We thought of taking my in laws to Shantiniketan on their anniversary this year and what better time to travel than early winters and just before the Poush Mela when it becomes too populated. The next step was to find a place to stay and as we embarked on the search, we realised that it will be a really tough...

We enjoyed the warmth and sensitivity of the review. From the detailed road directions to the choice of rooms and the food options, there are many helpful pointers and encouragements to share in the experience which are greatly appreciated. The difference of Homestays from more traditional guest arrangements should prove very useful to others looking for accommodation in Shantiniketan. We...

Even after getting the booking money and confirming the same, accommodation was cancelled just few days of the Trip. The owner takes money from more than one person and rejects accommodation just like that. Never ever think of visiting this place. Got written confirmation for Booking for 27Dec'15 to 29Dec'15 and suddenly the owner decides to sell the same to...

As the reviewer noted himself, his booking was cancelled and he did not come to Mitali as planned. To see him as "travelled with family" was a surprise! The cancellation was due to a bad oversight on my part (the first and, I hope, the last in my experience!) as I had made two bookings for the same rooms and...

Thank you, dear reviewer, for your appreciation of Mitali and its Homestays, and for your very kind words on our own performance and behaviour as hosts. As our family home, Mitali holds a special place in our lives and sentiments, and it makes the response of people to this home they share, however fleetingly, especially personal and make us particularly...

A brilliantly comfortable place. Extremely friendly people who cook outstanding food. Rooms are large, sunny, airy and air conditioned for that all important creature comfort. The usual cliche of nestled in the lap of nature is a truism here. As added bonus there are book cases filled with books ranging from Russell to Rushdie. A great place to relax, kick...

This is one of the best places to stay in Shantiniketan. The way the owner has maintained the property is commendable. Rooms are really cozy and Bhab Kutir is really nice. They have a huge collection of books and have a mini library in every room. The food is also very good. For sight seeing they will arrange a cab...

Beautiful architecture, excellent maintenance, amazing food, effective and efficient. Memorable experience. We stayed at the suite. Best option as valued the private terrace and the kitchen. Our upbringing has been in Kolkata, always wanted to visit Shantiniketan. Accomplished now ... thanks to the accomodation and vegetarian food options at Mitali. Super thanks. Will visit again and again.

Stay away from this property and it's owner (Mr. Krishno). He may start abusing you from the time of making any booking enquiry.. I made one and he responded with a rate quote (No booking/ commitment was given from either side). Due to some personal exigency, I had to change my travel plan. When the same was communicated to the...
