“Fantastic service, great location, and beautiful surroundings”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 21, 2012

We stayed 2 nights at teh Trident, and thoroughly enjoyed our time there. The staff were very friendly and courteous, the food was excellent, and the pool and surrounding gardens just beautiful. The room was nice without being anything really special. The only criticism is not having free wi-fi internet connection, which I would expect for this standard of hotel, and the price being charged per night.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the 1st floor overlooking the pool,

We stayed at the Trident Agra for two nights and were quite pleased with it.
The lobby area and restaurant have been refurbished beautifully in a very contemporary style.
The rooms are somewhat ordinary and need some work, but things functioned well and the room was quite well maintained.
Nice to have WiFi throughout the hotel. It would be nicer if WiFi was provided without an additional cost.
The manager and front desk personnel were great and very responsive. The manager lives on site and seems to be on top of everything.
The breakfast buffet was extensive and well done with an option of custom made omelets, etc. and the staff was very accommodating.
The pool is large and looked very inviting although we did not have the time to use it.
A pleasant mid-range hotel with some surprises.

Room Tip: Nice to have a room overlooking the pool.

We were staying in the Agra Trident beginning of Sept. 2012. We stopped by the Hotel, negotiated a price for the night and went to the room. Unfortunately the room was smelling damp, moldy so we asked to change the room. In the second room the fuse blew as soon as we turned on the kettle. We requested to change the room again, as it was already past 23:00.

I know we are in a humid climate and it can get damp, but we have stayed in other 5* Hotels in India and we have not had this issue quite as bad.

I guess this was an unfortunate series of events, but there was no offer of compensation.
I have to point out the young staff was VERY helpful. There were two trainees who have just started (a boy and a girl) who were really nice.

To top it, I had arranged a rate for the night and my boyfriend paid the bill the next day. When I looked at the bill (later in the taxi) they had charged us more than what I had agreed with them.... too late we were on our way back to Delhi.

Rooms clean, bed comfy, breakfast was nice, dinner too, but overall stay disappointing.

Hi we stayed at the trident for the weekend of 7th October 2012 and were very very pleased wih the Service levels and the overall experience of the hotel. Inspite of running at full occupancy we were really well looked after, the kitchen staff especially Mr.Ashutosh Awasthi went out of their way to make sure that all our needs were taken care off, and the personalised service levels left us with a very good overall experience.
would recomment this to anyone looking at options for staying in agra

We stayed for 2 nights in October and were thoroughly impressed. Everywhere you go in India people are usually kind to children but here mine were treated like kings and queens! They loved the attention and little extra service like off the menu kids meal and bedtime cookies. The kids club which opens from 9 to 6 was a big plus for us as we could leave them there while we are out exploring the many sites of Agra in the hot sun!

The service was impeccable. We arrived the hotel early in the morning and was offered a room to rest in right away while waiting for our actual room to be ready at the standard check in time. The property is old but the rooms are comfortable and facilities sufficient for a short stay. But what makes this hotel stand out for me is the service, which was the best we have ever experienced in India. Special thanks to Ms. Kushboo at reception, Ms. Kajal at kids club and all of the chefs and staff at the restaurant.

Agree with previous review about wifi, but there's a business center you can go to when you need the Internet or even to print out some documents.

Room Tip: Pay a little more and go for the suite. The view and extra space is worth it.

This is an old hotel, not very well kept. The smell is terrible!! rooms are poorly cleaned, terrible mattress, cable did not work properly, we called and they did take care of it. The bathroom walls very dirty, rather not describe in detail.
Internet fees..............Breakfast was average, not to say poor.
Would definitely not recommend, no idea how it gets good reviews. This is the first review of this kind I ever write, I am really sorry but this is really unacceptable.This was the 5th hotel during this trip and the only bad experience. For the price The Radisson hotel is much nicer and a lot closer to the Taj.
Please stay away.
