One of my favourite hotels

I like the Taj, I've got to admit. Whilst the Hyatt and the Oberoi are nice and I spent several weeks in the Park, the Taj has always been my favourite. Why? The rooms (other than the basic ones) are fantastic, in a way that the Hyatt only dreams of. Great bathrooms, lots of little pots of shampoo and stuff, good sized baths and a separate shower, a little office, and comfy beds. The restaurants are also great- especially the Mongolian BBQ and I love the bar. There's also a great gym and the pool's not bad. There's also wifi all around the hotel. But what really sets the Taj above the rest is the level of service- it really is amongst the best I've ever experienced. To give an example: When going off to Howrah station, I was in a rush, and really didn't think I needed any help, but one of the receptionists found out where I was going and then called the station to check that my train was running on time- without my asking! Truly great service- even when I didn't realise I needed it.

Top Local Tips for Calcutta

Driver Arrange with the hotel to be met at the airport and transported there when you stay is over. You'll be more relaxed, especially if this is your first visit to Kolkata or the subcontinent, and you'll be surprised how little it costs.

Shopping for Handicrafts Check out swabhumi for a wide variety of handicrafts and some live folk music

Coping with the weather We travelled during the monsoon season so the weather was hot and very humid. So take light cotton clothes because you're going to have change quite frequently. Travel by limousine to attrations if you can afford it (about £11 per hour) or, of course you can use taxis. Walking about didn't look too attractive if you are going anything but short distances. Lastly, drink plenty of water during the day.
