The staff was excellent as the level of service I received was what you'd expect at any luxury hotel. The public areas and restaurant were modern and the Trident, Agra made an already great trip to the Taj Mahal and Agra Fort even more enjoyable.

We chose the Trident after it was recommended by family members in India. I was pleasantly surprised by the cleanliness, the lovely decor, the service, the comfortable rooms (lovely bedding! very clean and super comfortable!). Families with teenagers should be forewarned that there is a company policy that "officially" does not allow an extra bed if a child is over 12. We were a party of five (the youngest 14) and I had to make a fuss to get an extra bed (at considerable extra cost) rather than getting a third room. The manager (not a particularly nice guy--a bit smug) claimed that the rooms were too small for an extra bed which was not true AT ALL! The rooms were good sized and the bed fit easily. In the end, the kindness of the rest of the staff and the overall positive experience made up for that little annoyance. I'd definitely stay there again. This is clearly a hotel that understands service and is working hard to give its customers excellent service.

I was in Agra for only one reason, to see the Taj. I was very happy when I walked in the see the nice lobby and was greeted by staff who took care of my checkin whilst giving me a refreshing drink.

Once escorted to my NON SMOKING room, I immediately knew the room smelled of smoke and I advised the staff upon entering the room. After a few minutes in the room I called the front desk to be moved to another room that hopefully would not smell of smoke. After waiting nearly 15 minutes, I decided to walk down to the front desk myself to find porter to move me. Finally, someone came and moved me to a new non smoking room. There was nothing special about the room, but my dinner and breakfast were among the best during my 2 weeks of travels. The restaurant seemed to cater more to western style food and I could even enjoy a drink with ice in it!

I also took a swim in the pool which was nice and really large.

Except for the smell of the first room, it was worth the price.

Much better than we thought taking into account what we'd paid for it. Much cheaper for what it offers than any other hotel we found in India. Good rooms, very nice staff and good location.

trident hotel in agra is beautifully modern built hotel ..within the city .. A 5 star hotel with 5 star amenities...the stay at trident was definately worth it..

Entrance was beauituflly done with a big lobby from where the swimming pool could be seen on outside..and we were provided with beachballs and tubes fo safety of children.

They had restaurant and bar,poolside service ,and a coffee shop!!

A must eat @ restaurant is - chocolate pie.. its simply awesome ..!!

the hotel had everything from a beauty salon to car rentals facilities to baby sitting facilities to gift shop ..just name it .and they already had it ..!!

as we checked out of the hotel ..my teenage children were given a set of colorbook with pen.

the rooms were not massive enough ..but to compensate they were very clean , beautiful ... The room service and everything a to z was spectacular!!

since we did not carry the camera we dont have the photos ..so i am posting a one taken from internet!
