There seems to be a lack of good mid-range options in Agra - many people visit the Taj Mahal on a daytrip from Delhi, which might be a better option, as Agra itself is a smelly, dirty, busy place without much charm. Rooms at The Retreat - a bland conference hotel, not the boutique hotel described by Lonely Planet -...

At first glance this looked a good hotel, the reception at check-in the guy should try and smile as he had a face like fizz, the rooms were spacious and clean but the air con was very noisey, my biggest complaint was the service in the restaurant having ordered two starters, two mains, my wife had her starter and I...

Clean and spacious rooms with good breakfast. Staff were very friendly and the location is good. It is a luxury hotel for a very reasonable price. Hotel is close to Taj Mahal and added advantage for those staying in this hotel is they can access Taj Mahal through the VIP entrance gate which is very less crowded. It has a...

Stayed here for 2 nights. This hotel is located not far from the main attractions in Agra. The standard room was spacious, air-conditioned, clean and tidy. The staff was friendly. There was free wifi, though a bit slow. The breakfast was good, with various choices of food available (including boiled egg, fried egg, sausage, cereals, bread and butter, orange juice,...

Great location close to the Taj Mahal! We arrived late in the evening so upon arriving we arranged with the tour guide for a car to take us to the Taj in the morning and then after breakfast and checkout they also took us to Agra Fort and then on to Jaipur. Price was very reasonable. We ate breakfast and...

It's clean and has all adequate services. The way they dealt with arrival and departure is very good. The night party music was off putting as were traveling with kids. The pool was clean and cool. We did not stay in the room too much.

Our room was spacious and clean. The hotel staff were eager to help and friendly. The hotel was a good size. We did not want to stay in any western hotels, and preferred smaller hotels (and did NOT want or need 4-5 star hotels). We wanted to experience the Indian culture, but wanted something clean and quiet after the busy...

Our room was comfortable, bathroom and shower ok, WiFi was rubbish. If you eat in the restaurant order something hot, it's a bit dicey using the buffet, food only lukewarm. Staff helpful and friendly. Not a bad place to stay

We had a nice stay in the hotel. They want to be luxury, which seems to be on the first look, but especially our room was not in best condition... everything was made to look good, but the quality of the furniture got lost. So we could not close our bathroom door or looked expired. Staff is nice. All in...

Once a month I use to stay in this hotel. Very cooperative staff. Restaurant is good, but don't have much options. Breakfast is good. They don't have a fitness centre which was a drawback for me.
