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

Cheap and backpacker friendly hotel, near the Taj Mahal. The staff is nice, but they are very noisy at night. Check your door from your room when you check in. Some of them are very old. We were locked in our room. Don't let them do your laundry. It is too expensive. And it was still wet when we get... More

Unbelievable great location for the Taj, also being in the backpackers ghetto, all the amenities are there. V. Friendly & reasonably helpful staff for arranging travel within 20km of Agra. But to back to basics, the room is v. Basic, almost No Furniture, reasonably sized, TV, spotty wifi & a decent bathroom. I wanted good value for my $$, &... More

Rooms were okay for the price and it is close to Taj Mahal. What my friends and I like it was the young receptionist guy Prashant as he was helping us out quite a bit and really knew how to treat customers. I have been traveling in India quite a lot now and it was refreshing to see service like... More

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
