The reviews were decent enough and pretty spot on so I took a chance booking. They market themselves as a luxury hotel, but by the US standards this is a 3 star. The good news is that a lot of tourists stayed there so seems safe and the restaurant actually had pretty good food. The rooms were just average with... More

Though they claim to have 4 star rating but its not even close to 3 star rated good property. Food, ambiance and service was satisfactory but not wow. Room condition was not upto mark in terms of a 4 star rated hotel. The staff however were helpful and service was satisfactory.

The Retreat markets itself as a luxury hotel. Nice lobby - shame it doesn't extend to the rooms. No hot water, no wifi signal in room, a safety deposit box that didn't work, poor plumbing, no shower curtain, half painted door frames and zero insulation against noise from the corridor. The only positive is the attitude of the staff, very... More

The Retreat is very close to The Taj Mahal. So, it is conveniently located. I think the hotel is far better than any other 4 star in the town. The rooms are good. The food was okay. The staff is helpful. The pool was clean and nice though we did not get the time to use it. The only one... More

Clean hotel, we only stayed for one night. Bed was good, shower was hot with plenty of pressure. We received a wifi password but it never worked, for us no big deal. Breakfast was the usual spread decent and got us full.

Stayed there for 2 nights with family. We had made reservations by phone. Reached hotel without any issues with help of Google maps. Checkin was efficient and quick. Room was clean and large. Food at hotel was ok. Staff was cooperative. Would not mind staying there again.

Typical corporate type hotel with efficient but unfriendly reception staff. Stayed one night in a deluxe room which was comfortable and spacious. Dining Room was spacious and - on the night we were there - provided a good value buffet meal. Unfortunately this was spoilt by constant ringing from mobile phones. It was most conveniently located for the Taj Mahal... More

Good location. Nice and spacious rooms. Small but clean swimming pool. Service in the only restaurant is a big disappointment. There seems be not enough waiters. Breakfast spread very average. All this is surprising considering that the Hotel get a fair amount of foreign tourists. Front office staff very courteaous and helpful. Wifi connectivity ok.

very nice, decent hotel. Rooms were spacious and very clean. The staff was very friendly. Location was very good. Walking distance from ticket counter of Taj Mahal and from there one can get battery cab to take to Taj at mere Rs. 10/- per person. There was hot water supply round the clock.

The mission of a hotel should be to provide guests with safe and restful lodging. The very name of this hotel, The Retreat, indicates we should expect nothing less. Although there were no safety concerns, the night-time environment here was anything but restful. On the night of our stay, the hotel hosted a boisterous multi-generational party with kids running around... More
