If you are looking for a home away from home, in Kolkata, you've come to the right place. Tucked away in the press of humanity that is Goabagan, this house is simple, comfortable, and comforting. The owner, Gaurab, is helpful beyond measure and always ready with a story, retold on his rooftop, under the open sky, with an unending pot of coffee. The rooftop is also the home for live music (I was lucky to have been there when a brilliant Iranian nomad musician and artist was cohabiting the place). I came for two nights, i stayed for four extra :) It is that kind of place. Rooms are large, spare but comfortable, the windows adorned with beautiful crowd-sourced sarees. You will not be waited on hand and foot, and there is no room service. There is no elevator, so you will have to carry your bags up 3-4 flights of stairs. So come here if you are ok with that and are game making yourself a cuppa, or running down the street to grab a bite. Come here if you like stories and old places, living simply, walking and lounging and mingling with your house-mates. Bhubanbari is more a home than a hotel, and Gaurab and Nandini will send you away heart-happy. I will surely be coming back here. Thank you, guys!

Wow! I could not have picked a better place to stay in Kolkata. Great location, such a cosy and inspiring interior and, most of all, wonderful hospitality from Gaurab. I could not have felt more welcomed and have made a friend in the process. The place feels very safe, yet connected to the rest of the city. An night one can relax in the rooftop kitchen by fairy light and listen to the music and noises of Kolkata. By day, it is very close to walk to the tram for connections or onto main streets for local amenities. Great food nearby also! Myself, I enjoyed getting a dosa from just below and round the corner, delicious. Thank you for my stay, I will certainly be visiting again :)

Nuestra experiencia en Bubhan Bari fue muy agradable. Estuvimos durante 2 meses. Es una casa tradicional recién restaurada y decorada con gusto exquisito. Esta en un barrio no turistificado, con mercados, la universidad, el Indian Café y con la parada de metro de Girish Park muy cerca. Muy limpia. Habitaciones amplias. El dueño es fantástico. Un lugar al que volver y que pedimos que se siga conservando y cuidando.

I had a very pleasant time at Bhubambari. I liked the magic atmosphere and the sense of being home, that is very important while you travel. The kitchen on the veranda is cozy, very welcoming, full of plants. Gaurab, the owner, is always there to help you with informations, suggestions and very interesting conversations about Indian culture. It was my best experience in India and I am looking forward to be back. Thank you Bhubambari!!

We rented BhubanBari for two days for a get together for our family. We loved the space. Gaurab, the owner, who is a film maker in Tollygunj, met us and showed us the rooms and bathrooms. Everything was very clean. The artwork on the walls is spectacular, and the house itself is an old mansion from the 1900s. The decor is all from that period and I believe Gaurab found all the furniture from antique dealers - everything looks vintage and beautiful, but it looks like a home, not a hotel. We loved the kachuri and jilipi in the morning from Nandi Sweets, and the Chinese food from Capri was yummy for the price - home delivery too! Sukumar, the cleaning person, was also super helpful (for a small fee) and made our stay really comfortable. The terrace is the best place in the house - green and pretty - a wonderful place for staying up late and chatting :-) I heartily recommend this place, and Gaurab, the owner, is a fabulous host.
