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

Lovely staff! Even after waking at the god forsaken hour of 5am, the restaurant still indulged us in bringing out two yummy chai's to sip on while the sun poured itself over the Taj Mahal. Then after helping us with the frustrating task of booking a train to Varinasi, they gave us a complimentary ride to the train station. They're... More

My sister and I watched the sun rise over the Taj on the rooftop and it was beautiful! The staff is very sweet and helpful. Their motto seems to be "why not?" The room was perfect for what we needed. They let us keep our bags at reception after checking out so we could walk around unburdened until we took... More

In an area flush with budget to midrange hotels and restaurants catering to westerners, the view here of the Taj Mahal is likely the best around. Can't say the same about the food. We tried Indian and Chinese and had drinks and teas, all ordinary and a tad overpriced. But like I said, it's all about the view. The hotel... More
