When we reported this to the staff, they promised to change it by the time we got back at night, but the new sheet was at least as dirty as the first one. At first they showed us the prices... More

Stayed for one night at this place, the lobby and dining area is not bad, however the rooms were average, service was good helpful staff, over all an average experience, the best thing about this hotel is location which is next to western gate of Taj.

Unfortunately this hotel was part of a package deal.

Location of the hotel is good. Room was spacious. We only had breakfast here so can't comment on food. They arranged taxi for sightseeing. Staff was courteous& helpful. So overall experience was really good.
