Taj Khema : Good or bad?

Hi!

Please suggest whether Taj Khema Hotel (UPSTDC) near the eastern gate of Taj will be a good choice. I will be travelling with my family, and would like to stay for 1-2 nights at Agra. I have heard that vehicles do not go upto the gate of the hotel!, Also, please suggest any other Hotels of similar budget window.

Thanks,

Indranil

Taj Plaza is better than Taj Khema. Taj is visible from three rooms of 2nd floor as well as from the roof top restaurant of Taj Plaza. Normally, traffic is prohibited in this zone except the battery operated cars. However, vehicles for the hotels of this area are allowed.

Go for Taj Resort or Taj Plaza.Hotel Sheela is just 50 mts away from an eastern entrance of the Taj Mahal.

Lots of thanks to Kaimur holidays, Mr Deepak, Mr. Roy and Mr.Rashid for your suggestions. I was going through the reviews of Taj Plaza in Tripadvisor ... sorry to say, they do not speak very positively about the hotel! Any thoughts on that?

Thanks again.

Indranil,

Taj Plaza is a budget hotel. Nothing special in this hotel except the location. Its about 500 mtrs from east gate of Taj. You may walk to Taj whenever you like. You can see Taj from some their rooms also.

Next to this hotel is Oberoi Amar Vilas, Taj is also visible from most of their rooms, its a five star property.

Tough to go there because no vehicles are allowed up to that hotel.
