We stayed here in May 2014. Family of four - two adults and two children (5 and 10 year old). Great experience from when we arrived to when we left.

Most visitors come to Agra for one reason, to see the Taj Mahal. For that purpose, the only place to stay is the Oberoi Amarvilas though it is a bit pricey. The hotel is situated less than 1/2 mile from the Taj Mahal and every room has a direct view of the monument. That makes the experience very special. The...

This hotel is exquisite. From the entry way to the lobby, restaurants, pool and rooms, absolutely fabulous. We could see the Taj from our room. It really doesn't get any better than this.

The Amarvilas is a very good hotel in Agra. It has a very good location, comfortable rooms, and high levels of service. Just don’t be fooled by the photos! • While the rooms have a few of the Taj Mahal, it is quite a bit further away than suggested in the photos. Particularly on a hazy day it appears far...

I've made a booking for celebration of our marriage anniversary. We have requested an early check-in and it was confirmed instantly. Many hotels don't do like that.

Glorious view, glorious staff, glorious food. IMPECCABLE service. From the moment you arrive, you are treated like a Maharajah. Fabulous pool. Fabulous everything. I wish i could have stayed longer.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Taj Mahal is extraordinary as much for what it is as how it has escaped the banality of cliché. For 350 years, this monument evokes a sense of wonder. Only by being there can you witness its true majesty, its symmetry, its setting and the delicacy of its carved marble inlaid with precious stones. Now just suppose you were to overlook it from your hotel room? The Oberoi Amarvilas is 600 metres from this tribute to love. The lavish interiors and elaborate gardens add to the serenity of the scene. The guestrooms are palatial: all have magical views and are luxuriously furnished with traditional fabrics, white marble, hand-crafted ornaments and every modern amenity. There is a luxury spa offering a range of therapies, a swimming pool where snacks and drinks are served; an ornamented ballroom and fine restaurants to suit the international palate. But the lobby lounge is a feast for the eye designed, as it was, around that glorious view of the Taj Mahal. ... more   less
