“New and Not Great!”
Reviewed December 21, 2012

We were told that this was a new hotel but it certainly doesn't appear to be. The bathrooms are substandard and the air conditioning failed in one of our rooms. The single occupancy rooms are small and dingy.
Breakfast was less that appealing.
Staff were friendly.

Room Tip: Agra is not the cleanest city and this hotel is not the best. Try another one.

My tour organizer had thought this new hotel was a four star so we were shocked at the mosquitoes in the room, the shower curtain with brown stains at the bottom, the grey towels, lack of adequate hand towels, no face tissue, lack of properly trained staff. The morning breakfast consisted of boiled eggs, white toast, puri bread, watery potato curry and some inedible baked beans. The male waiter (with a glum face and a name that sounded like Rajiv Singh), when asked if dosa or omelettes could be made promptly said no. The front desk is inadequately staffed so when we checked in after a long drive from Jaipur, the lone receptionist kept us waiting while he spoke on the phone. Shades of Fawlty Towers. There is a hotel car wrapped in cloth that is parked out front and blocks the narrow entrance to the hotel. The manager did however respond promptly and replaced the shower curtain, gave us a plug-in mosquito repellant, and gave us more grey towels.

I found that hotels in Agra are on the costlier side. This hotel is also not very cheap, but it is good for the price that it offers. It is near to Agra fort. The rooms are also nice and clean. Overall it was nice staying there.

Stayed October 2012, traveled on business

Comfortable bed and very nicely built room. Several issues popped up during my 2-night stay which prevent me from recommending this for anyone:
1. The 'hot' water was quite cold - made for a very unpleasant shower.
2. The window did not close completely, allowing quite a bit of street noise in - normally would not be an issue, but there was some sort of festival going on nearby late into the evening. Ended up using a coat hanger to hold the window fully shut.
3. Wifi was quite spotty - frequently dropped connectivity, and blocked my attempt to connect to a work VPN.

First the positives:
Hotel is quite close to Taj Mahal.
Hotel staff is very warm and provides good service.
Room are clean and spacious.
Lunch/ Dinner at the restaurant is of good taste and quality.

Now some improvement needs:
Breakfast was pathetic. Even complaints did not help.
One room fan was vibrating a lot. We were quite frightened initially. Electrician checked and said it is fine.
Refrigerators provided in the rooms do not cool.
I did not see any recreation room/ activity for kids.
Only one AC was functional at reception. So, it was quite hot at the sofa.
No swimming pool.
