The rooms are basic, but it's Agra and a stay of more than 2 nights would be strange ... The location is great as it close to the East Gate/ticketing booth. I would recommend this hotel for any budget traveller. The reception and restaurant staff is friendly and helpful.

The location of the hotel is amazing- right on the east gate of the taj. The hotel is quiet, and has a nice garden setting, but be aware of what you book and pay for! We booked a standard room, only to find out in the reception that there is no hot water in the shower ( only in a... More

The room was small, very basic and not that clean... some rooms have AC and others only have a ceiling fan. Free wifi was sometime available on the roof and sometimes available in the lobby. Basic meals were served in the rooftop restaurant. Staff were friendly and helpful. A pretty basic hotel but well located.

2 minutes walk from the East Gate of the Taj Mahal, Hotel Sheela is down a long driveway which allows you to escape the touts on the streets of Agra. Simple rooms which are clean, tidy and reasonably priced, restaurant on site. 20 minute rickshaw ride from the train station for around 120 - 150 rupees. The hotel has wifi... More

Clean, cheap, good fixtures and beds. Excellent location. The staff is very friendly. The hotel is located minutes from the foreign tourist gate at the Taj Mahal. The garden is veryy welcoming after a day of touring Agra.

Good option if you are on a budget and want a good location. The staff are friendly, the food was nice (good quality and value for dinner). The rooms were pretty basic though. But the hotel is around a 200 metre walk from the East Gate and surrounding shops and cafes (only problem was that the Taj ticket office for... More

We paid about $15 for an AC room in July and for that price, this was a fine place to stay for a night. The sheets had a bit of grease stain on them but bed was comfortable and we slept well. No issues with bugs getting in the room, and there were quite a few outside. AC worked well... More

Obviously you don’t get to stay at the Tajmahal, so staying at hotel Sheela is probably the closest you can get to the monument. So close, that its entrance falls in the area around east gate which is cordoned off. The plus points first: 1) Location of the hotel is its main plus point. 2) A pleasant surprise is the... More
