Stayed for a weekend - excellent staff, very polite and friendly. Only hotel where the staff offered to look after our baby so we could have a nice dinner. And good travel service too. Strongly recommended. And the alfresco dinner was excellent. The cook was forthcoming with some of his recipes besides offering nice food and ambience.

This review is long overdue if for no other reason than to sing the praises of the wonderful Mr Ali who was a model of calmness and serenity when I was stressed to the gills! My daughter and I had just one night in Agra (Nov 2010) which is far too short a time to see everything this city has... More

We were very happy with the Gateway Hotel in Agra. The room which was standard, was large and had a view over the city (not the Taj Mahal), was well equipped with t/c making facilities, flat screen TV, bar and large bathroom. The breakfast was a superb buffet with everything from smoothies and curry dishes, to omelettes or poached eggs.... More

I booked hishotel after much deliberation on hotels in Agra. After I read horrible things about most hotels in Agra I decided that even for one night, it was worth paying so much money for a ex Taj branded property. The website looked good, the staff were helpful when I booked online and did a wire transfer. Lovely lobby area,... More

Stayed here for two nights over New Year 2010/11. Very misty and cloudy for most of the day, hampering any view of the Taj Mahal. Managed a brief glimpse from room on the morning we were leaving. Hotel pretty basic, but it all worked. De-luxe is a euphemism! Staff are indifferent, food in restaurant is basic too, and not very... More

When we checked out the manager offered to pack some us fruits and sandwich as one of our kids was not very well. He was very prompt and very helpful. Buffet dinner at... More

Close to the Taj Mahal and fort, the simple exterior is not fancy, but the rooms were very comfortable, and came with a coffee maker.

I had my travel agent book this hotel for me as i was under the impression that being under the Taj Group of hotels, the standard would be similar to any other Taj Hotels. I was so wrong. It took room service 20 mins to provide an extra towel. No bedroom slipper were provided. The food however was pretty good.
