Self made rules harassing customer. Not a clean hotel too. Food expensive more than a 5 star. Should respect customer and its required services. Room service need major improvements and efficiency. Rest all was ok.

We had a pleasant one night stay here on our recent tour of Delhi, Agra, and Rajasthan. While the hotel is a little rough around the edges, perhaps due to renovations--the public spaces DO need this-- our room was just fine, clean, comfortable, and with good amenities. The bathroom does have a transparent window/wall which might make things uncomfortable for... More

We visited Agra on 9th & 10th Aug 2014 & had stayed in this hotel. Really enjoyed our stay there. Good rooms, great service & very courteous staff. Just wish the reception staff were a little more updated on the information about the details of places of interest in Agra.

Nice pleasant hotel. Excellent for short stay. Staff polite. Need more staff in restaurant, or staff need training. Crockery and cutlery in short supply. Breakfast although buffet style, wasn't very enjoyable. Tea cold in flask. Toaster didn't work properly. Commentary wifi but didn't work very well in room. Overall pleasant stay. 3***

The hotel is a nice property closer to Taj. Lets be honest it is not a five start property neither do they claim but i guess a very decent property to stay with family closer to Taj.

Luckily we only stayed one night at this hotel that smelled very strong of cow dung. Although it was shown free wifi, it did not work at all. Breakfast was quite poor, lacking fresh fruit. In general Agra city is very dirty and shabby. The only things worth visiting are Taj Mahal Fort and Little Taj. Also worth buying gemstones.
