We stayed here just to visit the Taj. Agra is definitely not worth staying too long, it's dirty and unhygienic. The waiter from Kamal hotel that served us the food late at night was very friendly and helpful, up for a nice chat. The guy at the reception was very kind at first instance, but once he couldnt sell anything... More

Perfect spot for visiting the Taj. The Taj is only at 100 m and the rooftop restaurant has great views of the Taj Mahal (although not the best views in town). The rooms are decent but great value (it's cheap).

We only spent a morning here, as we had left a hotel on the outskirts of Agra at 6am to visit the Taj. This hotel had parking for our autorickshaw abd is very close to the east gate (5 min walk). After visiting the Taj, we came back and had breakfast on their rooftop which has a fabulous view of... More

Location wise the hotel was too good. Room , room service , kitchen staff was good, especially Mr. Sandeep ji, a solution for all problems. He arranged everything for us very smoothly. What a view of Taj Mahal from the rooftop restaurant. A night view of Taj Mahal was splendid.

Location is great- near the south entrance to the taj south gate, in addition there is a panoramic view to the taj area from the roof. My room was poor- I had only a small window ( In the bath room) ) furniture was old and ugly, there were maintenance problems ( as many times in India mid-low budget hotels).... More

We wanted o stay very close to Taj since we had planned to visit it early morning when there are minimal people around. This hotel was a good choice. As compared to rates this hotel was very clean, the staff was co-operative. You won't find the hotel staff trained and following all hotel etiquettes, but we got our purpose solved.... More

Our attempted stay at Kamal Hotel was an absolute shambles. We had taken the train from Pushkar, and as is extremely common in India, the service was running late. To take this in to account we had specified a late arrival time on our booking. We arrived at 2am, with our train putting us 5 hours behind schedule, only to... More

I allow myself a good 3 weeks after my return from India to be able to carefully consider and evaluate before writing a negative review. I pretend to be fair with the experiences I lived and put them into a fair context. From a 22 days trip across Delhi, Rajasthan and Utar Pradesh, staying in a variety of hotels, I... More
