I've stayed at The Sonnet on 3 different business trips now and will stay there again during future visits. It's a good place to stay if you're in the East of Kolkata for business or pleasure. It's within an easy walk from the City Centre Mall. The staff is helpful and friendly. The breakfast buffet could be better, but is... More

I have stayed in this hotel in October 2014 and now in Jan 2015. This hotel is ideally suited for business travellers having work with Govt. Offices and other major corporates in and around Salt Lake Area. Their front office is well equipped and trained to address your requirements when you check-in. Their restaurants and food are good. More important,... More

We organised a reception and a one night stay at The Sonnet. Not only was the reception handled flawlessly, the behaviour of the staff, the quality of the food and the cooperation extended is also impressive. We had a shortage of manpower but the hotel staff handled the entire function beautifully. Everything went of well, no hassles!

1. 11th Nov : Check-In at around 10 pm (R.no. 510): Being a corporate customer, none of the hotels in the country ask for full payment during check in process. They just take credit card /debit card details etc or sometime nothing. However, your hotel insisted for the full payment. It's not called for but even after our request, your... More

I second the reviewer that the walls are too thin. I wear ear plugs and usually sleep like a rock and I kept getting woken up even though I was in one of the club suites on the third floor. The breakfast buffet was not really up to snuff and I ate dinner here once and the food was awful... More
