Our Experience with Hotel Shanti Lodge was just terrible. There was no management at all. Rooms were dirty, without basic needs such as TV set top box, remote, dustbin etc. The bathroom fittings was like nothing. They have provide us a mug to take bath after several requests. There was no service at all. We can't advice anybody to go... More

We arrived in Agra late at night at about 11.45, most places close at 12, we found the 'Shanti Lodge' and unfortunately did not have time to find anywhere else. We were unwelcomed by a incredibly rude guy at the counter, who was not at all friendly, he took us up to a room he had available, and was disgusting,... More

We stayed here in Jan-14. Its very Close to the south gate of Taj Mahal. Rooms were small, but Clean. Bathroom fittings were not good enough. Staffs are friendly. Best thing about this hotel is the Roof-Top-Restaurant. You can get Beer on order. Best view of Taj from roof top restaurant. A good choice for back-packers.

All I needed when I was staying in Agra was a room to sleep in, because I what I was really there for was, of course, the Taj Mahal! And the view from the rooftop restaurant of this hotel does not disappoint! Also, it is just a short walk from the hotel to the Taj, making this a budget traveler... More

This hotel has the best rooftop view of the Taj Mahal. You can see the entire thing!! The rooms are also reasonably priced. Single 300, 500 or 700 rupees; Double 500, 700, or 900 rupees. They also have free WiFi and hot showers. The owner is very friendly.

Undoubtedly, this hotel has one of the best views of the Taj from its roof-top restaurant. The view not only means a glimpse of the Taj, but a clear, tip-to-toe view of this grand monument. From its roof top, with a cup of hot 'masala chai', watch the mist lift and the ethereal beauty of the Taj emerge with its... More

Budget accomadation just a short walk from the Taj Mahal. Excellent view of the Taj from the rooftop terrace. Would have been great at sunrise if it wasn't cloudy, which it was when I was there. Rooms could have been better but ok for the money. Staff were friendly. However, the WiFi was down whilst I was there and they... More
