Hotel Raj
Ranked #113 of 210 Agra B&B and Inns
Reviewed December 11, 2013 via mobile

First thing is that yes the rooms aren't super clean as the reviews say but most other hotel were worse we checked out. We got a double for 300 after a little bargaining. The staff were really nice. The wifi was decent and the rooftop was a perfect spot to watch the sunset or just look at the taj from afar. The restaurant was nice as well. The location was a great for how near to the south entrance it was and lots. This place is great for getting in and seeing the taj then getting out of Arga.

It seems decent just to crash for few hours and continue your journey through india, not adequate for extended stay and it is a 1000 rupies so dont expect the best. The staff is helpful. At the begginig i was concern about security, but it was fine at least for the night i stayed. Yes matresses are hard, it is not spot clean, looks like a dump, but you'll be around the city amenities, ask for the Ritcha driver Kahlua, and even with him bargain your prices.

Room Tip: On this hotel i think all are the same

from this horrible dump. nasties place i've ever set foot in. bugs everywhere, paint falls off everywhere you look. We booked the superior deluxe room, and all we got was a tiny room with three beds that had the same comfort as sleeping on concrete. infested with bugs. The bathroom had no shower, but just a water hole. the sinks where dirty. best to forget about this one.

About the hotel in short: terribly filthy, dirthy bathroom, dirthy sheets, staff not helpful or even nice. What is true, that the hotel is about 50-75 m from the South Gate of the Taj Mahal and also it was an experience in my life as traveller - I can appreciate even the slightly better places now... We were talking to a nice Indian boy, a waiter in one of the neighbour restaurants, who told us, he used to work in the Hotel Raj before as a cleaner, but he quit because the place was too filthy for him to work in.

At first I have to say that the hotel's location is very very good. It is situated just next to the south gate of Taj mahal. The manager and the staff are very friendly and helpful. In my case, I was promised to get a complementary pick up from station. But due to some misunderstanding it was not possible. But, the hotel made a complementary drop to station. Food is good but price is a little high. All over, my staying at Agra was very nice and I enjoyed very much. Thanks to Hotel Raj Bed & Breakfast !!

We ended up at Hotel Raj following a few signs on the main road. The reason for following them? The free wifi. It turned out to be a good choice, mostly because of the kind and helpfull staff (the wifi worked excellent as well!).

There's an attached restaurant which serves ok food, they have a laundry service and it's only a one minute walk from the entrance to the Taj Mahal. The room could be a little cleaner, but that doesn't change the fact that we would happily stay at Hotel Raj the next time.
