I stayed two nights at Hotel Sakura. The staff were quite friendly and helpful. It is in a pretty good location as it is close to the main bus stand, which is useful if travelling by bus, or if you are going to Fatephur Sikri. It also has a pretty good food, and they take precautions to prevent travellers from getting sick.
The service was generally pretty good. However, when I arrived there was some confusion, as I was not sure whether the hotel's free pick up service was going to get me (as it stops around 10pm and my train was scheduled to arrive at 9.55pm), as they did not reply to my email.
Our room was spacious and comfortable, albeit not completely clean. The shower was pretty good and hot, and the staff were kind in leaving the hot water on for longer to enable me to have another shower. It was freezing cold in our room however. From late Dec to early Jan, Agra is often covered in fog, which means temperatures do not exceed single digits. The hotel had no central heating, so for our whole stay there I was very cold.
However, for the price, it was not bad. For most of the year, you will not have the problem with the cold. Recommended for a traveller on a budget who is not fussy.
