The location of the hotel is very near to the iconic Taj Mahal. The hotel is a old property with good size rooms. The food is good and tasty but the breakfast is average. The tariffs are quite reasonable so it is a good place to stay in the vicinity of the tourist attractions.

Very friendly staff! Service was quick and easy. One of my friends got sick the last day and it was seamless to do a very late checkout. Really glad we chose the hotel near the city center. Massage was also super great at the hotel spa!
