Stayed at the charming Chota Kothi for three days and rediscovered a real homestay. Nayana's is not a resort or a room only proposition but you get access to almost the entire house, a real house with used look and a potpourri of curios, old paintings, odd artefacts and rooms adorned with period furniture. Takes you back to a bygone period as you enter the premises. In terms of size more than a bigha of space welcomed us with large garden, verandahs in front and back of the living room and terraces on the first floor. The interiors with mood lighting is subject of envy to any art loving soul, as the attached photographs might suggest. In terms of functionality, hygiene is top notch. The complimentary breakfast came with spanish omlettes and all essential condiments. Shonajhuri

Nayana's Homestay justifies the concept of a Homestay. It is truly a remarkable place to spend few days in another Home. Few highlights : 1) Excellent Host and Nayana really takes care of her guests. 2) Accommodation is well maintained and has all necessary amenities like Geyser etc. 3) Excellent Food from nearby Home delivery from Mr.Borgi.Veg/Non-Veg both are available. 4) Mobile network slightly fluctuating and hence guests should be prepared for that. No High Speed Wi-FI and Cable/Dish TV...Please spend your time in the garden or with Ronny (find out who he is when you visit) 5) Evening Adda with Nayana cannot be missed and it is included in your tariff. 6) B Fast is good but if you are expecting a Buffet spread then please choose J W Marriott instead. 7) Last but not the

In a pandemic filled world, if one wants the security (almost of one’s home), Nayana’s house and the two bedrooms she lets out warmly recommends itself. Very clean, comfortable and unpretentious, the house is a haven of peace. Nayana is a great host: warm, friendly and helpful; and her cook, Maku, makes fabulous Spanish omelettes!

Spent a relaxed weekend at Nayana’s recently. Very cosy and warm home with art and nature spread all around! Though we ate out, had good breakfasts and a dinner dished by Nayana and her caretaker Maku. The rooftop is ideal for an evening binge over local delicacies! Look forward to stay in the winters.

Chota Kuthi is a home away from home. You can unwind undisturbed & just enjoy getting away from the everyday drill of city life. If you're keen on visiting nearby places for a little shopping or want to visit the University museum & some interesting eateries, the ever helpful host, Nayana, can suggest some of the best places suited to your interests & advise you on the best times to visit, routes, transport options etc. In Chota Kuthi, you feel the personal touch & warmth in every room. The rooms are spotless, the meals are excellent & the staff is efficient & discreet. The ample lawn houses a number of interesting flowering plants & trees & is ideal for an evening walk. The open terraces are great for tea time in the evenings. You'll never get bored during your stay. There are
