If you want to use this hotel for seeing the taj, keep in mind that the east gate doesn't sell tickets. The south gate opens an hour later, we entered through the west gate but had a big delay by this, resulting in standing in line. About the hotel; average rooms, a bit dirty and no ambiance at all. Small... More

It's an average hotel and even a bit shabby. The location is good, walking distance from the taj. But I think you can get better places with a better view for the same price. The rooms aren't very neat. Bed was alright but the sheets and towels stained. Bathroom was a bit dirty. Overall not to bad, but certainly not... More

Good location...in a quiet street. But it's not cheap and cheery. Room very ordinary and a group,of us ordered lunch at around 1.30pm and the final meal came out at 3.15pm. It appears they can only cook one meal at a time, the ingredients are fresh as they shop for each meal after you order. Triple check they understand the... More

If you are looking for a quieter atmosphere and good budget option, this is your place. The food is lovely and the staff are welcoming, you are also within stones throw distance from the taj east gate.

We had a room for 800 Rupies and we were not satisfied. It was really dingy, with mould on the walls and dirty bed linen. For one night just ok but I would not stay there for longer. The service was not very friendly neither nor was the restaurant good.

The hotel was right at the upper limit of our backpacker budget but I'm glad we spent the extra money. Hotel Sheela is literally 100 metres from the East Gate of the Taj Mahal but, apart from one night of pounding bass from a nearby Diwali celebration, you can easily forget Agra's busy streets are just outside the front gate....

If you're looking for quiet this is probably the best place in Taj Ganj, Agra. It's within the "pollution free" zone so it doesn't get nearly as much honking etc. They have a nice little garden area and the restaurant is ok but a little pricey. The basic double with in room shower was ok as well. No hot water,... More

It's a good place to stay if you wanna visit Taj Mahal. Taj Mahal ticket offices are 1km away from the hotel,remember to go there first!! The room was pretty basic but enough for what we paid. Food was nice although we paid more for a couple of beers than for the food itseflf.
