It's a good and cheap place with friendly staff. I could really recommend this place! It's close to Taj Mahal, walking distance. It's a little bit hot in the night, but the beds are comfortable. The place has a nice rooftop and a restaurant.

Clean and good place to stay in Agra. The food is very good. The stuff is kind and helpful. They will give you tips on where to go and what to see. Also listen to them about when to go and see Taj Mahal.

We arrived late and were able to walk in and book a double room with a fan and ensuite really efficiently. It's a family run place and they really work hard for their guests by keeping the place immaculate and cooking fresh yummy food in the Bob Marley restaurant. They are able to give advice and help on every aspect...

This hotel is great. It's cheap, so it's good for the budget traveller, it's a very short walk to the East Gate of the Taj Mahal. The staff are friendly and helpful, and the food is delicious and reasonably priced. They have air conditioned en-suite rooms, which are great for taking a nap to escape the mid-day heat. Highly recommended!
