    A genuine Calcutta institution undergoing extensive renovations.”

    Certainly not the cheapest place in town! but service is exceptional. Sometimes this can be a bit over the top E.G. Being asked just about every mouthful if a meal is ' to my satisfaction', and having the Lalit corporate jingle being played in the hotel car during the 5am transfer from hotel to airport is probably a bit too much. But these are minor complaints and this is a favorite Indian hotel.

    Nice hotel around night clubs of Kolkata”

    The overall ambiance and facilities are great, staffs are helpful but the surrounding area is not family friendly. The hotel is very center of Kolkata and you have to travel by taxis all the time if you stayed there. The only problem I found that the major night clubs are located in the same lane and surround environment is not quite family friendly for walking.

    Beautiful, modern hotel with traces of historic building that add character. We had a large, comfortable room in the old section of the hotel. Service was excellent, buffet breakfast was humongous, and location is central (although right next to seedy side street).

    Nice Hotel”

    The Lalit is a nice hotel but all the services are overpriced, such as meals and drinks etc. You expect to pay more at an establishment like this, but there's a point where you start to think your being taking advantage of. I have stopped at all the top 5 star hotels on my trips to India and he Lalit was probably the lowest standard of the big 10 in india. But don't be put off It is a nice hotel ,clean and a good breakfast.

    Exceptional service with good location”

    Exceptionally attentive staff. Marvellous breakfast especially the dessert section. Spacious room with all the amenities. Good location, about 400 m to the metro and abundant of taxis and auto to take you anywhere (they also provide a car service too.) One minus is that there was a party (?) at a pub downstairs and the sound kept booming into our room until the party was over around 2 am. in the morning. Other than that it was a very pleasant stay.

    Nice Stay”

    Nice hotel.. . If u love architecture,this is the place to be. The hotel is divided into 2 parts, one being the New one, other being the one from the time of Britishers. Staffs are very friendly. I booked three Victorian suits for my family & had a lovely stay for 2 days here. It was a memorable experience. One major problem was the room key & lift activator to the floors. We had to seek assistance 2 -3 times. Please prefer to stay in the Vintage rooms.Victorian suites are amazing. Definitely looking forward to visit it again.

    Nice hotel, frustrating stay”

    I booked the Lalit as it was conveniently-located and on sale, and paid through Agoda. Agoda did not send through the booking confirmation - this is the third time this has happened to me, and the second time in ten days. It meant a long delay to check in when I arrived at 8pm, when I had already been awake and travelling and working since 2.30am. Staff seemed unaware I was coming, and that I had paid, and would not show me to my room because Agoda had not confirmed. They also expected me the next day to have checked out, when the vouched I had clearly showed I had paid for a two-night stay. They also failed to register a credit card when I did finally check in, and also failed to tell me this would me I would have to pay for room service the moment it arrived - which added another level of frustration to the experience, waiting for card payments to go through while I was trying to start eating. It just comes across as very disorganised.

    Good hotel some limitations ”

    Very nice rooms, clean spacious and comfortable. Staff all friendly and smartly dressed. Easy to get to attractions from hotel. Good gym facilities but disappointing pool area as it was so very cold. We had booked this hotel as we thought the pool would be a welcome break some days but was too cold to use. There was hardly ever anyone brave enough to go in. I would have liked to have a nice sitting area to read or have a drink but there was no facility for this,. It would have been nice to sit and chill after a day in the city but we had to go to our room

    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.

    Totally Unexpected - brilliant service ”

    Welcome - security and bell staff / concierge staff was really good. Pleasant, friendly and very polite staff. Check in - the reception and check in was relatively easy. Staff were extremely attentive and had a good knowledge of processes. No complaints there too. Both rooms we booked were close by, as requested. Breakfast - we arrived mid morning and decided to have a snack while we were waiting for the rooms. Very good.... not something we experienced at other Indian hotels. Location - city centre location. Walking distance of shopping, restaurants and tourist attractions / main business districts. Cleanliness and Housekeeping - there a very few hotels in India where the cleanliness standards are maintained to international standards. This is one that has very high standards. Well done. Many Indian hotels have no appreciation for cleanliness. They don’t seem to understand the need to maintain clean rooms, bathroom and general accommodation. Value - well worth price
