Gracious host, classic building. We have stayed there three times, what does that say
A really great place to stay in Kolkata, sizable and right in the heart of the city. Amrit was also great, very understanding in a moment of confusion and eager to answer any and all questions about his city.
My host Amrit didn't do a great job describing the place because it was SO much cooler and more interesting than he lets on! I LOVED staying here and will keep going back whenever in Kolkata, which I hope is soon because I loved it too. He lives steps away from a higher-end shopping area and getting to central points in the city is quick and easy. He arranged for me to have a car/driver for about $30USD for the whole day (12 hrs). He was most welcoming and, if you're nice enough, he may let you see the rest of the glorious mansion this room is in. You'd be nutso crazy not to stay here. Already missing it.
RedBrick is a wonderful place in the heart of old Calcutta, everything within walking distance. The apartment is huge, clean, old world charm with all the amenities of modern day. Amritendu was away travelling, but made sure we got the keys and his caretaker checked on us everyday of our stay.
Love this place, would definitely stay here again if I visit Calcutta.
What an amazing house!
Huge, clean, convenient and a small kitchen. A three course meal would be hard but breakfast is definitely possible to be made by yourself.
We had a great stay. Unfortunately the room was booked for our next night but we could stay in an even bigger room, on the ground floor of the building!
However the friendly laundry service turned out quite expensive. A small stain on a otherwise great and remarkable stay.
This house is located right in the heart of the city. It's a heritage building and is probably 100+ years old. Amrit is an excellent host and he even took extra effort to drive us to another one of his locations and arrange for a home cooked Bengali dinner. The house itself consists of one huge room with an attached kitchen and bathroom. All the fixture in this house are really old and it gives you a vintage experience. Next time we visit Calcutta, we will definitely stay here again!!
While the studio apartment is right in the central of Kolkata in a very convenient location but it is very quite and peaceful as soon as you step into the premises. The apartment is a massive room with a large and comfortable bed. The kitchen is well stocked and the bathroom has all the required facilities. All in all a very pleasant stay.
