Beautiful designed interior of Taj Bengal keeps me inviting for next visit. Hospitality of the hotel is unparalleled. Food in the Bengali restaurant is best I have tasted. Once you enter the Taj Bengal one will forget rest of the world.

Room Tip: I think all rooms are equally beautiful.

I visited & stayed in Taj Bengal in February 2013 for a business trip. The hotel is conveniently located near Alipore Zoo. Well to me, its the most luxurious 5star hotel in India. Its amazing, its stunning, its awesome. The reception hall with marble flooring is an exquisite site. The swimming pool right beside the dining hall is another beauty. The hotel provides utmost privacy to its guest & therefore you have to swipe your room smart keys in the lifts to get to your desired floor. The rooms are very clean. Its a great place for holding board meetings or bigger conferences & even marriage parties, as I saw one going on during my stay. My family came to visit me at the hotel & it was very convenient to get them to my room & we ordered room service food & it was delivered within 15 minutes. Great service. Very welcoming & helpful hotel staff. I highly recommend this if you are ready to shed good amount for stay.

An absolute oasis of calm and peace, only yards from the streets of Kolkata. An excellent base for business or holiday, with first class service and restaurant. Every conceivable comfort is available.
Highly recommended.

Room Tip: Only stayed twice, but not aware that there is a bad room.

It is undoubtedly the best in Kolkata. The food, the service and the location. I even got a free upgrade to the club room with access to their lounge. The rooms were quite spacious and well equipped. Though the bathroom was a bit of a let down. It's an old hotel, so that may be the reason. The hotel is close to most of the commercial districts. The food was great, as is at all Taj Hotels. The lemon grass aroma throughout the hotel gets to you after sometime though.

Recently I and My husband visited Kolkata on a Vacation + Occasion (Friends wedding) trip and we stayed in Taj Bengal for 6 nights with a one night break as we visited Sundarbans. Our stay was very comfortable and the location was very convenient for us to roam around the city. It never took more than 30 mins to reach our hotel in Taxi from all the places we travelled to. Our booking was impromptu as we were initially booked in another hotel. Since we didnot like the earlier hotel, we called up Taj Bengal and they promptly took our booking and we reached there. Initially for the first 3 nights, we were given a pool facing room which overlooked the Victoria Memorial and Vidyasagar Setu. The second set of 3 nights, we were given the road facing room, which was across the Zoological Park. The mornings very particularly lovely sight as we spotted many birds in the trees...
The rooms were average size but very clean and cozy. After long days of touristy stuff we came back to homely comfort in the hotel.
The Staff were very warm and friendly. We also spent a lovely evening in their bar 'The Junction'.
The only let down probably was their Buffet breakfast, which was complimentary. The choices were very limited and the Hot Buffet started only at 7:30am, which was a put off, as in winters, tourists would step out early morning for their tours and their Cold Buffet was very limited in choice. I was a little disappointed with their spa service too. The staff who did my service seems uninterested in what she was doing!

Room Tip: In Winters ask for the Road facing room incase you love watching birds. Since this is bang opposite...
