Be it a drive in the yellow and black ambassador taxi, eating jhal muri, singhada and chai on the streets, listening to Rabindra Sangeet, reading a book or dedicating oneself to art and culture, eating ilish maach on that Sunday morning freshly bought from new market or going shopping on a hand-pulled / cycle rickshaw is what made a true Calcuttan!!
The Mandeville, nestled in a peaceful Firangipani lined lane in the upscale neighborhood of Ballygunge, makes you revisit Calcutta in the 1970s. Every corner of this building speaks volumes about Calcutta and Calcuttans. It is an elegant guest house that embodies the sophisticated, warm, refined and cultured soul of Calcutta. Fantastically and tastefully done up in the Colonial style, the place echoes the culture and ethos of a city which is also known as the cultural capital of India.
It has all the modern amenities with elegant and classical touches overlooking garden vistas. The Ancient wood façade greets you with the portrait of Calcutta – the vintage Ambassador car which is converted into a reception desk will surely make you have a flashback. Their outdoor garden style atrium seating for breakfast and the rickshaw of British era let your imagination go wild with the intrigue of a Satyajit Ray style detective story or James Bond style chase.

Calcutta is not a city but an emotion, so come and experience a part of its legacy with them. Staying here is such a joyful experience that it will surely make you understand why Calcutta earned the epithet of the City of Joy.
