All in all we totally recomend this place to stay in Agra. It's easy to get from the railway station by tuk tuk. The location is fantastic as it is near the Taj and the street is mostly quiet. The price is ok... We found better pricing in other cities for a hotel like this though. There was no WiFi... More

Walki ditance from the Taj Mahal. Nice affordable in-house restaurant, beautiful roof top view at night. Next time I will sleep on the roof under the stars. It was clean and neat. Hosts advised us on sights and tips to deal with locals, and helpful with transport in and out of Agra.

The best welcome that you could hope for accompanied by lovely rooms are why I enjoyed my stay here. A short walk to the east gate ticket office and a kilometre away from the east gate entrance (just take advantage of the buggy service) it is situated in a fairly quiet street. I found the food a little pricey so... More

We stayed here two nights.Rooms are very basic, not cleaned and really hot.Staff was not clear about the price and at the begining wanted to charge us more than what was offered by Agoda. The internet was also not working properly.Food is ok.Overall,not worth it.
