An oasis in the midst of a sea of humanity. That is what the Grand Old Lady of Kolkata or The Oberoi Grand is all about. Our stay at the Oberoi Grand Kolkata from August 14-18, 2014 was memorable. If there is one word to describe the stay, it was FANTASTIC. We have stayed in hotels around the world, but... More

A fabulous hotel, possibly my favourite hotel in all of Asia. It's a pain to get to from the airport, but it's really worth the trip. I've just finished my third visit to the Grand, and I can't wait to return. Levels of service are truly outstanding, and the way they've kept the original fixtures and fittings are an absolute...

Despite the distance from the airport, it is definitely the best hotel you can stay in Kolkata. It could be a little difficult to find the hotel if the cab driver doesn't know the location of hotel. But you can request a pickup service at a reasonable price and an attendant will be waiting for you at the airport. The... More

The Oberoi Grand is a beautiful hotel right in the middle of all of Kolkata's hustle and bustle. It's a quiet spot though.The British era decorations and furniture are simply gorgeous! The food is delicious. The staff couldn't be better and they make sure that everything in the room has a personal touch. I love this about the Oberoi hotels!... More

The moment you walk in you know you are in a very unique hotel. My family was overwhelmed by the love and care the staff gave us-so much so that my grand-children kept asking when we can go back to the Grand Hotel, Kolkata.

This was the nicest hotel that we stayed at in all of India. The rooms, pool, food, staff and drivers were all top notch. If you are going to Kolkata, do yourself a favour: Pay a little more and stay here. It is an oasis within the city. Tip: there are lots of vendors/markets nearby this hotel, which can make... More
