I was surprised to read the reviews about this place. I thought as far as cheap budget backpackers accommodation in India goes..this was pretty good. Staff were friendly and helpful. Food was good and the views of the Taj from the restaurant were great. Rooms were clean enough and had attached bathroom. I think for what you pay you get... More

No functioning plug, dirty rooms (even by indian standard) noisy environment and a ugly entrance. Ok, it´s not the best place but the restaurant on the top have acceptable prices and good food, the price of the room it´s also just, it´s near the south gate and, over all, the crew it´s very friendly and wary of our needs.

This hotel is the most terrible place I have ever stayed in. Please go through my miseries: 1. It's undoubtedly the most dirty place. 2. There are 2/3 people who claim to be the owner, and they themselves do not have any sync or communication among themselves. If you coplain to one of them about some thing, there readymade reply...

Just DON'T GO HERE. The owner is a terrifying, jittery, bright-eyed scamster who might just knock on your door late at night to attempt to guilt-trip you into paying three times the price you agreed. He lied to us about every single thing we discussed - the terms of our booking, the price of the room, the availability of other... More

Need to be careful the staff ask for extra money in many ways! The room in first floor is terrible, and also avoid the wooden rooms on second floo, the others are fine. The hotel is quite noisy..its true. The rooftop restaurant has a great view of the Taj, also the owner is friendly!

This place although a little expensive due to its place in the lonely planet guide is a good place to stay- the price can probably be haggled further. It has a nice view from the roof and the rooms are comfortable, with a big comfy bed. Our shower head broke first time we used it and they fixed it immediately... More

I was quoted a good price over the phone of 400 rupees for a double room. The hotel is fine for the price. However, on checkout the rate was doubled, with the manager saying "when you arrived I told you the room was 800 and you said 'ok'." I simply said no, that I would pay the quoted price, while...
