Dear our valued reviewer,

Warm Greetings from ITC Sonar, Kolkata!

Thank you for the lovely feedback. For the convenience our guests, we are located 20 minutes from the heart of the city and the airport, which keeps our guests away from the hustle and bustle yet connected to the city. Sonar is ITC-Welcomgroup’s getaway in the east, this is where traditional values and a modern format come together in a seamless amalgamation of visually pleasing design. Planned as India’s very first business resort, it captures the essence of Kolkata through its greenery and water gardens, full of floating water lilies.

On behalf of the Sonar family, we look forward to welcoming you back to our warmth and indigenous hospitality in the near future

Warmest regards

Hotel Management

Dear our valued reviewer,

Warm Greetings from ITC Sonar, Kolkata!

Thank you for the appreciative note. The décor of the hotel offers an uncluttered minimalist style, totally eastern in concept. Large stone sculptures and carved friezes, reminiscent of the ancient Pala Dynasty of Bengal are strategically located in the lobby and reception area. The local reverence for the culinary arts is seen through its six premium restaurants. ITC Sonar has a range of superb banqueting areas that offer facilities second to none in the city. The state of the art business center caters to the needs of global business travelers, for whom this is a favoured location for board meetings and conferences.

We look forward to welcoming you back to Sonar, your home in Kolkata.

Warmest regards

It is a very good hotel. It doesn't make you feel that you are staying in Kolkatta. As you are aware, Kolkatta is a busy and a little dirty city, keeping that in mind, ITC Sonar Bangla gives a great experience.

The stay at the Hotel was boooked by on of our suppliers from Italy for thier first Indian Convention. At first instance the ambienc of the hotel was quite impressive with Indian Diyas and flowers motifs all around the place. The rooms were very comfortable and the food was excellent.
I never felt any lackness in service. there were Staff and people all around to help you out.

Great.

Dear our valued reviewer,

Warm Greetings from ITC Sonar, Kolkata!

Thank you for your kind words. We appreciate your feedback and the same have already been shared with our team. We at ITC Sonar are committed to providing you world class facilities backed by courteous and efficient services.
ITC Welcomgroup’s ethos of reflecting “rooted in soil“yet dynamic in form and philosophy is woven into the décor of the hotel. It draws inspiration from the Pala dynasty, an empire which united Bengal and promoted art and culture. The story behind Sonar is very compelling – Bengal is the inspiration & Sonar is ITC’s tribute to the City of Joy.

On behalf of the Sonar family, we look forward to welcoming you back to our warmth and indigenous hospitality in the near future

Beautiful hotel with well equipped large size rooms. This is a 5 star hotel and nice oasis in a old, chaotic, dusty, and polluted city. Coffee shop offers both Indian and Western food. Restaurants on premise are great but expensive. Couple observations:
1. Great and very helpful staff.
2. Check out processing time is very long (typical of Starwood hotels.)
3. No alarm clock in room but great work table to do business work.
4. No shaving kit provided to guest but has everything else (strange omission.)
5. Great shower.
6. Drinks at bar can be very expensive.
7. Ample security on premise as you need key to access all points. This is reassuring.

In the month of October I stayed one night at ITC Sonar . I had made the booking and the check in was handled in themost efficient and mature manner. I was also given an up grade to ITC select one room. The room aws very comfortable and had everything one needs ona business trip. Even a Fax machine is also available in the room . The working is peaceful and when I got tired i pull down the window drapes and the sheer view of water pol with floting flowers freshened me up removed all the mental tireness. After working late, I wanted to order in the room service and my requirement was some thing light without oil. As i donot take chicken or mutton the chef recommended fish curry with plain rice and one phulka and some sugar free traditiona sweet. It was one of the best meals I have had in many many months. the rooms are extremely comfortable and you have a choice of pillows for the best sleep. It was over all an exceptional experience and I think only ITC can provide it.
