We had booked stay for 1 night at the hotel because of its proximity to Taj Mahal. The reception area was sadly maintained with dis-interested person at the front desk. The lift was in a condition that it might fall anytime. As we levelled to our floor, the only view we got was of the road!!! Room was decent, but...

This hotel stood out as being by far the worst on our trip. We only stayed one night but it doesn't take long to work out that this hotel needs to work hard in several areas to meet (reasonable) customer expectations. The first thing that struck us was that the staff on duty in the massive reception area didn't seem...

We stayed in this hotel for New Year's Eve as part of a larger tour of India. On first impression the room was great as it was massive! However we soon realised that certain things did not work, such as the shower had no hot water and the room was so big it was cold! I asked for a heater,...

The hotel staff is awfully untrained in hospitality and do not have any idea about how to treat customers. There was no welcome at the hotel entrance. The checkin process was mechanical. We checked in at around 4 PM. There was no hot water in the bathrooms. The intercom was not working. After repeated calls to front desk, one guy...

OMG! When you see these hotel, is like ok looks like a heritage hotel, with a nice facade in the middle of Agra, the reception area is decent and you kind of have this heritage (but brand new) feeling. The first problem we encounter was the PostNet machine was not working properly, they swiped the card like 4 or 5...

We arrived into our room. Decoration seems good but very old and toilet & shower does not work. No wifi in the rooms and every body should use internet at the lobby, it was very slow & disconnected. No good breakfast, No hot water for shower

Booked into here by our tour company as our train had been cancelled. Actually looked quite smart at first but rooms were rather tired, our room felt like it had been recently decorated but then they had left everything else including a very leaky bathroom. However on paying the rather inflated prices for drinks, the front desk, in cahoots with...

outdated, but had that India charm which makes you forget the need for all the amenities of home. Clean, good option for visiting the Taj. Good spot to see Agra from. Nice breakfast which is included with room.

The hotel looks good when you arrive. There is a very polite indian guy who opens the door of your car.... and thats about it. There is no 'to serve' mentality as can be found everywhere else in India. Coffee tastes like dirty water, food is not cooked or prepared wrong, no hot water in the shower and no interest...

We arrived into our room and it was un-breathable due to musty air. We obtained a room change and this room was better but was still musty. We then had to ask for the lights to be fixed as only 1 out 4 lights in the room were working. The TV did not work. There was no Hot water to...
