Taj Bengal

Taj Bengal is a landmark five-star hotel in downtown Kolkata, in the exclusive neighbourhood of Alipore at the heart of its cultural heritage. Prominent landmarks—Victoria Memorial, Royal Calcutta Race Course, Horticultural Gardens, National Library, Eden Gardens and the Alipore Zoological Gardens—are all within walking distance. It is the luxury hotel closest to government offices and most consulates. The city’s commercial centre is just two miles (three km) away; 45 minutes drive to the airport. But for the twinkling views of the stunning Kolkata skyline, you could forget the hotel’s location in the centre of the bustling metropolis. Nestled in the city’s greenest precinct, you are in paradise, with lush flora teeming with birdlife and clear views of the Alipore Zoological Gardens. Designed by legendary architect Bob Fox, the architecture and interiors of the hotel are deeply inspired by the city’s famed art, culture and heritage. All around, grandeur meets understated elegance—you are awed by the lavish five-storied stone and marble atrium, bathed in glorious gold light each afternoon. Genuine antiques, priceless art, and traditional accents and colours are impeccably woven together with contemporary style and modern amenities. Stay in our grand luxury rooms and suites, or at our Grand Presidential Suite. Indulge yourself with a day at Spa and shop for finely curated Indian artefacts at Taj Khazana. Spectacular venues make the hotel the preferred choice for business meetings, social events and weddings. The wide array of fine-dining restaurants at Taj Bengal is the best in Kolkata. Enjoy robust North-West frontier, Punjabi and Bengali cuisines at the ambient Sonargaon, authentic Chinese at Chinoiserie, and Lebanese and Mediterranean at Souk. Our award-winning 24 Hour all day dining, Cal 27 serves an assortment of world cuisines; for an on-the-go craving, there is La Patisserie and Deli.

Tremendously enjoyable and beautiful
'Your feedback helps us to improve our services. ' But what if there is nothing to improve for both me and my wife feel that Taj has achieved that pinnacle of service which is closest to perfection. Right from meeting the impeccable conceirge Mr. Sanjib Ghosh, who not only warmly welcomed us but made us feel at home with his time and presence to the beautiful terracotta welcome necklaces, we eased into a weeklong space of absolute R&R. Mr Ghosh, not only answered our trivial questions about Kolkata patiently but also presented us with a beautiful memento in the way of a personalised note and photograph. He always made sure to meet us whenever he was on duty and made sure the in house dining kept a selection of fresh fruit and confections in our room every night, as he came to know about my wife's sweet tooth. The cherry on the top was the extravagant dinner organised for us at the soulful sonargaon. The ever charming mr. Ghosh, planned the dinner as a surprise for my wife and man, did he help me earn some brownie points with the Mrs.! Mr. Ghosh, you're a man who makes things happen! It was an honour to meet you. It would be amiss to not mention the kind hearted barista, Mr Kazi, who consoled our weeping kid with a delicious chocolate truffle. And the delicious masala chai and jhaalmuri that we savored amidst the soulful tunes of the cello & the violin while watching he lighting of the lamps. I Fall short of words writing about the sumptuously comfortable hotel room and the ever smiling housekeeping person Mr. Rajesh, who made our kids day with not just one but two gifts including a royal Bengal tiger soft toy. Mr. Rajesh made sure that our room was kept bsolutely prim and tidy, even after being demolished by our toddler. We never fell short of fresh towels or clean sheets or tea service or fresh fruits. He was even kind enough to wait for us the last day when my wife decided to spend a well deserved lazy day in room while we enjoyed the nearby zoo. Mr. Rajesh, you're an asset to Taj and hope you got the handwritten thank you note left by my wife at the end of our stay. Special mention to the laundry service and everyone at the Cal 27 restaurant. The laundry dept gave our clothes their utmost attention and left the Mrs. In splits when they tried cleaning and regretfully could not remove a stain from one of my tshirts. Little did they know that it was anyway on the path to become a rag but its fate changed as it was restored to its original colour by them. The chefs and the waiting staff at Cal 27 where we ate all our meals were absolutely fantastic. They not only entertained our toddler as he threw a tantrum so that we could eat in peace but also provided us with a sumptuously packed breakfast for our red eye flight. We will always remember the delicious poori subzi especially cooked and served by the chef himself! Lastly a big thanks to the staff at the recreation facilities namely the sauna, steam, gym and pool. The staff was extremely courteous, attentive and helpful. We thoroughly enjoyed all the services. At the end, would just like to conclude by saying that dont stay in Taj if you just want a room and food. Stay in it if you want to experience the best of services by the most attentive of staff, because you just don't stay in Taj, you experience it.
