We stayed at this hotel, like everyone else, when we went to see the Taj Mahal.
It was a really good hotel, clean, well fitted out, good food and a good pool set in nice grounds.
It even came with its own monkey!
There are other wild monkeys in the area and the hotel have their own rather large monkey on a long rope, who's job it is to scare away the wild ones.
We did get a surprise when we found that the bar was closed on our last night, apparently something to do with the elections taking place.
If you are visiting the Taj and need a good place to stay, this is that place
