“fine hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 22, 2013

The hotel is fine if you are looking for a very good western standard. Clean, but not very traditional or any further charming touch. Breakfast and food is ok, but I missed butter on the continental buffet.

This modern hotel exceeded all of our expectations, particularly after picking up an amazing on-line deal for our overnight stay.

It’s a big hotel, away from the town centre, yet only a short drive to the magnificent Taj Mahal and other Agra sites. Our room was big and beautiful, with a comfy king bed, lovely ensuite, and all the other facilities you would expect at a five star hotel.

Two minor complaints – my dinner was not what I ordered and took far too long to prepare, and the gym did not open until 7am, which was not much use when I was up and ready at 6am!

Despite this, I would highly recommend this hotel.

The Radission Blu is great value for money in that the rooms were spacious, clean and comfortable and the location perfect for the Taj Mahal. 20 minutes walk to the East Gate along a straight road and another 5 or 10 mins to reach bars and restaurants.

The expensive Western style food and endless Christmas songs brought down our marks for this hotel. Food was 'ok' but not worth the money and you can easily find tasty local cuisine at the fraction of the price down the road. Being December, the hotel had Christmas songs on loop, not something I would expect in India and was a clear attempt of trying to make guests feel comfortable. Personally for us, it showed the hotel had no character and tried a little too hard whereas we would have been happier if it simply was in keeping with where we were....India.

We had been travelling in India for a while, and had stayed in around 8 hotels of varying quality by the time we reached Agra for our stay in this hotel. It's very Western, but to be very honest we were relieved to know that we could have some home comforts. It's a modern hotel with great facilities - the breakfast is very good and the restaurants and bars were excellent too. We'd definitely recommend it as a safe, clean, comfortable spot to rest your head in Agra.

We stayed at the Raddisson Blu for just one night in December. We were looking for a hotel close to the Taj Mahal so that we could save time on commuting, since we had only a day in Agra. We chose Raddisson Blu mainly for its proximity to Taj Mahal. The hotel is barely 2 minutes from the main entrance of The Taj Mahal and the hotel provides a free to and fro shuttle (it was in a strange vehicle tho) for its guests

Check-in Experience - We had a prior reservation but the front desk was way too slow to complete the formalities. We had driven down from Delhi and were exhausted. It took us about 25 minutes to check-in.

General Look - The hotel is large and clean, and has a corporate/modern hotel look to it as opposed to the more ornate heritage hotels

Room - Room was very good. Fairly large and with all the amenities one looks for. The bathroom was also large and the shower was great! For some reason, there was an alarm clock in the room that went off suddenly in the middle of the night - very annoying! With 'wake up call' facility and mobile phone alarms, I am not sure why they had a (faulty) alarm clock in the room.

Food - The low point of the stay - the dinner buffet which we had was quite mediocre for the price they charge for it (Rs.850 for residents and Rs.1250 for guests). Some of the stuff seemed stale even. Guests arriving for a late dinner had to make do with not so warm food and last scrapes of food (they didn't replenish the dishes). The eats at the bar during happy hours were also not up to the mark. Breakfast buffet was much better and we enjoyed that meal during our stay.

Service - While the service staff was trying to be helpful, the lack of training was quite apparent. The restaurant staff especially was hardly attentive and some of them had trouble understanding English too. A tea lounge is a good concept but with a bunch of inattentive staff, its not inviting.

Final Word - If all you want is a clean and comfortable room for a few nights at a hotel close to Taj Mahal, this is it. But if you are looking to spend more time at the hotel and want to be 'wowed', opt for some other 5 Star hotel.

As my title says, Great staff, super clean hotel, awesome bathrooms and terrific food. We went with very low expectations but were quite impressed with the staff, accommodations and food. I would strongly recommend this place if you are a creature of comfort.

This is a large western style hotel that is built to the Radisson formula. The plus side is that it is predictable in the level of its service. On the negative side it is impersonal compared to the other heritage hotels we had stayed at in India. We chose it for its good proximity to the Taj Mahal and the Fort. It is also close to shopping and some good restaurants. Compared to Radisson in the States or Europe it was a little tatty in some minor ways eg the carpet in our room was very badly stained and the bed side tables were water marked and knocked. There was a full choice of English language news and TV shows. Wifi in the rooms. Breakfast provided a wide choice of foods. One small negative was that I planned to use the steam room so I turned it on and then sat there for quite a while wondering why it wasn't coming on. Finally I went and found a staff person who told me that it was out of order and had been so all day. No-one had thought to put a notice on the door that it was out of order. I felt this omission was a bit unusual and an irritation to me as a guest.
We only stayed one night and the hotel met all our needs. It had the softest bed in all of the hotels 912) we stayed in India.
