Ivan – a guitar-wielding Indian rum enthusiast – and his wife, Purnima, are your South Indian/Bengali hosts at this fabulous homestay offering a window into a rarely seen side of Christian Indian culture. In a historic home nearing its centennial milestone, six rooms are decked out with period furnishings (our fave: Bengali); breakfast (included) can be taken on the lush, 2nd-floor patio.
The lovely staff will cook for you as well, serving up fresh kebabs from the outdoor tandoor, for example. You'll feel right at home in the living room–bar. Pick-up and drops-offs included; otherwise it's a short cycle-rickshaw ride (₹20) from the train station.
Providing free bikes, Kanchan Villa offers accommodation in Allahābād. Complimentary WiFi is featured throughout the property. All units feature air conditioning and a flat-screen TV. Some units include a dining area and/or a balcony. A continental breakfast is available daily at the property. The homestay offers a sun terrace. Guests can also relax in the garden or on the shared lounge area.
