About The Lalit Great Eastern Kolkata

Grace and elegance define this landmark heritage hotel. Originally built in 1841, The Lalit Great Eastern Kolkata boasts three distinct eras in its architecture: Victorian and Edwardian in the original blocks, and contemporary in the new block.

Luxurious designs blend perfectly with the charm and character of the spacious rooms and suites. Modern finishes include parquet floors in the new block, and timelessly restored furniture and bay windows in the older blocks.

Guests may never leave with the array of amenities on offer: private luxury air charter services, personal butler, and spa and wellness centre, to mention but a few. An outdoor pool and fully-fitted gym provide the opportunity to relax or workout.

Endless dining options include finger food and steaks at The Legacy Grill, cuisine from around the world at Alfresco, and tea and cake in The Tea Lounge. Wilson's provides after-dinner drinks.

The world-famous Eden Gardens is within two kilometres of The Lalit Great Eastern Kolkata, and shopping at New Market is about one kilometre away.

A breakfast to remember

The breakfast buffet spread is considered to be absolutely mouthwatering. The choices are endless, and guests also find the service to be outstanding. Whether it's waffles and whipped cream or fresh fruits and muesli, guests are sorted for the better half of the day.

Luxury, charm and character

They also love the ambience and Colonial finesse that comes alive, right from the lobby to every corner of the hotel.

Negative Reviews

Those extra charges

Travellers believe that for a hotel of such a high standard, amenities such as Wi-Fi and bottled water should be included in the stay. They are not pleased with having to pay such a high price for what they consider to be necessities.
