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!

This guest house is the perfect place for backpackers in Agra. While the room I stayed in on the ground floor didn't have a window, it was comfortable and it had a fan keeping it feeling cool. And it was cheap! The staff at the front desk are very friendly and helpful, and will make a breakfast pack for you...
