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

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
