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.

★ LOCATION - IT'S NEAR EVERYTHING

-- Do check the guidebook I've made on Airbnb.

There are numerous restaurants near the apartment. Park Street, which has almost all of the best restaurants in town, is a 10 minute drive / 15 minute walk. Here are some nice restaurants, all within 15 minutes of our apartment:

☺ Enjoy a peaceful time at Minto Park which has a huge pond with a fountain and frequented by morning walkers. It's a 2 minute walk. 3 pharmacies are within a 5 minute walking distance. Since you're in the heart of Kolkata, almost all the popular attractions are within 5 kilometres.

  • 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.

    April 2014
  • 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.

    March 2014
  • 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!

    February 2014
  • We four thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Central. Jayant is great and so is the apartment—large bedrooms with private baths, shared living room and sun room and dining room and kitchen. My son made good use of the sunroom’s treadmill. We especially enjoyed star-gazing with Jayant and his Dobsonian telescope. We all highly recommend this place. It's very convenient for many Kolkata experiences.

  • We had a great time staying with Jayant in Kolkata. Rooms all very spacious including lounge/dining rooms. We were not into the cooking mode but kitchen had basic requirements. Not so many eating places nearby - though a couple of basic ones - but easy to get taxi to access other areas.
    They were were obliging in allowing us a late check-out because of late flight.
    Jayant happy to assist with info requested and is easily accessible by email - just because I did not have a phone but had an iPod touch. Free WiFi available for use - it worked well.
    Thanks Susan

  • Great place to stay in Kolkata. Jayant was very helpful from the start and provides lots of extras to make your stay comfortable. Room is huge and shared areas well kept and clean, with AC throughout. Definitely recommend. Thanks Jayant.

    October 2013
  • Central B&B is an excellent, reasonably priced place to stay while visiting Kolkata. My husband and I recently stayed one week in the master bedroom, and found Jayant and his wife to be attentive hosts. Since wifi is included, and the host lives one floor above, a brief e-mail invariably brought a quick response to all requests. While all three bedrooms were occupied during our stay, there was plenty of privacy and the guests we met increased our enjoyment of the stay. Location is convenient for sightseeing and price is an outstanding value. CENTRAL IS A GREAT FIND, especially for
    extended stays.

    October 2013
  • We stayed at Jayant's house for three night and was a really pleasure, He was helpful all time and the room is so big and very clean. Excellent choice to discover Kolkata. Thank you!!

    October 2013
  • Excellent place to stay in the heart of the city. It's a 10 minute walk to the metro, interesting places are nearby! Jayant and his wife are very friendly and very helpful. They will explain you how Kolkata works. The rooms are really huge, beds are fine. Everything is very clean. Hot water is no problem.
