“Clean, well priced”
Reviewed September 14, 2011

As far as Taj Hotels go, this is not the best but a solid, good, clean hotel.

Pros:
Well located, close but not in the middle of it all
Quiet, clean, well maintained
Extremely courteous staff - common for Indian hotels, particularly Taj Group
Very good, sumptuous food offerings in the buffet, lots of choices, lots of options
Rooms are good sized, well appointed and the staff is attentive to detail

Cons:
I visited late in 2010, when the rooms were not all updated (hotel said they were working on it)
The bathrooms had some fixtures that were less than perfect (shower head, toilet seats etc.) but the hotel management was very receptive about comments
Not a whole lot of activities within the hotel so not great for keeping kids busy. There is a ping pong table, an open area etc. but there are not many children around

Room Tip: Rooms facing the outside garden are a better choice for privacy and views

I went to Taj along with my European friend who was visiting me in July 2011. We stayed there for one night. It is an amazing property- scerene, nicely located and cost effective (we got good rates since we traveled during off season).

The room was big, clean and overlooking garden. Surprisingly at all Oberoi hotels in India nobody accepts tips, so do not offer any tips to porter boys or waiters in resturant.

They have just one restaurant which closes around 11 pm. Limited menu for room serivce, but since it is in middle of Agra, there are plenty of eating options.

The Trident offers all the ammenities you would need in Agra. The premises are very clean and open areas makes it welcoming. WiFi is available for a small fee and the workout facitily is small but has enough to get you through your stay. The hotel is quite and the rooms are nicely furnished. Beds are comfortable and the sheets are pristine. The breakfast buffet offers a variety of choices and the staff is pleasant. I would recommend this hotel if you are traveling to the Taj Mahal as it is not far and easy to get to.

I managed to get internet special of Rs. 4000 ($100 per night), this is truly 5 star facility and they treated us that way. Downside was that internet booking did not disclose that breakfast was not included. Restaurant is bit pricy for breakfast and dinner buffet. the charges are even higher than what you would pay in most expensive resorts around the world. Location was perfect - very close to Taj Mahal. Room was clean, well kept, pool was great to cool us down, front lobby was awesome. felt like a royal!

We stayed here in the equator of our trip as semi backpackers.

We wanted to have a nice rest in a western hotel, and we chose the Trident.

The service was excellent, with very helpful staff, the rooms where big, beds were very comfortable, TV was big, nice minibar...

The bathrooms could use a facelift, but they still live up to any european expectation.

In room breakfast was great (1 continental is enough for two people). Pool is also very nice.

Overall the experience was great. Internet access should be cheaper or free.

After having stayed at the Trident Jaipur & having a very good experience the Trident Agra proved to be very disappointing.

The positives-The Trident reception area, restaurant and gardens are attractive.
The hotel is situated very close to the Taj Mahal.The east gate entrance to the Taj is just 5 mins away from the hotel & is the least crowded among the 3 gates. The hotel is located in a good area which has other 5 star properties too. There is a Mac Donald’s outlet barely 300 mtrs away & a Pizza Hut outlet is about 10 mins away on the same road.Shreeya at the reception was very courteous & helpful.

The negatives- There was a lizard in our room which is absolutely disgusting & completely unacceptable from a reputed 5 Star hotel chain like the Trident. When we informed the reception they promptly sent the housekeeping team to remove the lizard. There were no bathroom slippers in the room & the rooms are situated very far away from the main lobby & the pool. The edge of the washbasin is very sharp & someone could get hurt while entering the tub.

After having experienced the excellent hospitality at the Trident Jaipur our stay here did not live upto our expectations.

Please accept my sincere apologies for the inconvenience caused with regard to a lizard in the room.

We have done major renovation in the public areas of the hotel like the lobby, bar and restaurant. We are looking at renovating the rooms and the bathroom in not too distant future.

I have conveyed your compliments to Shreya. She was delighted to learn that her efforts were so well appreciated.

We look forward to welcoming you back to our hotel soon.

We very much enjoyed our stay at the Trident.
Check-in was quick and efficient.
Our room well furnished, comfortable and spacious.
The bathroom very clean with ample towels.
All staff were friendly and helpful.
There is a tuc-tuc 'station' at the end of the drive with reasonable prices, no pressure, our driver was a careful driver. With a named driver the doorman will call him to the entrance.
Any small problems were resolved within minutes.
