This hotel is down a winding alley a close easy walk to the Taj Mahal, shops and restaurants. It's staff are friendly, our room was basic and needed a bit of tlc but was functional and we were able to sleep and wash comfortably. The roof restaurant is excellent even if you don't stay the night. Beautiful views across Agras... More

Good, but not for a comfortable stay - location was not appropriate, but I was managing to get a local cab and get around. I found good restaurants nearby and shopping place as well. You may also go for Taj and fort from here , but i would suggest get a cab and dont relay on the local auto rickshaw

We stayed here only 1 night, and the night was terrible actually. We booked the cheapest room, which didn't have AC. Since we were directly under the flat rooftop the room was boiling hot and it didn't cool down. The fan didn't help, it was too hot to sleep. So if you stay here, you can better pay a little...

This hotel was honestly the worst of my trip to India. The fan room is essentially a sauna. We had to upgrade to air con which was pretty dirty - and were not princess travellers here. The rooftop restaurant - probably the only good thing about this place - sure has a view of the Taj but is absolutely filthy.... More

Very dirty hostel which was recommanded by Lonely Planet. The worst think is they have bad bugs!So if you wanna avoid this annoying small animals don't go there. one of the worst places where we stayed at. only good think is that they are very close to Taj Mahal so you don't have to take any taxi or tuk tuk....

This hotel is perfectly located for visiting the Taj and the Agra Fort - the Taj is within a 3 minute walk! The main draw to this hotel is its stunning views of Taj Mahal from its rooftop restaurant. It is absolutely amazing. There is also perfect views of the sunset too. The food in the restaurant is also lovely.... More

If you come to this place, it's for the location (close to south gate) and the view from the terrace. We stayed 2 nights in the rooftop room. It was clean but old and a bit dodgy. The view of the kitchen hasn't been really... Inspiring. We choose not to try their food. However, we grabbed a beer on the... More

This simple hotel was well regarded in Lonely Planet and the pictures of the room gave a clean impression. The promised view from the rooftop is stunning. The rest was hugely disappointing. Room smelled like mold, the walls damp and moldy. The bed was damp due to lack of ventilation. Despite the stunning views a bad hotel.
