“Good Location but ....”
Reviewed November 17, 2011

It is best to visit the Taj Mahal as soon as it opens in the morning and before the crowds descend. Taj Plaza Hotel is one of the very few mid-priced range hotels which is located within walking distance of the monument. One can also have a good view of the Taj Mahal from the roof top restaurant.
I stayed in a Taj Facing Superior room which has a very nice view. Room didn't appear clean and bedsheet and pillows looked untidy. Hotel doesn't provide basic amenities such as soap, shampoo. You need to call reception if you need hot water to shower.
It is a pity that the standard of housekeeping service is so poor as the hotel is situated in a very good location.

We where there at September 2009.
We took a suite ( We where with four children). The price was good. The room was good ( Also it was crowded for all of us).
The location is great and the roof restaurant was nice.

i booked into hotel through mmt, and it was a nice room.. untidy bathroom but was acceptable. the restaurant was very costly and not worth at all, instead try some dhaba's on the outside. if looking for good lunch, try taj mahal hotel on the way to agra fort, its awesome but little expensive.
the hotel lacked basic amenities like toothpaste, soaps, etc.
anyhow was a great trip around.

Room Tip: if u want a budget hotel, this is the best anywhere near taj mahal. but if can afford, there are man...

I spent a month travelling around India and this was by far the worst place I stayed in. The food gave me food poisoning, there was dried blood on the wall of my room. The bathroom was discusting and the room hadn't been cleaned properly. There is a view of the Taj from this building its true, most of the time you won't see it though, due to the smog. Stay in another hotel and well away from this one.

No lift but staff only too happy to run up 3 flights of stairs carrying our heavy bags. Very knowledgeable about Taj Mahal and helpful with travel advice. Delicious food and they even ran to the local store to get us some wine! The rooms are nothing special but for the price you can't complain. Beds are comfortable enough and air conditioning was great.

Room Tip: Ask for lower floor as there is no lift.

3 of us stayed a night to catch the sunrise over Taj Mahal. We arrived in around 10pm and were greeted with lovely smiles and after a very quick check-in were shown to our rooms. The rooms appeared newly decorated, were clean and offered a good night's sleep. Rooftop restaurant offers a lovely view of the Taj Mahal. Unfortunately, the morning we were there, there was quite a haze around, but still beautiful nonetheless.
Definitely can't beat this place as a view to the Taj Mahal!

We stayed at the Taj Plaza for two nights and were pleasantly surprised. We were greeted by friendly staff, including a lovely security man with impressive moustache and after a short faf with the usual Indian paperwork, we were shown to out room.

Room and bathroom were adequately clean with sheets and towels that smelt freshly laundered. There's a TV, a ceiling fan that doesn't make a racket and hot water (although not just before bed it seems). The air con in a little pointless as there's gaps all around the unit which is attached to the window, but we only needed the fan.

We only had bottom sheets and one towel in the room, but when we told the nice helpful staff at reception, they immediately gave us the extra bits.

The restaurant on the rooftop serves nice food, but opt for individual dishes instead of the Thali, which wasn't as good. The view of the Taj Mahal from the restaurant is fab. Only downside of the restaurant is that they don't seem quite sure what to do with the place - the rooftop is big but the few tables are weirdly huddled together and theres no decor or plants or anything. The nice waiter deserves a special mention for running up and down three floors from the kitchen to the roof!

A tip re: when to go to Agra - we arrived late morning on a Thursday, did the Taj in the afternoon and then all other sights on Friday. The Taj is closed on a Friday which meant that Agra was much less intense! We got up to see the Taj at sunrise from the Moon Garden and then did a full tour of the other sights on an auto rickshaw. The Baby Taj was especially wonderful - with fewer crowds in Agra on a Friday, we had the place to ourselves aside from a troupe of monkeys and some chipmunks.
