“Perfect for a trip to Taj Mahal”
Reviewed February 23, 2013

Really near the East Gate that gate opens first for sunrise visits to the Taj Mahal. The hotel is so close to the ticket desk. The hotel was very informative & helpful with taxi booking & trip advice.
The rooms were comfortable, clean and quiet. Shower looked dated but good power & hot water. I had Superior Taj facing from Agoda £16 and found it to be superb value. Would not be suitable for someone who couldn't manage stairs. This room was very handy for roof top restaurant, which had a wonderful view of the Taj Mahal.
The roof terrace served superb thali. Good menu at good prices. Although the food wasn't the hottest by the time they'd carried it from the kitchen on ground floor to terrace on the top!

Room Tip: Don't think you need pay extra for a Taj facing room, as terrace has such a good view.

Most people only stay in Agra for 2 nights at most and the Taj Plaza is a cheap option for a short stay. No luxuries but a fantastic location only a short walk away from the Taj Mahal are what make this a decent place to stay.
Everything was okay. Clean but not spotless. No daily room service but then at this price you ain't gonna get the Hilton!

This hotel is located close to the Taj Mahal, which can be seen from the top terrrace. It has basic but decent rooms, very competitive pricing and friendly staff. Recommended for backpackers and other people staying a few nights. Food in the restaurant is decent.
We enjoyed our stay at this hotel. Don't expect too much though...

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a view of the Taj Mahal

Great location. Really close to the Taj which was good for the early-morning run. Cool roof-top. Clean. Bad shower. Wifi for a cost. Travel advice for a cost. Will carry your bags to your room for a cost. In other words: be sure to bring money for tips!!! Good for one night, not longer!

Hotel for tourists who come to see the sights. Close to the Taj Mahal - only 600 metres. The hotel is small and old, the rooms are very modest, but all the necessary things are in the room. Good view to the Taj Mahal. A rooftop restaurant very nice.

I came to Agra on a simple overnight trip from Delhi before proceeding to Jhansi.

I was traveling with a team of 13 people; 2 from India. This was a reasonably priced hotel with very good staff. The staff was friendly and efficient.

I tend to review accommodations in a foreign country based on my expectations for that country and NOT based on what I would expect in the U.S.A. For example, if the average hotel in India has a single pillow on the bed and a 2 inch thick mattress on a plywood frame, it will typically get an average rating.

Hotel Taj was fairly average for an inexpensive Indian hotel near a large tourist attraction. We were pleased with the stay, the restaurant, and the staff.

The average rating is becoz it's close to the taj on the east gate...

It was a short trip for us, so most of the time was spent outside involved in excursions and sightseeing. The hotel by itself is simple and our room did give a view of the Taj which was like a dream poster.
The restaurant is surely a miss thing but we did try it and were ok with, nothing special about it.
The staff were super friendly and we almost thought they were kids working there.
