Served its purpose of being close to the Taj Mahal for a 6 AM visit. But otherwise, the room was a bit creepy, the bed uncomfortable, the "hot" water luke warm, and the wifi incredibly slow. The free pick up wasn't available to us, so the manager did off us free drop off. However, when we showed up at the... More

Stopped by for a beer and decided to grab something on the menu. Price was great and it ended up being the best food we've had in Agra. Jimmy helped us out and was really nice!! Also super close to the Taj Mahal which gets super hot which this restaurant makes a great place for a beer or refreshment

The worst lunch I ever had. They mentioned free WiFi at entrance but there is no WiFi. I asked for some chopped onion and after 15 mins and reminding them, they said it won't be provided. The only good thing is its right next to Taj everything else is the most worst you can ever think of.

We only came to Agra to visit the Taj Mahal so the state of the accommodation wasn't a priority. The rooms are quite small and dingy but this place definitely served its purpose as we got free pancakes for breakfast and dinner was cheap and delicious. The staff were very kind and we were particularly fond of Jimmy. The Taj... More

If this B&B wasn't 50m away from the Taj Mahal I wouldn't stay here. But the location does succeed everything and is perfect if you are going to Agra for maximum one night to see the Taj and the fort. One night is enough, as there were cockroaches and lizards in the room, one light to the toilet didn't work... More

This was my second stay. Great location because it's close by the south gate. Maybe a bit noisy in the morning, but most people wake up early for the sunrise so it wasn't really a problem. We couldn't book any train tickets anymore and other travel agencies would take a ridiculous high commission fee. They've helped us booking a ticket... More
