Ancestral home was rebuilt after being bombed during 2nd WW in 1947 and recent restoration started in 2007 to provide homely ambience to guests. Home is in the heart of city, ideal to try out restaurants offering local & vegetarian food at walking distance including taxi/bus stands. Asia's only women's market IMA Market, the historic Shamu Makhong, the statue of the then Maharaja Bhagyachandra & Kangla Fort, the sacred place to learn the rich heritage and culture of Manipur are very closeby.
“This is a great place to stay. It fits in the budget of all types of guests. The location is superb as it is in the heart of the city, just opposite Ima Market. Shekhar is a great host who will take care of you very much. Right from providing directions, local tips, restaurant tips, all arrangements regarding your travel in Imphal and Manipur.. he can do it all. The property is super clean. I would definitely stay there if I visit Imphal again.”
There are three rooms (Hearth of Imphal 2 & Hearth of Imphal-Attic) [book separately if guests are more then 2] with a capacity of 5-6 persons (charged per person). Guests can use the three common baths with hot water, one kitchen space, one dining space and common area with plenty of books to read. No TV. Wi-Fi only. The lawn with food garden & little pond is open guests. Ask if you want to help in the food garden. If you are sharing a room with a stranger, you might need to make adjustments.
“The location is excellent. We got all the facility of being in the centre of Imphal yet it was quiet. Ram and Nandini are wonderful hosts always helping with their tips and guidance. Starting from how to reach their home to visiting Loktak or shopping, they helped us in every step by giving direction and at times,by drawing a map.The complimentary breakfast was too good. We asked them to arrange dinner for us. That dinner was delicious. The place was very clean and beautifully decorated. Everything was good but mostly we love the warmth or Ram and Nandini. We felt as if we were staying with our friends. If anyone is visiting Imphal, this is the place to be.”
If you are looking out for a place with easy accessibility to cab service, food delivery or tuk tuk without compromising the luxury this will be the right place for you. The famous KANGLA FORT & KING'S PALACE is just a km away from the place (10mins walk). We can provide tour service and airport pick up & drop service on your request. Airport is just 20mins away on peak traffic hour from the place.
“Ayrton’s place is well located in the heart of the Imphal city. The rooms are best equipped with all the essential amenities, and are sparkling clean. Access to his apartment has separate entrance which gives me privacy and easy access during check in and check out. There is no issue of electricity and water despite the fact that it is in Manipur state. His kitchen is well equipped with everything and the vegetable market is just outside the doorstep of his apartment, which actually is a plus point for me who wants home made foods. I would definitely cent percent recommend his apartment. I’ll make a visit in the near future once again for sure, and will choose his place. A very big thumbs up.”
