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...

Good sized room and reasonably quiet. Didnt accept credit card for payment. No hot water until the morning when there seemed to be plenty. Otherwise room is clean. Not the easiest to find as you have to walk the entrance. A bit overpriced for what it is, but rooms secure and back off the street gives more protection frm noise.

Got slightly worried when, after midnight, the rickshaw turned into a narrow dark alleyway with no hotel sign in sight - but all was okay, at the end of the dirt track, next to the Star of David, was the entrance to the friendly little Ray of Maya. Room was well equipped: portable heater, tea and coffee making facilities, 24h...
