Our stay in Agra was brief so we decided to stay in a Hotel very close to Taj Mahal. According to Lonely Planet Hotel Sheela was recommended. Unfortunately we were a little disappointed by the room.
We have booked a deluxe room for 800 per night originally. But by the time we arrived we were told that the AC did not work. instead we got a discount of 100 per nght, but compared to a simple non AC room that was a ripoff!!
thus, we hardly were able to sleep at night as it was way to hot, thus turned on the fan, which was sooo loud we had to use oropax.
Next we had some nice guests in our room. the first day I saw a gecko in our bathroom, a few minutes before we checked out I saw a mouse crossing the room as well. yey!!!
Only good thing about Sheela is the very good location and well the fact that the other hotels, recommended by lonely planet (which are more south of Taj Mahal) are locatred in a VERY ppor area where there have been LOTS of beggars. I'm not sure whether it's very safe for tourists there!! On the contrary Hotel Sheela's street is protected by police. (Well, at leat it was when we where there which was at the end of the ramasan - there was a huge celebration)
