Our group stayed here because we needed somewhere cheap and close to the Taj Mahal, and it satisfied both criteria. It is within easy walking distance of the Taj Mahal, although being within the police cordon meant that buses and taxis couldn't drop off outside. A quick phone call and the hotel sent staff to meet us and help carry... More

Me and my two frienda chose this so called hotel for it's price and being close by to Taj Mahal. We didn't have to pay much, but we got even less than for what we paid. Being white in India means that almost every single person is trying to get money from you, what I honestly didn't expect was this... More

First the good things about this place: the bathroom was clean (by Indian standards). The fixtures, faucets, toilet seat etc in my room were new and therefore clean. The room itself was clean (again by Indian standards). But the sheets were very old, stained and had holes. It's beyond me why hotel owners don't replace these things if they are... More

First thing is that yes the rooms aren't super clean as the reviews say but most other hotel were worse we checked out. We got a double for 300 after a little bargaining. The staff were really nice. The wifi was decent and the rooftop was a perfect spot to watch the sunset or just look at the taj from... More

It seems decent just to crash for few hours and continue your journey through india, not adequate for extended stay and it is a 1000 rupies so dont expect the best. The staff is helpful. At the begginig i was concern about security, but it was fine at least for the night i stayed. Yes matresses are hard, it is... More

from this horrible dump. nasties place i've ever set foot in. bugs everywhere, paint falls off everywhere you look. We booked the superior deluxe room, and all we got was a tiny room with three beds that had the same comfort as sleeping on concrete. infested with bugs. The bathroom had no shower, but just a water hole. the sinks... More

About the hotel in short: terribly filthy, dirthy bathroom, dirthy sheets, staff not helpful or even nice. What is true, that the hotel is about 50-75 m from the South Gate of the Taj Mahal and also it was an experience in my life as traveller - I can appreciate even the slightly better places now... We were talking to... More

At first I have to say that the hotel's location is very very good. It is situated just next to the south gate of Taj mahal. The manager and the staff are very friendly and helpful. In my case, I was promised to get a complementary pick up from station. But due to some misunderstanding it was not possible. But,... More

We ended up at Hotel Raj following a few signs on the main road. The reason for following them? The free wifi. It turned out to be a good choice, mostly because of the kind and helpfull staff (the wifi worked excellent as well!). There's an attached restaurant which serves ok food, they have a laundry service and it's only... More
