“Great stay!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 27, 2012

As usual, the Taj continues to delight. The Gateway hotel in Agra is situated about 3Km from the Taj but the hotel gave us a room with a direct view of the Taj! The hotel has good sized rooms but great furniture. Service is outstanding wit the staff especially reaching out to kids and making them feel at home. In the evenings, the hotel offers a puppet show, a magician who shows tricks to kids and an astrologer - all on the house (tips may be given). The food in the specilty restaurant was great. While we didn't use the pool, it offered a great place to sit around in the late evening. A fantastic stay.

Everything is very nice at the Gateway; the service is as splendid as everywhere we went in India, and the hotel itself is first rate. The view from our room, of the Taj Mahal itself, was stunning, if a little hazy first thing in the morning, although not all rooms have this view. The pool is fairly small, but well-kept and the food is excellent, if a little too westernised for my liking! We didn't stay long enough to take advantage of all the facilities (gym, spa etc...) I did find it a little less personal than the other places we stayed, but it was by far the largest so this is to be expected, and the room was quite cold even without air conditioning on.

This hotel ia good for a Taj visit, though staying longer is not possible. The rooms are small, ok for a single person. It becomes very cramped if staying with a family. The service especially at the restaurant was good. The pool is good, though the gym is small.

The gateway hotel, Agra is very nicely located on Fatehabad Road. Its located on the intersection of Road to taj East Gate , west gate, the mall road. All the visiting places at Agra seems very much within reach considering the traffic conditions encountered in any city in North India.
The hotel is a part of taj group, so you are assured a min acceptable level of hospitality but the experience here was wonderful . All the staff specially the Hotel manager were very courteous and helpful. The food was awsome my wife love the indian cuisine.
the rooms were neat, bathrooms dry and freshening

Room Tip: take taj view rooms on 5th floor you will have wonderful view if you are there on a full moon night

Hotel is located off a busy road and hard to imagine that there is any peace & calm to be had.The Gateway is off a main road but none the less as soon as you come through the gates, you can expect good service and welcoming staff.
The menu could be improved but is perfectly adequate.If you are not keen on masala or weak tea, take your own tea bags!!
Rooms are clean if a little dated but have a good view of Agra if you have a room facing the pool.

Room Tip: Room facing the pool advisable

Welcome was excellent! First night room was tired and did not have a Taj Mahal view, although it did have a glass wall into the bathroom (and thankfully a blind!). 2nd room a lot better furnishings and a normal bathroom! Spa was excellent and the hotel has various little shows with an astrologer, magician, tattoo artist and puppeteers each night in the lobby! Both restaurants are good and so is the bar and room service. The hotel has a very good pool, the only thing letting it down is that it needs better lighting to the changing rooms and they need some attention! Most guests walk around hotel from pool in their robes! Gym needs a bike to finish it off and extra towels in there would be good! Overall we really enjoyed our stay! All staff, even down to shop people (plenty of shops) and the security guards were very friendly and welcoming.
