This hotel is amazing. This could be the end of my review! What can I say? Where do I start? Check in was seamless. We were led to the lounge to check in with a cold drink in front of the Taj Mahal. We had a premier room with balcony. It was simply amazing. I cried when I got to... More

We only stayed in the hotel for one night but wished we could of stayed of longer. The hotel is absolutely breathtaking. The gardens are beautiful, the decor is fabulous and the view from our bedroom was everything we visited Agra for. The staff couldn't have been more helpful and nothing was too much trouble from the welcome right through... More

This is the only place to stay when visiting the Taj Mahal, if your budget allows. The hotel is truly world-leading with clever design ensuring all rooms offer a view of the Taj Mahal. There is 30 minutes free wifi per day and buying more wifi is easy. The swimming pool is gorgeous and a great place to relax after... More

We spent two weeks touring Rajasthan, almost exclusively staying in Oberoi Hotels. Friends recommended that we only stay one night in Agra, so we followed their advice. As a result, we did not have a chance to relax by the pool or take a walk around the grounds. We arrived at three in the afternoon and left after breakfast. We... More

Its hard to describe the feeling of waking up and pulling back the curtains to see the Taj Mahal! The balcony I think is an extra on the room but definitely worth it, its a treat to sit in the afternoon sun with a cold drink in the warm air. Service was exceptional, and breakfast in particular was good with... More
