“The Best stay”
Reviewed March 22, 2010

The hotel is cool & economic. The rooms were spacious & clean. The bathrooms were also clean. Room Service was prompt. Mainly we could see Taj from some of the rooms & the terrace restaurant. It is very near to Taj on walking distance from the eastern gate. The hotel provides paid pick & drop facility to stations & sight seeing. In all it was a good experience.

Good point :
Clean, bathroom and sheets...
hot water, (ask for it 20 minutes before if you wake up early!)
600 meter away from Taj Mahal
Taj mahal view from restaurant
raisonable price Rs 650

Bad points :
Noisy as open window in Bathroom on the corridor.
Fan make noise at the low position, then you have to put at maxi.
restaurant is not that good and a bit expensive (do not take a continental breakfast but take everything separetly it will cost you less!!)
ATTENTION : Do not book anything to the travel agent at reception, he isn't honest at all and try to get more money from you, I can understand it, but he even doesn't want to help you for free, better to ask in the small cabine where the boss is if he is there..

Anyway all those small desagreement are forgotten once you are on the terrace for eating or drinking a Beer looking at Taj Mahal!!!!

We stayed in the Hotel Taj Plaza for only two nights. The stay was comfortable but average for the price. Our room had a very nice distant view of Taj Mahal which is something we paid for extra. The staff in the hotel was helpful however just like everywhere in India will charge you extra for absolutely everything. The food in the hotel's restaurant is below average and the restaurant at the rooftop is in desperate need of some improvements. Otherwise average hotel and comfortable stay.

Hotel Taj Plaza Agra is a good Budget Hotel, well decorated & clean ,location so good on main VIP road just 600 m from Taj, Easily can go by walk to see Taj no need to take rickshaw, if you take they will charge 20 to 30 Rs. for a couple. One thing note when you go to see Taj from this Hotel , you have to come back 100m right side on main road from this Hotel to take Entrance Ticket. First you take Ticket then go other wise rickshaw wala will charge you double for this mistake.
From rooftop of this Hotel where nice restaurant is there ,you can see Taj easily, very prime location, its reception , balcony ,roof top Taj view is excellent, very decorated floors with nice painting you love them , rooms are neat and clean, service is good, restaurant very nice clean food , only one thing I notice that their bathroom is not that much clean as it should be ,not bad but because it is 2 star hotel, I can't say about every room may be they good I was in room 308 ,Hot water not run all time, only for few times. at night hotel workers are making noise when they come to 2nd or 3rd floor its feel disturbance to people who staying in the room and sleeping, they should come silently, From Agra cant , Agra fort distance is 10 & 7 Km, so actual fare is by auto 50 to 70 but simply the demand 80 to 100 please be alert , please take auto, taxi by own bargain, or take guidance of hotels reception, don't take help of any hotels labor, there setting with auto ,taxi cost more, overall hotel is very nice , I recommend everybody.

Can't beat the location. Next to the Amar Vilas (at 1/30th the cost!) and easy walking distance to the Taj Mahal East Gate. Not charming, but functional. Clean rooms, adequate bathrooms (hot water works!). No elevator. Rooftop restaurant with reasonable prices and a view of the Taj. If you are only going to spend one night in Agra, this is a great value choice. Nice dormitory for drivers.

Very handy for walking to the Taj Mahal. Though to buy your ticket you have to go approx 600 metres in the opposite direction of the Taj Mahal and then walk back. You get harassed by tuk tuk drivers all the way who don’t seem to understand the concept of the pleasure of walking. Rooms are very noisy, beds not comfortable, lots of stairs, food was ok, internet use was free but there is only the computer on the front desk at reception so don’t plan on staying too long! Service wasn’t great – towels were damp and they tried to take our (almost) dry towels to give to other occupants who complained because their towels were very wet! Possibly dodgy electrical – killed the charger for mobile phone when plucked in to recharge. We had booked a Taj view room (and paid extra for this) and if you pushed your face against the window and looked alongside the hotel wall you could see it. Not at all like the photo of the view which they had emailed me prior to booking the room which showed the Taj very clearly from the bedroom window. Due to cold and fog we used the restaurant downstairs not on the rooftop – it was good that there was a choice. Food was ok. Shame we couldn’t enjoy view of Taj from the roof due to fog. As there are so many tuk tuk drivers to take you to Taj Mahal that you could probably get a nicer hotel further away for a better price.

Hotel is well located just away 500mtrs from Taj Mehal in the city of Agra on VIP area where roads are cleaned. When we reached hotel then we saw the gumbaj of Taj Mehal from the outside. In the rooms, we can also see the view of Taj Mehal and its surrounding areas. But food was not tasty as we thought and drinking water was so salty that we have used to get mineral water in every time. The service was not fast and serving poorly and rate is also high but not matched with the quality. No complementy tea and water are available. Overall hotel is good but its location is the best situated as earlier told.
