We stayed two nights in Ray of Maya which has two excellent points. First: its location is perfect to reach the west gate of the Taj Mahal in only a 10-minute walk. Second: the wifi is really excellent. The best we had in our whole stay in India ! If the room are quite big and well-equipped, the cleaness was...

THE PROPERTY: It’s a bit off-putting when you arrive and pick your way down a typically filthy Agra-alley to the hotel entrance, but once inside it is quiet, clean and comfortable. The rooms have a rather 70s décor feel to them, but were great value. Breakfast was good and at their sister property across the street, but service was not...

Very good stay with Mayank who made us feel very welcome, approachable and great advice. Close to taj around 15-20min walk and good restaurants nearby, the associated maya restaurant is average we only ate once there. Room is large and clean by Indian standards and price, more than acceptable for the money. Shower was strong with plenty of hot water....

The hotel is well located (15 minutes walk from the Taj Mahal). It's clean, new, nice rooms with big windows, a huge shower. The beds are comfortables. Its quiet. We were very well welcomed by the staff. We have nothing bad to say. There is no restaurant at this hotel, but the partner of this hotel has a really nice...

Booked spontaneously coming from Delhi to visit the Taj. Warm welcome by staff and even offered free pick up service from train station. Clean, roomy and good value for price. It's close to Taj West Gate and in quiet backyard.

Quiet location just off the main road. Only a short, 15-minute walk to the Taj Mahal which we were able to arrive in time for sunrise. Comfortable beds in well-decorated rooms. Unfortunately, the shower was only luke-warm. Very helpful staff.

We had booked this hotel for two nights but were able to stay only one night. We fully expected to have to pay the full price of the second night as well but they were super nice and we only had to pay a very small fee of the second night. The location of the hotel is good, rooms are...

The hotel rooms are clean and hot water is available all the time which is a plus point in India. However, the hotel claims that it is having problems with credit card facilities and only accepts cash which is a big issue for travelers. When we checked in on 26th January 2017, the manager, Rahul assured us that we will...

We stayed at Ray if Maya one night, and we were very happy with it. It's only a few minutes walk away from the Taj Mahal and inside it is clean and comfortable. The staff was very friendly and happy to talk with us. Don't let the outside deter you (since it's down a small dirt road and the junk...

Both of our rooms were clean and spacious. The staff tried to be helpful although we did have issues with being unable to pay with credit cards. The hotel is not on the street but rather behind another building and there isn't much to see. However, it's quite close to the Taj Mahal and thus ideal for getting an early...
