It was a perfectly acceptable hotel for 500 rupees a night in a good location, just off the Taj's East Gate. I was the only person staying there which was a bit awkward as I felt like the staff were a bit intense at times. I would certainly recommend you don't eat in the rooftop restaurant there though - the... More

Rooms aren't great, but for one night (all you really need in Agra), it's a great backpacker option. Nice gardens and ok breakfast/ internet. The location is pretty awesome as it's right next to East gate and a short walk to South gate for the Taj Mahal.

In agra it is hard to find a cheap and good hotel - we had a look to about 10 different hotels, but almost all of them were bad. Compared with the sister hotel (sheela, without "inn"), the location is a bit less good, but the rooms are much better in sheela inn - they are dry, we got enough... More

Stayed here 3 nights, and found it a decent budget hotel. Good points, friendly staff and small orange dog, the location, breakfasts (had one at 6am for an early train), decent sized room. Not so good points, all that marble means noise does echo around the corridor, WiFi can be patchy as can the hot water (had to have a... More

I think hotel is under construction, TV was not available in the room and hot water was available only in the morning. But Taj Mahal is at walkable distance from this hotel Overall it is a nice hotel to stay

We booked this hotel last minute following a recommendation in the 'Rough Guide' to Rajasthan book. It certainly was rough. The staff greeted us by doubling the pre-arranged price from 4000 Rs to 8000 Rs for a twin room. The room itself, once we'd run against the wedged door to gain access granted had beds, but the unsmiling hotelier watched... More

Great food, very near to the shops and craft market. Cute little dog and helpful staff. Roof top restaurant and would definately recommend! Listen for the gunshots to scare away the monkey and look down on them from the rooftop and watch them grooming one another! So entertaining

I will recommend this hotel. it is situated in an excellent location just a few steps from the TAJ eastern gate ticket counter(shilpagram). It is just 800 metres away from the TAJ. The room was large and clean also the toilet. The staff of this hotel is very helpful.The cuisines in the rooftop resturant is good.

I can certainly recommend this hotel. Was very clean, room was big, great location - 10 min walk from Taj Mahal. Quite good restaurant on the roof with great Taj view. Good prices and nice, helpful owner, even small owner's dog was very friendly and sweet. Totally great place to stay!

Good value at 500rps per night, very clean double room, basic though. No hot water, it came out if the tap brown, no toilet roll, towel or guest soap. Wifi on terrace and in reception only, no tv but I didn't require it. Staff very helpful and friendly and walking distance to the East Gate of the Taj. Very quiet... More
