My family and I stayed here from April 28th to 30th. I was especially looking forward to it since I've heard great things about the Taj chain. Unfortunately, this did not pan out as on checking in, the front desk clerk quoted us the wrong rate. Luckily my husband had his confirmation email at hand so that was sorted out quickly. We had the breakfast and one meal package but should have opted out ( had we known), the food was of 2 class standard. I've been to dhaba's that served better food. As for the pool, it needs some maintenance because while it looked inviting from our room, it was quite slippery at the bottom once you got in. On checkout the same incident occurred where we were again billed for a higher rate instead of the one that had been confirmed and (according to the lady on check in) had been corrected in the system. If you like eating boiled food with tasteless watery sauce and noodles with vegies everyday, then by all means go to Taj Gateway Hotel, Agra. If you appreciate a delicious Indian meal that international food networks go ga-ga over and foreigners look forward too, find another hotel. This place is not worth it and should not show up on lists of 5 star hotels on the internet. On that note however, the room attendant Murti was very nice and quite helpful. Thank you Murti.
