“Not amazing but better than expected.”
Reviewed September 21, 2013

Just got back from a multi-day trip throughout the golden triangle of India. This was the second of three hotels we stayed at on the trip. Given our trip was budget-oriented I had very low expectations, but I would say we (and everyone with our group) was pleasantly surprised. The property was clean and the service was pretty good. The beds were hard as a rock but after a day of touring I had no problem sleeping. The restaurant on the top of the hotel had nice views and an upscale feel - the food was fine but not amazing. I did visit (but did not get in) the swimming pool, which seemed nice enough. I could not decide to give this an "Average" rating or "Very Good" so I went with Very Good - in reality it is probably somewhere in between. That being said, I would stay there again if the circumstances presented themselves.

Comfortable room, bathroom ok. Friendly helpful staff. Clearly caters for big parties and conferences. Location is between the 2 main centres for street life which are couple of km away. Quiet location is a good thing as it costs pennies to take a tuk tuk to the fun areas. Find Pappu the tuk tuk driver - he is a good guy.

Its one of the oldest hotels in Agra city area. One of my friends had recommended me this hotel about 4-5 years ago. Got a chance to stay last month only though. One can see that its quite and old property as some parts of it need renovation...but the rooms are very good. spacious and mostly clean. Good location is its main advantage, as u can probably walk down to the main bazaar from here. Didn't try the restaurant, but got to know later on that its quite a decent place to dine in Agra, and the locals specially visit to dine here.

Rooms are spacious and clean, well designed. But the lobby area bears the marks of old age as many parts can be seen in need for renovation. the hotel is very well located, right in the middle of the busy Agra market area, so no problems with connectivity etc. The restraurant serves some good Indian and mughlai food.

Room Tip: Try booking your rooms online in advance, you might get a good discounted rate.

Stayed here last year while tour with a group. The staff was very friendly and always willing to go above and beyond. The room was nothing to really brag about but it was clean which is the most important thing.

The restaurant served scrumptious food but was on the high side. The also tacked on a "entertainment surcharge" which would have been nice to know up front since I would have dined at another place down the street where the food was a tad bit better and a lot cheaper.

The Pros first. Very well maintained property, excellent rooms and service, very clean, beautiful landscaped lawns. Close to Taj Mahal. I would love to stay there again.
The Cons Food is expensive. Some of the quick bites are priced in US dollars instead of Indian rupees ( Is this even allowed ??).
