Stayed at the Ray of Maya recently and all in all enjoyed the experience. We wanted a budget hotel as we knew it would only be for a few hours, and we wanted a hotel within spitting distance of the Taj Mahal to enjoy the 'sunrise' experience there. We arrived at 1.00am and had our cases carried by a boy... More

We stayed here for two nights in October and were very happy with our stay. The room was clean and a good size and the bathroom was great. We were a short walk away from the Taj and just across the road from the sister hotel where breakfast is served. As others have mentioned, this hotel is down a bit... More

My sister and I booked four nights at Ray of Maya for our trip to Agra. There is a bit of confusion as there are two hotels both named Ray of Maya across the street from one another, both with the same owner. We stayed at the location without the restaurant. The hotel itself was very nice and quiet as... More

The Ray of Maya is an excellently run hotel. Mayank, the manager, is very friendly, helpful and a pleasure to deal with. The hotel is set back from the noisy road, and is very peaceful. Our room was big and very comfortable. Breakfast at the sister hotel Maya across the street - though not included - was inexpensive and delicious... More

We stayed here in early September for a few days. It's hard to find affordable CLEAN accommodation in India but this place is definitely both. The air con worked brilliantly and the WIFI was good too. Fridge in the room was very much appreciated for cold drinks. Our shower didn't have hot water the first few tries but we told... More

We stayed here because of the proximity to the Taj Mahal which is about 10 mins walk max. The rooms are spacious enough, clean and with good TVs and showers. Quite expensive but ok as location good. Near plenty of restaurants. We paid extra for a transit room here as we were catching a late train elsewhere. Very pleasant staff.

We stayed here as a family of 5 including seniors. After having arrived from Jaipur which is a super clean and organized city, Agra itself and the surroundings of this hotel were a let down. They were a filthy mess. Pros - - Very convenient to visit the Taj. 15 min walk. - Cabs are easily available outside the hotel... More

we stayed at the hotel one day. service very nice . the hotel itself in relation to the price very good. if you are looking for accommodation in Agra , close to Taj Mahal is a perfect solution for reasonable price. The hotel offers free luggage storage. To the Taj Mahal is only 8min by walk. I highly recommend.

マヤのレストランを当初の目的としつつ、ついでに泊まれればと思い駅から向かうもfullとのこと。そこで案内されたこちらは、1階オフィスのすぐ隣、恐らくはスタッフの部屋?かとは思いますが1500rsにて1泊しました。 スタッフの部屋なので、冷蔵庫、洗濯機、キッチン、ハサミなどおおよそ普通のホテルには無い生活必需品が揃っており、まあ、有難く使わせて頂きました。笑 クーラーも寒いほどよく効き、快適に過ごせました。 普通の宿泊のお部屋とは違うケースなので参考になるかはわかりませんが、少なくともスタッフは皆親切で、チェックアウトの時間である10時のオーバーも些細なことだから気にしないとのこと。また、夜の21時、バラナシ行きの列車まで居ても良いということで20時の今、有難く荷物を置き、美味しい濃いチャイを頂きコンセントで充電しながらオフィスでこれを書いています。尚、このあとシャワーもfreeで借りる予定です。 あ、ひとつだけ。レストランでのひとり当たりにひゃくごじゅうルピーずつ取られた謎のチャージ料?は、少し高く感じました。美味しかったので払いましたが、周りの同レベルのレストランも2ついきましたが、このサービス料の高さはどこにもなく。。尚且つチップも払ったので。。もしかして個人のスタッフに騙されたかな?笑 we stay only one day, but this hotel is so good and if we go here again, maybe wewell back here again. first, here is near taj mahal-west gate. 10munites we only waking.
