We had an overnight family engagement and wanted to stay near Taj. We booked Ray of Maya after reviewing feedback which all the hotels had got on online portals. We found Ray of Maya to be value for money hotel. Its a very small bed hotel with 8 rooms. The staff is very courteous. We had stayed in a standard... More

Stayed in a deluxe room. It was dated and the bathroom had a mouldy smell. No safe to put your stuff in while out and about. Breakfast not included, can be bought at the hotel across the street which is in the same chain. Highlight of the stay was the location. It is located only a few minutes walk from... More

The hotel is very close to the best attractions of Agra, which is a big +. Good stay for couples! The stuff is very kind and helpful. We met the owner of hotel, and can assure, that he is honest and reliable person. Ray of Maya is far better then other Indian standards we experienced before. The standard room is... More

The room was comfortable, relatively clean and quiet. The hotel was a bit hard to find (there is another Maya hotel right across the street and our driver dropped us off there but they called the Ray of Maya and sent a boy over to bring our luggage and show us the way through the small alley). My biggest complaint... More

Great place to stay! Our room was very clean and quite huge, the staff is nice and the place is really quiet (in a small path opposite to maya hotel). They have good wifi in rooms and even on the rooftop, with small view on the Taj Mahal, and that's great ;)

We were incredibly pleased to be in a hotel that had such lovely rooms. It's set back from the main road so much of the noise of the city of Agra is lost, which is wonderful for tired travellers wanting an undisturbed nights rest. Comfortable beds, a well fitted bathroom and plenty of space to relax in and get out... More

Convinient location as well. The restaurant in front, also from the same owners, was tasty.If you are expecting any... More

We stayed just one night but our experience was very good. It seems in an unlikely spot (at the end of a dirt alley off the main road) but our auto driver knew roughly where it was (if in doubt tell them Fatehabad road and that it is near the taj mahal west gate) and the stalls and people at...

The overall location of this hotel is great, easy walk to the Taj as well as to the main backpacker area (if you want some cheaper food). The walk up to the front of the hotel from the main road is more of a dirt path / part of a construction site than a real path, but the hotel itself... More
