I booked Hotel Sheela based on reviews. People said it wasn't bad, it just wasn't a fancy hotel. I can handle bad. It wasn't bad,it was horrific. It's a pain to get to because you have to get a taxi or whatever all the way there until a certain point where no cars are allowed past. So from there you... More

Indeed you get what you pay for! The rooms are very dirty and the food at the restaurant is really nothing special. The only plus is that you are so close the East entrance of the Taj. However if you plan on catching the sunrise while admiring the Taj Mahal, get your tickets the day before because the ticket office... More

I travel for the experience of another way of life, so I don't want to stay in US hotels or their like. The Sheela has all the advantages of being Indian but I was fine eating their meats, cream...all the things I was afraid to eat outside since plates and leaves are rinsed in river water; meat hangs black with...

Location: Hotel Sheela is well-known to the locals, so it was easy to travel there from Agra Cant train station (tuktuk: Rs. 150). This hotel, however, is located in a non-vehicle zone, so the last few hundred metres have to be covered on foot. Be wary of the aggressive touts along the way! Hotel Sheela is located near the East... More

This hotel was on a very good location next to the Taj Mahal. However couldn't see the taj as it is a one story hotel. Walking to the hotel gave us a lot of hassle from store holders wanting to sell their products, however just said no thank you and walked away in confidence. Walking distance to restaurants and shops.... More

I gave this hotel 5 stars because I'm going to rate it for what it is; a budget hotel with an awesome location. I believe in the philosophy that you get what you pay for. Well at roughly $15/night, I feel the Hotel Sheela is an incredible bargain. I booked this as we rolled into Agra because I began to... More

We booked this hotel in advance and to be honest weren't feeling great about staying there - the description in the latest edition of the Lonely Planet guidebook makes it sound pretty grim. However, our room was basic but absolutely fine, for hot water you had to ask staff to fill up a bucket but we didn't find this to... More

Popped in here for tea and snacks after our Taj Mahal visit - my second visit - and enjoyed a pleasant hour in the garden catching up on the blog (free wifi). Great little place - real oasis of calm. The rooms look very basic but ok and range between 700 and 1200 rupees per night.
