“Perfect location. Consistent quality.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 10, 2013

While travelling along India, our travel agency booked us rooms in different hotel chains; some domestic and quite picturesque, others were average well-known resorts; like Radissons.
Trident hotels stand out for their consistent quality; properties were nicely kept with beautiful gardens and inviting poolsides.
The rooms were decorated simple but pretty. Expect comfy beds & loveseats.
TV, AC and internet all work adequately.
The businees center is open around the clock.
Back up for ocassional power shut downs works efficiently.
The restaurants provide a variety of dishes: local, spicy, curry tasting entrees, as well as other (mostly chicken based) options for foreigners. Buffet meals were satisfying. If dessert is not of your liking, ice cream is provided upon request! (Happy face!)
Beware of plenty of mosquitoes at the garden terrace.
The Taj Mahal is a few minutes away. Tour guides usually set a 5:30 am departure for you to access the Wonder at dawn. Don't pout. It's soooo worth it.

Cannot fault this hotel. The rooms were very comfortable. The buffet breakfast was very good with an extensive choice. Dinner buffet was yet again good and the a la carte reasonable. The garden and pool with sun beds were clean and tidy. The walk around the vegetable garden was a good place to bird watch.

We stayed for two nights and enjoyed the oasis of calm it afforded in the craziness of Agra. Our room looked out over the attractive lawned garden and pool. A compact and relatively small hotel it provided us with an opportunity to really relax between sight-seeing. The restaurant here was run exceedingly well with such a choice of excellent food to choose from. Staff very friendly. The decor and interiors were very modern and stylish. And, the reason why we come to Agra...The Taj Mahal!! ... East Gate was only 10 minutes away by auto rickshaw. Thoroughly recommend for comfort and situation.

Room Tip: Garden room is a must

We came to the hotel around 10 am and there was no problem with early check in. The rooms was clean and need. Agra Trident is perfect for somebody who want to come for one or two days trip to see Taj Mahal and Red Fort, but is also nice for longer stay. The pool is nice, garden big. The hotel Management organize for us small swimming pool for our daughter! was really sweet from their side!
They provide us also a guide who show us Taj Mahal and Red Fort!
The minus of the hotel might be a bit the cleanest near swimming pool ( the pigeons who are living on the palms near pool make a bit mass, and even frequent cleaning doesn't help), and restaurant service was a little chaotic, but I can recommend this hotel with big pleasure, since we spend there nice time.

Room Tip: Rooms in the front part of building has the best view on the pool.

Stayed at the hotel recently with my 2 year old. The front office, staff, restaurant, Kiddie area, open field, pool....you name it and its easiest to rate everything in one word ' exemplary'. The restaurant staff was so courteous and sensitive to my toddler's requirements. The staff patient and helpful. Rooms clean and well maintained. Next time in Agra, I will stay at the same property. Good Job, Trident!

The hotel is fabulous, the staff are all very good all speak English even the gardeners.
The restaurant for breakfast is everything a traveller could wish for, great variety for all nationalities.
Great pool, nice grounds.

My only criticism is the cost to use WiFi 10 pound's for the day or 4 pound's for half an hour.

The funniest thing thou is when we got to our next hotel on our 2 month tour of India, where the WiFI was free, we had received a welcoming e-mail from Trident hotel Agra. Not sure why the the send this considering the cost of there WiFi not many people log on to it until they have left.

However it is a nice hotel, food and drinks are pricey.

Room Tip: Ask for a pool view, however the trees do obscure, unless you are on the second floor.
