The Discreet Charm of a Family-Run Hotel
We offer you the opposite of budget hotels. Our rooms are large and full of natural light, there's enough space for you to do yoga or push-ups inside your room. And if you are the sort who doesn't like to stay cooped up in a room, step out and use our sizeable living room space. These are well-appointed with several sets of tables and chairs, so you can have your own quiet corner. There is wifi, there are books you can borrow from our shelves, and there is book art. The whole house is done up with books covers, and drawings and illustrations from Bengali books.
Bengal is about books, that's usually the first thing people say about Bengalis, that we're bookish. That is why we called our house Boi-er Bari (House of Books) because we are bookish like that
Classic double room, air-cooled, with a mirror, desk and chair, television, bedside table, and wardrobe
Named after Satyajit Ray's famous private-eye Pradosh C Mitter, better known to the world as Feluda. The room has all the space and comfort and things you need to get your Feluda juices going
A single room fitted with wardrobe, dressing table, bedside tables and shelves. Ensuite washroom. Air-cooled.
Bawt-tala means under the banyan tree. In Sukumar Ray's classic children's work, classes were convened under a banyan tree and much mayhem ensued. Our first floor is devoted to the Bengali's vocation--reading, writing and studying--so this room is about learning and all the mayhem it entails.
To make a reservation…
- Rs 1,650 for a classic air-cooled single
- Rs 2,050 for a classic air-cooled double
- Rs 5,000 for the entire floor comprising 3 air-cooled bedrooms + 3 bathrooms + living dining space and kitchen (6 guests, extra charges for the 7th person)
From 15 April 2021 onward, as the deadly second wave of Covid19 is surging across the country, we have made our reservation policy very stringent in order to check the spread of infection. To stay, you need to have full vaccination certificate, that is both doses for two-dose vaccines. And for single dose vaccines like Johnson & Johnson or the Sputnik *Light*, one certificate will suffice. For Indian nationals, the CoWin application interface would be ideal for verification, unless you received your doses were received overseas. In that case, we would request cross-checking with your passport for foreign trips around the time of your vaccination doses.
All guests must produce valid passports and visa at the time of check-in. Indian nationals must produce government ID with the address at the time of check-in. If a man and a woman are staying in one room, they have to provide ID Proof having the same residential address or a copy of their marriage certificate (applicable to Indian nationals only).
