“Not recommended (unless you like cockroaches)”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 December 2011

Killed a cockroach in bathroom but missed a couple more. (Friend said he felt one crawl on him in the night). Lobby good. Staff OK. Friendly enough. Restaurant OK but nothing special. Beds seem clean, but pretty dirty floors/walls. Internet for 75Rp/ 30 min. Fairly standard. Location OK. A few restaurants and shops around. Friend had nice shalwar kameez made in a few hours by a little tailor nearby. Pretty busy road though, so not for the timid to cross. I did not like walking here at night on my own.
The only reason to come to Agra is to see the Taj Mahal and the Agra Fort. Although Agra is quite dirty and ugly, these heritage sites are definitely worth seeing.

If you are travelling to agra i recommend this hotel only. Its a great hotel i mean with the location. class of service, quality of food. Its very near to the Taj. Though the hotel rooms looks little old type still its worth. The auto drivers are familiar hotel you wont have problem to locate it.Staff are co-operative buy little late to response. But value for money.

The hotel looks fine from the outside and the lobby actually looks quite nice. More than what you would expect from a budget hotel. But the rooms are tiny and nothing short of horrible. Everything looks old and rather unclean. The bed was also very short, my feet were hanging off the bed and I'm just 1.68 m, so not sure what a tall man woud do... The only good thing about the place is the Costa cafe next door. Would never come back again and certainly wouldnt have booked it in the first place,reading all the bad reviews on tripadvisor, but stayed here as part of a group tour.

If you visit Agra, stay at Amar Yatri Niwas to visit Taj, Agra fort and others. Convenient place located at Fatehabad Road. From CCD to P Hut, ATM and mkt-all are stone throwing distance. Rates are moderate but rooms are small and food is expensive. Vacant space in room is approx 6 sq ft. But amenities are good. car parking is road side, but security is there.

Don't go by the hotel lobby. The rooms are not ventilated. They have cockroaches (we checked 4 rooms plus the hallways) The hotel rooms and hallways have been sprayed with a combination of room freshners plus cockroach spray. This really bothered our 5 years old who has allergies. We had to move on the 2nd day after he fell very sick.

The included breakfast was idli (avg), sambhar, parathas (good) and curd. The juices are from packaged cartons fed into dispensers. The tea is tea bag oriented and coffee is coffee powder based.

The staff is courteous and helpful but the hotel stinks (literally).

Stay away would be my recommendation

Room Tip: No good rooms that we have seen

This is a 3 star hotel in Agra, about a mile from the Taj Mahal (easily within walking distance). The star ratings in India seem to bear little resemblance to the star ratings in the UK so dont have too high an expectation. The rooms at the Amar Yatri Niwas were pretty small and although they had aircon, it was very noisy and ineffective. Using it as a base for the tourist trail, its not bad, but probably wouldnt want to spend more than 2 nights there. There is a Costa coffee downstairs and a pizza restaurant a few doors down, so if you are really not coping with the Indian food, there are a couple of western options.

Stayed here for a night. Dingy rooms. Bad lighting. Only savior was costa coffee outside and Hotel Mansingh Palace for dining (which is a fantastic property).
