Reception very friendly. Rooms are satisfactory for pricing. If booking don't get room under restaurant as noisy with chairs scraping. Very close for visiting Taj Mahal and only short tuktuk ride from Agra Fort. We walked all around bazaar area near fort without any problems.

Room was small but nice and clean, price ok, hot shower, wifi inside the room for extra charge, towel and toiletpaper available. The view from the rooftop is amazing, you can see Taj Mahal while having breakfast :-) The only thing to complain is that it was very noisy at night.

This place is listed in the Lonely Planet guide. It's not terrible but don't believe the hype. Pros: It is located within walking distance of the east, west and south gates (less than 10 minutes walk to either of these gates). I visited 4 other rooftop restaurants while in Agra. This place has the best view by far. The food... More

Is it a good place for staying? Well, depending what you are looking for and what you want to pay. This is India... Saniya Palace has different rooms with different prices. I wouldn't recommend the cheapest one, but it's not necessary the most expensive room. Our room was quite basic but enough, and of course it was quite cheap. It... More

The fog prevents a view of the Taj Mahal, however there are many qualities this hotel offers that compensates. Lovely staff, convinient location for restaurants and shopping, and rooms (although basic) that provide all you need for an enjoyable stay. Recommend.

This place is an over priced "budget" hotel. If you can afford it, skip the Taj Ganj area altogether. The room lacked basic amenities like soap, enough blankets for the two of us (2) and working lights. Staff were rude and passive aggressive when asked for anything. When I asked if they had any chappal lying around I could use... More

Went for the 'deluxe rooftop' room and was disappointed. The room is on the rooftop along with the kitchen and restaurant, which you cross to get to the balcony and see the Taj Mahal. The en suite bathroom was filthy, the flush didn't work properly and the paint was peeling in the room. You had to pay for wifi (I... More

I recommend anyone to stay here, even if only for the views over the Taj Mahal. We could spend hours up on the roof admiring the view. Service is excellent, friendly and accommodating staff, good food and working wifi! Very conveniently located 5min walk to the West and South Gate. West gate opens the earliest so perfect for those who... More
