No doubt its a good place to stay and relax for a while with a much justified heritage look. We were upgraded to princess suites room no 201,202,203 for free and rooms were nice and big with excellent wooden interior. We checked in at Saturday morning i.e on 22nd of june 2013 for a one night stay just to see Tajmahal and nearby places. As planned we checked out next day around 11 and as we were paying the bill we came to know that they overcharged us for the things never there in the fridge provided at the mini bar in our rooms. It was their housekeeping staff who gave the wrong information about the missing things from the fridge and after arguing with the manager he debited that amount. So first of all keep an account of the things placed and you are consuming while your stay. Secondly, as soon as we reached delhi/home i came to know that i forgot my shoes in the room so i called up at the reception thrice but the answer was same every time "we are searching for it and we'll call you back if found". That night they never called i guess they were searching for it whole night. Next day i called up again just to confirm if they still searching for it a lady at the reception pick up the phone and told me same line they were taught while training "we are searching for it and we'll call you back if found". So they started the search again and finally when i again called up after an hour or so they told me "we didn't found your shoes". I know for sure that it was that housekeeping staff that stole my shoes as well as booze from the fridge but ultimately it harms the reputation of a nice place to stay.
