The good things first: it is located within 15 minutes (by car) from Taj Mahal, although the hotel is difficult to locate if one arrives at Agra in the late evenings like us (almost no one could give the exact location of the hotel and the phones kept ringing when I tried to contact the hotel for directions). The suite in which I stayed was spacious and the AC and TV had remotes and were working. But it ends there. I had booked the hotel through a travel website and it promised wi-fi and newspapers which were never available. The choice of food was limited with only very spicy and oily North Indian fare available that tasted the same whatever the dish (there was a Menu Card giving options but that was for its Delhi Hotel I was told !). The breakfast had no option but Purii bhaji ( spicy and oily again!) and only after much cajoling a sad version of Bread Toast arrived which probably had margarine in it. The bathroom door wont shut unless someone from outside pulled it hard and the wash basin tap gave electric shock when the geyser was turned on. We stayed for a few days and settled the bill the night before we had to check out in the morning. There was a lot of overbilling in the food items that had to be rectified so one has to be vigilant and keep a track of the expenses at the hotel. The mantra at this hotel is 'You have to ask for everything' even if only a few of your needs are ever answered. It is a Budget Hotel at best with pretensions of grandeur which evaporates when one actually checks in!
