I found the staff relatively helpful and they helped me book my onward journey to Varanasi. My room was quite clean although it was missing a bin. Pretty good wi-fi. The biggest drawcard of the place is it's proximity to the Taj which you can see from the rooftop restaurant. The Taj is about 500 metres walk down the road... More

There are many hostels around the Taj Mahal and they are all more or less the same. Small, dirty, smelly rooms with hardcore beds, but very close to the Taj. All with a rooftop restaurant with nice views of the Taj. We stayed at this place because it was pretty cheap (500 rupee for a double bed with private bathroom).... More

Although the price of the room was cheap, the bed and room looked unclean and with bed smell that almost ruined my impression of Agra and beautiful Taj Mahal. I just had squeezed myself into a sleeping bag for the night. If you care about a clean bed, you'd think about it.

Don't get room on ground floor, lots of bed bugs, which we managed to take with us. And stuff smiled and told it's alright after we show it to them. Better to avoid this place. Good view to taj from restaurant indeed.

Shanti Lodge is budget accommodation with a view of the Taj and I cannot fault our stay here. We looked at four rooms before we settled on one on the top floor next to the restaurant. The room was spacious, had AC, hot water, TV and view of the Taj and although it was next door to the restaurant we... More

The best part is you can have an unhindered view of Taj from its rooftop all day long. Only half a kilometers away from the south gate of Taj the hotel is located amidst hustle-and-bustle of a busy market area Rooms are not small but certainly not well-lit or decored. Hotel attendants are good and co-operative. Food is good but... More

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
