To be frank, I don't have any complaints. I say this because it is not a kind of property that one writes home about but the hotel meets all the requirements of stay at a popular tourist place like Agra.
We were eleven people with the eldest being my mother with arthritis and the youngest being my niece of 4 years.
The rooms are clean, spacious, and have all the amenities that a normal family needs. The restaurant is good and food is ok. We were served all the curd that we were demanding (being from south of India) without any complaint.
Hospitality is acceptable, hotel is at a central location and we even managed to go to Hotel Dasaprakash, a very popular south Indian chain, for our own dosa, idly etc.
The best part of the hotel is the tariff and I personally felt that they deserve excellent rating for the services provided at that cost.
On the whole, a great bargain. No complaints.
