On my way to Bhutan for my Honeymoon, I chose The Lalit Great Eastern Kolkata for Transit Stay and the moment I entered; this legendary Hotel exceeded my Expectations. From an Early Check-In, to an upgraded Room and a sweet surprise of a Complimentary Pastry & a Bouquet of Flowers; it all made my stay quite amazing. Ms. Soma at the Reception was very sweet and welcoming and I’d like to end my review by saying that it’s a shame I only got to stay here for a night but I’ll be back soon for a longer stay and try to experience a lot more in this Vibrant City.

My experience with Lalit is not so luxurious in any of their properties but this is not applicable in kolkata. Based on reviews I decided to book this one and i was simply pleased. I was initially angry as the front manager who assisted me asked to pay for early check in or wait for 2hours. i chose to wait but then I suppose their duty was changed and I again requested the other front desk manager, she asked me to wait for a while and requested me to fresh n up meanwhile and also offered tea/coffee which completely changed my perception of this property from a typical Lalit hotel to an exceptional hotel.
Pros:
Rooms are large with good space
Location is main Kolkata (near to bada bazar,etc.)
Staff is exceptionally good
Service is also very good (especially follow up)
Restaurant food(dinner) is very good but staff and service makes it more loveable.

Cons:
Early check in a real hassle here.
Front desk still needs to be trained.
Breakfast is at a restaurant next to hotel which was strange.

All in all a good experience, a must stay, especially due to the services I have experienced here are experienced only in Oberoi properties.

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Asia's first luxury hotel, The Lalit Great Eastern is a heritage landmark located in the main business and shopping district of Kolkata. Restored and renovated over a period of seven years, the hotel holds the distinction of being the longest continuously operating hotel for 165 years. Built in 1841 as Auckland Hotel, it has been referred to as the 'Jewel of the East' and the 'Best Hotel East of the Suez'. Over the years, the hotel has been the favourite haunt of royalty and celebrities from across the world. The Lalit Great Eastern, now restored to its original glory, is an amalgamation of the styles of 3 different eras of history - Victorian, Edwardian and Contemporary, reflected in Heritage Block 1, Heritage Block 2 and the New Block respectively. The original Heritage Block radiates the charm of the British Colonial Era, while the Modern Block incorporates a contemporary look and feel. These blocks have been seamlessly connected despite their distinct character and decor. ... more   less
