No hot water for the two nights we stayed there
No included train station pickup - we were charged 350 rupees from the Agra Fort station
Reception staff are not that friendly - we left to go to the ATM to get the $$ to pay the bill (prior to checkout) and they got quite angry that one of us didn't stay in reception (even though our bags were in their luggage storage) - plus we used another rickshaw driver which they didn't seem to like
Expensive considering no hot water
the front rooms overlook a street cafe which blares through a loud speaker indian music at very high volume from 7am-10pm each day which will impact on your sleep!
There is a roof top where you can view the Taj (from a distance) however this is still a bit of a construction site (or never finished) with no chairs/tables etc. so you can stand and look only.
Location - only 5-10 mins walk from the Taj Mahal
Clean room (though we had to ask for a second towel and sheets for the bed as room wasn't fully made up)
Airconidtioner is brand new and first class
Would I recommend: No. There are better value rooms available elsewhere
