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.

If you are back packing and want cheap and cheerful. This is probably your place to stay. We only had one night, which was enough for me. Bathroom good size and room. Not so clean and top sheets not supplied. Lovely gardens. But ensure you dont get a room on the front driveway. The smell from the ditch running behind... More

Are you looking for a dump without any customer service but right next to the Taj? If so, this is your place. It's not particularly clean or nice, but you can't be any closer to the Taj Mahal. It was the right fit for this trip.

The location of this hotel is good, but the rooms are not very good. the beds were not comfortable, our room was damp and musty, and they have cooperations with rickshaw drivers. When it is cold outside, you will freeze in the room, and then it is not comfortable to get your bucket of hot water outside of your room.... More

This small hotel is located within a stones throw from the Taj Mahal entrance. The rooms are small and so are the bathrooms, but for the walking convenience it's well worth it. Everything is walking distance from this perfect location, the Taj Nature Walk is down the street.

We stayed here for one night to visit the Taj Mahal, and to be honest, if you can get away with not staying in Agra you trip will benefit. The city itself is very dirty and full of misquotes, like no other place we visited in India. Sheela is okay if you are staying one night. Rooms are clean, it's... More
