We spent 5 wonderful days during Durga Puja (Durga Puja is held in a park next to the vila which is 107 years old) with extended family in the Vila with Ivan and Purnima (is Bengali), the most hospitable, versatile, friendly hosts you could ever wish to meet, who went out of there way to make our stay a most memorable one. The house is an old (perhaps built in 1932) villa from the colonial days and has very tasteful ethnic furniture (rarely seen these days). The rooms (AC) are very comfortable, spacious and extremely clean, especially room on ground floor (the Bengal Room). Also the location of the villa being in a quiet area of town makes it very relaxing. Conveniently located close to the station and they will provide transport upon request to and from the station and anywhere within the town at a reasonable rate which makes life and getting around a lot easier. Excellent food is served by friendly young staff personally supervised by Purnima. Last but not the least the hosts are having 3 friendly dogs. Every bit of it made our visit to Allahabad all the more enjoyable from October 9 to 13, 2013.
