We had a room booked for one night. After a very last minute change to our arrival date I called ahead from Delhi airport and requested the possibility of them fitting us in for the one night. He couldn't get us in.. or wouldn't.. so I asked for a referral to another place. Delhi airport, although it has wifi.. has no hardware so it wasn't possible to get online and book a place.. or sift through for another possibility. Yes, I used the LP but stupidly went on the hotels referral. After we were picked up (by this hotel) they took us to the Green River View (I can't even find it on the net anymore) or whatever it was called which is a few doors down, just past the Oberoi. It was 8 pm and we just thought what ever. Well it was really really horrible. The room had giant bull ants crawl through the light socket and cover the room, no hot water (although the desk guy had said there was). Their PC was shagged and took forever to load up. The next day they turned the power off to save money. The Taj Plaza (after paying the driver the night before.. who obviously hadn't mentioned this to his boss) tried hard to get me to pay for the airport pick-up again.. until I cracked it and told them to take a walk.
We dropped into the Taj Plaza to see what we'd missed out on. It was worn and quite dirty anyway. I certainly think you can do better. Not happy with this place. Unfortunately, expect to get ripped off in Agra.. they have one commodity.. you...
