“DO NOT TRUST TO THIS HOTEL”
Reviewed February 18, 2012

We booked 2 rooms from this hotel 3 months before arrival. When we arrived to hotel, they just informed us, that they have no booking, allthough we had a booking confirmation from travel agency. When we tried to solve the problem, there were several managers around us most of them very unfriendly and not willing to help at all. There was a wedding season in Agra and obieysly they've sold our rooms for better price to them and just kicked us out, they also claimed, that they don't do co-operation with our travel agent. I know such can happen and to us has happened also before in India, that hotel has sold rooms twice but before they've arranged new room from a sister hotel but this time they didn't even try to help anyway but wanted us out as soon as possible.

Stayed February 2012, traveled with friends

This is a hotel for serious consideration, if you're heading to Agra.

I stayed here for 2 days and 1 night and really enjoyed my time here. The staff themselves are extremely helpful and really do go the extra mile to ensure you have a comfortable stay at the hotel.

The hotel room is large and spacious, with big windows. The air-conditioning hums very quietly, which is helpful when trying to sleep.

The layout and décor of the room is inviting and the bed is fairly comfortable.

The food - we mostly ordered room service, mostly north indian fare. Its lip-smacking, especially the aloo paratha with curd - a must try!

The railway station is quite nearby to the hotel, it is centrally located in Agra City.

I would definitely recommend the hotel for a stay, the room, the service, the staff, the location.

Room Tip: See through a few rooms before choosing upon one.....the staff are friendly and will not say "n...

Paid 2800 rupies plus tax for a stated room of 3800. This was the best mid range hotel I stayed in over a 2 week holiday. Get room with window via Internet or ring . Don't arrange with an agent unless you want to pay a lot more.

The hotel is rather faceless, the staff - disinterested in the guests.
The room was quite clean, but stuffy and had no daylight at all. The heating system is centralized, so in case you find it too warm inside the room, they 'cannot help it'.
OK place for a night, but if you want to spend more time in Agra, it might make sense to look for another hotel - this one is overpriced. The restaurant is overpriced too.
Not too far from Taj Mahal and other major sights - but not as close as some other reviewers write - you still have to take a rickshaw to get there.

Recently, thirteen members of of my family, ranging in ages from 8 to 80, showed up on December 25th, as scheduled, to Hotel Amar. We had a voucher confirming our bookings at the hotel, through Cox and King, our travel agents. Much to our horror, they told us that they had no rooms for us there. They sat us in their lobby, while 'looking into the problem'. When confronted about how such an error could happen, Mr. Verma was slippery and avoidant. "it is complicated", was all he could say. He promised to put us in a hotel 'of par' and sent us to Hotel Satyam where the linen was soiled, the toilets were clogged and the rooms were filthy and the heating was inadequate.we had a misearable experience in this hotel due to the fact that hotel amar gave our rooms to some other people even though we had been booked there as per our travel agent.
