The hotel is good and I would say even value for my money considering we are regular loyalists of the Saraovar group of hotels. However I would not say this is peerless.
The rooms were more or less as per our expectations. Food in general again was as per our expectations which does not mean it was very good.
However their restaurant specializing in Bengali food was exceptional. I believe we were treated to genuine and authentic Bengali cuisine here along with genuine and authentic Bengali hospitality and tradition. The waiters in that restaurant were exceptionally good and helpful and efficient. Unfortunately they do not wear ID tags and so it is not possible to record their names here or in the hotel feedback forms to appreciate their services.
In contrast all the waiters in the Oceanic appeared to be trainees under one or may be two senior waiters. Many were obviously confused and under stress to perform while others just about looked busy without doing much.
One could easily identify the senior staff who were obviously authoritative and did give a helping hand when crowd swelled up near the buffet pots.
In some of the TA reviews some one had mentioned the front desk staff as rather stiff and in efficient. There could be some truth in this because they took a long time for both check in and check out.
Kolkata is paradise for food lovers and so it is a good idea to stay in this but eat outside whenever possible.
