“Good location n good price”
Reviewed January 13, 2011

A good hotel with a great location, great view of the Taj Mahal from the rooftop restaurant. Service is OK but do not expect very clean rooms etc as standard of cleanliness is different in India...

Decent hotel. Good price though and it's close to the Taj Mahal which is very important. Also down the East Gate road which has a bunch of vendors with souvenirs if you don't want to walk far.

The room itself wasn't fantastic but we were on the top floor and a few steps from the rooftop which was the real draw. The view of the Taj Mahal from the roof is great. The food in the restaurant is just ok but we sat with a couple of beers for a bit without any trouble. The service was very attentive. We also had a view of the Oberoi which is right next door. And the restaurant across the street was pretty good.

Bathrooms were ok with hot water. The toilet did seem like it had just been used so I wiped it down before we used it. The one very weird thing about the bathroom was the grate that opened up into the hallway, meaning everyone walking through could hear us in the bathroom...and we could hear them...

Internet wasn't free but they had a few computers available right in the lobby.

If you're only in Agra for one night, which is really all I think you'd need, then it's ok.

It's close to Taj Mahal so it was the only reason to book it. Price was ok for this kind of hotel. In the train I met a couple who booked it (what a coincidence) and they had prepaid taxi so it was supposed to be free for me. At the end of the journy driver asked me to pay extra 100rp. It's peanuts but regarding to the indian prices paying extra 100 for 200 already paid was more then enough.

The staff were friendly with a licensed restaurant-not a given in Agra! Our room was basic but had a taj view but no fridge or kettle however it was clean.

Our main issue was there was only luke warm water for washing no matter what time of the day you tried.

Overall a good hotel for a budget/mid range stay.

The hotel is an excellent budget hotel. Tajmahal eastern gate is within walking distance. The rate, services, room condition and sizes, restaurant etc are also excellent. However the main drawback is that the hotel uses underground water which is very much salty and is problemetic for bathing.

It is an excellent budget hotel. It has also a good restaurant. But the rates of the restaurant is a bit high. The position of the hotel is also excellent. It is within walking distance from the eastern gate of the Tajmahal. The services and behaviour of the staffs are also very good. Only one drawback is that the hotel use underground water which is salty. They do not use municipal supply water.

The hotel is perfectly situated, in the park around the Taj Mahal, very quiet, so you can walk around in the night without any hassle. And be the first in line in the morning to see the Taj.
The staff is really helpful and always nice, no matter how annoying you are :)
The room was tiny and not very clean, but had the view of the Taj. The view from the rooftop restaurant is great, and the food was good, too. But prepare to wait if you are eating upstairs. On the other hand, the service in the restaurant by the reception was the quickest in India.
