We stayed there from 28th to 31st Dec 2020. Like the year itself, this place is a big disaster. It is not a hotel, but a residential place. A few "houses/ studio flats" are being let out as hotel. There are 20 room in total among about 200 flats spread across at least 10 building. It is on your luck the kind of room you'd end up with. We booked 2 rooms that were in 2 different blocks and buildings. 1 room was decent, the other was "over done" in terms of interiors and looked quite garish. These buildings do not have lifts, so you have to pick up your luggage and drag it up manually. It was quite cold that time. we asked for extra blanket, they did not have any. The pillows (did not even have covers!), mattresses, blankets are not standardized, and look like bought from road side shops. They were not even cleaned properly and were very unhygienic. They were actually smelling. In times of Covid, this is extremely appalling. They refused to change these when asked to and did not have any replacement. Had we not paid in advance, we wouldn't have stayed there. The food is ok. The place claims to have free room service but the joke is there is no way to contact the front office, as there are no landlines and absolutely no mobile/ internet connectivity. There is least effort put in to ensure guests' comfort. Overall, a very bad experience…

It's a perfect place for family holidays, well maintained and good cordial stuff. Very homely food in very reasonable price. Apart from madding crowd. Best place to stay at santinikatan. It is a perfect place for the kids.
Panthashala is a fantastic one ! Very warm atmosphere . Very cordial ! Feeling of home away from home ! Thoroughly enchanting! This is value for money to me! Nice experience for family with kids and friends!
Neat and clean room and bathroom. Very well behaved staffs. Nice peaceful area just beside the jungle. Food quality is also good. Book online at dirt cheap rate. Only problem is with mobile connectivity. Only JIO works.
