exceptional in every way

Congrats to the Taj Bengal for creating an oasis in the amiable chaos of India. Throughout my stay, staff in every service area demonstrated a sincere wish to do whatever was in their power to make my stay pleasant and hassle free. The room was spotlessly clean. The spa was terrific. But the most outstanding aspects were the food and service in both the Indian and Lebanese restaurants: the chefs are to be congratulated for providing taste sensations beyond anything I've experienced anywhere else in 35+ countries.

My trip to the city of joy - Kolkata

Dont know if the city was the city of Joy, but the hotel sure was. I booked a twin bed, got a free upgrade to a suite. When we entered, they received us with full enthusiasm, garlands and all. Our room was great, enjoyed the comfort. The food was delicious at the "souk" restaurant. During our stay, everyone was kind and receptive. No refusals for any of our request. Wish the hotel had better grounds, felt it was small. But I think the high heat outside, didn't let me explore too much. The food in the morning was above average, not great, but okay. Overall great experience at the hotel. Oh by the way, they provided us a free transport from the airport (only one way). We both were happy. Thank you to our receptionist who welcomed us. You did a great job meeting our needs. The total cost was a little higher than I had expected. Around 20%.

Shopping tip: Short drive from hotel

You are not going to walk out of this hotel and have dining and shopping at your doorstep. It is easy to catch a cab however and head to the "action" about 10 minutes away. A cab cost less than 2 USD- so no worries.

Although all restaurants were great, I particularly enjoyed Sonargaon, where they serve an elaborate fare of traditional Bengali dishes along with authentic delights from northwest India.

Excellent experience at Taj Bengal

I was vacationing in Kolkata and stayed at the Taj Bengal for 3 nights. The staff really made me feel welcome and special and took care of all my needs with an urgency not seen in other hotels. The staff were always polite and courteous, always at my beck and call, willing to do anything to make my stay comfortable. Rooms were spacious and clean, with a turn down every evening. I will unreseverdy recommend this hotel to everyone!! I am coming back.
