“Dont stay here by choice”
Reviewed January 9, 2014 via mobile

This is not a Palace. There are not to many positives associated with this hotel. I was caught in Agra an additional night and needed a hotel after the Taj resort advised they were fully booked. This hotel was around the corner and available, I now know why. There was no hot water at night, there was no hot water in the morning until I complained. Breakfast was a shambles, dont even eat here, it was embarrassing and I had to eat elsewhere, promised wifi not available.

Stayed November 2013, traveled with friends

We made an online booking to another hotel but were transferred to this hotel on arrival. We had to spend a night at Agra and were looking for a budget acco. The hotel is brand new (some parts are still under construction). The beds were comfortable and the room clean. Didnt have the heart to try out the breakfast as it was a very unappetizing spread. The hotel staff was helpful and had a smooth checkout.

Lovely location-it is just 5 mins walk from M.G marg. The staff is warm and courteous and they offer a very good service. The hotel has an amazing bar with a lovely ambience. The restaurant , bar, coffee shop and some of the rooms have a fantastic view. Tasty food and a good buffet spread for breakfast and dinner.
