I cannot speak highly enough of the concierge service at the Taj Bengal, in particular David Aaron, the chief concierge. David went above and beyond the call of duty to help me locate a piece of luggage that had arrived late on a connecting flight in Mumbai. He was extremely persistent with the airline, calling them more than 40 times... More

The is one of the grand Taj Hotels and stood up to its pedigree in every way. We had stayed in Aug 2013 and had booked one of the club rooms for 2 nights. The entrance of the hotel and the main lobby are one of the grandest I have seen in India. Check-in was easy and we were escorted... More

My first experience with the Taj Group, I must say it didn't let me down. It's a bit old hotel and has its own charm. Location is a bit Isolated unlike the Park, Oberoi etc. The Lobby is imposing as is the hotel. Staff members very courteous and smiling. Rooms good & Clean. Getting a Taxi on your own from... More

For three days,during my recent stay at The Taj Bengal Kolkatta, I went back to the glory days of Indian 5 Stars , when gracious hospitality and anticipating and caring for every need was the mantra in every 5 star hotel,and warmth had not been sacrificied in the guise of automation and businesslike efficiency. From the warm welcome to the... More

The location is perfect. The interior of hotel is excellent and perhaps the best in eastern India. Service of restaurant is very good although we could not enjoy the other services of the hotel as we had to check out early in the morning. Start from the check in to check out everything was perfect.Rooms are very good & specious... More

When it came to choosing a place for a long stay at kolkata it was between only the two that i could, because of much needed proximity to work, especially in our ever increasing traffic of kolkata. Taj once again proved that my decision to choose them was absolutely right. The warmth exhibited by the staff at reception and choice... More

Like all Taj hotels, this is a well located, well maintained luxury hotel with courteous staff. The food is good, the buffet spreads in particular are quite elaborate. The only reason which prevents me from giving this a 5 is the fact that it has little character of its own. Everything is great about the hotel but nothing is memorable.

The hotel is in an excellent location. The decor is rich and pleasing. The rooms are well appointed and not cramped. But the best part of the Taj Bengal is the excellent service. Each member of the staff without exception goes out of his/her way to make you feel comfortable. The food is of course top class but the food... More
