    Loved this Artsy Guesthouse!

    by

    We loved our stay at the Bodhi Tree! Since there were four of us, we opted for the 2 bedroom Bodhi Master Suite. We had 2 bedrooms (one with a canopied double bed and one with two twin beds) - each with a full attached bathroom, a living room, a full kitchen, and a kitchen/dining table. The living room had a Bonsai Zen Garden. Extras were free WiFi, A/C and a flat screen TV. It was a very comfortable stay. We had a fresh Indian breakfast served in our suite or in the lovely patio garden.

    The guesthouse is personal with only 5 rooms. Artwork - painting, sculptures, etc. - decorate the the entire space and it makes for a very cozy place.

    Located in the quiet Swiss Park residential area this guesthouse is about 5 minutes to the metro station. It is very near to Kalighat Temple, Mother’s House, and South City Mall. I'd definitely recommend staying here.

    Directions: Rabindra Sarovar Metro Station

    ART GALLERY CUM GUEST HOUSE!

    by

    This quaint little guest-house, tucked away in a side street in South Kolkata, has so much potential. The rooms are tastefully decorated and clean. It is residence that has been converted into what is a confusing mixture of accomodation and an art-gallery. The whole of the ground floor has walls lined with Indian art (for sale), and even on the 3 upper floors and outside sitting area, there are paintings and sculptures. This is eye-catching, and aesthetically attractive.
    Unfortunately, the owner of Bodhi Tree, Devdan, keeps himself hidden on the top-floor, and we could only speak with him "by appointment". He leaves the day to day running of the place to an "office manager", who, although a pleasant young fellow who tries his best, has minimal English. Communication was very difficult. The rest of the staff were as helpful as they could be. under the circumstances. I really feel that Bodhi Tree needs a more "hands-on" approach. by the owner.
    The bathrooms have a hot water system that is so complicated that one needs to be a genius to work it out- we could never get more that a few minutes of hot water from the shower at any given time (even after MANY complaints & queries, and demos from the staff) It was just NOT working for us-in any room! It became a bit of a joke after a while.
    Breakfasts are served- out of sequence- (everything came at once) but I did mention this to Devdan, the owner- and it was corrected. The food was basic but adequate.
    The little outdoor sitting area downstairs is blissfully peaceful- we ate out breakfast there, and it was a good place to sit and read.
    The staff were helpful in ordering taxis for us, although we also used the nearby underground Metro system to get to Esplanade & Park Street areas.
    All in all, I would say that this is not bad choice for accomodation in Kolkata- if one could be VERY patient, and overlook the frustrations of lack of hot-water & accessability to the owner, who could really improve the problems that occured, almost daily. It is not managed on a professional basis.
    I also think that the website for Bodhi Tree is slightly misleading regarding size and amount of rooms available. I would stay here again.

    Unique Quality: Art- art- art everywhere.

    Proximity to the Metro

    Internet Facilities are available (NOT free)

    Televisions are in each room.

    Rooms all have different themes- (avoid Yoga Cara- it is for Dwarfs only)

    Kolkata's first Boutique Guesthouse

    by

    Went to visit my friends from UK who were staying in Bodhi Tree for 4 nights.
    It is such a great place that I wanted to list Bodhi Tree.
    Fantastic decor - New Age Theme , with all the hotel facilties ( Free WiFi ..thats new ! ).
    All the rooms have different names and different kind of decor .
    My friends were very happy with their stay .
    Hence , I assume , the service was also good .

    Unique Quality: Boutique Decor . Very calm and peaceful ( not a party place ! ).

    Directions: Close to Rabindra Sarovar Metro Station - Swiss Park .
