None of the hotels in Agra seemed to be particularly great but I decided on here for our 1 night stay while visiting the Taj Mahal as it seemed like a pretty good hotel and good value. It was a lot better than expected and, even though we only had the 1 night here, we really enjoyed our stay.
The room was quite small but was absolutely lovely – very modern, big comfy bed and one of the best hot power showers we had in our whole 3 weeks in India! The only problem I had with the room is that the one window was up very high with blackout blinds which meant I could hear people walking on the street in the morning but it was so dark it still felt like the middle of the night, so I would suggest asking for a room on a higher floor.
Breakfast was also one of the best out of everywhere we stayed in India. There was a selection of Western and Indian foods and, even though I didn’t try it myself (which I’m hitting myself for now), my husband says the French bread was the best he’s ever had! They also had plenty of juice which seemed to be hard to find in North India hotels for breakfast.
Even though it was a chilly night we had dinner in the rooftop restaurant as it looked lovely and had a great atmosphere with a couple of people playing drums and the sitar. My husband even got dragged up on stage to have a go at playing the sitar which was entertaining! The food was delicious and I would have eaten here every night if we had stayed longer.
We were there during winter so it was quite foggy but I’m told you can see the Taj Mahal from the rooftop when there’s a clear sky. The rooftop pool would also be a lovely place to relax when it’s a bit warmer.
For a short or long stay in Agra I definitely recommend Hotel Taj Resorts. A modern and pleasant hotel but still with an Indian feel.
