A free upgrade upon arrival to overlook the Taj Mahal was very welcome!
Staff were vert helpful and friendly throughout.
Our room (apart from the view) was comfortable and a good size. Along with the Taj, we could also watch the comings and goings on the street below - very interesting!
We enjoyed a couple of beers on the roof terrace watching the sun set over the Taj and listening to traditional music - highly recommended.
Dinner in the Indian restaurant was a delight. The thali is one of its specialities - and for good reason! Delicious and plentiful too. As was the breakfast, with a good range of Indian, European and American options.
Good location too- not far from the entrance to the Taj Mahal, but beware of street-hawkers and pick-pockets even on such a short stretch. The hotel will find you a taxi!
We very much enjoyed our stay at the Gateway - great service and great value!
