This property is synonymous with HUGE rooms and bigger bathrooms. Loved the use of red bricks in the rooms, it gives a very royal vibe to the place. Also learnt the hotel is a heritage property used to belong to one of the Maharajas of Agra. Historically, many important personalities have visited the place. They have restored it well. The food can still be improved. Look out for the puppet plays in the evenings and the gazal sessions in the restaurant at night.
This place is apt for those who want a whiff of the royal life at affordable rates.
