Booking online was very good: no credit card required through "www.booking.com"
Hotel: Very good service, nice decor, rooms are basic but clean. The roof top view of the Taj Mahal is great.
Location: excellent - only 600 metres from the East Gate of the Taj Mahal
Restaurant: very good local dishes - don't miss the "delicious rice dishes" they come on a different menu!!
Bonus feature: the General manager. He is a delight to talk to.

Room Tip: ask for a room that faces the Taj Mahal - not the street side - as this can be noisy.

The location and rooftop view of the taj are the main reasons to stay at this hotel (short walking distance to taj) and the price is cheap. The staff on reception are not very friendly (with the exception of the security guard who always gave us a nice welcome) and the rooms are very basic (salty water, breakfasts are very oily that didn't always agree with our stomachs). Staff will organise taxis for you but we were pretty sure they were adding on a decent amount of commission for themselves.

Positives :
1) Online booking procedure was clean and uncomplicated
2) Check-in and other procedures were easy. We reached ahead of the standard check-in time and they gave us a room as it was available. The staff was friendly
3)Close to Taj - about 750m walk
4) Ticket counter is 5 minutes walk (away from Taj)
5) Restaurant is good - service is fine - a shade expensive though
6) Can get a view of Taj from rooftop

Negatives :
1) No lift - if you get a room on the second floor, may be tough for seniors
2) Water is highly salty - but is a problem with Agra, not specific to this hotel
3)Restaurant is not open early in the morning. If you want to visit Taj at daybreak, forget about having a coffee before that !

Overall :
Value for money. Don't expect five star facilities when you are not paying for that !

Room Tip: If your priority is getting a budget hotel close to Taj, this is a good choice. You could walk to th...

Though the hotel is located in the best possible place, next to East gate, we were shocked to hear that there are no lifts and we were given a room in the third floor with steep steps.
Adding to the agony, the water in the taps was salty. But the only consolation was that all the nearby hotels also had the same problem of salty water.
Food was ok and helpers were ok. Front desk people - very unfriendly.

Had a very bad experience stay in this hotel and we couldn't be able to stay for even a single day. They are providing hard water for everything except for drinking. We can't bath with this water and even a face wash. Water is more salty than the ocean water. We were scared to bath with this water. It's also very poor in service, food is very expensive and wi-fi too. Rooms are very small, cooler and T.V are not in good condition. The only best feature of this hotel is nearer to the Taj Mahal.

Room Tip: Don't choose this hotel
