The best part of the hotel is definitely the view of the roof top restaurant. You can see the huge and amazing Taj Mahal while you drink your coffee... the staff in the hotel was always friendly and helpful. The bathroom of the room could be definitely cleaner, but for the price I didn't expect a better room. So it... More

Stayed here for one night in the top room of the building - only after they tried to fob us off with a dark and dingy one elsewhere ("by mistake") with no view despite booking it. No Taj view from the room itself but much nicer than the other rooms and next to the roof top restaurant which has an... More

I arrived in Agra almost past midnight as my train was delayed for hours. Then it took a while for the tuktuk to find this place. The glass door was closed and the lights inside were out when I knocked. The staff sleeping in the reception area woke up but just stood there in the dark as if they were... More

We heard that there was a great view of the Taj Mahal from the rooftop restaurant at this hotel so went there for dinner. Saniya Palace Inn is anything but a Palace: it is a dingy, dirty part of Agra with narrow streets and open drains. This hotel is ONLY suitable for young back-packers on a low budget. At night,...

After arriving we were shown a room which was not the one we booked but more expensive. We asked for the cheaper room but were told that there are no other rooms available. So he made us a "special" offer for the more expensive room. We should have just left and searched for another hotel at this point. But since... More

We arrived at 10pm at the hotel and our room had been given away to others who were asked to leave. I had emailed prior to arriving that we'd have a late check-in! The sheets were dirty but those were changed for us; the staff were a bit off with me after that! The staff were crude, discussing sexual exploits... More

Though the beds and pillows were perfectly comfortable, there were no sheets and the blankets offered were scratchy. We asked for different blankets (because we saw that some rooms had nicer blankets!), but nobody brought them though they said they would (we ended up taking one from an empty room!). The 'hot' water was not. The room was a good... More
