Wonderful hotel”

This is a beautiful hotel, I had a wonderful stay. The quality of the facilities is excellent. I extended my stay because of my good experience and the services on offer. I really enjoyed the atmosphere here. The legacy rooms are larger and are decorated in a more traditional style compared to the contemporary premier/luxury rooms. Both types of rooms are superb – you can’t go wrong which ever you choose. Legacy rooms have marble floors and are in the heritage wing where you see the indoor palm trees in the photos. Lots of choice for food and bars – again the quality is excellent. The pool and spa is a real oasis - we loved swimming and relaxing here. Thanks to Mapuii for a therapeutic massage at the spa. The staff at the Lalit are wonderful - Anjan at front desk was intuitive and extremely helpful. His actions and conduct are an outstanding reflection on his character and the hotel. I would definitely stay again and recommend this hotel in any situation - if you are seeking a luxury stay, a break from the busy city, a place to relax, a central location to explore Kolkata, just a one night stop over or somewhere to hold a function – you will enjoy your time here.

Staff, Breakfast, Location”

We had a great stay during the Pujo. The pros - The staff were very helpful and service was exceptional. Puja helped us plan our pandal hopping, and her suggestion made our pandal hopping very convenient. We took the hotel chauffeur driven car for the pandal hopping, and it couldn't have been better. The room was big, and the view of Kolkata was awesome from the room. The breakfast was mouth-watering, with plenty of options. The had multiple cuisines including, continental, chinese, gujrathi, parathas, idli sambhar and bengali cuisine (luchi torkari misti doi). Absolutely wonderful. The breakfast place was decorated very well in Puja theme, with soft dhak er awaj in the background. Cons - I felt that the spa is extremely high priced, when compared to other international hotel spa prices in Asia. So I didn't try it out. I tried the salon head massage and hair trimming, however didn't like the massage not the trim. Next time I visit Lalit, I would pass the Salon.

Hospitable staffs, location, ambeine of the room

The Lalit is on historical building, nicely located near all the historical sites of the cities, however surrounding was a bit too racked to enjoy the walk. Most taxi do not know the Lalit name but they go by Great Eastern hotel. That should have been mentioned in the guide for customer before arrival. Staff's hospitality was exceptional. I have been in so many hotels in India, I found the staff here is the best, for their personalities and well English-speaking team, from all levels. I was impress by two reception staffs, Nazeen and Jyoti (hope it was correct spelling), the cleaning staffs, particularly Mr Ravi Shangar, team of the guards and those who arrange taxi for guests. They all speak perfect English and very friendly. They do help you in good manner and caring. Room was very pleasant but cannot open the window because the view on the size was really bad old dirty buildings. Gym was too small with bay-window open for street vendor to see, that's deter me from entering the gym. Swimming pool was too small, spa facility is good enough but limited variety, too short session with heavy price. Otherwise the hotel was good. I stayed for 7 days and that is what i can tell. Thanks to all staffs that make this hotel uplifting.

A great five star hotel, but few things remained”

My trips to Kolkata are always great because I get to stay in Lalit Great Eastern. A great hotel with great facilities but their security checking system is a bit wrong. On our last trip last week mis-handled our shopping bags and it went to another customer's room. Later it was found by complaining few times but I do not think checking like an airport check in necessary while getting into a hotel. Also the room boys/delivery staffs are rude. Stepped into my prayer mat while dropping room service food, and asked him why did you step in my prayer mat, didn't reply, didn't even say sorry. Next time I think if I get better options will try that other than Lalit

We only had a single night at the LaLit... wish we had at least a week there. Booked 2 rooms both really wonderful. Location perfect for all business and tourist attractions. Staff are really good... and cleanliness was to international standards... something that can’t really be said for many Indian hotels. Food was good too. All staff were very happy to serve and so friendly - always greeting you with a smile. We are all so happy with our stay there and would highly recommend this hotel to anyone looking for a nice hotel in Kolkata. Go on book it... it’s well worth it. Well done to all the staff and management of the hotel for delivering such a wonderful experience.

Great breakfast, helpful staff, very nice room

We stayed 3 days and had a lovely time. The breakfast buffet was excellent, the rooms were brand new and the bed very comfy. The bathroom had a great rainshower. Tip: The hotel recently changed its name from "Great Eastern" to "Lalit Great Eastern". Taxis drivers haven't gotten that yet... so they won't know where it is if you call it the Lalit Hotel. You have to tell the "Great Eastern Hotel in Dalhousie"That will work better.

Overall a great hotel with only one disappointment..internet is limited to one hour a day and additional cost way too much. This is a 5 star hotel, so it should be included.

This is a century old hotel located near esplanade, Kolkata. We stayed there for only a night but it was a complete 5* experience with friendly staff, great room decor, good location to explore old parts of Kolkata (although this also means that the traffic can ve very bad), and great buffet breakfast.

An oasis in hot and humid Kolkata”

The hotel provides a good 5-star service at a reasonable price. The problem is the series of local taxes that one has to pay for luxury in West Bengal. Soon one realises that eating and drinking outside the hotel in non-5-star establishments is much much cheaper. The hotel is surrounded by such establishments. As a result the hotel bar and restaurants are usually empty. The local luxury taxes have killed many high end businesses in West Bengal, and it is a surprise that 5-star establishments exist in Kolkata!

Me and family were at Lalit Great Eastern in Christmas Eve. The Hotel arranged Christmas party for the kind although we didn't attend. The breakfast is good with a good variety but the space is too small. In the first morning they could not able to give space and hence transferred to 2nd Floor Business lounge.

Clean, good ambience. But, always given wrong tables by the staff for breakfast.”

Cons - if one guest is sitting in a table with 4 chairs, the staff don’t allocate anyone else there and are allocated in the second room whicih is far away from the buffet. Trust me, guests don’t mind sharing their table with other guests during breakfast. I don’t know if it’s a culture in Kolkata, but I’m from Dhaka and I don’t mind if somebody else sits in my table. This was my third stay at The Lalit, I would come back for sure but this needs to change!
