Good 6.0 From 56 reviews

Fair 4.0
The property is very near to Taj Mahal, 8-10 min walk only. Though the room was big, the electrical equipments and sockets were faulty or not functional. The bathroom was not clean and the faucets were old and dirty. For the price Expedia charged, the overall experience was very poor. Our driver told us that there are better hotels nearby Taj about half the price we paid. We feel like we got ripped off.

It Says Breakfast Included. There was two option only Alu Paratha and Pasta. Outside Foods are not allowed. Resturant does not accepts the Card Transaction its only Cash. Very Bad bedsheets and cover. TV was operating but no channels to view. I would suggest not to recommend this hotel in future.
Mayank, in2 night family trip

I booked a deluxe double room with view for 3 nights six months in advance. I arrived at 10pm after a 6 hour train trip. I was given a room with double bed and an absolutely disgusting bathroom and no view. The bathroom sink couldn't be turned off and water just flowed all night. Elsewhere water dripped all night. Bathroom floor wet all night. It was a ground floor room and down hall people talking loudly and banging all night in foyer area. Next morning I demanded a new room and staff happily provided room on 1st floor with window onto side street. This room was quite suitable for the price except mattress was so hard sleep was very difficult. If given this room first night I would have made no complaint and happy with this hotel. No explanation or apology given by hotel. Location was good, a/c good, WiFi good, safe area, walking distance to Taj Mahal. Restaurant was okay but very slow service even when no other customers. On 1st floor room shower wets whole bathroom floor and it stays wet. Sheets were yellow and stained but probably cleaned and just very old. Not sure of better offerings in accommodation in Agra. But if choose this hotel avoid ground floor room.

It was ok. Great for the Taj Mahal but not really anything else. Customer service left a lot to be desired and booking a trip with them is not recommended

Overall an OK stay for one night to see the Taj Mahal and nearby attractions. Bed was comfortable but room and bathroom extremely muggy and stuffy. They didn’t have a record of our reservation when we arrived even though it was booked and prepaid, but still got the room we expected. The restaurant was pretty expensive compared to everywhere else we’ve eaten in india and the food was just ok. Also don’t book busses onward through the hotel.. they charge double what you will pay online or at travel counters and you still have to get yourself to the bus station. Same for private transfers... go with Uber or Ola cabs instead.

Rooms were alright, stay away from the restaurant, food was very poor. We couldn't eat anything from the breakfast buffet and had to go elsewhere.

The hotel is idea for visiting The Taj, nice big rooms and a great warm shower (the shower is timed and only warm at certain times). Staff are helpful, we booked two nights but only stayed one as apart from The Taj, there’s not really anything to do in the area.
