We stayed here for one night, after reading Lonely Planet with nothing but great things said. The room was rs.550, an extra rs.50 placed on top if we wished to use their wifi, (signage stating free wifi). Room was cleanish with a very teeny tiny bathroom. The fan was pathetic, (it was so freakin hot!). The electrcity was out for... More

Enjoyed our stay at Saniya Palace. Good budget hotel, room was clean, good location. We did reserve a room with views of the taj, however on arrival they stated that the room wasn't available. Despite this we enjoyed great views of the taj from the roof top restaurant where we enjoyed sitting in the evening. Would recommend for a budget... More

My driver is an Agra native and he had trouble finding the path that lead to this hotel. The path was lined with open drains that smelled extremely foul. The hotel rooms, while somewhat clean, just didn't seem comforting. We lost power four times during the night. In a windowless room, the silence was deafening. The lack of ac was... More

I really enjoyed our stay here. The staff were welcoming and friendly, we even played cricket in the lobby. The room was cosy and clean. Best of all it's located a five minute walk from the Taj Mahal's west gate and right next to Yash Café. The rooftop restaurant isn't the best but has amazing views of the Taj and... More

I really enjoyed my stay at the Saniya Palace Inn. It's great for a budget hotel. The staff are very kind. The rooftop view is amazing! The food is pretty good too. The rooms are so so, but you get what you pay for. The mosque nearby is very loud early in the morning so bring ear plugs!

We came here for the view and it was excellent. The room was basic and the toilet was grubby. The rooftop restaurant's food was good. It was very close to the entrance to the Taj Mahal (five minutes). The open sewers in the alleyway by the hotel were are bit pungent. The wifi was very slow, but good for an... More

Roof top view awesome. Better than the most expensive hotels. Food is pretty good. Staff super friendly and helpful. Facilities are typical of India - wifi costs, aircon doesn't really work, rooms are basic but pretty clean, most don't have windows. Upgrading to a delux room makes ur stay more pleasant. I doubt you would find better than this on... More

Great budget place in Agra! My boyfriend and I stayed here for 4 nights during our backpacking trip through India. The room was clean (although it seemed to be infested with mosquitos, i.e. we had fun throwing shoes at them : ) The manager was very nice and helpful and went above and beyond to help us when my boyfriend...

Best place ive stayed in India so far. The Saniya palace has clean and comfortable rooms and very helpful staff, particularly the manager Rava. The roof top restaurant has an amazing, clear view of the Taj Mahal and also good good quality food. Overall cant find fault with this as a place to stay....would definitely recommend.
