We stayed here one night after arriving by train from Delhi. The station at Agra was an experience as the porters loaded our luggage ( there were 14 people in out party), on there heads and arms. The one porter carried half the bags on his own. The hotel was situated in the town, with a doorman dressed in white... More

We only stayed for a night on a tour and the hotel is good for this as it is so close to the Taj and all the wonderful sights of Agra. However we probably wouldnt have wanted to stay for much longer than this. The room was OK but not as good as other hotels we had stayed in. Could... More

Terrible desk service ruined what should have been a very comfortable stay at a nice hotel. During just my short two day stay, I had trouble with the hotel wifi. The desk staff response to my complaints was to ignore me and then, in response to continued complaints just tell me dismissively to "sit in the lobby and use the... More

At first sight the hotel appeared to be a new one. When we entered the lift we immediately noticed that it was not clean. Once we reached first floor you get a smell of humidity and dust which clearly showed that it was not well maintained The room also was dark. They tried to renovate but u could still see... More

Room is spacious, clean but needs renovation. Staff is welcoming and attentive. Restaurant with decent food. Our room was on an upper floor overlooking a school and its yard, so we could observe many school events taking place in the yard, which we found interesting and different from what we used to see in schools back home. We saw a... More
