Quiet, calm, upmarket hotel at reasonable value in an expensive location for top end hotels. Hotel is very close to Taj Mahal for sunrise visits and times breakfast to allow for these. Very helpful with advice and excellent service. In an area where everyone has their hand out for a tip and tourists are hassled everywhere, they have a very welcome policy of banning individual tips and soliciting for them. Breakfast and dinner buffets are excellent quality with plenty of continental choices and helpful staff with chefs always at stations for description and advice. Rooms very comfortable and quiet with all facilities you would expect at this grade. Would definitely return.

Dear TripAdvisor Member,

Thank you for taking the time to review our hotel and for your kind comments.

We are often reffered to as an oasis or santuary in the city of Agra by our guests and we like to keep it that way. I am happy to know my team looked after you well and the Chef is pleased that you enjoyed the food in the restaurant.

We look forward to welcoming you back in the not too distant future.

Warm regards,
Vishal Bharti

I just stayed there for one night. I booked it because I would like to treat myself better in a 5-star hotel after lots of travelling before leaving India. The location was not very good, it was almost in the outskirt of the city. The staff was fine but it tooked a bit long to check in. The most disappointing part was the small room I got. I asked for a twin bed room and it was smaller than the one I stayed in a 3-star hotel in Delhi. There was no bottled water provided and , the TV was not a flat screen, not toothbrush and toothpaste provided and the beds were small. It was just not like a 5-star hotel room, the best I can rate is probably 4 star. It could look nice in the garden and the pool, but not the hotel room.

Quite a grand hotel in Agra. Glad we stayed here, everything was great. Did not have time to use the pool or other amenities but everything looked wonderful. Had dinner at the restaurant in the hotel and it was good. Very close to the Taj Mahal so that was convenient. Overall, good stay.

We stayed for one night/2 days in Agra and this was perfection. They provided early check-in and breakfast when we arrived tired at 8.30am. Staff were very attentive and helpful. The pool was a perfect oasis of calm which was definitely appreciated as Agra and the Taj are hectic to say the least. The decor was outstanding and it was extremely clean.

The Trident has a large, pleasant lobby, where we were welcomed with a drink and informal check-in. It was Diwali, so the lobby was decorated with pools of beautiful flowers.
We had a deluxe room which overlooked the garden and lovely outdoor pool area. It was a typical 4* room layout, but with a very large and comfortable bed.

All the staff were cheerful, helpful and provided excellent service. Their level of training was self evident and the hotel benefits from a central tipping policy (what a relief) where tips to individual staff are not encouraged. Food was excellent, with a buffet breakfast and dinner offering plenty of choice. Unfortunately we only stayed one night here in our three week India tour, but the Trident provided the benchmark against which we judged the rest and proved to be one of the best.

People this is one of the best 5 star hotel in Agra. Excellent staff people, always ready to assist people with a smile. This hotel has almost all the facilities. Fast speed internet connection, a nice swimming pool.All the rooms are very nicely maintained and very clean. All the meals served were very delicious. Hotel is very quite and gives you a good time to relax.
It was a little expensive, may be due to weekend visit.
But in all i am satisfied with it.

Hotel Staff in Awsome. I was travelling with an Italian. We ordered custom Pasta and a Chinese dish that was not on Alacarte menu. The Chef made it specially for us. This shows that hotel staff will do anything to please the customers. White Leinen is really white.
