Reviewed 10 April 2012

Rooms are basic but big and the location right by the Taj West gate is fab. The staff are so friendly make it such a good friendly place to stay. Would love to comeback.

Hotel Sidhartha is located quite close to the Western Gate of Taj Mahal, in the Tajganj area. Vehicles are not allowed inside Tajganj and hence, do not carry any heavy luggage. The hotel is very basic in terms of services offered. There is an open air garden restaurant where you can have monkeys for company. First floor rooms are comparatively better. Not a bad option for a night stay in Agra.

Room Tip: Take a first floor room

As in a lot of hotels in India "ask and thou shalt receive" is essential to keep in mind. It was very cold in February. We had to ask for a top sheet (when will they ever learn that westerners are appalled at the lack of a top sheet?) - they saw me coming..........with the sheet came toilet paper and soap an extra pillow and a lovely warm duvet. We slept well despite the usual hard bed.....
Kept the bathroom door closed to give the next room privacy in their bathroom!
The overall cleanliness was badly marred by the complete neglect of the mirrors (not on the cleaners' list?)

The garden cafe (not roof as suggested- the monkeys own that as my husband found out when he took his computer up there to do some work) has the same sort of problem, you have to ask for the table to be cleaned - point out the need for water! and try not to handle the chairs........ the staff are very well meaning so be nice but do ask.............

Quiet

It was cheap and very well placed so the value was good. We recommend it .

Room Tip: Not all rooms have hot water (but it is provided by the bucketful in other rooms) Remember to ask...

I spent 2 nights at this hotel in Feb 2012. The hotel is in a good location in the Taj Ganj area of Agra. The area doesn't allow motor vehicles, so is relatively quiet. Nice courtyard area for breakfast and snacks. The rooms are basic, bathroom had a vent through to next doors bathroom, so it sometimes sounded as though someone was in the room with you! intermitent hot water for showers. Good value.
