“2 night stay for Taj visit”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 3, 2014

We had a 2 nigt stay here,which was booked as part of a Taj trip from Goa by our Goa travel co.
The location is ideal for visiting Taj and as far as a 3 star hotel goes it is a reasonable standard.Cant really comment if it represents value for money as it was included for us in an overall tour price.
Couldn't really decide if this was a hotel that had seen better days,or if it was one that the current owners were trying to improve to return to its better days.
On the plus side it had good security,helpful staff esp the young lad who worked the 1st floor bar.Breakfast was ok and waiting staff helpful and cheery.The staff rely on tips and was a bit over obvious at times outwits the bar and breakfast staff.
The down side of this stay for us was having 3 rooms in the space of 2 nights!On arrival we found our first room was uncleaned.There were matches on the floor,hairs on the bedsheets and in general the bedding was pretty stained.They did offer to clean when we complained but we insisted on a move as the window glass vibrated from the poolside music due to be poorly fitted.We were moved to a higher floor room which was an improvement although nothing special,but the bedding and floor were clean although decoration pretty tired.On our 2nd night we were moved again,this time by the hotel as they had a problem with their plumbing and were working on it close to our room.This 3rd room was by far the pick of the bunch and if given this room on arrival would probably have influenced us to give better ratings in our report.I don't see us returning to Agra as we have visit the Taj and the fort,so probably will have no need to return to this hotel to see if it is on the up or decline from its present state.

Found this hotel on the Tourism counter and forced the taxi driver to take us there since it is centrally located and near all attractions in Agra , specially the Taj Mahal. Taxi drivers would try to lure you to other hotels but you have to insist on going to the hotel you want. Its neat and clean and has descent bathrooms with bathtubs etc. Nice to relax in a hot-tub after a tiring day outside. Made our experience in Agra really comfortable....Kudos to the staff and management. They used to call it Hotel Agra Ashok when I had been there.

The hotel is centrally located and everything is accessible from here easily.We booked a deluxe room which was very clean and spacious. The hotel offers parking space also if your driving down. Overall a good experience.

The Yamuna View is centrally located barely 3 kms from the railway station and one km from Sadar Bazaar. It is quite near to the Taj Mahal and is easilly accessible since it is situated on the main road with two access. The rooms are nicely done and the furniture is also adequate, making the room look spacious. The staff is also very helpful and take good care of the guests.

The swimming pool is also located at a vantage point and the bar situated near it is also a welcome feature.

The only sore point was the food which is not upto the mark and is slightly overpriced.

Room Tip: Rooms on the ground floor are preferable because of the convenient access and nice view of the garde...

Nice, clean hotel located on The Mall. Easily accessible to all tourist locations. Staff are cordial.
The Chinese Restaurant is the attraction of the City of Agra and is worth having a meal. One had to ask for hot water to bathe as it was not available in the wash room.

Room Tip: Avoid spending time in the lobby or reception area as the central AC is not very effective

We had a chance to visit Agra recently and we stayed in this hotel as we were 3 families we booked 4 rooms. As it was last minute booking we got only 4 twin bed room though it was advertised as 'double room', in one of the room light did not work and in another lock came off but as we were there to have fun our fun was not spoiled as housekeeping staff and reception and room service was all excellent and they attended to all the problems and did their best to fix it and keep us in good spirits. All in all average rooms but staff friendliness and efficiency made our stay very comfortable and enjoyable
There is a child play area/room in the lobby which is good addition given that there is not too much open space for children but swimming pool is good sized and was quite clean for this time of the year
Chinese restaurant is serves good food at very reasonable prices and is a must if you stay here

Room Tip: ensure room had double bed or twin beds

Wanted a place near Taj Mahal to stay for a night. This place was in close proximity to Taj.
A decent hotel with excellent food (Chinese is really good here).
Service is prompt in this hotel. Liked the pool and bar ambience. Enjoyed swimming in evening.
Entrance lounge is well maintained and one can sit with guests.
Although it is a small hotel and view from outside would be deceptive, the inside of the hotel is well maintained and a decent place to have a comfortable stay.

Room Tip: No problem in rooms 110 & 111.
