Lovely people, welcoming atmosphere, basic but good value room. Piece de resistance is lovely rooftop restaurant with decent veggie curry and fabulous views of the Taj. When we stayed there was the bonus of a Bollywood movie being filmed with director, producer, etc, basing themselves in the hotel giving a festival feel!

100 meters from the south entrance of Taj Mahal. Genuine indian feel all around. +Bed sheets and towels are clean +The staff is smiley -Because the morning fog the sunrise is hardly enjoyable on all 3 mornings, don’t book this if only going for the view. -Very noisy area, can’t sleep at night. The heat in unbearable, the vents are... More

Great view from rooftop restaurant of Taj Mahal. I suppose that was the best thing about this hotel. Don't choose the tandoori chicken, it was terrible. Don't think the manager was very obliging about changing the breakfast menu a little, especially since we ate a good few meals there. Until we found the food was better outside.

We pre-booked two nights at Kamal as we expected to arrive in Agra in the middle of the night. We got our 'deluxe room' at a discount rate of 1150R through an offer on Cleartrip. The hotel has an amazing location, you can walk to the Taj Mahal in under 5 minutes, and you have an amazing view of the... More

I booked a luxury room aand wanted to be close to the Taj. The first thing I noticed was that my sheets were not clean. They were quickly changed for cleaner if equally grubby sheets and pillowcases. This was done in such a matter of fact way that it almost made me feel guilty for expecting clean sheets. Though I... More

Clean and safe. Nice view from the rooftop patio. I was scared of the monkeys that were hungry for our food and had climbed up to the roof. The waiter scared them away. We watched a wedding parade by at night. It was a good experience.

We paid 2250 INR + tax for a so-called De Luxe room. The room is sort of what you expect at this price- not luxury but clean and functioning. Our room, 203, was next to the kitchen which caused a fair amount of noise till 1130pm or so. It was chilly outside, but warm enough in the room, so fortunately... More

By the time we arrived in Agra, we'd been in the country for quite a few weeks and even then the level of filthiness in this hotel shocked us. While the administrative side of things ran smoothly - the email arrangement of a tuk tuk pick up from the train station went without a hitch - the room we had... More
