Taj Bengal, a city landmark in downtown Kolkata, is just 3 kms from the city's commercial centre and the nearest luxury hotel to Government offices and Consulates. Located in the city's greenest precinct, it is within walking distance of the Victoria Memorial, Royal Calcutta Race Course, Horticulture Gardens, National Library and the Zoological Gardens thus ensconced by flora and foliage that teems with bird life. 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 colors are impeccably woven together with contemporary style and modern amenities.
