Reviewed March 17, 2013

The roof top restaurant has an excellent view of the taj mahal and nice food for a reasonable price. At the time I went there were friendly fellow travellers, which is worth something. The room was quite clean, the bed was ok, but the bathroom was a bit on the small side. The staff was helpful in arranging for my further travel plans.

No running water due to power out, even with generator running. Then, no hot water even once the power was on again. Ac room with no shower!! Arrogant front desk man. Arsy restaurant manager told us off for sitting across aisle in an empty room. Torn and dirty bed sheets. Give it a miss, or else go in cheap for the rooftop view only and expect no charm or service.

I stayed here for 3 days. 650 pr night(a bit much) First night I had a cramped little room with inside windows. When I woke up there was a nasty smell. I went down to the reception and told them, and with no problem I got a new room - much bigger with a view over Taj Mahal. Very good service. So I am satisfied. The rooftop restaurant has an excellent view, and was the reason I chose the place in the first place. Food is okay. It is a budget hotel, so the rooms are a little dirty, but okay for me. 5 min from the Taj South gate. There was a lot of other backpackers here also. Nice stay.

We moved to Saniya Palace Inn after having had a bad experience in a nearby guesthouse. The room was okay and clean, even though the attached bathroom is dwarf size. The rooftop restaurant has decent food and a good sight of the Taj Mahal.
The owner is friendly and funny but a smart guy, so whatever you buy from him, make sure to bargain and take your time to decide. We asked for train tickets to Varanasi, which, because of a number of unclear commissions, would end up costing around twice the price we ended up paying at the train station ticket counter.

Came to Agra on our way to Allahabad for Kumbh Mela, the staff was very helpful in getting us very limited train tickets to our next destination. We had a basic double room for 600Rps a night, no windows but it was fine. The toilet was on an angle, which was a bit odd. The rooftop view is the big winner and the food was very good also. The rooftop staff seemed to get a bit itchy if we stayed for too long without buying something, it was a busy Saturday though. Overall can recommend to anyone looking to stay in a decent place right near the Taj. (East Gate is remarkably close)

We called from the bus station in Jaipur and reserved a room for our arrival in Agra later that day. We were quoted a price of Rs. 700 that we agreed to. Once we arrived about 6 hours later, the staff acknowledged our phone call from earlier and now stated the rate is Rs. 1050. The place is covered with signs from various review books stating how highly recommended they are. It seems this has gone to their heads. We were not able to negotiate a lower rate. We left and found an acceptable room further down the alley at Taj Guesthouse.
