“Super service, great staff, good room”
Reviewed October 29, 2012

This hotel is located a few minutes from the Taj Mahal, although a bit isolated from the center where the restaurant are. The staff was really nice. They upgraded us in a better room because ours had a ventilation problem. They helped us with our train tickets. They were very friendly and always trying their best to please us. The room was really nice and clen. It was quiet with good beds. I would definitely recommend it!

Stayed October 2012, traveled as a couple

I don't recommend this hotel unless you are looking just for a place to sleep and you don't care about being clean or not. Our room did not have a window, they have on entire floor on -1 where the rooms have no windows and the smell is not that great as you can imagine. Our pillows had no pillow cases on them and you could see stains, we had to ask the reception for pillow cases and they did not have enough. The shower is very bad as well. But no mosquitoes in the room so that was good.

Room Tip: If you really wanna stay in this hotel make sure you ask a room with a window!

There's not really a lot of choice for hotels in Agra, so this one offers a pretty good all round service for the price. It's in a really good location for getting to the Taj and the facilties are tired but servicable. The rooftop restaurant was very good and though not the best view in town, it's certainly good enough.

The best thing about Hotel Taj Resorts is its location. The hotel is about 10 minutes from the Taj Mahal and can be seen easily from its rooftop restaurant. The staff are quite friendly and the room we stayed was comfortable. Our experience was pretty good with the hotel and we would recommend it to others.

Hotel Taj Resorts was a nice clean hotel, it's walking distance to the eastern entrance to the Taj which is very convenient.
Our room was in the basement which was ok, because it was quiet (which is nice after being in a noisy city like New Dehli). There was a refrigerator and mini bar (the first I have seen India) and we also had a large couch/sitting area. This room was pretty large and the decor was very modern. We had a flat screen tv, and free Wifi which did work in our room and common areas. The bathroom was large, however the hot water took a long time to warm up. The free breakfast was good and offered more than just toast and cereal which was nice. Overall, I think it was slightly overpriced, but you can't beat the location. I did not make it to the rooftop to see the pool or view. I would stay here again if I was visiting Agra.

I wouldn't call it a resort as no gardens but it does have a rooftop pool which is welcoming in the heat although not super clean - was a tad greenish!! Our room was located on the ground floor which was great, spacious bedroom with mini fridge (a rarety in India), flat screen TV with all necessary channels, a safe (which didn't work properly) and a putrid smelling bathroom - we complained about this numerous times but they chose to ignore this unfortunately - making it a rating of 3.5 instead of 4.5 :(

Breakfast was excellent - plenty of variety here. We were given early check in which was great on a 7am arrival from the train! Handy central location to the Taj - you buy tickets up the road to the left of the entry - approx 1000R for both the Taj and the Fort or 750R for Taj only - this is for ONE entry only not multiple in 1 day - so don't rush your visit - enjoy your time there. Once you've bought your tickets you walk 10 minutes or more back towards the hotel and down the road to the Taj entry, if going early 6.00am for sunrise there will be a 30mins queue and you'll be searched so be warned.

Room Tip: ask for a room above ground level - check bathroom smell before accepting the room!

We arrived this hotel on Oct 9 morning around 8:00am. The hotel allowed us to check in early without additional charge. Walking distance to Taj Mahal. The room was ok, but shower head in bath room was not working properly and water was not hot. No international channels on TV.
