This property is a welcome haven of peace from the very busy road and market area of this part of Kolkata. The greeting was the courteous and graceful experience that you associate with the name "Oberoi'. Its a beautiful Colonial building with a central courtyard pool area where food and beverage service is available. Rooms were comfortable and well equipped.... More

Yes, this hotel is traditional but it has a proud and gracious history behind it, great public areas nice pool and excellent restaurant. Ordered a luxury suite and was upgraded to junior suite loved the writing desk in my room nice heritage touch, lovely spacious room, and exceptional dedication to customer service. Went over and above what was necessary.
