Basic accommodation but generally clean and OK. Don't bother paying for a Taj view. The view is good but not as good as the rooftop restaurant. If you're sensible you'll go to the Taj for 6am - so you won't see the view before as it'll be dark - and in the evening and/or lunch you'll be on the rooftop restaurant balcony where the view is not obstructed by the window.

Food is not the best we had in India but the location is great for the Taj. Near the shopping emporiums on Taj Road - ask to go to Mugal Bazaar and wander from there. There's one directly across the street that looks small from the outside but is an aladdin's cave inside. By asking for a shop directly you won't have to ask the hotel or the tuk-tuk driver and therefore save the commission.

Helpful staff, free wifi and computer use and though you have to check out by 10am, staff will watch your luggage until you need to go. Overall OK for the price.

Most inferior quality hotel I had ever stayed in my life. Water service to the bathroom & wash basin taps is extremely salty, that in the morning you would not able to brush your teeth. For a jug of drinking water (which is from their RO device) you have to wait more than an hour. Small room, you will not be able to charge your’s mobile phone as there are only two elec. Sockets, engaged for AC & TV in the room. The roof top restaurant may make you more starving, as it takes plenty of times to make you happy. Now it’s your choice………..

Located VIP road near East Gate for Taj Mahal and a 100m from the ticket office the other way location is great. Hotel shared areas clean, professional and quality! Wifi in MOST areas including bedrooms (some). Restaurant good food and average prices. Staff helpful and not pushy. Stayed 2 nights fan room front 3rd flr - £7 per night - great price!! Breakfasts additional and tasty Indian or Euro. Rooms decent size for 2 bathrooms need a little more thorough cleaning but OK. Cleaned and new towels, paper etc daily. Security guard and concierge professional and friendly. Parking at front. Had quiet nights sleep very little traffic here. Highly recommended for price!

Like most reviews, location was great, rooms were ordinary and our toilet was really smelly.
The restaurant was good, and general service very good. I would recommend it altho the pricing is just marginally high.

we have visit this hotel from 7 to 8 april, just for 1 night. Hotel location is very gud. we all are friends and same couples.... whn u wake up in the morning its really nice to see taj mahal with a hug of ur love.... everything is near.... if water quality is gud then we give 5 point ...... food is some expensive as we order for sandwich its cost is 50 /- INR and we got just a small piece of sandwich.....and i think so k uske price itne hongey ........ staff is really nice..as we request for early checkin they provide us. its really nnice to see taj mahal in the evening time from the rooftop restaurats.....just visit this hotel ..... and leave all the things on it .... and my suggestion to start bar over there for only inhouse guest as they want ...........

Room Tip: rooms are on 3rd floor are gud.. if we come agra again surely we try to take that room...

Much like the other reviews. The location of this hotel is splendid. The Taj Mahal is literally in your back yards. Views from the rooftop are great, a number of their rooms have a view of the Taj Mahal too.

The rooms are OK, they were clean.
The bathrooms, very average... not dirty, but looked stained.
The hotel has way too many mirrors, a slightly tacky feel.

All said and done. This is not an uncomfortable hotel. Nor is it dirty. For the location, the view and the price... I would totally stay here again too.

Room Tip: Request for a room with a Taj View.
