It is a homestay. So you are treated like a guest in a private home rather than a client in a hotel. The hosts are a very welcoming couple and we felt right at home. Since it is a homestay, if you are going to arrive on time for a meal, please let them know in advance. Pros: 1) The food is excellent. It is home cooked food. It cannot get any better. 2) They helped us book local sightseeing and arrange for vehicle to drop us at the next destination. They don't take the usual "hotel-cut" and hence we got the best rates. 3) We got the Bengal Room and it and its attached bathroom were clean and spacious. 4) We had an early check-out and the hosts were quite happy to accommodate our request. 5) The wifi connectivity and speed were good. Cons: 1) The location is not great if you are here for sightseeing. Only Khusrau Bagh is close by. Everything else is bit of a long haul. But the hosts do arrange for a e-rickshaw at short notices. If you are coming from outside, please use Google maps.
Charming hosts, delightful place.”
The fireplace in the living room was lovely on a chilly night. A little hard to find as the house is tucked away on a narrow street, but worth the effort.
The hosts are good conversationalists and served a hearty dinner. Bed
comfortable and a good hot shower.
friendly caring and professional owners
The owners, the rooms, help from the owners.
After arriving in Allahabad late at night and staying in a terrible hotel we found Kanchan Villa! So far it has been the high light of our trip! We were welcomed by the owners Ivan and Purnima with a breakfast and they organised every thing for us including tours, further accommodation and train transfers. We ate dinner with them and heard Ivan's story's over a rum in his bar. Our only regret is that we were only able to stay one night. Defiantly a must if you are visiting Allahabad!"read less
