Great experience at this hotel in Kolkata The services and the team are just spectacular and the kind gesture the manager shares of welcoming all his guests is simply great Fantastic and energetic team special mention to desk top manager who makes me feel in this hotel as my second home alway. It was an excellent, peaceful stay and the location suited our purpose beautifully . There is good energy once you enter the hotel with the height of the ceiling giving a sense of vastness and open space. Smooth check-in, great rooms - excellent.
We stayed at Lalit Great Eastern Hotel during the last week of August 2014, for a leisure trip. We had booked Superior room for 3 nights & got room in the Heritage Wing. All the staff are polite, co-operative & ready to help you all the time. Their unique way of greeting everybody with a "Namaste" is really appreciated & this is part of their culture I believe, since sweeper to General Manager. It was really a very nice experience & we never had any problem. The check-in procedure was express fast, directly taken us to room & did all necessary formalities in the room. The room is very well maintained, neat & clean. The room has all necessary items like coffee maker, mini-bar, complimentary mineral water, news paper, electronic locker, etc. They provided a heritage touch in the room & kept one old pillar in the room. All old furnitures were re-used with refurbished & polished, for heritage touch. There is no balcony in the room. The bathroom is also very clean, spacious & with all necessary amenities. There is no bath tub there as it is a heritage property. The complimentary buffet breakfast had lot of varieties, both Indian & continental. The food was very tasty & service was excellent. Ready to serve any items as per customer requirements. The swimming pool is in ground floor & we did not check it due to time constraint. We also had a property visit arranged by Hotel staff as it is a Heitage hotel. Every day they used to remind us of the visit & we could go for it on the last day. The lady who explained to us is very knowledgeable & we could take lot of pictures at various heritage spots. It was told to us that the Piano kept in the lobby is played by some body every evening. As we were not in the hotel during that time, we could not experience it. I suggest to go for the heritage tour in the first day itself. Even though the check-out time is 12 pm, they allowed us for late check-out till 4 pm. The check-out also was extremely fast. Since hotel car is very expensive, we opted for "Yellow taxi" to airport & they have arranged the same. While checking out, we forgot our flat key in the electronic locker. One guy (forgot his name) informed us while we were waiting for the taxi & he had promptly arranged the same. This shows their customer commitment. Overall an excellent experience with Lalit & will cherish their hospitality and definitely will come back if we go to Kolkata again. One new wing construction is also going on there & will be ready in future.
Its in the central location of the city, very quiet area. Pretty rooms, good bathroom, great staff services and restaurant. It also has the legacy lounge and tea lounge where you can party and hang out. Outdoor swimming pool and massage centre was a fun time for me and my friends. The bakery shop was an addition to the amazing place. The best hotel to hop in if you are visiting Kolkata. Must visit :)
I stayed there with my family on a trip. We were touring the whole of Kolkata city, and nearby places. It is a really great hotel to stay. All though its front look and entrance was not that good but it had a heritage charm. The rooms, reception, and the restaurant were good and sported an elegant, classy look. The room was spacious and the bed were very comfortable. Good WiFi coverage. The staff were very friendly and professional. The food offered at the restaurant was just yummy, but little expensive. Overall, it was a really a great experience for us to stay there. I will surely be a guest again there, whenever I come to Kolkata again :-)
The hotel is located in the central Kolkata which makes equal distance for maximum places. Great Eastern has good high standard and is among the best hotels in Kolkata. Food is awesome as well as rooms. The service is also good and the staff are well trained. You can have the bakery items in its separate bakery restaurant and also has separate bar too Kolkata as a place to visit does not have much to say. You may like temples Kalighat, Dakshineswar, Bhoothnath, etc. Lots of Pubs, markets and malls. But you will always hate the humid atmosphere.
It was an official trip. There was no delay in check in and checkout. The reception people were very cooperative. The service was on time with friendly and helpful staff. WiFi facility was provided. The room was good with all basic amenities like coffee maker, TV, iron box and geyser in the washroom which was good and functioning. It was a good hotel with comfort stay. The interiors were good with good decorative elevation. The food was not taken from the hotel. The hotel was conveniently located in the main city. There were activities but did not avail that.
