My husband and I stayed at this hotel for 1 night as part of our Golden Triangle tour. The hotel is situated fairly close to the Taj Mahal, probably about a 10 minute drive away, so is useful in that respect. The hotel is fairly secure as there are gates manned by security staff at the front of the hotel.... More

Been to this hotel many times by now...its pretty decent 4 star hotel compared to other hotels in Agra in the same category. It is one of the old hotels and holds a very prime location close to Pizza hut and other eateries. Over all good hotel.. worth every penny. PS: roof top is good for parties. 4 Stars

We were committed to this hotel as part of our Intrepid / Peregrine tour of Rajasthan, so I have no idea how much it costs or the value. The property is about 10 minutes from Taj Mahal and is behind a secured gate. Upon entry, the place is fairly impressive with a wide open lobby, modern restaurant, and a gigantic... More

We stayed here for 1 night while visiting Agra. This large hotel has good sized rooms with excellent showers. The hotel suffered however from the (apparently) nationwide difficulty of poor quality, worn out, paper thin, threadbare hotel towels (its a personal bugbear with me) - It let down the otherwise excellent facilities in the hotel. That said, the staff were... More

This hotel is located right in Agra city center, half a kilometer from Taj Mahal. It is a very nice hotel and I was very happy with everything: room, breakfast, location and staff. Shops and restaurants are nearby and my stay was very enjoyable.

It has a nice-looking lobby, but the rest of the hotel is a bit shabby. As an example, the drain pipe on the sink in our room had literally rusted all the way through, to the point where water was dribbling out through the crack and when I touched it, the rest of the pipe simply crumbled away. They fixed... More

Stayed here New Year's Eve, 2014. The location is ~5 minute walk from the gate to the Taj Mahal and adjacent to a few decent dining options (decent for Agra). The room was fine, but the restroom was dirty with mildew on the caulking the washroom. We were forced to pay $50 USD pp on New Years Eve (mandatory) for... More
