It is sad to see so many people writing poor reviews of this place. This is an inexpensive hotel, and the reality is that you get what you pay for. Yes, this hotel is old and humid. The bathrooms are not great. However, the staff was very helpful and does the best it can with the accommodations it has. We...

Very close to the South gate (less than 75m), this is a very old property and hence is a good budget option for backpackers and those walking on a tightrope! Clean bed, room is what they can offer but do bargain a good deal as their main negotiation point is the proximity to the Taj, the dome and the southern...

Hotel Raj is a very average hotel in Agra and the rooms are not very clean. The hotel has a average restaurant and food served is also not great. The hotel service staff is also not very helpful. The only advantage that this hotel offers is the fact the Taj Mahal south gate is just a two minutes walking distance...
