We stayed 1 night at the hotel. The view over the Taj from the rooftop was pretty nice. The rooms were clean and it was quiet at night which isnt a regular thing in hotels in India. Breakfast and dinner were good but the staff didnt speak good English which was a pity. However I would reccommend this place. Its... More

This place is very close to the Taj Mahal and you can see it from the hotel roof. However this really doesn't excuse everything else. We booked ahead by phone only to find that when we arrived, on a late train, they had no record and it was only by a stroke of luck that they had a room. Turned... More

I stayed in one of the more expensive rooms after reading poor reviews on the the cheaper rooms. Found mine to be ok though and it is only literally around the corner from south gate so is really good for a early morning start. Stay here to watch the sun go down as you marvel at the beautiful Taj Mahal...... More

Amazing view from the roof of the taj. Peaceful rooftop restaurant with very good food. Rooms were pretty standard for budget accommodation hotel. Staff was very friendly and attempted to help in any way they could. Between staff and amazing view, I'd stay here again next time I'm in Agra

Good news: located right by Taj Mahal, and good views from rooftop. BUT, this is a very basic hotel. Charmless welcome. Grubby generally, and specifically stained sheets (which they insisted were clean) ragged towels, mucky bedspread. Well it's cheap, and you get what you pay for; we'll be glad to be long gone in the morning!

The view was the best thing about this hotel. On the website it looked modern and clean, but the first room we were offered was neither really...very small, a window that didn't shut and bedding that could have looked better. The tuk tuk driver sent to pick us up from the station was a friend I assume...quite disappointed that we... More

We stayed two rather chilly nights in a deluxe room. The room itself was basic, but had hot water and extra blankets provided on request. This place really is all about the amazing location - just two minutes from the Taj south gate which means you can beat the crowds with an early morning visit. We booked train tickets and... More

Stayed here one night to a decent price. Had to ask for clean sheets (new ones really not clean either) and extra blankets. No hot water. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Ok for one night. Not more.

We enjoyed our time at this hotel, despite the cold weather and heavy fog of Agra in December. Excellent location right next to the Taj Mahal, friendly and helpul staff, and a rooftop restaurant with great views of the Taj Mahal. If you're looking for somewhere affordable, good value for money and well located in Agra, look no further. This... More

I didn't have a comfortable stay in terms of the room itself but I will say that the location is great and the rooftop restaurant has an amazing view of the Taj Mahal (when it's not foggy). Bed was hard, the sheets and towels didn't appear to be clean, and there were spiders and webs in the bathroom and corners... More
