Reviewed July 27, 2013

Though I stayed only for a day on the room on top floor...the views were nice..food was terrible for I had to send back the order twice...rooms were unclean....the slim tall guy at the counter is extremely non cordial...some near by hotels like shanti lodge and hotel kamal are far better options....not recommended at any cost

The Sai Palace Hotel is located in Taj Ganj Area and very close to the Taj Mahal, which is perfect, especially if you're planning on visiting the Taj Mahal for sunrise like we did (make sure you purchase your tickets the day before in this case). The rooftop offers nice views of the Taj Mahal, the menu of the restaurant is average - it's about the same in all the rooftop restaurants.
We got a room at the very top. The room was nice enough and very clean but the a/c was not reliable at all. It would run for a couple of minutes and then be off for a few hours which means that if you're unlucky, you have to bake in an oven at night (the room gets quite heated up during the day being on the top floor of the building). So our advice: Check out different rooms, make sure that the a/c is working properly and if not, that you can change to another room! Temperatures in Agra are way too hot in June to do any compromises on the a/c, really...

One owner was very nice, whereas another was terrible. The view of the Taj Mahal was amazing but the air conditioning sounds like a traktor. Multiple power cuts during the night so having a nice sleep wasn't on the list... Wouldn't recommend it as 800 rupees per night is expensive for the value of the place.

1. The first thing about the hotel is , it do not look like hotel rather look like a guest house.
2. Though seems to be nearer to taj by viewing from rooftop restaurant, it is away.
3 .Room service is terrible. No drinking water supply in room.
4. No hot water for children too.
5. No blankets are provided. Provided with white bed sheets that general supplied in railways. 6. Restaurant food is so so so but costs very high at the range of 3* hotel.

Hotel is in a back alley quite a ways from railway stations, but conveniently close to the Taj Mahal - about 5 min walk! You can see much of it while you sip your morning Chai from the rooftop restaurant.

Checkout is an early 10am, but they offered us free luggage storage for the rest of the day.

We requested a pickup from the train station, but never received an email back. Our train was late so we arrived in the middle of the night. I wasn't impressive with the night staff, but the main day staff was very helpful!

I would stay here again!

First of all, the positives .. a five person room for 3 people, so cheap! The room was acceptable, the bathroom not so nice. Great location for the Taj Mahal, walkable to all gates. The negatives: the 'air con' in the room can only be described as a turbo jet. Unable to sleep with it on for fear of taking off and room unbearably hot without it. Avoid the restaurant. Although the food is edible, it's not worth the MINIMUM 1 hour wait. 4 people in the kitchen, nothing happening and then one would slope off to the shop to get a Sprite, another 5 minutes later to get a bag of noodles.
