I really love this place. Firstly, this hotel provided the best internet connection I've had throughout my trip in different cities in India. I don't know if it is because the WiFi modem is stuck to the wall right outside my room, but I was grateful to be able to update my whereabout for my parents who're always worried whenever I'm alone on the road.
The next best thing was that tickets to the Taj Mahal is available for sale at the hotel reception - no extra charges or fees apply other than the ticket charges and levy. No need to tediously back track half-a-click (500m) to Shilpgram for the tickets. Compared to Shilpgram, this hotel is only half the distance to Taj Mahal's west gate. The short walk was good exercise and also helps build up the excitement to see the Taj :) Despite the short distance, you'll still get touts trying to sell horse carriage rides etc., just keep walking...
The sunset view at the rooftop pool and dining area was also charming. You can even see the Taj Mahal from the rooftop before nightfall - though partly obstructed by trees. They have traditional music entertainment at the rooftop if you dine here at night. However, I prefer to eat in bright places, not to mention the freezing winter evening is really not suitable for alfresco dining.
Buffet dinner and breakfast in the restaurant on the reception level was simple but delicious, and they're got some of the most attentice wait crew I've encountered. I'll defintely stay here again..
