Kanchan Villa
Ranked #1 of 28 Allahabad B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed November 24, 2012

On a recent visit to India from Melbourne and taking in the sights Allahabad had to offer, and not wanting to stay in a hotel, I came across Kanchan Villa as a place to stay thanks to my taxi driver.

Having stayed in a few hotels in some of the other cities during my travels, I found this home style abode a refreshing change from the hustle and bustle which goes with most Indian cities. Purnima and Ivan are a delightful couple who run this old style family home which provides all the basics a traveller would need in a clean and fresh enviroment. From the moment you step into the home, the warmth and friendliness which is extended to you, is one to be experienced. The room was well furnished, clean and had all the comfortable ammenities one would need. The hospitality extened to us by the family was one of genuine warmth and we felt honoured to be invited to join them in a family meal and get together.

I will be returning to India for a visit again at the end of 2013 and look forward to spending some more time in Allahabad and continuing some of the interesting discussions we had with Purnima and Ivan on the various cultures and festivals celebrated in the country.

Quaint, lush green with a strong feeling of being at home rather than having to stay in the sterilised environment of a hotel (especially in Allahabad, which doesnt have any decent 3-4 star hotels), this B&B run by a very warm and friendly couple is a better option than the some of hotels I personally checked out. The facilities are simple - very well maintained 2-3 rooms, TVs, hot water and staff that is happy to run around and perform smallish chores for you to make your stay comfortable.

Ivan and Purnima sometimes join you in the evening for a drink and interesting conversation and if you are in luck Ivan might even sing some songs while playing his acoustic guitar to liven things up a bit.

Room Tip: Ask for the Green Room, which has a green wall and lovely arabic tiling with a high antique bed.
