Excellent all round service at the Lalit Great Eastern. Everyone of the staff members was extremely cordial and polite, with good immediate attention to any queries put to them.
The high point of my 3 day stay was surely the breakfasts, the range and choice were astounding, they were by far better than the other 5 star accommodations I have stayed at.
I look forward to staying here again in the not-too-distant future!

Over the years, the hotel has been the favourite haunt of royalty and celebrities from across the world. The Lalit Great Eastern, now restored to its original glory, is an amalgamation of the styles of 3 different eras of history - Victorian, Edwardian and Contemporary, reflected in Heritage Block 1, Heritage Block 2 and the New Block respectively.
