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.
After two weeks of roughing it in Bangladesh, we were looking forward to a comfortable 4-night stay at RedBrick Shakespeare 2 to recuperate and that's exactly what it was -- comfortable. The apartment is spacious, clean, nicely furnished, and well located within walking distance of everything we wanted to see. It has TV, strong WiFi, a very comfortable bed, a fridge, 2 burner stove, kitchen utensils and dishes, and lots of hot water. Amrit, who lives in the same building, was very responsive in answering our e-mail enquires beforehand. Although, we met him in person only once, he does have a very friendly full-time caretaker on the property who took care of anything that we needed. In summary, this is one the most comfortable Airbnb apartments that we have stayed in anywhere and we highly recommend it For the price, we think it represents amazing value for Kolkata.
Amrit's place was perfect for what we needed in Calcutta.
Comfortable lodgings in a not-too-busy area, in a magnificent building.
Amrit and his lovely porter were extremely helpful and accommodating.
We would definitely stay here again when we next visit.
They was our second time at Amrit's place and we look forward to going back. It is a unique experience, a trip back to old Calcutta.
Bereits ganz kurze Zeit nach der Anfrage erhielt ich von Amrit eine positive Antwort: Das Studio war frei. Welch ein Glück, wie sich herausstellte. Die Unterkunft entspricht in allen Punkten den Angaben Amrits und den sehr positiven Bewertungen der Gäste. Das Studio hat den unvergleichlichen Charme von Alt-Calcutta. Auch Freunde aus Kolkata, die zu einem Tee zu Besuch waren, waren hingerissen vom Raum und der Einrichtung. Wer Sinn für ein traditionelles Haus in Kolkata hat, wird eine sehr gute Zeit im Shakespeare RedBrick Guesthouse verbringen.
Die grossen und hellen Fenster liegen gegen einen Hof, der teilweise mit Bäumen bewachsen ist. Hier tummeln sich Vögel, die einen morgens mit ihrem Zwitschern begrüssen.
Die Lage ist optimal: 2 Metrostationen können bequem zu Fuss erreicht werden, ebenso die Park Street, der Maidan und andere Sehenswürdigkeiten wie z.B. die Victoria Memorial Hall und der Park Street Cemetery. In unmittelbarer Umgebung finden sich gute Restaurants und Geschäfte. Wer sich das Frühstück nicht selber zubereiten möchte, kann gleich um die Ecke ein authentisches indisches Frühstück auf der Strasse (bei Arun) oder in einem gepflegten Restaurant (Govinda's ) geniessen.
Der einwöchige Aufenthalt in Amrits Guesthouse war ein unvergessliches Erlebnis, zu dem auch der freundliche Gastgeber Amrit und dessen hilfsbereiter und liebenswürdiger Hausmeister beigetragen haben. Das Studio an der Shakespeare Sarani kann in jeder Hinsicht uneingeschränkt empfohlen werden.
Amtritendu was extremely welcoming, approachable, gracious, and flexible. The apartment was clean, beautiful, and exactly as advertised. Looks exactly like the photos. The location is excellent.
