Was at Oberoi Grand for a short stay. I was pleasantly surprised to see such a calm and quite hotel environment right in the middle of the city. If you just come out the hotel gate you will really experience the crowd and traffic of Kolkata :-) Courteous, welcoming and smiling staff, and excellent service. From check in until check... More

As compared to other Oberoi properties of other places, this hotel is much behind, rooms facing the main road doesn't function, rooms are big but arranged with old furnitures, stayed for just one night so couldn't use many of their facilities.

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...
