“Grand Oberoi a great place to stay in the heart of Kolkata City”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 15, 2010

Grand Oberoi a great place to stay in the heart of Kolkata City, its very near to business centers of Kolkata city. Spacious room and a lot of food choices available. The road side rooms gives a beautiful view of the city and the nearby places like sahid minar, the green fields of esplanamde and near by areas.

Can't really review a hotel like this in Calcutta without mentioning the outrageous inequality of it all... but if you can stomach that:

I travel a lot, and generally stay in 4/5 star hotels. This is i think one of the best in the world. BUT not cheap, a meal, massage and luxury tax will soon push the bill.

Having said that, the food was fantastic, the breakfast outstanding, service impeccable. Staff seem happy. Great location. Highly recommended.

We spend a couple of days here and then a couple of days in a cheap place. Good to get the contrast.

The very highest standards in all respects, and the most wonderful base from which to tour this amazing city. The staff seem to anticipate your needs and often seem three thought steps ahead of you; the rooms are well-appointed and luxurious; the food excellent and the pool area absolutely essential in the summer humidity!

We have stayed here for two night three days, it was a real pleasure. The grand oberoi is the ultimate property with great reception and lobby. The rooms are really very lavish. The food are of high class, the room service was great and really very fast. The hotel is located at the heart of the city. The hotel has airport pickup and drop service.The pool side view is of high quality.
