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!

The stay at The Lalit Great aeastern was wonderful. The rooms are very very spacious. The staff is extermely courteous. Truly felt special as the staff accomodated every request. The service in the restaurant was really good despite the fact the hotel was fully booked and the restaurant was full.

We just spent 4 nights in a legacy room and WoW this hotel is impressive. It starts with the endless amount of staff always there to welcome you and attend to your needs. They always made me smile from the security to the bell hops always there with a Namaskar!

The hotel itself is immaculate such amazing thought into the restoration and materials used.

The room we stayed in was immaculately cleaned another example of the great service. I think my room attendants name was bismath? He cleaned 2201 and took pride in his work, which is great to see. The room was very spacious, comfortable and quiet. The wifi is a great speed. The only negative is the bar fridge which was either broken or never gets cold. I had to request ice many times for cold drinks. I think actual mini fridges would be greatly welcomed by all guests.

We didn’t have the buffet breakfast included and ate at the bakery which was superb and the staff there from chef Arup and sever Anirban really stood out to us as amazing employees there to serve you at the highest level. Those are the star employees any business would love to have.

The location of the hotel is a godsend from the utter chaos of Kolkata streets.

Really I could go on and on with praises for this hotel. I’m sure if Mr. Lalit was still around he would be very proud of all his staff at The Great Eastern. I’ve traveled all around the world and stayed at many different hotels and our stay in Kolkata will always be a positive memory.

Thank You!

I highly recommend staying here without a second thought.

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Asia's first luxury hotel, The Lalit Great Eastern is a heritage landmark located in the main business and shopping district of Kolkata. Restored and renovated over a period of seven years, the hotel holds the distinction of being the longest continuously operating hotel for 165 years. Built in 1841 as Auckland Hotel, it has been referred to as the 'Jewel of the East' and the 'Best Hotel East of the Suez'. 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. The original Heritage Block radiates the charm of the British Colonial Era, while the Modern Block incorporates a contemporary look and feel. These blocks have been seamlessly connected despite their distinct character and decor. ... more   less
