This hotel is perfectly situated for visiting the Taj, as it's only 200m from East Gate (mind you, you need to walk about 1K to West Gate to get tickets there, or buy them in Agra Fort). We stayed for one night, in a 900 Rs. room, which was very basic, but really all we needed. The hotel has a... More

Good, clean, basic rooms with everything you need. Great location, very quiet at night. Staff were friendly, cash only accepted though. Not sure about the food though, I did fall ill during my stay. However, this is a problem particularly in Agra.

Such a great location as it is so close to the East gate of the Taj Majal. We had 2 rooms (for our family of 4), and I think we may have stayed in some of the least desirable rooms in the hotel. Unfortunately I can't remember the room numbers, but they were the farthest two rooms on the right... More

probably closest hotel to the Taj Mahal [approx. 200 metres from East Gate] Very clean and good value but the food and service not up to much. Same problem as rest of India with power going off during night resulting in no fan or a/c and hot sweaty nights.

We stayed here for two nights. The room is not great, but ok for the price. The staff is nice and they even made us breakfast when we got up at 04:30 in the morning to visit the Taj Mahal. One bad thing was the unstable power system. Both nights our electricity went out which caused the room to reach... More

We had a two person bedroom with an extra bed. The room was very basic and small. Breakfast was not included, but you could get it for a small price. The hotel is very close to te eastgate of the Taj Mahal, so that was the reason for staying there.

The hotel is in a lovely garden and very close to the Taj. While I have no complaints the lonely planet does make you think it'll be nicer than it is. Basic rooms, nice and clean. But very hot and stuffy, all for 500rs. Which is a nice budget price.

This place is basic. Embrace the bucket bath, ensure you have a power board and bring the mosquito repellent. Wifi is is on and off but the food is cheap and it is close to the Taj. The staff were great.

Great location, so close to Taj East Gate. Food was reasonable price and average quality. WIFI was constantly breaking off and couldnt connect to EITHER of their routers. Customer servise was standard.. not mean but not friendly. Rooms were okay, good sized bed, very few plug sockets, bathroom was okay.. If you want good location to Taj, perfect! If you... More

Hotel Sheela was a good budget stay conveniently located next to the East Gate of the Taj Mahal. Rooms were spacious and nice enough but could have been a little cleaner. The best part is the center courtyard where you can order food, relax, and use the wifi. Hot water buckets available and friendly management.
