The rooftop restaurant does indeed have amazing views of the Taj, and serves very good food. The rooms are also good and very clean.
However, the staff here really ruined the stay for us. We had a booking that had not been confirmed in email, but when we turned up the guy found it extremely difficult to tear his eyes away from the tv screen to check whether we had a room.
He then took us up (wordlessly) to the room, and only when prompted did he give us a key, tell us begrudgingly about the shower and told us (wrongly it later turned out) there was free wifi.
Another member of staff then tried to sell us a bus to Jaipur at an inflated price of 5 times other travel agents, claiming this was the only price we would find, and then told me to return the book I had swapped from the hotel collection of old traveller books when he discovered we had booked a bus elsewhere.
Seems like they rely too much on their location and not all important customer service.
