This hotel had obviously been a beauty in the past, but years of neglect has taken its toll. Carpets are worn, frayed and lifting, doors are delaminating and walls are cracked and stained. These are little things, but show no pride in ownership.
The staff are first-rate, the breakfast is adequate (large selection of typical hotel quality) and the rooms are large and well furnished, but the run-down condition just gives the place a rather depressing feel.
They are indeed close to the Taj Mahal, but not close enough to walk, so no distinct advantage there. While this place would be fine in a pinch, I would not recommend to my friends.
