Calcutta Bunglaow, Kolkata
Our rating: Superior | Property style: Boutique Hotel
This 1920's townhouse was bought and restored by a local walking tour company that were disheartened by the number of architectural gems that would fall into disrepair in their beloved city. With only six rooms, service is personable and attentive. The boutique rooms are split over three floors and have been lovingly decorated by local designer Swarup Dutta, beautifully blending stylish, contemporary interior design with old world charm. All accommodation is well appointed with high-end amenities such as high-speed Wi-Fi, air conditioning, smart T.V.s and Kama Ayurveda toiletries. Facilities at the intimate heritage property include a dining room with tea, coffee and snacks; a rooftop space perfect for lounging or yoga; and a kitchen serving a fresh, healthy breakfast and a handful of European and Bengali dishes for lunch and dinner. Located in the authentically Bengali part of the city, that British colonisers dubbed 'black town', the property is a three-minute walk from public transport links and staff can help arrange car and bike rental.
