“Not worth for the kind of money spent”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 19, 2012

We had decent expectations from this hotel because we had paid 3k for a night for this place. The moment we entered we were in for a shock though. Though I had booked in advance the guys said they don't know when and how had I booked and hence cannot give me the room. Thankfully sanity prevailed and I was alloted a room. Now this room had two different small size beds which weren't joint and the room was unclean. After a debate with the staff, they finally gave us another room which was better. The complimentary breakfast also wasn't upto the mark and no fruits was served with the breakfast. The only advantage of the hotel was its proximity to Taj. Overall a disappointment and could ahve gotten something better for the price paid.

The hotel is dirty, filthy, sticky and not a suitable place for any human being. Everything is bad. Hotel staff is rude. Even water is bad in this place. I went with my family after booking this place through a travel agent. In our trip covering delhi, jaipur and agra, stay inthis hotel turned to be the spoiler. I advise anyone who views my comments to stay away from terrible place

Room Tip: stay away from this hotel

I shall start my experience from the minute we started booking and blocking rooms.:
1) Called and asked for availability.They confirm availability.
2) Mailed for confirmation.They do not reply for 2 days !!
3)They reply insists on making payments.Prices are over charged.After negotiations,they again insist for payment.
4)We receive a reply : "Pls confirm Yes or NO" ( exact words !!)
5)We receive an email : Booking closed.Hotel is booked.
6)Then again,after some talks and then confirming availability,they confirm blocking the rooms for the trip date.They send an email confirmation,about rooms blocked.
7)12 hrs before checking in,I receive a call saying,that the blocked rooms are no longer available !! Their MD gave it to some other guests.
8) Then after 4 hours of the call,they again inform,confirming rooms availablity.
9)We had an early morning check-in (they had confirmed acceptance of this as well),when we arrive at 6:30 am,they say,rooms are not available.After 1.5 hrs of wait,they gave us one room of the 2 rooms we had blocked.and the second room is given after aother 2hours.None fo the managers are aware of the entire scene.The one with whom mail communications were done,wasn;t picking up the call and the one behind the counter was unaware of the enitre thing.

Breakfast was ok.But the sad part was,the staff in the restaurant was insistent that the guests get their breakfast coupons from the reception,and then start.(this was a shocker!!No hotels does this.They let them have the breakfast in peace and then ask for room nos. and stuff )

Proximity to the the TAJ was the saving grace of this poor hotel.Staff were ok,but inspite of every goof up,they do expect you to tip them.,including the gatekeeper.

Thankfully our stay was only for one night.Rooms,were ok.Towels,soaps etc were not in place and we had to call for it.Bathroom mats were not available,so they get towels to be spread on the floor.Heaters were made available,when asked for,and the front desk says "Heaters are free,but pls tip the guy who gets it for you!! "
Long wait for Hot Water in the bath,our commode were not firmly screwed to the floor.So that used to wobble.

Rickshaw charges negotiated were :
-Hotel to AF railway stn :Rs.80/-
-Hotel to Agra Fort : Rs. 80 /- ( We got a rick fellow ,who for Rs. 100/- stayed with us for the Night Show at Agra Fort ( 1 hr duration) took us to a place for dinner,waited for us for almost an hour and then got back to the hotel.
-Hotel to Agra Cantt Railway stn : Rs.70/-.

Had an ugly start with them,equally bad surprise when we arrived.A bit unlikey,i would go back to them again.They promised a big car for pick up for our group of 5,from the railway station.But sadly,when we arrived,the car wasn't there.It was sent,after we called them again at 6:00 am.And they sent a small car.we somehow managed to dump the luggages and ourselves into it.It's not really needed to have a pick up.Just that early morning,with so many pax and luggages,you may not be able to negotiate with the rick ffellas.Rs.100-150/- should bo ok,but the hotel informed us that it would be Rs.200-250/- and he managed to sell us the Pick-up car for Rs.350/- !!!

Hotel Taj Plaza and Hotel Taj Khema looks really nice from the outside.Unsure,as to how they are in terms of service and everything else.I did not choose Taj Khema,after reading some reviews in Trip Advisor,however,had a good first impression seeing it up-close.But then,lack of options of Hotels can drive u back to Bhoomi Residency.

This hotel was just awful. It claims 3 stars. Who allocates stars? It deserves none. It is not boutique and it is chronically overpriced for what is offerred. The sheets had not been changed from the previous occupants [and were visably stained], there was no in built heating, the door locks were insecure, the furniture was threadbare and the breakfast was just awful. The only positive things that I could say is that the staff tried hard in difficult circumstances and its location close to the Taj was good.

First the pros...
1) It Is very close to the Taj and so if you want to see it at sunrise the location is perfect.
2) There is an in house restaurant which is convenient if you want a snack.
3) The breakfast was passable...

I Tried to think of more pros but i couldnt so...
The Cons
1) Miserable service.
2) No Hot Water and if you are going in winter this is a problem.
3) The very fact that it is so close to the Taj means that it is very far from everything else and you will need some sort of transport to get you around.
4) Did i say miserable service?
5) The room wasnt clean and smelt of smoke when we entered.
6) The pillows were stained with oil and blood! although the room service hurriedly covered them up with clean pillow covers.
7) They could not get the AC to work and when i complained they said that its cold anyway and i should make do without it.
8) When i complained the next day i was told that its just one of these things that happen so they were sorry and they couldnt do anything about it.


It was only after i threatened to call the police they grudgingly cancelled my food bill of 800RS. Considering i had almost spent 4000Rs on the room i felt that that was a bit rich.

They will obviously need to raise their game but i doubt they will.

Bhoomi is a 15 min walk to Taj Mahal....and hence is at a stratrgic point..........It is neat , clean and today with a courteous staff. Food is decent and tariff for room is also fine. They just need to work on hard water problem.
