Reviews Summary
This summary was created by AI, based on recent reviews.
Powered by AI
The Oberoi Grand is celebrated for its exceptional service, with guests often commending the attentive and professional staff for their warm hospitality. Nestled amid the city's hustle, the hotel promises a tranquil experience, though some guests suggest the rooms could benefit from a refresh to match the modern amenities that receive high praise, such as the garden and dining options. The hotel's cleanliness is another point of pride, as is its prime location, making it a serene yet convenient choice for travelers. However, opinions on value vary, with some guests feeling the experience doesn't fully justify the cost.

I stayed here last month also . I gave a very good review of your hotel that time you can refer to the same. I mentioned in my last review my next stay in Kolkatta will be in Oberoi Grand only and that has come true . Service of this hotel is still the best in city. Mr Vishwas / Nafisah - front desk again took very good care . Housekeeping of Bhawana and Sagun was to perfection . Tushar , Durgaa kept the excellent service level in Gharana . Mr Himanshu took very good care in 363 along with Murshabir.

Stayed here 4 years ago,just ok now,gone downhill,breakfast service very chaotic,had to wait for table every morning,waiting staff getting order wrong or just completely forgetting to bring back orders. 4 years ago they were very strict about non residents visiting swimming pool,now they let anyone come to the pool ,smoking and taking photos,inappropriate when residents are in swimm wear.

It was fantastic as always — further enhanced by the spectacular service due to Dipti. Her attention to detail and level of care was exceptional. For instance, my wife was cold and she was kind enough to bring her a blanket. She was also able to help us arrange some customized drinks and also arranged for our dessert to be specially ordered and packed so that we could take it back home with us. We look forward to coming back every time we are back in Kolkata.

I've never been let down by an Oberoi hotel and my time at the Oberoi Grand in Kolkata was certainly not an exception. The historic building is wonderful and the level of service from all the staff is superlative. My room was perhaps looking just a little tired but was nonetheless very comfortable and the level of housekeeping is so so high. The gardens, with the beautiful pool, are an oasis in the middle of crazy but amazing Kolkata. All the meals I had were first class. Thank you, Oberoi, for a fabulous stay. I will never stay anywhere else in Kolkata!

The hotel transports its guest to the grand era of Kolkata ! Beautiful architecture, high ceilings , open pool in the courtyard , wooden panelling , large lobby - once you enter the driveway through the hustle and bustle of the traffic and shops , you are in an haven ! Calm , quiet and so clean … Rooms are clean, large and comfortable. Bathroom are well bright , good toilets and showers . There isn’t much of a view unless you look into the courtyard and pool. There are 2 very good restaurants- 360 which is all day dining and breakfast, and Baan Thai - excellent Thai cuisine . Concierge and staff are very helpful , accommodating, polite and professional . The staff take pride in working for the Oberoi grand - the senior staff will share the hotel’s history with you . This is a very nice and grand hotel indeed

This hotel is just amazing. We’ve stayed in a lot of nice hotels around the world but this is a genuinely special place. The service here is another level. From when you sweep in off the street to when you leave, there is an old fashioned courtesy, grace, elegance and style to all of it. Somehow (I’ve no idea how) you’re escorted and checked in to your room on arrival without all the usual messing about with documents, the manager appears somewhere to welcome you personally and say goodbye when you leave, staff quickly know your name and they’re all lovely and charming. You feel truly looked after and actually quite sad to leave. The hotel itself is beautiful, classic, stylish. Relaxing by the pool is from another era and you’re still in the heart of Kolkata, steps away from the centre. Our room was also beautiful, spacious, well equipped but very stylish in a classic way. The manager said they’re updating about a hundred of the rooms in March and I can see that some people could say it’s a bit old fashioned vs a modern deluxe five star, for example the bathrooms are great but aren’t deluxe monsoon shower cubicle type. For me, I don’t care and actually that’s part of its charm but if that matters then sounds like it’s going to be getting even better for you. So love it and would love to return.

Can’t say that I have ever been disappointed coming here, be it for lunch or dinner. The only 5 star restaurant or speciality restaurant in a 5 star hotel to consistently churn out exquisite Thai dishes ! The service is par excellence. Dipti and Indranil served us today evening and even though it was their first time serving us, I dare say, we feel at home ! Absolute attention to detail while taking care of dining guests !
