Hyatt Regency Kolkata
Ranked #11 of 235 Hotels in Kolkata (Calcutta)
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed November 6, 2013

Like any other Hyatt property the building is impressive and imposing. But your arrival may not be acknowledged well. You may not find any hotel staff at entrance except few security staff, who are not trained to smile.
The stay was comfortable and it could have been more enjoyable. People made this difference.
The food and services are found to be at acceptable level.
The room was small but acceptable.

Room Tip: This property is not suitable for people who tries to benchmark.

The stay was pleasant and comfortable. The hotel is a clean and modern place, the rooms were quite spacious and comfortable.

The hotel location is not exactly in the city center, but it wasn't too far from our Regional office so I was okay with that.

The breakfast was quite nice, thoroughly enjoyed the attention to detail.

An impressive drive up to the entrance gives the feeling of arriving somewhere special & you're not disappointed when you step inside.Most of the public areas centre around a huge space in the middle of the hotel with passing clouds projected on the high ceiling, the large window about 8 floors high overlooking a relaxing tropical pool area at the rear, nice touch is a children's play area on real grass.Our room overlooked the pool (ask for this) & was of high quality. There's a choice of 3 restaurants, all very good we thought: the Indian & Italian are very popular with Kolkata folks so book early.
For sight seeing local taxi is half hour into city (outside peak times) costs between £2 & £5
The staff are very well trained, friendly & made us feel very welcome.

My very first word of advice is to always make arrangements with the hotel to have transportation from the airport to the hotel and from the hotel to your destination. Luckily, this was out second stop on our four city business trip and we knew to book this.

We arrived at the Hyatt by 9pm after a long day of training and travel. We were greeted immediately by hotel staff who were most helpful. The staff transported our bags through security and to the front desk.

We quickly moved to check in. The staff was more than polite and helpful. The lobby was beautiful. The staff offered to show us to our rooms, which was most helpful and I encourage travelers to take the staff up on this offer. The entry to the rooms is different than in the United States, if you are used to travel in the United States.

The room was absolutely beautiful and spacious. I was on the 17th floor and do not know if this was a standard room. It was a suite style (office, living room, bedroom, bathroom and dressing area).

The breakfast buffet was gorgeous with many varieties. The staff was most accomodating and offered to bring plates from the buffet to the table, as well as, juice, coffee, tea etc.

The extent of my stay was 9 hours and it was most pleasant.

Room Tip: 17th floor was great, quiet and spacious (1701)

Location is in north side of Kolkata - little away from all happening places [which are mostly in south side]. However, the Hotel is very good - great food and buffet - affordable for a five star quality. Rooms are smaller compared to other high end places - hence little low value for quality.
Feel and vibe of the place is very good.

Room Tip: All rooms are good.

I had a short stay for one night in Hyatt Regency. I have stayed in many similar hotels (india and abroad) and I can safely say this was not up to the standards of a 5 star hotel. Let me first list down the good things about this property. The exterior is beautiful, the ambiance is fantastic, the service is good, the reception staff is very cordial and helpful, the garden and the pool looked fabulous.

Now the drawbacks, which you do not actually associate with a 5 star hotel especially for the amount of money that you pay for food and its services.

- The quality & quantity of food was sub standard to say the least !! To make matters worse, its extremely pricey (though I expect the same in a 5 star).It was easily one of the worst food experiences if compared to any of the other 5 star hotels I have stayed (Windsor Sheraton etc.)

- The TV did not have a DTH connection !!! Can you believe it?? We are now getting DTH connection enabled TVs even in 3 star hotels !!! Thus, inevitably the reception was not good though watchable.

- WiFi access is chargeable !! Again a shocker ! Much lesser hotels are providing WiFi access free (not only in the lobby but also in all the rooms)

- We had only one pair of bathroom slippers for two persons, Unacceptable !!

- I had a complimentary breakfast for my booking. But my flight was early morning, so I had to leave by 4 in the morning. However, there was no intimation by the staff to atleast pack something or give something in lieu of the missed breakfast. Mind you, really good hotels which boast themselves as 5 star do take care of these things.But this point was one of the least of my concerns,anyway.

Overall experience was ok, though I expected much more from a brand like Hyatt.

Dear Sugato11,

thank you for your very detailed review of Hyatt Regency Kolkata. We are happy to learn that you enjoyed the facilities, ambiance and the services provided to you by our reception team.

With regards to your constructive feedback on our food and beverage pricing I have discussed this with our Food and Beverage Director, it would have been great if this feedback would have been shared with the team in the restaurant, we surely can arrange for a bigger portion. Also the HDTV system for the TVs, we are already in the process to upgrade our system and we hope to implement the same by Quarter 1 next year. Please note that our Housekeeping Manager has noted your feedback in the slippers, which should have been two pairs of course if the room is occupied as a double occupancy. Our sincere apologies for this oversight of our team. Furthermore I am surprised to hear that our Front Desk Team did not offer a packed breakfast for your early departure. If we get to know that a customer is checking out before 6.30 am within a lead time of around an hour the Chefs happily arrange for vegetarian or non vegetarian lunchbox as per the preferences.

I hope you could consider giving us another chance to be at your service, please let me know if your travels are bringing you back to Kolkata and please allow me to personally take care about your reservation and ensure that your stay is comfortable.

With warm regards
