Service par excellence
Excellent stay. From the moment we checked in to checkout, the staff went over and above to give us the incomparable Taj experience. The room was impeccable and cleaned with care and thoughtfulness. Would not think twice to come back here. Bimal, Alpan, Nunet (?), Wazim, and everyone at front desk, Nizam at the restaurant, the housekeeping staff, every single staff at this property made sure to give us an extremely comfortable and luxurious stay - a big thank you!

8/10 Very good

Taj is a beautiful property with a huge legacy behind it. It's quintessential Taj and Very much Bengal not just because of it's location but the ethos it carries, the food, the people, the culture and the warmth. Always a pleasure to stay at a Taj property.

4/10 Fair

The room was good at first glance, but soon we realized the maintenance they do is close to zero for the rooms. We were very surprised to see they have flies and mosquitos inside the room. The bathroom vent was not working and faucet was leaking water. Water clogged in bathtub. We kept calling front desk, they said they sent technician who will arrive shortly, but nobody cared to show up for an entire day. I would say the breakfast even seemed pretty standard considering what similar 5-7 star hotels in Kolkata nowadays arrange for. I have stayed in Grand, Peerless inn, Novotel and many other hotels before and compared to all of those I had a huge expectation from the Taj, which I thought was obvious considering the heritage and the brand name. But I left with a heavy heart and disappointment. The next day before I left the room, noted everything in a piece of paper
