A great stay; we had one of the Taj View rooms and unlike some of the other posters, I thought the views were great. OK there’s a road and some other stuff in front of the Taj, but you can still see it very clearly. The raised seating area was nice, but didn’t get to sit down much! The large... More

We had a deluxe room on the fifth floor facing the Taj. The room was authentically and beautifully decorated with many touches for comfort and luxury. The on-duty manager took care effectively of a mishap we had with our reservation, making our experience the more pleasurable. Room service was quick and the breakfast was plentiful. We had a wonderful experience... More

We loved our stay at the Taj View Agra. Sure, it's a high rise hotel (seven floors?) and not a heritage property, and we had a view of the pool not the Taj, but the hotel was still beautiful and the service was excellent. The room was small and maybe a little rough around the edges but still very nice... More

We stayed 1 night at the Taj View in Agra and were pleased with the hotel, room and staff service. We had no problems at all. We went early morning to see the Taj and had breakfast only after that. Breakfast was a good buffet. Overall a good hotel I would say.

Stayed at the Taj View for one night as part of a tour to the Taj Mahal. Overall the hotel is ok. Seems to be a bit dated, but clean. The service was good however. Restaurant was not very good. View from the hotel can't be beat.

We spent one night at the Taj View in Agra, and we were pleasantly surprised with the hotel. After reading other reviews here on Trip Advisor, our expecations were pretty low. The hotel had a nice, clean room and indeed, a view of the Taj Mahal. You could definitely see the Taj Mahal from our 3rd floor room. We ate... More

We live in India and know what is available from the low to the top range, in terms of hotels. Although we expected hotesl to be overprices in this highliy touristic area, we were not impressed by what we got for the price. Yes, it IS nice, and the rooms are large and fairly comfortable. Yet the service was awful,... More
