What We Love

  • Palpable sense of history; this is where prime ministers and viceroys sat and had tea
  • Oberoi’s famously attentive service
  • A central location, within walking distance of the stock exchange and the Indian Museum
  • A lovely outdoor pool
  • One of the best restaurants in all of India

What To Know

  • The building is over 125 years old — when the guest in the room above yours flushes, you might hear it
  • The population density in this area of Kolkata can be overwhelming (but the hotel offers an oasis)
  • In-room carpeting feels a bit tired
  • WiFi costs $20 per day
  • Last renovation was in 2007

From the moment we were met at the airport we knew we had made the right choice. This truly is an exceptional hotel and one that is a total delight. Our recent 5 night stay was made so enjoyable by staff that spoilt us at every opportunity. To start the day with the Oberoi breakfast has to be one of the highlights. We were pampered by the terrific staff who were so efficient and friendly that you were made to few very special. Everyone from the housekeeping staff through to the front office are to be commended on their warmth, efficiency and charm. Management are to be congratulated on such a wonderful establishment. We can’t wait to return. Thank you

Cool Elegant Reception
Reviewed 3 days ago

After being greeted, on a hot and humid day, we were given a comforting towel for our hands and a cool drink. The lobby was spacious and elegant. After check-in formalities were complete we were taken to our room. They have a nice tipping concept here that we experienced in other Indian hotels in that you leave a gratuity in an envelope when you depart. A gracious thing to do.
Rooms were clean and comfortable. Bathrooms a bit small. It was a classic. Service always excellent. Choose a room with a view of the pool.

Peaceful hotel with excellent staff
Reviewed 3 days ago

Stayed in the hotel for 4 nights . Unmatched hospitality which is Oberoi group biggest USP. A vintage hotel in middle of a bustling market,but the moment you step inside you will enter in a peaceful area where you will be greeted with a smile.lovely pool area and a good gym . Room sizes are generous and comfortable but surely they do need upgradation. I understand vintage look but in today's time room TV doesn't show HD channels then it's a dampner. Bathrooms are nice with A grade toiletries. Staff is excellent and that's the USP of Oberoi hotels across India. A personal touch to everything makes you feel special. Overall if they renovate the rooms and add few more things staying experience will be very nice.
