Hotel Amar
Ranked #35 of 144 Hotels in Agra
Reviewed 10 March 2012

I walked in the hotel for just stayed over one night before leaving tomorrow morning for visit Taj Mahal. The room rate the reception offered me at INR3,800, comparing to the room ambience was unacceptable. Finally I got discount to INR2,000 per night but they offer the room in basement with bad smell of smoking for me. The bathroom especially bathtub was dirty, fungus growth on the wall. Noisy from the room upstair and from the old air-condition nuisance me all night long.

The worst thing disappointed me, apart from above, the cashier was dishonest !!!! He said the wifi fee was INR150 per one hour, but the wifi voucher shown just INR125, what wrong with extra INR25 charged from me!!! - I noticed and asked for the inconstancy between INR150 he collected from me and the bill showing just INR125, he can not answer me, but just return to me and to my three friends for INR25 of each. He was the reception/cashier in night shift of 3rd March 2012.

Pizza Hut near the hotel is your choice if you wanna pay for the hotel dinner buffet at INR300 per head.

Room Tip: If possible, don't stay in the rooms basement floor, having bad smell of smoke.

The room: I was booked in Elite room on the Ground floor. It was a huge one with 1 double bed, sofa and even a settee laid out comfortably. There also are large glass windows which is overlooking an wonderful green outdoor. The bathroom was separate, quite spacious with bathtub, all necessary things like a small shaving kit (razor & cream), comb, hair dryer and other toiletries. The room is adorned with a lot of lighting.


The Ambience: It's fresh and well maintained. The lunch pool-side facing restaurant are just too pleasing for the eye.

The Food: This was a pleasant surprise. We reached late in the evening and looked around for food in their restaurant. We especially loved their chicken curry and dal makhani. The breakfast and tea is included in the price. The breakfast was simple but had varieties.
Cereals, puri-sabzi, breads with baked beans, vada and sambhar, cheese and eggs on demand. Milk, tea, coffee, juices, etc. though the time for breakfast is till 10 a.m. We did order beer with Cheese pakoda which were the best cheese pakados we ever had.

The Hotel is just 1.5 kms from Taj and near to the taxi stand. If you like to have coffee outside the hotel so there is Costa Coffee adjacent to the Hotel as well as Pizza Hut.

The staff was very friendly and helpful. Overall good experience to spend some time outside the city

We booked 2 rooms from this hotel 3 months before arrival. When we arrived to hotel, they just informed us, that they have no booking, allthough we had a booking confirmation from travel agency. When we tried to solve the problem, there were several managers around us most of them very unfriendly and not willing to help at all. There was a wedding season in Agra and obieysly they've sold our rooms for better price to them and just kicked us out, they also claimed, that they don't do co-operation with our travel agent. I know such can happen and to us has happened also before in India, that hotel has sold rooms twice but before they've arranged new room from a sister hotel but this time they didn't even try to help anyway but wanted us out as soon as possible.

This is a hotel for serious consideration, if you're heading to Agra.

I stayed here for 2 days and 1 night and really enjoyed my time here. The staff themselves are extremely helpful and really do go the extra mile to ensure you have a comfortable stay at the hotel.

The hotel room is large and spacious, with big windows. The air-conditioning hums very quietly, which is helpful when trying to sleep.

The layout and décor of the room is inviting and the bed is fairly comfortable.

The food - we mostly ordered room service, mostly north indian fare. Its lip-smacking, especially the aloo paratha with curd - a must try!

The railway station is quite nearby to the hotel, it is centrally located in Agra City.

I would definitely recommend the hotel for a stay, the room, the service, the staff, the location.

Room Tip: See through a few rooms before choosing upon one.....the staff are friendly and will not say "n...

Paid 2800 rupies plus tax for a stated room of 3800. This was the best mid range hotel I stayed in over a 2 week holiday. Get room with window via Internet or ring . Don't arrange with an agent unless you want to pay a lot more.
