All the good things are in the title. The location, the view from the rooftop are amazing; and the owner is friendly and help you in everything that you need. In the other hand, the rooms are not clean and the outside bathroom is too small and dirty.

I visited this hotel in Jan 2014 and i got the rooms at rate of 1100rs per day which included a complimentary breakfast and an entrance ticket to TAJ. The booking was done via phone and i spoke with the manager of the hotel Mr Uttam who was very helpful both in terms of booking the room and also giving... More

Don't go expecting much in terms of service and other stuff you expect from a hotel. This place has an amazing view of the Taj and is definitely among the closest to the entrance, what more can you ask for? I must say that we actually got good service and the rates were very reasonable. It was all a bit... More

Had a conference in Jaypee Palace and found no where except Hotel Host to have place. They were kind enough to ensure me that the room would be booked for us. We were offered free breakfast since we went for the 1500/- room per night. Anoop surprisingly was the chef and the food was cooked really well. He also assisted... More

We didn't stay at this place - thank god. But we stopped off for breakfast. We ordered masala omelette and toast. It was served by two children who I think had made it. The omelette was burnt, cold, green in colour and tasted very odd. The "toast" had been dipped in some kind of oil and tasted rank. Neither of... More

The hotel was extremely dirty and basically, we left the room cleaner than it was upon our arrival. There was probably a renovation going on (tones of dust and noise) but nobody mentioned that to us. Two little boys were told to carry our backpacks up.One of them was smaller than the backpack. Fabric covered bedhead looked like eaten by... More

The rooms are clean and a nice size with a TV, i think a smidge pricey for a room without a bathroom but it was just across the hall and had hot water. There is a great view of the Taj from the roof and walking distance to the gate, they also sell the tickets so you don't have to... More

It is clean basic hotel which they seem to be working to raise standards and were very keen to receive feedback. I had lovely comfy bed and hot showers.. my friend wasn't so lucky so think it depends which room you are in. Great view of Taj Mahal from roof and ideal location. Staff were helpful and sweet 13 year... More

Hotel Host is a cheap basic hotel very good location to the west gate of the Taj Mahal although I would suggest you make the short walk to the south gate for the most magnificent first view of the Taj. The room was clean & had hot water. What i really appreciated was the thick blanket & the electric heater... More
