“Happy visit to Agra ”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 11, 2014 via mobile

The location of the hotel is excellent . A very short walk to the nature gardens and one of the gates to the Taj . Beautiful rooftop view of the Taj mahal so you can wet your appetite for your visit. The staff are helpful and friendly . The food is good the Thali is huge but good value for a hotel restaurant.

Stayed March 2014, traveled solo

First experience while checking in the hotel was pathetic. So unprofessional with the timings. Rooms were not ready by 12pm also rooms were overbooked and guests waiting in lounge.

The staff on reception started bargaining on the check-in and check -out timings and they keep calling the guests that when would you check out.. such a shame !!! FELT INSULTED

ROOMS are ok but bathrooms are in pathetic condition stained walls and floor ,, hot water means room temp water... haha can you imagine.. wash basin seems like that shahjahan used it years ago..

I am not recommending this hotel to anyone..

Sorry Taj Plaza cant help you gotta be more professional

Worst Hotel Experience Ever !!!

This hotel staff was really unprofessional, They were very rigid on their check-in timing. Though they had room available they kept me and my pregnant wife keep waiting till 12 PM. This was in spite of my readyness to pay extra money or charges for shifting soon to any vacant room. My wife was in dire need of rest due to tiredness. Never seen so much rudeness from any hotel or hotel staff anywhere in the world.

My booking detail are as follows:-
Booking No: HTLQGXAU4K

Room Tip: Worst Hotel Experience Ever !!! This hotel staff was really unprofessional, They were very rigid...

Booked 2 nights in February 2014, Good hotel and excellent food in the hotel restaurant, unfortunately bathroom was a big disappointment and marks this hotel down a lot.

Pros:
- Walking distance from Taj Mahal Eastern Gate (10 minutes walk)
- Very tasty food in the restaurant, Chicken Curry and Garlic Naan - best I had.
- Polite, helpful staff
- TV with English Channels
- Great views from the rooftop restaurant
- Good communal areas

Cons:
- Bathroom was disgusting so much that even though of a shower was off-putting. The bathroom had a open unglazed window onto another bathroom, you could hear all the noises from that neighboring bathroom (and I mean ALL the noises). Water was mostly just lukewarm.
- Dirty bedding

The views from the rooftop restaurant and the Taj-facing rooms are probably among the best in Agra for a mid-range hotel. The rooms on the 3rd and 4th floors are very good; you have full view of the Taj Mahal from your bed through big windows. Great for sunrise.

The room quality itself was OK. The room was big and so was the bed. It was comfortable and clean.

The location is perfect for visiting the Taj. You enter through the east gate which see fewer tourists and therefore shorter lines. The entrance itself is a 10 minute walk from the hotel. Note however that the ticket counter is not at the entrance itself but about 5 mins walk from the hotel in the opposite direction of the Taj Mahal. There are some restaurants in the area but the main restaurant and shop areas need a rickshaw ride.

The most positive thing about the hotel is its location. Its situated very near The Taj! hardly a stones throw. Its neat and a compact hotel, comfortable as well. The food is Great: Tasty & fresh. It is a great option for the people wanting a frill free and a less costly accommodation. You can also have the option of having a Taj View room: 305/306 in which we stayed had a lovely view of the Taj from the windows. Yes! the sheets may be a little cheap, no option among the pillows, frugal toiletries etc. but the most important component of friendly hospitality is well upheld. it is well located to some cheap shops from which you can get all that you need to groom if you wish. It was a great experience.

Room Tip: Taj View rooms are a delight: 305/306
