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.

This hotel is centrally located, 5-10 min walk from the taj. Great rooftop to view the taj at sunrise over breakfast or for any meal. Would definitely recommend this to anyone looking for a good deal.

We are not fussy travellers but the suspicious hairs (the short, curly variety), a muddy footprint on the damp sheets, 2 square ft 'bathroom' and cell like decor was too much. Even for us shoe stringers. Don't even think about it. It is. That. Bad!

The staff at the guesthouse are very friendly and go out of their way to help you with anything concerning your trip. We had trouble booking a railway ticket and they took time to help us sort our problem. The rooftop restaurant has a great view and good food. The location is nice as well, just off the south gate...
