“Nice room good location but hopeless restaurant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 3, 2012

Relatively new hotel with rather nice rooms albeit on the small side with ugly view of street.
The rooftop view of the Taj Mahal & the close proximity are a bonus but don't eat there despite the pleasant setting.
Food, drinks service hopeless, + the night we were there the water feature flooded most of it & the staff didn't know how to cope & we got flooded!
I'd advise to stay at the hotel but eat elswhere.Reasonably priced.

Room Tip: Street view is unattractive.

A pretty good option if you are not looking for luxury and great ambience. This is a professionally managed hotel with small but clean rooms. The breakfast is decent. But the best feature is the proximity to the Taj - only a few walking minutes away.

Hotel Taj Resorts is very professionally run and the staff are both very helpful and friendly. The location is good being very easy walking distance to the East Gate of the Taj Mahal (although the road to the hotel is therefore sometimes closed and your taxi may not be able to drop you off at the hotel, in which case call the hotel and they will pick you up.) The rooms are clean and modern, the rooftop pool lovely and the rooftop restaurant very nice. Great value!

Second leg of my journey was spent here to view the taj mahal which was walking distance. I was received with a nice welcome drink and greeted with friendly smiling faces. The room was clean comfortable and spacious. The food was very nice on rooftop and nice atmosphere. The intranet connection was very fast which I found hard to find in India . I would stay here again.

We thought this hotel was great value. It really is only a 5-10 minute walk to the Taj Mahal and you can see it from the lovely roof terrace which served fabulous currys. The rooms are not spectacular but were clean and comfortable with all necessary amenities and the staff were excellent.

We found that there weren't many well rated hotels to stay in Agra, but the Hotel Taj Resort met our requirements. The room was fine, the pool was nice and clean (although cold!), staff were all pleasant. We brought our ticket (750 rupees) for the Taj at reception which was handy. In the evening we asked to get a taxi to take us to see the Taj at sunset which was pretty, and then we got up to leave at 6am the next day to see it at sunrise. The hotel is not far from the East Gate entrance, you could walk, although we got a rickshaw. There was free internet in the lobby, which was useful. Breakfast was quite disappointing as it was so basic. There is construction work going on around the hotel (like the rest of India it seems!). For one night this was fine and comfortable - which is all you really need if you are visiting the Taj.

This hotel is very well run, clean, tidy, modern: it has a roof top swimming pool. The breakfasts were excellant. You are probably the nearest hotel to the Taj: it's a few hundred yards away down the tree lined avenue. Unfortunately, whether night or day the avenue is full of hassle (touts) - they are almost aggressive so we bought nothing and I had to stop myself thumping one of them.
