Put up at Sonnet on a long-term assignment in Kolkata. Refreshing break from large corporate hotels. Close to local amenities (City Centre I Salt Lake) and attentive, personalized service. Breakfast buffet and room service menu is varied and of good quality. Rooms and beds are comfortable. Service can be inconsistent at times, but always helpful. Gym is small but well... More

The hotel was very clean and the staff were superb from the moment I arrived and couldn't do enough to help you.

Been there for a business trip this october. Everything was good. Hospitality is top notch, etc.. Things to improve: House Keeping response is slow Wi-Fi is so slow despite complaining to staffs. Otherwise 4.5/5.

I have been visiting this place for the last few years. I see that service is dropping consistently. Rooms are good and breakfast was "Okay". But, remotes were not working. A/C had only two functions on & off - temperature control was not functioning either. Its just value for money and some good places near by (citi center mall, pure... More

I was at the hotel to attend a conference, Rooms were spacious. Good bed and quality sleep was very good. Breakfast and dinner spreads were excellent. Location & accessibility are excellent. GYM facility is very basic. Staff needs lots of training, most of them are not aware of where the conference is happening. Restaurant is very small.

Was on a long business trip - didn't approve BTC. Room is very small. Not soundproof at all, and adjacent building under construction - you won't get sleep. Absolutely no benefits - at least need to provide a fruit platter if you call yourself 4 star. Very expensive. Swimming pool is a swamp.

Service and rooms are very good. Cleanliness at its best. Service is also good. However one must mention is its food...it is indeed amazing. I tried Sonnet lunch and dinner quite sometime before and always liked its food quality. But last time when I stayed overnight just loved its breakfast. Those who are coming from outside for them staying at... More
