After having experienced ITC Grand Chola in Chennai, I had great expectations from ITC Sonar as well. However, on reaching the hotel from the airport I was surprised as the location and the outside appearance of the hotel did not give the impression that this was a luxury hotel. On entering the hotel all that changed very quickly. As we... More

I have been forced to say at the ITC Sonar due to obligation, but after three visits this is the last. Yes the staff is nice (categorically all Indian hotel staff is nice) and the hotel is clean enough. For the people who think this is a luxury property...it takes all kinds. Being an American, one thing you will notice... More

Recently while visiting Kolkata on a business trip i stayed in ITC Sonar between 11-Aug-2014 and 15-Aug-2014. This is one of rare the Hotels i have stayed having such beautiful and green landscape. It was a great experience to stay in a hotel with green landscape surrounding the hotel. The hotel, the landscape, the room, the staff, the Darjeeling lounge….they... More

As the name denotes, it truly is. Staff is courteous to great extents. smooth check-in, lobby sparkling clean, lifts well maintained, rooms kept real tidy and the best ITC signature luxury that they say is responsible. Full points to the sleep tray too. In room dining was prompt, and so was the clearing as promised. Good ambiance overall. One glitch... More

I love staying in this hotel. The ambience is wonderful, the food is awesome and excellent customer service. I particularly liked the service at the breakfast Buffett. The choice of cuisine available is great and room service is quite fast.

Pros 1. Excellent ambience 2. Outstanding service 3. The ground floor is surrounded by a lily pond, which gives a cooling effect from the sultry heat 3. Close to Science City if you are going for a seminar (walking distance, but make sure the subway is open since it seems quite dangerous to cross the busy main road) 4. Good... More

I had a convention to attend at the ITC and was offered few options to stay in Calcutta by the organizers but I chose the ITC since I had seen positive reviews and some great pictures on the TripAdvisor site. And I was not disappointed at all. They have the most wonderful staff that go out of their way to... More

The ITC Sonar remains my most favourite Hotel in India. Every stay here is a pleasurable experience. Not only are the facilities the most elegant in the city, the hospitality is awesome and in the best Indian tradition... ITC Properties stand out for their culinary excellence and the Sonar probably outshines them all. This time we had the traditional Smoked... More
