This is a convenient hotel for sightseeing of the 2 most famous sites in Agra - Taj Mahal and Agra Fort. Also, distance from airport is not too far (under 30-40 min). Facilities are quite comprehensive - 2 restaurants, couple of shops, and there is even a spa for massage services. The rooms are, at first glance, quite nice, if... More

We stayed here one night for the sole purpose of visiting the Taj Mahal. This place reminded me of a good European hotel. The staff was very friendly and the restaurant was especially good. Our room had a view of the Taj Mahal but I don't recommend that as it puts you on the nosier side of the building and... More

I can't add much to other comments. The hotel is very pleasant, good rooms, restaurant, pool (but need some umbrellas in the heat!!) and public areas. We had a room with an excellent view of the Taj. Service attentive, food good, breakfast the best we had in India with a wide range, including India dosas prepared to order. Unless you... More

I was lucky enough to visit this hotel whilst on an extensive business trip in India. It was the first time during my visit that I felt totally comfortable in my surroundings, in both my welcome to the hotel and the cleanliness and service from the staff. At dinner, our waiter who seemed reluctant to converse with us at first,... More

We just came from family holiday. The hotel was clean and staff was good. I did not like the swimming pool.Food was decent and view of Taj mahal was really good. On the whole it was a good stay

The hotel is in a good location for visiting the Taj Mahal and the Agra Fort, although neither are within easy walking distance, it is both cheap and easy to get a taxi. We were given a fairly large room with a view of the Taj Mahal in the distance. It was handy to have the view as you could... More

It's just gorgeous, no other way to put it. The grounds are pretty, every square inch of the hotel is detailed. The pool is pretty - a perfect oasis in the evening after running through the streets of Agra all day. The restaurants are delicious, the buffet is first rate, and the rooms are clean and well-appointed. Service is 1st... More

I traveled to Agra with my husband on my birthday this year. As this was my first birthday after our wedding, we decided to spend it a little differently. I was all the more in search of a perfect place to stay so I dont have to crib about an uncomfortable place. Now, I have not seen any other 4-5... More

Great modern Taj hotel with some rooms having a spectacular views of the Taj Mahal. We weren't expecting much from this hotel, especially since we were only paying 4000Rs, but it really was a 4/5* international standard hotel with a large pool and pleasant garden. The food was good but expensive by Indian standards.

We stayed here for 1 night. Overall, a very comfortable, reasonably stylish and well managed hotel close to all the sites of Agra. It's somewhat luxurious (part of Taj Group ) but not in the'wow' category of ambiance or luxury. We ate in the Indian restaurant which was very good.
