It was a really nice trip to Agra, thanks to Dolphinn staff who ensured that the food was customized and perfect for my 3 year old son and 10 year old daughter. Nice warmed milk for them in the mornings. And the location is perfect, just 10 mins from Taj Mahal by Tonga or electric auto. Ram (the manager) and Ominder were very helpful in guiding me on the places to visit and overall, the service and kitchen staff was very friendly.
Cons: Yes, like every place, this one must have them too especially since it is built on a budget. (1) Ram is a pushy salesman who owns a marble and cottage store nearby. We liked some of the stuff we saw and bought it (good value but expensive since it was exquisite). Do say a firm no if you are not interested. (2) The mobile tower on top of the building makes some funny humming sound at times (not irritating but noticeable) - the hotel is getting this repaired

Room Tip: Choose a spacious room with a window. A couple of rooms and washrooms are slightly cramped with no w...

We stayed at the DolphInn Homestay for a night before a trip to the Taj Mahal. The location was great for this - it was a short walk down the road to get to the booking office. However, the actual homestay was a bit odd (and definitely not a homestay experience!) We'd paid for the more expensive superior room, but were initially put into a standard executive room and I had to ask a few different staff members before we were allowed to move into the room I'd paid for. The staff were stand-offish and unwilling to help unlike in other places we'd stayed at in India. And the room's windows were so poor that we were kept awake by a festival going on until the early hours of the morning down the road. There are so many hotels in Agra that for the money I think you could definitely find a better option.

i go agra around 6-7 times a year for my work and this is the good place for every kind of stay.
they have good cooked food and free wifi with nice speed so we can work from there.
this place is ideal for meeting unknown people after your day in crazy agra .
service is good and staff always ready to help.
next time will choose this hotel for sure.

I stayed in this hotel when i came to agra with my family. I would like to say this is one of the best hotel i have stayed. I felt like home. The environment and sceneries are just wonderful. The room was very comfortable. Hotel staffs were very friendly and also very informative. Its very difficult to get a this kind of homestay for such a reasonable price. I'll suggest this homestay to anyone who's going to stay in Agra.

We booked DolphInn based on the good reviews we saw on here, and much as I don't usually write bad reviews, we felt totally misled and don't want others to feel the same. They didn't seem to be expecting us (we booked online), were rude when we said we weren't going to eat there, the room was tiny, dark and disgusting and smelly. A bucket had been put over the drain to try and block the smell but it did little to help, and the room was generally dirty, shower was useless and cold. We were woken up by lots of noise in the corridor at 2am which went on for over an hour before we asked them to be quiet (which didn't help) - we had suspitions they were hotel staff using empty rooms, shouting to each other and had the TV on full but may have been other guests. Finally quietening down they were shouting again at 5.30am. Terrible terrible place and not at all cheap by India standards. Certainly cannot see the Taj from the hotel as per the website claims. DO NOT STAY HERE
