Hotel's Favorite
It started with a royal welcome at concierge service. Sanjib Ghosh was a truly amazing host who arranged wonderful experiences for us for celebrating my birthday. A bouquet of roses, a chocolate cake, bottle of wine and many savoury delicacies. Room was prearranged with many balloons, beautiful curtains and view of elephants from Alipore zoo. Tasty food, international spreads, customization request made the experience further better. Every small detail around preserving historic flavour of the hotel impresses the guest completely. We would surely visit again.

We had a fantastic stay at the Taj Bengal above all because the staff were so kind and helpful. I was ill at one point and staff in particular, Sanjib Ghosh the concierge went out of his way to make sure that I had medication and anything else I needed. I can totally recommend the hotel without reservation.

So I anyway didn’t like the vibe and all of the propeety probably the below average property of Taj properties I have visited so far. I have stayed in Taj hotels at Jaipur, Jodhpur, Udaipur, Mumbai, Pushkar, Bangalore, etc and this one was below average in terms of vibe, welcome, warmth and all. Anyways thats not the point because how do I care about what they have trained their staff to be nice and warm to the guests or not, i felt there was a wedding also when I checked in so all other individual guests like me we were just taken for granted, atleast thats what I felt. But I go for a brand when I choose hotels because we have a trust and faith on some brands especially when you are going to some city for the first time, so thats what happened. I booked the property. At the time of checkout my taxi which I booked from outside had some vehcile issue so I asked hotel staff to arrange a hotel taxi for me, and to your surprise they just denied that we dont have a taxi. To which I understood and requested to connect me with an external vendor which also they denied saying that we cant gaurantee outside vendor’s services to which I told them I will not hold you accountable please arrange a contact for me as I need a taxi for few hours to be dropped off some 40 kms ahead to which they replied book ola/uber. Now lets just think about it I paid some extra money to stay in Kolkata with Taj thinking that they will help me out if there is anything I would need which actually they have done with me and have helped me in the past on other properties, in fact Taj Pushkar did arranged an external taxi for us when we asked them about it. They seriously left me hanging with a no contact in the city because they had a bugger wedding guests to cater to. I was in shock when they said ola uber. Never expected this from a hotel chain like Taj.

As a US born Bengali, having a comfortable place to stay while visiting family is key. This was my first time at the Taj Bengal and after doing some traveling around India for a week, and catching a nasty cold/cough/sore throat, it was a much needed respite - complete with daily breakfast buffet which was extensive and featured foods from a variety of cultures, a spa where I took a steam room and massage, and a salon where I got a shampoo and blow dry. I hosted my family in the Promenade Cafe on two occasions in the reception lobby area, and had dinner at Souk one night and in room service a few times as well. This hotel has high standards and goes above and beyond to make your trip luxurious. You will drop more money here but it may be just what the doctor ordered.
