This was our first visit back to The Grand since our wedding reception there in January 2003, and also our first visit to Kolkata since our son (now 5) was born. Every other customer-facing organisation in the world, which has a genuine interest in how to delight their customers, should just study the Oberoi Group and learn how they do... More

Without doubt this is the best hotel I have ever stayed at. It has the usual five-star amenities but the service is above and beyond anything I have experienced. The staff members were almost psychic in anticipating requests and were truly friendly and helpful, from cleaners to the general manager. Not only that, but the hotel refrained from the price...

Very pleasant stay for three nights. Breakfast items and variety incomparable. Having stayed in Taj Buckingham Gate in London, UK, this hotels breakfast beats the Taj hands down. Be aware not to use Hotel Taxi service, it charges about 10 times more than one could pay using Uber or Ola; of course the staff was very helpful to call one... More

You always hear about how good the Oberoi is, from family members dropping by for wedding shopping sprees or even from the locals with a glint in their eye - but its hard to fathom all the appreciation till you experience it yourself. The Oberoi is truly magnificent in all its grandeur, everything about it oozes class and sophistication and... More

The foremost five star hotel of Kolkata situated near Victoria memorial and Park Street. It is a palatial building well decorated and maintained and run upto the Oberoi hotel standards. Excellent hospitality and room service. It houses three restaurants serving exclusive Indian and western cuisine. An ultimate place to stay in royal mood

It's hard to put your finger on what makes this hotel so perfect. There may be some things about that aren't - and if you read other reviews you may identify one or two - but the whole is greater than the sum of its parts and there is something about the setting, ambience and staffing of this great place...

We stayed in a lot of Oberoi Hotels in India when we lived there (we left 13 years ago) and always felt they were one of the top hotel chains in the world. They seem to have a knack of combining stunning properties with a friendliness and warmth you can't get anywhere else. So we were somewhat taken aback when,... More
