“Radisson Agra”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2013

This is a very modern hotel built in the not so modern city of agra, We stayed for 2 nights in the hotel and got upgraded to business class which was a nice gesture, the food in the buffet was very good, dinner being better than the breakfast as the milk at breakfast was a bit off but these things happen.

The staff were very friendly and polite and not as in your face as in other hotels in India which was nice.

There is a small pool and a pool side bbq happens at night.

The bar is the worst part about the hotel tho, it claims to be a sports bar and it does have a tv showing sports, but the music being played in the bar was a bit of a joke, it was pumping out techno at ear-bleeding levels and it was not a nice environment to unwind in. most people seemed to be having one drink and then leaving.

Best off having a drink in your room

We only stayed one night, but it was a very nice room. They upgraded us to business class and we even had a peek-a-boo view of the Taj Mahal. We didn't dine at the restaurant, but they do provide complimentary bottled water and we took advantage of a late check out of 2pm after spending the morning visiting the Taj and Agra Fort.

This is a very modern hotel, doesn´t fill like you are in India, we stay in a suite that was amazing, very big and beautifull, with 2 bathrooms and a big tube, the personal is very kind and helpfull, if you can´t afford the Oberoi Amarvilas this is an excellent choice and very near the Taj Mahal.

We stayed for 2 nights in Oct 2013 and found the facility, the service and overall ambiance pretty good. Food in all the restaurants was excellent. The hospitality in Daawat-e-Nawaab was great. The room comfort was good but we would have loved a room with a better view. Some of the rooms do not have a great view outside. Proximity to Taj is a great plus. On a good weather day, one can walk to Taj. Overall very good experience and a good value for money.

Room Tip: Please ask for pool side view rooms...

The hotel was almost the closest one to the Taj from the East Gate. an easy stroll down in the morning to view this incredible monument.

Heena from guest relations was fantastic as were all of the team. Would definitely recommend this hotel as a great value option.

Room Tip: the upgrade to business class rooms is well worth it

We stayed for three nights , good, in the restaurant the have coffee mugs, I asked for regular cup and soccer first the waiter refused, but on insisting he got it,they serve two half liter water in the room. Which is not sufficient for Indian travelers, they should give at least two large bottles.

We stayed at the Radisson Blu due to it's proximity to the Taj (our main reason for visiting Agra) and were not disappointed. The rooms were lovely - very spacious, with ridiculously comfy beds and great facilities including free WiFi. We had one double room and one triple. The triple was a twin room with an extra bed brought in. The extra bed was not to the same standard as the existing ones - it was still comfy and suited us fine, but do be aware of that if you're booking a triple room.

The pool and spa are also great - we enjoyed poolside drinks from the bar and I treated myself to a lovely massage which was excellent value, as well as indulging in a sauna and plenty of pool dips (towels provided)!

We ate at the hotel both nights we were there. Once at the poolside BBQ which was nice, but nothing special, and once at the Indian restaurant, which was delicious and definitely recommended. My only slight issue with it was the "host" who kept coming over to the table to share anecdotes and talk about the food. Fine, but her interrupted us mid-conversation several times and it wasn't needed - the food spoke for itself.

We took breakfast once and the buffet was good value (we didn't include it in our room rate so paid extra) but the a la carte menu not so much - go for the buffet every time! Everything was tasty though, and there was a varied choice.

Price-wise, the Radisson is obviously more expensive than India in general, as it's a very plush hotel. However, coming from the UK I still found it to be excellent value and would not quibble anything about the price.

All the staff were very professional and the security is very tight. I'd definitely stay here again if I return to Agra.
