This hotel is at prime location of Agra. The Western gate of Taj Mahal is at a walkable distance from this hotel. There are lots of shops, restaurants, ATMs next to this hotel. This one was a memorable trip for me as I surprised my Mom with Taj Mahal visit as a birthday gift. She traveled by flight first time... More

Ray of Maya is the best choice if you are thinking on visiting Agra. Mayank (the owner) is friendly and he helps you in everything you need. my friend and I needed a train ticket and a plane to go to Delhi and to fly to Varanasi and he managed it without much additional cost. during rain he gave us...

Clean hotel, spacious rooms, well located (although hidden away), helpful staff and great value. Not easy in Agra. Wifi could be better but its no deal-breaker. We didn't sample the food at the hotel.so can't comment. all in all, Nice work.

Ray of Maya is a good value hotel at a rather convenient location. It is close to a park that will lead you to the West Gate of the Taj and a major road. The room was clean and tidy. It's not easy to find, you have to follow a tiny dirt road. Ask around if you're unsure where to... More

Great value for money, clean well equipped bedrooms with cable TV. Very friendly staff who helped us arrange onwards transport. Nice restaurant. The only negative is the dirt track to reach the hotel, but this is a minor downside compared to what the hotel offers on the whole. Only a 5 minute walk to the Taj.

Perfect location by the west gate entrance to the Taj Mahal (5 minute walk to Taj). Set back from the main road so it is quiet. (Note: hard to find entrance; it's down the tiny side street behind the "tea'se me" shop.) Clean room, A/C, excellent wifi, in-room fridge. Lovely rooftop restaurant with live music is across the street at... More

We read on the hotel website that they offered free pick up so we emailed them the night before to tell them the arrival time of our train. The train arrived on time and someone was there to pick us up! Perfect. They took us straight to the hotel and helped us check in – I can't remember the driver's... More

Ray of Maya has no board outside, and is supposed to be some sort of associated hotel with the famous Maya hotel in Agra. It is down a tiny little muddy street off the main road, and can be pretty hard to locate. It is walking distance from the Taj Mahal, so that's a definite plus- especially for travellers like...

When you reach at 2am in the morning in Agra and wonder where the hell the hotel is, since there are no sign boards and you have to ask all the sleepy weird people around who eye you up and down as though you have just descended from another planet. Walking slowly through a dirty messed up side road, there... More

How scary is it, when a rickshaw driver knocks onto your room door, demanding more money? We were a group of 3, who arrived in Agra in two batches: first me, and then my other two friends. Malik, the hotel's rickshaw driver, picked me up, and then offered to do a tour of the city, as my friends were arriving... More
