Worst type of dealing. Never ever faced such treatments
by Ashokchakravorty on
I would never ever recommend anyome to rely on the bookings in advance of this so called hotel. Attached is the receipt of Advance bookings and payments made. We (a group of 5 ) were on the train from Howrah, 1 hr into the journey, and a call comes in that they are unable to provide us rooms for the day. Can you beat this ? Luckily, we found a good hotel, otherwise it would be a disaster. The best place to stay would be WB Tourism guest house. You can rely on any hotel, but Banshori. Also, their food quality, service etc are horrible - heard from very reliable source

Our stay at Banshori was excellent. The rooms were clean and the staff was well behaved. Of late several alternatives to hotels have come up in Santiniketan and Banshori is certainly one of the best, not in terms of the luxury but in terms of the feel. Located at the heart of Ratanpally, Banshori offers easy access to the central places one usually visits at Santiniketan. Yet, here one would get different co-travellers compared to those who prefer Bhuvandanga hotels. And, the food is really excellent. Don't forget to top up the evenings with beguni and shingara just outside.
Banshori, a marvelous experience
by Rudranjan_1 on
This isn't my first time in Bolpur, Ive been to the place thrice before the present visit. Banshori is a magnificent discovery which I made this time. The hotel situated in Ratanpalli offers one of the best services a boarder can get. The staff is extremely friendly and especially the food, which will remind you of the colors of the simplicity of rural Bengal. The property belonged to the Tagores, which has now been modified to as a hotel. The balcony space and the beautiful sitting area of the hotel represent the royal characteristics of feudal Bengal. Do not confuse it with a four or five star hotel, enjoy the perfect blend of simplicity along with comfort in Banshori.

Banshori Guesthouse is in Ratanpally just opposite of Kanu Tea Shop and very near to the Shantiniketan Campus. We stayed at Room number 4 and it was wonderful experience. I dont know why some people had given poor feedback here. Hospitality is very very good. All the staffs are very responsive.
Banshori - A Heritage Property
by SoumyadeepPatra on
Banshori initially housed of Tagore Family members and hence is a heritage building in itself which is said to be one of the best residential places in Santi Niketan. We were staying during Poush Mela last year December. Banshori is positioned at Ratan Pally which closed to Visva Bharati Campus just few minutes walking. The place is quite silence and easy accessible from different places in Santi Niketan. As I mentioned early, this was housed of Tagore Family, you will definitely feel like you are staying someones home rather than a hotel. We were very pleased after having a wonderful reception from each staff of Banshori. You will find numerous history captured inside their property. Rooms are well enough even they are very old (Clean, Hygiene) but you should not compare with other 3* + properties in Santi Niketan. We enjoyed our stay a lot and my 4 years old son also enjoyed their garden, corridor and dining. They have own parking space inside boundary. And when it comes to food, ahhhh.mouthwatering traditional Bengali food. We had our breakfast, lunch and dinner for all days were staying and they were fabulous. You can see their kitchen from dining and you can access as well if you have a child with you. Overall it feels like you are in home. You can book a toto and roam around Santi Niketan. We will definitely visit again for sure this year.
Opt for the rooms on the second floor which connects the balcony and the sitting area.

1st Floor would be Preferable.
by SoumyadeepPatra on May 3, 2018
Go for 1st floor room no.6 or room no. 4.
