A MUST VISIT of Kolkata: . So I have been to almost each & every top hotels of Kolkata in last few weeks. Some of them gave me some unexpected awful experiences, which was definitely not expected from the so called famous brands. But the experience we had in Oberoi Grand Kolkata was something that can not be described in words. . The Oberoi Grand Kolkata is a huge and grand property situated at Esplanade, in the heart of the city . It was established in the British era and reflects the heritage of Bengal so well. . Now comes their hospitality. Starting from their warmest welcome to greetings in their restaurants, from the hotel mananger to their chefs and housekeeping each and every staffs were so warm. Every time they interacted with us they made sure that the greetings been so lively and we felt like home. In restaurant there was always someone to watch if we were having some discomfort or not during dining. . There were some subtle yet impressive things occurred that I would like to share. I was trying some Thai dishes in my dinner. While having the soup, I was continuously wiping my lips after every sip with the towel covering the cutlery sets. And they instantly provided me a box of tissue papers so that it would had been easier to me. Here is some another incident touched my heart. Before going out for shopping I instructed them to clean up my room. My own facewash was on the bed and that had quite good quantity , but after coming back I found a note for me. The person was kind enough to provide me a new facewash of same company as he has noticed mine was about to finish. . Now comes their presentation of in room dining. That was absolutely much impressive . And the foods were really lip smacking. The Thai dishes as well as the indian dishes were too good in taste. . Most importantly they are maintaining their standard service amidst this pandemic also. And unlike other hotels they are maintaining their pool as well. (Though the pool is not for the use as of now.) . The ambiance is so soothing in spite of being situated admidst new market area. . So I couldn’t resist myself from revisiting the place & enjoy some more days in their soothing atmosphere.

This luxury hotel is in the middle of the city chaos but once you enter the hotel, it is an oasis. Our family of 4 stayed here with another family (different rooms) for two nights. While we found the Oberoi Hotels in Delhi and Jaipur better (they were a 10/10 whereas i would rate this an 8/10), this hotel is still great. The price is also significantly lower than the other Oberoi Hotels that we stayed at; on a value basis, this hotel is a 10/10. The buffet meals were very good; great selection and very high quality. Staff was attentive and professional. Tip: if you arrange a car from the hotel, it is MUCH more expensive (say 5x-10x). So we ended up using Uber. Having said that, the Uber drivers are crazy and their cars are tiny (although we were able to cram our family of 4 with our luggage into an Uber car). Interestingly, all the Uber cars seem to be the same old, small cars. And get ready for the drive of your life...

This is, quite simply, the best hotel we've ever stayed in (and we've been lucky enough to stay in a number of 5 star hotels around the world). The staff (Rudolph, Peter, Neilish, Shakir, Mostaque and everyone else) are the most genuinely kind and attentive staff we've met, and you can tell they work as a real team under excellent management. We have forgotten the name of the member of the housekeeping team that assisted us on our final day (around 2pm on 14 March - room 474), but he was lovely too. For example, one evening Rudolph noticed I was having a 'alcohol free day' and brought over a complimentary mocktail. Another morning, a particular yoghurt arrived at our breakfast table - Rudolph had noticed the previous morning that I liked that sort of yoghurt. Mostaque also noticed we wore reading glasses and dropped off some glasses cases to our room. There are so many other small touches - eg free sorbets by the pool, an assortment of homemade biscuits with any coffee/tea order, a farewell cake on the day we left! Everyone on the team is also constantly checking whether you are enjoying your stay. We are just crossing our fingers that no one is affected by the downturn in tourism given current world events - each of these staff members is worth their weight in gold and would be an asset to any business! The hotel itself is beautifully appointed and the food selection (we tried breakfast and dinner) was exquisite. We can't wait to come back.

Do not miss The Oberoi Grand! An oasis of quiet leisure in a yet very busy (markets all over the place!) neighbourhood and the highest quality of service I ever witnessed. Impeccable from check in to check out, from whisky to icecube, from breakfast to dinner, from starter to desert, from housekeeping to hotelcar-service, from swimming pool to shower. Great room. Kolonial Grandeur in an up to date-setting. Dear Staff and Management: I make a bow to you all. You perform to almost impossible levels!
