Very good location. A Nice little guest house with personal touch. The food who had (bengali cuisine) was excellent and tasty. Very courteous and genuine staff. But its a place to spend some time on your own, just like Shantiniketan itself. However I may suggest (critically) some face lifting of the rooms (nothing bad about them although) but just small...

The location is ideal and closest to Visva-Bharati campus bang opposite” Kalor Dokan”. The manager and staffs are excellent and caring. Food is very good. Those who fell in love with Tagore and the culture spread by him should embrace this guest house. The house earlier belonged to Suprio Thakur, a former principal of Patha Bhavan and a descendant of... More

Good and easily accessible location, comfortable, overall clean, and good homely food, perfect setup/background for exploring the surroundings and pursuing one's interests. The prices are reasonable and the staff behavior is also quite cordial. Ample parking space is there, if needed. This is definitely a recommended place to stay in Shantiniketan, in my opinion.

I have used this hotel many times for friends, family and corporate outings. It has only 7 rooms, more a guest house than a hotel. Food is excellent, and spans both Indian, Bengali, and Indian Chinese (a splendid cuisine in itself). I once rented the entire hotel to take my India team for a weekend on a corporate retreat. I...
