Without doubt, this is the worst hotel I have ever stayed in. It was SO bad that we had to laugh. The rooms were old and tired. The lift was riddled with corrosion. The plumbing system was unbelievable. It seems that hot water was only available in the duty manager's room. We had no water at all in our first... More

It became extremely uncomfortable in the sweltering weather of Agra. Ac is not equipped with remote heck it did not have a control panel to control the temperature. We had... More

The reception area is the first clue that this hotel should be avoided full of smoke and paint falling off the walls. The room itself smelt off damp as soon as we walked in so strong in fact that staying in the room for longer than 15 minutes gives you a cough. Having a dirty room isn't even that bad... More

Rooms were not very clean, bathrooms were missing basic things like towel, soap. TV was not working for almost 1 day(no signal coming).Breakfast was like waiting for almost till lunch.On top of it, the service was one of the worse.I would not go there again & would not recommend anyone else as well.
