I thought this hotel seemed somewhat nice from the reviews, so I decided to book for a night stay with them while in Agra. When i first stepped in, i thought - those who complained must have been expecting a hotel worth 500 bucks, rather than be contented with what they are paying for.
Well... the hotel is near to the Taj Mahal and Shilp gram (where you buy tickets) - so location wise is a A+. But, like Ramesh has mentioned, there were bed bugs in the room - specifically on my bed and the cushions. I ended up with a terrible allergy reaction for the night - I could only sit on the couch and not be able to sleep back on the bed again, of course not counting that I had to take my meds (thank god I had some). The sheets were not so clean of course (maybe that's why the bugs)
Wouldn't recommend staying here because of the bugs, perhaps find another hotel with a cleaner bed to stay. Can't believe I got charged for the wifi as well - a little ridiculous to me, I say, though the wifi was strong.
