Ray of Maya is a beautiful, clean hotel with views of the Taj from the rooftops and balconies. The rooms are clean, the showers have good water pressure and temperature - although at 5am when everyone is getting up for sunrise over the Taj, the pressure did drop intermittently for a short period. The staff were very helpful and friendly.... More

An excellent hotel, very handy to visit the Taj (a very short walk). It is in an "unusual" place down past an empty wasteland, but this is gtreat as it is very quiet (nothing else is quiet in Agra) Rooms were great. Excellent staff. Meals and drinks were in the sister hotel across the road. To get to the rooftop... More

Very nice experience at this hotel! Friendly hotel manager and staff, SUCH clean rooms, amazing AC, well located- only a short walk to Taj West Gate. The Maya hotel's restaurant across the road was a perfect place for breakfast!

I stayed in a suite. The room was spacious and comfortable but nothing else was special. Normal rooms will be enough. A little bit difficult to find and access from the street. Hot water was available. The staff was kind and helpful. Maya restaurant, located across the street, is also excellent.

Eeva S, Owner at Ray of Maya Hotel, responded to this review

Dear Joe, Thank you for taking time to post a review. I understand your discomfort on the unpaved and narrow road. Due to a new construction site that came up recently, the beginning of the road has narrowed a bit with all the construction material spilling over, but it is a temporary phase. The hotel would’ve sent a staffer to... More

If you're in Agra to see the sights and explore the busy streets of this city, the Ray of Maya is a great choice. With distant views of the Taj from the rooms at front, and only a short walk away for those sunrise visits, the staff are polite and helpful and the rooms are clean. We did come back... More

Clean rooms, with polite staff, quite near to the Taj Mahal (and it's a good point if you want to go to see it at sunset), not noisy at all considering that the street it's quite full of traffic and with a very good price considering the overall stay.

perfect spot to escape the chaos of Agra, 5 minutes walk from the entrance of the Taj Mahal, their restaurant on the opposite side of the street serves excellent food. the plus is monkeys staring at you from the trees in the back yard.

Good value for money. Well located at walking distance from Taj Mahal entrance gate. Big problem with electricity that cuts off every 15 minutes. No restaurant inside the hotel : you need to cross the road to go to a partner restaurant to have breakfast. Breakfast is basic.

Close to the main attractions with a very friendly staff (especially Mayank), Ray of Maya is indeed a very nice place to stay in Agra. The hotel is full with all needed by traveller, especially in India where everything is a little bit more complicated, including nice, quiet and clean rooms, fresh air conditioning and fans, fridge in the room...
