The service and the check-in was hassle free. Really liked the food. The city is great and our family keeps coming here for the stay every time we are in the city. The chicken biryani was great with nice flavours

I have been travelling India for one month. I finished my trip with a few nights at The Lalit Great Eastern Kolkata.
The staff here have been very helpful. The food in the restaurant was of high quality and lots to choose from.
India is an incredible country with lots to see and do, if you are considering a trip I highly recommend giving it a go.

This is the precise reason that this isn't my first visit and this isn't my last visit to the Asia's first luxury hotel.The lalit great eastern for the following--
You are greeted with a hand folded "Namashkar" which resonates from within from each of the family of Lalit and here is the beginning of the "athiti-devo-bhavo"
1.You are escorted,looked after and attended 24x7x365
2.Your request is heard,attended,executed which would defy the spend of light
3.The "Alfresco" is an appetite delight Needless to say the guides steward and captain are there to explain the exquisite spread which is piping hot and laid out in the most precise chronological order.
4.Do spare a minute to have a word with the chef Rajput and chef chatterjee they are the curators of the delicacies which would evoke your taste buds
5.captain sushonto,guddo,stewards saurabh disha are the few to mention, as the list goes endless who serve you the passion
6.The room makers needs a special mention Tathagatho and Deepak they are omnipresent they are always there to attend any of your teething issues.
7. A great initiative by the "Lalit" a contribution towards environmental protection on the principle of reduce and reuse which gives you an option of reuse of lenin and towels. Kuddos to the initiative.
8. The front office personnel Rahul, Dipu, Tatha, Priyanka Jaiswal, Priyanka Gosh, Buddhadeb, Sayni, Saif, Trainee Ajaz Khan and the entire team spells a benchmark in hospitality called as " Personal touch" It speaks of volumes of grooming and training received by each one of them.Over and above the Guest relation Executives such as Ms Mahima Mehta, Ms Anita ensures you are looked after.
9. The ambience, decor, and the positivity which brews in the atmosphere brightens you up.The security system is commendable which ensures your security and safety.
10. Despite having penned down a heartfelt which is full of words I am at loss of words but sure enough if " Kolkatta is City of joy" then "The Lalit Great Eastern is a Place of joy" to stay put if you are in Kolkatta.

Lovely heritage hotel and great location - works going on when I stayed so ask for a quiet room if you're sensitive to noise.

Staff who made an impression - Dipu from concierge, Aghosh from Front Office, and the manager/supervisor of Wilson's - such a colourful personality.

Thanks!
