Nice 3 year old property, looks new and is quite well maintained.

Restaurants : one at the ground floow about 30 seater and at the roof top about 30 seater also. The view from the roof top is quite nice at sunset but not a very good view of Taj Mahal as another hotel has come up recently and blocked the view.

Rooms are comfortable, clean, hot water (a bit too hot though).

Driver's room is available for those who wish to put up their drivers for the night as well.

As clos as you can be to the Taj Mahal without tuk tuks being banned, it's a great location and close to most things - souvenir stores, restaurants and other sights.

The rooms are lovely clean and relatively spacious, with a good bathroom and enclosed shower. It's in a very quiet area, but try not to get a room on level 1 (basement) as it is under the kitchen and can be a little noisy. Staff are very helpful and awfully attentive. Breakfast was awesome

Room Tip: Ask to be on level 2 or above

Stayed one night essentially travelling to Agra to see the Taj and fort so didn’t spend much time at the hotel.
Staff were very friendly and helpful.
Location was fantastic in a quiet part of town, a short walking distance to the eastern gate of the Taj Mahal which is ideal if you are planning a sunrise visit which was well worth getting up for. You can get tickets from reception.
Our room was in the basement (level 1 in the lift), which was modern, clean and comfortable with a good bathroom but didn’t have a window, not an issue for such a short stay but a consideration if you are staying longer. No wifi in the room and shower only luke warm in the morning.
Ate in the restaurant in the evening, buffet style good choice and tasty and whilst I don’t think that they are licenced you can get a beer (wrapped in a paper napkin). Buffet breakfast was good.
Nice roof terraced and pool area with a view of the Taj.
For us given such a short stay location was key and this was perfect. With regards to the hotel, it was very nice other than the fact that the room didn’t have a window which wasn’t an issue to us but could be for others, I wouldn’t let this put potential visitors off just ensure that you don’t get a room on level 1.

The big selling point of this hotel is its location to the Taj and the price point. For the price the hotel is not bad at all and about what I had expected. Service was good, restaurant was ok. It is nice to be in walking distance to the Taj but also not that necessary.

One nice surprise was the room had an in room safe which became pretty necessary to me when I realized many sites in Agra (especially the Taj) would not allow me to bring in a camera bag full of gear. Most of the time I was limited to caring in my camera around my neck, and nothing else.

The hotel itself was very clean and nice. The proximity is excellent and you can walk to the Taj Mahal. Staff behind the desk are extremely helpful. A real issue at this hotel is the porter's and other general staff. When we left our room we were accosted by 6 different porters. One entered the lift and told us he had cleaned our room (which he hadn't), basically demanding a tip. Do not succumb to this pressure you will only make our worse for other travellers.

We had a 26 day stay in India and everywhere the people were very friendly, from a one start to a five start hotel, except at Hotel Taj Resort.

The room was below ground level with a window letting no sun light in. When I ask if we can upgrade to a room with a window letting sun in, I was told that none for the hotels windows can open.

The roof top restaurant was terrible. The food was tasteless, there was not sufficient light to read the menus and to food was prepared in a different location, requiring some time to arrive and was cold.

The hotel was clean and not to far from the Taj, but in my opinion there are much better options in Agra. The next day we moved to similarly priced hotel up the street and had a great stay.
