Best quarantine you could get
Had a wonderful quarantine experience at the Taj. As quarantine guests we were not allowed to leave our rooms but this was compensated by the breathtaking view of the city. Victoria Memorial in all its splendor, Vivekananda setu, race course, Howrah bridge...what more could a Calcuttan asked when confined to a room away from home! The food was scrumptious, with multiple different cuisines offered through the day, to break the monotony. The service was brilliant, all issues resolved swiftly and courteously. And most importantly, the hygiene standards could not be better with all housekeeping services offered in full PPE and contactless services offered for the rest. I could not feel safer in an accommodation during a pandemic than during my stay at the Taj. Thank you.

Safe as Ma’s Aanchal
We chose tajbengal for our quarantine stay (international travelling rule). The 7 days served as a soothing balm after our traumatic Vandhe Bharat Mission flight. We felt as safe as under a mother’s care. The Room service was very hygienic, healthy and delicious. The representatives were friendly and cooperative....answering my silly questions regarding the city and it’s way of coping the pandemic. Detailed precautionary measures are practiced. During such times, when health and safety is a priority, Taj lives up to its Brand name. Thank you Tajbengal.
