Good hotel with outstanding rooms service

Posted 16 Dec, 2015

I stayed in this hotel in the mid of October with my family. Its was very good experience for me to stay in this hotel. All the member of this hotel is very friendly to talk with us and giving every advice which we needs. Room service was outstanding and foods and beverages was good. Both meal are available veg and non veg so you don't need to worry about this. It is located in the mid of Kolkata and very close to Howrah Railway station and airport is half an hour far from the hotel. Chandni Metro Station is very close to hotel so its the advantage to connect the entire Kolkata easily. If you are planning to stay in Kolkata with family then don't think any other place because it's very good place to enjoy with your family and easy to connect with marketing areas.

Excellent experience; well-maintained rooms

Posted 11 Jan, 2015

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.

Booking service was perfect. Food was delicious there.Continental and other varieties were very tasty. Complimentary breakfast was given. Staff services were excellent. Rooms were spacious and well maintained. TV, AC, coffee maker, everything were available in the room. Swimming pool, gym, game, etc were available. I went there alone in the month of December 2013. I will recommend this hotel to my friends and other tourists. Kolkata is a fabulous place as tourist destination.
