Taj Bengal5.0 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
At a stone's throw from the iconic National Library and opposite the famous Kolkata zoological gardens, this property of the Taj group charms you with its ornate architecture and grandeur. Unlike some of the other more famous cousins, this hotel is less impressive from the outside but more than makes up from what it offers inside. The white facade and the gorgeous chandeliers instantly promise you a royal treat. The room service is typically efficient and superb as you can expect in a Taj property. The three restaurants are top notch. Suggest you try the Sonargaon for its Indian fare. The mutton raan and the lobster tikka will instantly transport you to the days when opulence and affordability was the privilege of a chosen few. Awesome !!!!!
Enjoyed our stay at the Taj. I had been there earlier for restaurants, but this is my first time to have stayed there. They gave us one of their newly appointed suites # 403. Very nicely done room and bathroom. The bed was quite comfortable and everything was spic & span. The staff of the hotel deserve warm kudos for their service, cooperation, and friendliness
stayed here for a night and like every Taj hotel, it matched my expectations. this was a business trip so was given early check in as requested, room was spic and span and view was good. slept well too, so proven great for business trips. the pool was also good and given the weather in calcutta, it was refreshing. buffet breakfats was absolutely yum and one of teh best have had! with alu dum, egg curry, kachori and other bengali fare in addition to normal taj stuff. staff was very cordial.
If you want to experience the most comfortable stay, choose Taj Bengal. Located in the heart of the City, this hotel is luxury personified. The breakfast spread was lavish, rooms very comfortable and has all amenities one would need. The staff is full of warmth and hospitable. You just can not have a better hotel than this in Kolkatta.
We visited the Taj Bengal early November this year and our 7 day stay was exceptional. The breakfast and service at the chambers was friendly and they offered an ok variety of options. Our only issue was how cold it was. We would ask the staff to lower it every time we came is as if felt like we were in a refrigerator. The staff was very kind and accommodated our request every time. The concierges Sanjib and David made our stay extra special. Sanjib was able to locate a few items(for my art projects) that were not ordinary tourist items. Our last evening we were given a special welcome thank you gifts and a delicious chocolate cake. Thank you for such special moment!!! Over all the location and service of the hotel staff was exceptional. It made our days in Kolkata much more pleasant. Highly recommended hotel!!
my wife and i are, not to say the least, attracted towards the service Taj provides, hence our stay at the Taj Bengal for 16 nights on our visit to calcutta the club room was comfortable and to our glee we had chocolates and cakes waiting for us every night not to mention the welcome bottle of wine the airport pick up as usual was very welcoming (the driver); the vehicle had wet towels, chilled bottle water, wifi we were welcomed at the hotel by Bimal, the concierge, who guided us to our room all the 3 concierges (David, Sanjib, and Bimal) were just wonderful and made our stay worth the while; they were very very helpful, always smiling, asking if they could assist, and could arrange stuffs you would think are impossible; 10 on 10 to all three of them (huh, it rhymes) the breakfast was not bad, but my wife and i prefer the one at the Sea Lounge, Taj Palace, bombay we had breakfast at Chambers once and the people there very welcoming and the other 16 mornings we went to ground floor for breakfast every morning at breakfast chef Shreya was always offering us and all present there the freshly baked croissants with a smile and was missed twice (her days off 😞) bishnu at breakfast was very helpful yet two incidents at breakfast were rather insulting (don’t want to mention the name, he was wearing a black tunic, senior than the waiters, and very rude, quite an attitude, unlike the Taj experience) and not to mention that it is not a good idea to order poached eggs as i waited 20 minutes and went to the chef several times (monday nov 20) Rajesh and the room service guys were indeed very smily (Taj way), greeting when ever we met, and helpful indeed the Cal27 staff are just wonderful; specially Nabin and Kabir, the barman, who made me have a few shots more of the single malt the bar, Junction, is a great place to have a few drinks and the staff wonderful again (very Taj) and please don’t miss the cutting chai and jhalmoodi in the lobby, which is complimentary, and is on from 5 till 6 overall i give 4.80 stars
This is the place to be. It fulfills everything one would demand .it certainly lives up to your expectations.we had a great time here .thanks to everyone will come back again .amazing hospitality indeed
We stayed at the Taj Bengal two years ago and decided to return because the experience had been so fantastic. We weren't disappointed - the hotel is still absolutely excellent in every way. We have stayed at so many hotels but none of them can rival the Taj Bengal for its wonderful service. The hotel itself is very nice and has every amenity including four restaurants, a pool etc. Our fifth floor room was extremely comfortable and of course spotless. But the staff are what sets this hotel apart. Their warmth friendliness and attention to detail make guests feel immediately at home and very welcome. Everyone with whom we came in contact was so pleasant and did everything they could to make our stay comfortable and memorable. I must mention a few in particular - the wonderful concierges David, Bimal and Sanjib, excellent butlers Sagnik and Kalyan, front of house staff Debojyoti who saved the day when our train was late and Ravinder at reception, Vijay the restaurant manager and of course Rajesh and Ramnaresh who looked after our room so beautifully. But really, everyone deserves a mention. And did I mention the food? Fantastic!!
Visited the new Cal 27 launched 2 weeks ago.Decent food,Average service.Dining in a 5 star with above average prices expectations were not met.Will certainly not rush back.Seema was commendable and showed empathy when there was an issue.All the very best!!
The above and beyond service we received at this hotel was second to none. The restaurants, amenities and most of all the exceptional staff were outstanding. The service we received from Vitthal in the Chambers restaurant was impeccable. I've never felt so welcome anywhere! In addition, Jasvinder assisted me personally and I honestly could not thank him enough. If we ever find ourselves in Kolkata again I can guarantee we will be staying at the Taj Bengal. Thank you!
