My Fiance and I stayed in the Yamuna View hotel (Agra Ashok) for a few nights in Jan 06 having walked out of the Hotel Sheela cos it was so filthy and found and booked the Ashok pretty much on the hoof over the phone, clutching our guide book, from outside the Sheela (see separate Review). We were so grateful to get into a half decent room we didn't really care that the decor was a bit '70s and the place could have done with some updating and yes maybe the room did have a bit of a musty smell (cleared by air con).
Staff friendly enough, although the shop staff became a little too pushy for our liking and we had the same problem as another reviewer with prices for cars being different on booking at reception to those on the price list in our room.
The food in the main restaurant was nice but was largly empty and the service in the Chinese place (only ate there once on our last night) was slow despite telling them we had a train to catch. The best find (in the whole of Agra) we made was the Dasaprakash Resaurant litterally next door - turn left out the gate, and its upstairs a the back of what looks like and old cinema/mall. Awesome! - a Mysore and an Onion Rawa Dosa with Lassis followed by ice cream (if you can manage it) all for about £4 for two. Rammed with locals and tourists.
All up then , its probably not the best hotel in Agra, but it sure aint the worst but you could probably find better for your money if you had some time.
