#3 of 26 B&Bs / Inns in Bolpur
The house is located at Baganpara, off the Bolpur-Suri main road and is easily accessible via local transport. The Viswabharati campus is also pretty close and is again, easily accessible via local transport (which can be arranged on prior request). We do not serve full meals at this point as we believe while you are at Shantiniketan, it's best to roam around and have lunches or dinners at the lovely restaurants around. However, we have an ever-smiling couple who would wake you up with a hot cup of tea for a perfect start to the day and follow it up with a nice little breakfast. There are 2 types of rooms available for your stay that can together accommodate a maximum of 8 guests. The rooms are spacious so that you don't feel cramped out of space. One of them, the suite room, has two attached bathrooms and the other, the standard double room, has one. The most attractive part of the stay might well be the balcony which is so perfect for those long conversations that you probably might lose track of the time; that's what has happened to us over the years and that's exactly why this is still our personal favourite place in the house. We love music, we love Tagore (silly, but that was THE reason we thought of building this house at Shantiniketan, a good 30 years back), and we would love to have people who share this passion. However, as a gesture of peaceful co-existence to the neighbours, we politely request guests not to indulge in playing loud music which might seem out of place and not of good taste with the surroundings and we're sure they understand. If this sounds like home to you, we're sure it'll feel like home too, once you are here.

We are really amazed to see such a beautiful accommodation with well managed system by Mr.Lahiri.No negative remark stands after visiting this place. It will be better if they can arrange a homely Cook for customised food.

It was a sudden plan, we four friends headed towards bolpur for a short winter bike ride form Chandannagar to bolpur around 140kms. Day before the ride, I was for searching for hotel's in bolpur, there were lots of option but from all of them we decided to choose pubali homestay as it is economical and the pictures were giving a feel of home. As we entered the stay, there is a well maintained beautiful garden. Also there are enough space for parking bikes. Even the locality is very peaceful. The rooms were well cleaned, everything was well decorated, infact the care taker(Budi) assisted us well. One more thing I want to write about a very gentle person Mr. Lahiri (owner), the person who contacted me, guided us very well to the location and took care for all of our things. Staying at Pubali Homestay never felt like out of home. Thank you for such a good stay.
