ITC Sonar, Kolkata is an average hotel. I did not get my prefered hotel so, stayed at this hotel. Hotel is overpriced .

Rooms are small (for suite category too) Service quality is Average. Hotel Staff is ok. Pool is not big enough. Restaurants options are less but are fine.Spa is expensive.

Overall I would say this is probably a medicore hotel, not for Business Tycoons / Travellers at all.

Chose the ITC Sonar because it was a part of the Luxury Collection of the Sheraton. Unfortunately, the Standard rooms were a disaster after coming from the Luxury collection hotel Laguna in Bali. Definitely, the hotel does not rate a place in the Luxury collection. The standard rooms were terrible so much so that we wanted to change hotels at midnight. However, the excellent attention from the hotel staff changed our thinking. We were upgraded to a beautiful room which even had a massage chair. The Manager was most attentive.The breakfast was the best I had ever had in any luxury hotel. The service and attention impeccable

I think it is misleading when they give rates for their different category rooms. As a travel manager of 30 years standing, even I was misled It is important to chose right category as the differences are indeed amazing

Obviously a business hotel judging by the decor. We were forced to spend the first night of our holiday here due to protests in the city centre that prevented us from reaching our previously booked hotel. Hot and tired after a long journey and two hours stuck in traffic, the comfort and luxury of this 5 star hotel was welcome. The price was not. Very expensive but we were past caring at that point. There is a reasonably priced restaurant inside the hotel offering a fixed price buffet and a wide selection of food on offer for breakfast. In the end it was worth treating ourselves for the night. It's also not that far from the airport so is a good choice for catching your flight if you're feeling rich.

Kolkata's not the nicest place in India to vist, but if you have to travel there for business, ITC makes it that little bit easier. The room and facilities are awesome. If you need a view ask for a room facing into the grounds as the surrounding areas aren't the nicest to look at. Staff are facilitating to the point of embarrasment (one guy followed me the length of the grounds just so he could open the door for me into the foyer).
There are 5 restuarants and a bar which means you don't have to travel out of the hotel in the evening if you don't want to. They are a bit pricy for food though (thank goodness work is paying). Cleaning and Ironing are also pricy. Rooms are relatvily cheap (for a 5 star hotel) I guess due to the fact it's not near the centre of town, but it's only a short 10 min trip down the road to Salt Lake, where most of the business district resides.
If you are forced to go to Kolkata - this is the place to stay.
