We've spent 2 nights in Taj Plaza which we had booked on recommendation. Overall, the hotel is OK but its location makes it all. Indeed it offers the opportunity to reach Taj Mahal East Gate walking...then you just have to queue! Staff @Taj Plaza is welcoming and deliver a great first impression. Beyond this first feeling we have been disappointed... More

We've stayed in some really excellent budget accommodation in India. Taj Plaza does not fall into that category. It is located 5 minutes' walk from the Taj Mahal but that is really the only thing it has going for it. Upon arrival the lady at reception and another member of staff had an argument in Hindi which resulted in an... More

This place is really close the east gate of taj mahal. It has a rooftop restaurant with a great view although on winter it gets very foggy and cold to sit there. Wifi works well in the hall. The rooms where clean. The staff is friendly but they should not shout to each other during the night or early in... More

The hotel is in a great location for visiting the Taj early, however be aware that due to pollution restrictions, taxis are not able to drive straight to the hotel and there is therefore a 500m walk. Staff were friendly and the restaurant was open until 9pm which was useful after arriving late. The sheets were unclean and there were... More

Dirty, rusty bathrooms, stained sheets, unapologetic staff, disappointing experience. There are much better options in Agra for the same money and similar location. The only good thing about this hotel is the location, very close to the East gate of the Taj Mahal.

Good for a days halt at agra. Location is good. The hotel administration is quite unprofessional. We had booked well in advance and also made the payment, but on arrival they made us wait for half an hour to allot a room. The rooms are extremely ordinary. Some of the plug points don't work. The roof top restaurant is a... More

The only good thing about the hotel is the location, everything else is useless. The check in was lengthy, our room wasn't ready and so we had to wait, the rooms weren't clean, the water wasn't hot and the staff were unattentative and noisy when we were attempting to sleep. Admittedly the view from the terrace is beautiful which is... More
