I stayed here for my one night in Agra. It is literally a 2 minute walk from the Taj south gate, and the price was pretty good considering the location. It has a decent restaurant with a nice guy running it, and a rooftop patio with Taj Mahal view for all to hang out. Those are the good things... The... More

I didn't like anything about this hotel, no plugs working, very dirty rooms, at a noisy place and if you inform the people at the hotel people then they will not take any action until you complain couple of times. But the breakfast on the room was good and acceptable. I would never suggest anyone to go and stay there.

We arrived in this hotel at 3am after our train, it was the only hotel available so we took the room. The reception guy asked us to pay right now as he couldn't check us in immediately with passports. I asked for an invoice, or receipt or any proof of payment, he didn't give us any and put the money... More

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!
