The location of this hotel is unparalleled. This is probably its main advantage. The hotel interiors are fabulous and all rooms overlook the Taj. We did not have the chance to try their food or spa since we only stayed there for one night.
The service was very friendly however there were small hickups here and there.
When we arrived at 10am, the hotel informed us that we cannot check in before 2pm, although they were informed of our early arrival.
I'm sure that a hotel that is rated among the top 5 hotels in the world can accommodate early arrival. This is not some 4 star business hotel, this is the oberoi. My stay should be customized to my needs.
When we did check in at 2pm, our luggage did not come up to the room because it did not pass security. They said we had metal objects and they need to be thoroughly searched! Of course we had metal objectives. My husbands shaver is not wood, neither is my hair dryer. What did they expect? And this is the first time in my life that a hotel goes through our luggage for security reasons. I mean so far it never even happened in airports!
It is very conveniently located next to the taj and they have a complimentary golf cart service to take visitors back and forth upon their request.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The Taj Mahal is extraordinary as much for what it is as how it has escaped the banality of cliché. For 350 years, this monument evokes a sense of wonder. Only by being there can you witness its true majesty, its symmetry, its setting and the delicacy of its carved marble inlaid with precious stones. Now just suppose you were to overlook it from your hotel room? The Oberoi Amarvilas is 600 metres from this tribute to love. The lavish interiors and elaborate gardens add to the serenity of the scene. The guestrooms are palatial: all have magical views and are luxuriously furnished with traditional fabrics, white marble, hand-crafted ornaments and every modern amenity. There is a luxury spa offering a range of therapies, a swimming pool where snacks and drinks are served; an ornamented ballroom and fine restaurants to suit the international palate. But the lobby lounge is a feast for the eye designed, as it was, around that glorious view of the Taj Mahal. ... more less
