Reviewed August 29, 2013

My wife and I were booked into this beautiful and comfortable hotel by DolphinTours India guide recently and we were surprised by the excellent services provided by the friendly staff. The location is ideal for tourist, just 2 to 3 km from Taj Mahal and hardly 15 minutes drive from the Airport.
Their home-cooked food was so delicious.The rooms and toilets were clean and well maintained.
And the price was very reasonable too.
I would recommend this cozy little Hotel to any travelers.

The Dolphinn is very good and excellent... Here every staff member is good. The restaurant is very nice, as well as the food. The rooms are clean and good. The Dolphin is an open area with a nice garden and a good atmosphere.

I recently went to Agra India through Dolphin Tours India. After visiting Taj Mahal i stayed in this hotel. It was a very beautiful hotel. I have traveled to many places before and i have stayed in many hotels but this particular hotel really made me and my family comfortable and homely. The room was very cozy with comfortable beds, pillows and a spacious bathroom. Food served there was very delicious too.

Ram is the owner here and he is so friendly and helpful with everything... he gave me a free guide and a great deal on my room and was so nice to talk to about India. The whole staff is really nice also. The rooms are luxurious and a great steal for the price, don't miss this hotel.

Room Tip: all the rooms are so nice

We had a small issue with the room we were given the first night but when we told the owner, he moved us into another room immediately.

That room was perfectly fine. Very comfy beds/pillows compared to some of our other stays in India.

The owner is a wealth of knowledge about the area and the Taj Mahal, since he used to be a guide for many years.

The free wifi is accessible from the room, which is nice. And this place is located minutes from the Taj.

The food is good. I can see how portion size might be too small for some but my husband and I found them just right since we have been struggling while traveling with oversized portions that we can't save as leftovers. Yummy stuffed nan!

The service was very good and people working there friendly. The owner, Ram is a pleasant and sociable fellow. The hotel is well located and it's very quiet, compared to the rest of the city. Very close to Taj Mahal.
One comment about the restaurant that needs some attention with the portions served.Otherwise the quality is good.
