About Location

Kolkata, the city of joy India, remained India's capital till 1911. Kolkata, on the Hooghly, retains the aura of days long gone, weaving the past and the present, the intense and the fun-loving into a charming fabric. Home to four Nobel laureates - Ronald Ross, Rabindranath Tagore, Mother Teresa and Amartya Sen, Kolkata is the nerve centre of intellect and human values, where many modern movements began in art, cinema and theatre, science and industry. India's quest for freedom began here.

Kolkata is the gateway to Eastern India. A city with a rich heritage, bustling streets and bewildering variety of facets. From October to March, Kolkata wears a radiant look. Sunshine, mild winter, lights, colours, fairs, festivals, galas and excursions, the mood is infectious and spirit sweeping.

Testimonial

Kolkata is a more relaxing place for the fact that we can stayed at Mr. Gupta's place, which is so well located. Inside the house we can relax and enjoy. The best of course is the company. Mr. and Mrs. Gupta, both are well traveled and full of fun and interesting stories. Yet, if we want to read or relax on our own, that is also possible. The room is very comfortable and the terrace with so many plants is an interesting place to relax in the mornings and evenings. The breakfast provided is delicious, with no pressure to eat more than you want. I always have had a restful time, while being able to visit the sites of the city. The room is comfortable, bathrooms clean and Mrs. Gupta is always there for anything I might be missing.Brian - Germany
