“All is good except the shower is not hot”
Reviewed February 12, 2013

It is a nice hotel with free WiFi internet and clean blanket. The stuff is friendly too. Only one thing is not satisfied - the shower is not hot, it is too clod to take a shower in the winter. The location is good, close to The Taj Mahal.

The rooms were bad and the food was disappointing. Service was strictly okay. Only good thing was that the hotel was right in front of Taj so there was a good view from rooftop and getting there was only a matter of walking 5 mins.
Had this place been couple of kms away from Taj Mahal, it would have been shut down years back.

Pros:
1. View of Taj Mahal

Cons:
1. Cheap rooms and unpleasant bathrooms
2. Disappointing food (had to clean plates with personal napkin and couldn't dare to touch the glasses)
3. Way to costly for the services if the view of Taj is excluded from prices

If you are visiting Agra, better book a hotel 5 kms from Taj but with better facilities than booking a hotel at the entrance of Taj with disappointing facilities.

For $6/night I will not complain much. The only issue I had was the internet did not work and the bathroom was really sketch, for example, the toilet seat was being held on by a string. The location is great. The people who are complaining about it being in a bad neighborhood.... It's India.. in your standards, the whole country is probably a bad neighborhood. I loved the location, it is hidden away off the main road but there are plenty of signs that point to it. It is a 2 minute walk from the south gate of the Taj and while I was walking there, I came across some sort of Hindu ceremony which was cool to photograph! The staff were really great. They arranged me a 4AM tuk-tuk to the train station... which I would not recomend getting but was a "special" experience. Last thing, the restaurant was really great and the view of the Taj is very nice!!

This is a budget property and worth for people who wanted to see taj in moon light as Taj veiw from the top floor is very clear in moon light. Dont expect anything more than that. Rooms are small and not painted well. Restaurant should be limited for bed tea and breakfast only( my view). power cuts had not back up by gensets or inverter. Over all complete paisa wasool type property rather than a hotel.

This place was recommended me by Smyle Inn in Delhi. The hotel was the owners former house and has a nice roof terrace with a view on the Taj Mahal. I took a very cheap room since it was sufficient for me. The bathroom I had wasn't very nice, but those in the double rooms looked a lot better. The place was very clean, and the staff was very helpful. The Internet connection was very slow, and quite often unusable. The restaurant on the roof offers some nice though plain meals. When ordering there, be patient! They might be a bit slow. Overall I must say I had a very nice stay of 5 nights.

Room Tip: Take warm clothing with you. Be patient when ordering food or drinks.

go for this hotel only if you are on a tight budget. The staff is kinda helpful but they have very little to offer even if you are ready to pay. Our bedding's we smelly and had all sort of pubic hair from the previous guests. The wifi wasn't strong enough to be used everywhere and the kitchen could have not been kept more unhygienic. The only good thing was the view from the roof top, but a lot of hotels around offer the same. Please avoid this if you can as the hotel is truly filthy.
