Reviewed April 10, 2013

We stayed at Hotel Taj in February 2013. We stayed on the ground floor, which was behind a single glass door. It was fairly quiet, which was very nice. However, the room just didn't seem very clean - the linens seemed dirty and the room decor a bit tired. Also, our toilet was leaking. We had someone come in to have it fixed, and after tinkering around with it for a few seconds, said it was fixed. It definitely wasn't!! It continued to leak immediately after. But we just forgot about it, since we were there in Agra to see the Taj Mahal, and not to stay in a luxurious hotel.

The morning buffet was standard - nothing special.

Advantages: within walking distance to the ticket booth on one side of the hotel, and also to the entrance to the Taj on the other side.

Got picked up by the hotel taxi driver 300 rupees each way and swiftly transfered to the hotel about 15 minutes away. Check in was swift and friendly and the rooms were very comfortable. We did not use the roof top swimming pool but it looked very nice. The restaurant on the ground floor for breakfast was a little hot and stuffy and the breakfast served was average.

The massive plus point for this hotel is the location and it would have been nice if on check in we were advised of the following:-
1) exit the hotel and turn left, walk 300 meters up to the Taj ticketing office on the right hand side of the road
2) purchase your tickets rps 750 (£10) and hop onto the electric courtesy shuttle bus which then take you back pass the hotel and to the Taj Mahal entrance
We unfortunately turned right out of the hotel and went down (700 meters) towards the Taj Mahal and had to go back up to the ticketing office

Overall a pleasant stay with nicely appointed rooms

Stayed here for one night at the beginning of April 2013. Having been driven here through the dusty, busy streets of Agra (trust me, out of the main sites, there is nothing else to warrant exploring) coming into this place does appear like a little oasis from the city. Inside it is clean, modern, and generally comfortable, although the bed was a bit odd (it was square - plenty of space at the sides but not so good when you're tall). There is a small clean swimming pool on the roof, along with a bar/restaurant that would normally be a very good place to round off an evening. Unfortunatley when we visited the service that day was painfully slow, having to wait nearly 30 minutes at one point for two drinks, despite ordering them at the start of the night. Shame really, as the staff were fine otheriwse, and the food was generally good. As for the location, the entrance to the Taj is only 200m down the road, the other main sites would require a taxi or autorickshaw ride.
Overall, four stars for the hotel, and three for the restaruant

Conveniently located. Very near the Taj ticketing counter. Battery operated cars operate from the ticket counter parking lot to the Taj east gate. Rooms are small but clean. Dinner served on the rooftop with sitar and tabla. Good ambience with a view of Taj. Breakfast was just ok. Staff is very friendly and helpful. Overall a comfortable hotel to stay for short duration visit.

Nice hotel, lovely rooftop restaurant. We didn't get hot water on either days, only warm. Very helpful staff, but frustrating to have to pay cash for everything but the room itself. As usual, they add a cut to all arranged taxis, but its easy and convenient so you pay a bit more

Staff were phenomenal. They were friendly, helpful and very knowledgeable about the area. Food was the best we had in India, Mutton Mughal curry and Paneer Curry are highly recommended. The location is perfect, it is within walking distance from the Taj Mahal and you can see it from the viewing deck. We had a late train out of Agra, so we spent the day at the pool, a welcome rest from the heat and a busy trip. The doorman is always dressed in full regalia with the best moustache, a lovely touch.
