  1. I have the privilege of mobilizing and leading volunteers to serve the least of these in countries around the world. Of all of the places I visit, the BMS guesthouse in Kolkata is my favorite place to stay. It is like a second home. I appreciate the kindness of the staff, the cleanliness of the facilities, and the willingness of everyone at BMS to make every stay comfortable for me and my teams. Thank you for your hospitality.

    5 years ago my friend and I stumbled upon BMS on our first short term mission trip to Kolkata… we’ve been back a number of times and wouldn’t stay anywhere else! I liken it to having a sleep-over at your best friend’s place… you feel at home from the time you arrive, and when it’s time to leave there are many fond farewells and tears, just like at any family gathering.
    The garden is one of my favourite places for a little time out… beautiful flowers, soft green grass and tall shady trees make it a very inviting place! It truly is an oasis in the busy busy city.
    God bless you heaps 😀

    It was so awesome to walk through the gate after a busy day on the streets of Kolkata, I felt like I was home. I thoroughly enjoyed my (almost) 3 weeks spent at the Guesthouse. Thank you to Samir for doing our laundry and to the guys who made us breakfast every day and to the men at the gate who gladly hailed us a cab when needed. We loved our rooms and the cleanliness of the BMS. We couldn’t have asked for a better place to stay! I got my exercise too walking up 46 stairs 3 times per day 🙂

    You are all wonderful people and are in my thoughts and prayers!!!

    Thank you and hope to see you again!

    Dear Aruna and Staff,
    I’ve just returned home from a 6 week stay at BMS,Kolkata. The love, warmth and kindness I experienced there defies description. I look forward to my next visit sometime this year. Let’s hope you have a place for me. I felt at home with you from day 1. What better tribute can I pay you than this?

    Dear Aruna and All your wonderful staff,
    I’ve just returned from a 6 week stay in your beautiful, tranquil guesthouse. I feel blessed to have chosen such a haven in which to stay. When the gracious security men opened the gate for me at the end of my day’s work I felt so safe and cared for in a city which to the outsider seems hostile and dangerous. But my experience of your city was not at all like that. I never felt uneasy or fearful. The greatest tribute I can pay you is that I kept referring to BMS as ”home” and my fellow volunteers found that hilarious!

    Thank you one and all for being so hospitable and for making Christmas 2011 so special. I hope you have a room for me when I return.

    Blessings and Peace

    Everyone is correct. It is an oasis amongst a huge city with lots of challenges. Once you walk through the front gate, you felt safe and sound. What a blessing to have that to go home to every evening.

    Aruna and all the staff, We stayed there in 2012 with 12 students and 5 leaders and plan to be back there again Easter 2014 with a similar group. It is indeed a real tropical oasis amidst the chaos of the city. God Bless, Aidan Jordan St Patricks School Navan Ireland

    Spent only about 7 hours in BMS’s double room,very impressed by the efficiency and warmth of the staff, the cleanliness of the place, and the cheap and wholesome meals in the canteen.The location is central, and the staff will help you get transport to the airport or train station and fix the price before you board the taxi.

    I have been staying at the BMS guest house for over 35 years and always enjoyed my stay and the quality of hospitality there.
    I have and will always recommend the BMS guest house to my friends and relatives.
    One of the issues that could be addressed is contacting the guest house during the weekend if there’s an emergency reservation of Accommodation from outside Kolkata.

    I am compelled to take the time to write a letter of commendation for how amazingly well Baptist Missionary Society handles their guest with professionalism, patience, efficiency and pleasantness. From the moment we walked through your doors we were charmed and thrilled! Our room was very neatly kept, clean, and comfortable, and our stay was very quiet as well. Your location and budget-friendly price, is outstanding and could not be beaten.

    Thank you again for your friendly staff, economical pricing, and orderly accommodations. Baptist Missionary Society certainly added to the charm of an ideal and safe stay in Kolkata

  34. That’s sad. When I visited, I stayed at Hotel Heaven…while there I visited BMS and that will be my home away from home on my next visit! I’ve spread the word for all others from the US as I found it safe, clean with a very knowledgeable and welcoming staff!

    We have just returned from our time in India and I wanted to write a quick a quick thanks and recommendation for Anu and the team and BMS. We had never been to India before, so were a bit nervous, but Anu was wonderful prior to our arrival in giving good advice on arriving well. We were picked up at the airport and our faithful driver waited about 2 hours as the airline had lost our luggage – yet he still greeted us cheerfully, despite it being a public holiday and him missing time with his family. When we arrived, we had every question answered and a clean room ready for the family (four of us, two kids under 12). The guys in the kitchen were great too, with basic, but tasty meals for very low price. Then finally, when we left at 4am one morning, the guys on the gate bent over backwards to ensure we got to the airport, despite an Uber failure and few taxis wanting to do that trip at that time for some reason. Thank you Anu and the whole team. Our Kolkata experience was excellent, thanks to all of you.

    I’ve sent email for reservation. Waiting for your response:)

  39. I stayed in BMS for severals weeks in the beginning of 2020. It is one of the best places you can stay at as a volunteer. All the others were jealous of me 🙂
    BMS is close to “motherhouse”, has a nice atmosphere and nice staff. Thanks a lot!
