Reviewed September 29, 2013

You will definitely have a good night's sleep here, as the beds as so amazingly comfy. The rooms are modernly decorated. Fantastic location as only about 10 mins walk from the entrance to the Taj Mahal.

However, the wifi was not working and there was no hot water, which I had expected from such a nice hotel.

The reception staff was very helpful...they provide us best services... rooms were spacious and were very well decorated with cleanliness....bathroom was clean which is sometimes not possible in some hotels. They have open restraunt on roof top which is quite good and the hotel is situated near taj mahal which is also a plus point for tourists. So overall in my opinion hotel is good, had great location. I would like to recommend it to others...For me it isthe best hotel...i would like to rate it with 5*****

We stayed at Hotel Mumtaz Mahal for two nights of our tour of India and chose the hotel because of its close proximity to the Taj Mahal. (ticket office around the corner then 5 minutes by electric car). Basic taxi from Agra Cantt railway Station was 150 INR.

The reception staff were helpful , spoke reasonably good English and considering we arrived 6 hours before check-in, I was glad they gave us our room so we could get some sleep after our overnight train from Varanasi. They also arranged our laundry which though expensive, it was cleaned well and returned to our room on time.

The hotel is very new and has only been open for 4 months. The rooms are amazing - very high quality, nice décor and really comfortable beds. Tea and coffee facilities were provided in the room and there was a good fridge. There is a lift to the rooftop which has a reasonable view of the Taj Mahal.

However, our visit was not without frustration:

- The internet was very intermittent, it wasn't working at all when we arrived and despite promises, it was not rectified until the following afternoon. Once working it was okay with good a signal in our room (207). The staff were apologetic and did offer me the use of the manager's office if there were things I needed to do on the internet.

- The en-suite shower room is modern, but we didn't have any hot water. We were told it was only available at certain times and when we complained, they offerred us a bucket of hot water! After further discussion they agreed to turn on the water for us which was still only luke warm. I'm guessing that the hotel was low occupancy and they were trying to save money?

- Breakfast was the most disappointing - We arrived to see a member of staff sitting at the breakfast table playing with his phone. He soon moved, but then we saw monkey excrement and tissues left on the floor and thought he should have seen that too and done something about it?
Then, we had a choice of 'Scrambled or Boiled' eggs, we ordered boiled and got scrambled, complained and then got fried eggs which weren't even on the menu! There were no condiments and the toast was chewy. We had sachets of coffee and tea on the table but no hot water and our coffee wasn't replenished.

- One evening I asked to buy beer from the restaurant only to fine they were charging 300 INR. I had recently paid 180 INR in a tourist restaurant, so politely declined ...


Overall we did enjoy our stay and I think the hotel can easily fix the things that frustrated us.
The hotel provides excellent value for money, it is high quality and in a great location and I would recommend it to others ....
