“Great family trip”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013 via mobile

We spent only one night here during April. The AC worked fine, the room was good: we had enough space for both kids. I can recommend the so-called business rooms (free upgrade, thanks Mr Himanshu).
The buffet was adequate, not the best Indian food I have tasted, but fresh and well-presented and there were enough European dishes for my fussy children. Pool was small but good and even had some shade (unusual for Indian hotels).

I would definitely stay here again: the room we had at the Trident some time ago was so small that we had to climb over the beds to move around.

This was our second visit to this Hotel and found it to be even a better experience. It was our parents anniversary and the hotel had arranged for a lovely Bouquet and and awesome cake in the room as we checked In. Not only our rooms were upgraded to business class, but every one in the guest relations team is very warm and accomodating which makes for a great stay. The food is great as well and this hotel is definately recommended for any kind of travellers.

I booked a standard room, and selected the Business class e-upgrade which was honoured.

We managed to get an early check in, and Business class meant we could get a free breakfast on every morning of the stay. The hotel doesn't seem to use the club lounge, instead offering Business class guests, a full breakfast buffet in the coffee shop and an evening happy hour in the main bar.

As we stayed during the Holi celebrations, we decided to eat in the hote since most restaurants were closed for the evening. The buffet dinner was extensive with a great selection of dishes.

Overall I'd recommend this hotel for Agra sightseeing, it's 300m to the Taj ticket counter, and then you can get a courtesy shuttle to theTaj itself.. Just walk outside the hotel to find a great tuk-tuk driver for the other Agra sights.

There are few things that make an experience become great rather than good. Radisson Hotel is the same as all the other chain of hotels with the same lounge, spa, rooms, etc. But the thing I liked the most was the way they handled the guests. I actually booked a room for me and my wife for 2 days. While checking in, the Manager (Heena) asked me if we were at Agra on a normal visit or a special occasion. When we told her that it was our Anniversary trip, she quickly changed the room to the one with Taj Mahal's view (to make the day romantic). On top of that, she even sent us a cake in the night to celebrate the occasion. Little things like these make your trip memorable and make the experience a great one. Hope they follow the same standard in hospitality for all the travelers.

Room Tip: Ask for a room which is in 4th floor. These rooms have the best view of Taj.

The hotel is rather convinient due to its walking distance fron the Taj East Gate. For the rest it is modest compared to other of the same standard. The courtesy of the staff is out of question, like in any other place in India, but two thinks need to be improved:
- the level of the noise at the entrance, vast space filles with music like in a discoteque
- the restaurant. This huge room has a poor lighting with very high celing and is populated by an army of peaple supposed to care about your table but in reality the result is that you have to call them and you never know who is really the one responsible.

Room Tip: Higher roons are suggested

The hotel itself is nice enough, but the loud music in the lobby and restaurant is infuriating. The room was comfortable but: (1) the food at the barbecue and room service was inedible (2) breakfast was chaotic and definitely not five star standard (3) they don't let young people use the gym, and they give you five different answers as to the age at which gym use is permitted (4) there were disgusting bugs in the pool which the staff didn't notice until we pointed them out (5) men's jacuzzi wasn't working. Staff are generally helpful, except as regards the gym use issue where they were just stubborn.

Room Tip: Choose a business class room

Driving from Agra airport to the hotel wasn t long. Through the crazy busy streets of Agra. The hotel seems like an oasis! The security checked the car, so I felt very safe in the hotel. The breakfast needs to improve. Not a lot effort is put into the presentation, no fresh juices, the cakes , donuts and choco pops tasted old...But it s very good considering how it is surrounded! The bed was a bit too soft. And he other thing that was a bit scary, they sprayed poison in the middle of the people against the moscitos. Well maybe better than moscitos, ... but overall definately a recommendation. The staff was superfriendly! And also close to the Taj Mahal. Lots of european tourist groups stayed there.

Room Tip: i had a nice room facing the grill and swimming pool

Also the spray which is used is not at all poisonous but definitely care should be taken and not sprayed when the guests are at the main porch of the hotel.
