We were on our family tour in UP & Uttarakhand. We reached Agra by train and took tax to hotel. Railway station is approx. 8-10 km from hotel. Surrounding area is very quiet and peaceful. We checked in and preferred to rest. We could easily see Taj Mahal from window.
Taj Mahal is on walking distance and took 5-10 min. We entered from Eastern gate hence. there was very less rush. However from western gate there was some rush. After seeing Taj mahal, we came back hotel.
It is budget hotel with some amenities like Spa. Hotel has excellent interiors both in room as well as other areas like stairs, lobby etc. They have put very nice pictures and idols to add beauty. The room was quite spacious. It was neat & clean. Toilets were also clean. Room has almira to keep luggage & clothes. Water in toilet is very bad taste. Some rickshaw driver told us that this hotel water is very bad. Restaurant is attached on ground floor and has some nice food. Staff was also helpful. It has terrace top restaurant to see Taj and enjoy food. But we avoided it due to mosquitoes. Day time it can be better enjoyed. You can also see ITC hotel adjoining this hotel. Being VIP gate, this area is quite peaceful. At night the hotel was enlightened and looking very beautiful.
Overall we liked the stay.
