Very nice place to stay for an overnight's stay in Agra.

Pros:

A) Proximity to Taj Mahal

B) Good Buffet spread

C) Rooms with Taj view in the background

D) Courteous and Helpful Hotel Staff

Went Agra by Shatabdi Express. Hotel staff was courteous enough to allow early check-in and complimentary room upgrade. We were provided guided tour of the property and room escort. Our room had a beautiful Taj view in the background. Their breakfast buffet spread was nice.

Our stay was memorable and would love to come again.

Definitely not a 5 star (in fact quite a shock when one walks in and compares it to other Taj properties). More 3 plus star. Run down, paintwork peeling in places, rooms musty, a very basic buffet spread for lunch and dinner. The breakfast spread is good. What is impeccable though is the service and the attitude of the staff and their hospitality. It is a big disappointment if one is used to other good Taj properties.

Room Tip: The Taj Vew roms definitely have a very good view of the Taj Mahal (although its not so close).

Greetings from the Gateway Hotel Agra

At the onset please accept my sincere apologies for not meet the expectation in terms of the product.
We would like to update you that Gateway is a Upscale Brand of Taj Hotels and is a full scale five star hotel but it is not a Luxury Hotel which is generally associated with Taj Hotels, keeping the same in mind the Taj Hotels are Now Branded as Taj Hotels, Vivanta By Taj, Gateway Hotels and Ginger Hotels which represent different market segments.

We would also like to assure you that we are taking necessary refurbishments and rennovation in this regard to ensure that such incidence do not reoccur in future

We look forward to having you stay with us again in future. Please do get in touch with me for any further assistance.
Warm Regards
Amit Tandon

We had the most wonderful experience at the hotel. We arrived early one morning (8.30am) and were escorted to our room; asked for a late check out the next day and once again, they obliged. The staff went out of their way to make our stay comfortable. The restaurant was very pleasant and the food was delicious; the waiters even had a laugh with us. We could not be more happy with The Gateway Hotel Fatehabad Agra and will sure to recommend it to others who wish to visit Agra. We loved the fact that it was a little trip to the Taj Mahal as we got to enjoy the journey and see "life in Agra" as we left the each time. I wouldn't stay anywhere else next time.

Room Tip: Our room was on the top floor and overlooked the Taj Mahal, what more could you ask for!

We were really happy staying here . The welcoming was lovely . The staff so friendly and polite. It was our honneymoon and they gave us a cake in arrival in our room to congratulate us . Our room was clean and tidy with a beautiful view of the taj Ma Hal . Even though it was on a main road it was Supprisingly very quiet from our room. We loved the fact we could sit in our aircon room on the comfort of our sofa and watch the main round . it was like a huge tv screen off the sights of india . buffulo wondering down the street amongst all the cars , monkeys on rooftops and kids flying kites . we watched for hours . The wifi worked very smoothly with easy acsess . Room service was fast and the meals were reasonably priced and delicious . The gardens and pool were very neat and tidy and a welcome escape from the hussle and bussle of outside . Very secure and safe . The breakfast buffet was well balanced choice of India cuisine and an American plan breakfast . We would definatley recommend this to our family and friends and would be happy to stay here for much longer next time .

Stayed just one night on 31 May 2013 on our tour of Agra and Jaipur. RIght from the outset the service was wonderful, from the greeting on arrival with drinks and cold towels (very gratefully recieved as the temperature was in the mid 40s). We were lucky enough to be upgraded to a room with a view of the Taj Mahal. Yes it was in the distance, but as someone who was visiting for the first time was still breathtaking! The beds were comfortable, the bathroom well equipped, except maybe another couple of bath towels may be in order as I have long hair and need to use 2 towels!! I am sure though, had i telephoned for another, it would have been provided. As were off to see the Taj Mahal at sunset we left the hotel after only 30 minutes, on our return a turn down service was completed. The range of food was good and the bar is well stocked. The pool looked absolutely perfect but our timetable prevented our trying it out.
I would recommend this hotel for any travellers for service, food, cleanliness and was very friendly.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a view!!!

Great job team Gateway...

In Agra to visit the Taj Mahal and spent two nights. A very nice hotel, with lovely gardens and swimming pool where you can relax in between sightseeing. They are also a nice bar and two restaurants. We ate at both, one a traditional Indian which is excellent and I drank a cocktail with a whole chilli in it - amazing. The buffet restaurant was ok but if I went back I'd stick to the Indian restaurant. Pleasant, clean room with a/c and TV with plenty of channels - mainly cricket - but still some premier league football. Staff were very pleasant and they even had a palm reader on site - if that’s you thing!

Room Tip: Ask for a pool view as the gardens are lovely
