Sewers most impressed with the courtyard and our room. Spacious and airy, our double room with no A/C looked like we were staying in a prestigious Greek villa, it was so nice! The courtyard area was a great place to relax - though it did take 30 minutes for our simple order of chai to be delivered.

We been there for two nights and do not like this place. The garden with the restaurant is a good place to relax after a day in Agra but if you ask for borrowing the phone, internet etc.. They just told us that its not working without a smile or a service gesture.

Check if you have a opening under the door,- since we got visit from a rat in the middle of the night.

I stayed at Tourist Rest House for one night during my trip to Agra in early August. My first arrival I had not so good experience with the reception, he didn't seem to be helpful and friendly. The breakfast serve at the hotel was not so good, I ordered banana pancake, it was tasteless and the staff kept me waiting for almost 30 minutes. The room was decent for the price I paid.

Overall, it was so so experience and I think it is safe enough for a solo traveller like myself.

Room Tip: Get the room with aircon since the fan room is anoying and you can't keep your window open due t...

This place was a bit run down but it did what it said it would, which is it gave us a place to stay. Rooms were basic and bathrooms didn't seem to have hot water but it was so hot outside that didn't matter too much. Owner started off a little defensive but seemed to warm to the party I was with made up of 16 students! Auto-rickshaw drivers outside hotel seem to also double up as kitchen staff which was a bit weird and they can be a bit pushy as I think they get commission for taking you to certain shops, but they were quite helpful with early morning run to train station and complimentary pick up on arrival at Agra. Overall a pleasant enough stay if you are not looking for anything fancy or special.

Room Tip: ask for a room NOT on the ground floor unless you want people eating dinner right outside your windo...

This is perhaps the best budget hotel I have ever stayed in.
Clean, tidy and friendly. But most important, the staff value YOU and not just your money. They were so friendly and helpful, and not at all buying in to the sadly omnipresent commission racket that plagues India.

Stay here, you won't regret it!

We arrived at this hotel because we were in Jaipur the day before and we landed there at the very-well managed and nice hotel the Sunder Palace. Since we had a very good experience there this was logical to trust them and book this hotel in Agra (this Tourist Rest House) which belongs to the same owners.

It has been terrible! First of all since we would arrive late at Agra station we have asked them to pick up us. We have suffered from a stupid train employee who made us missing the correct station. We arrived by our means, paying a rickshaw to get there. What was the surprise then while checking-in to be shouted at by the hotel employee who has waited for us at the other station. We had to explain that it was not our fault, we kept asking to the employee many times but he decided to cheat us (why? we still do not know).

Now the room... All the ones we saw where old, not well-maintained so we decided to go for the cheapest one without AC (the room 104 for 550 Rs). It was late so we decided to stay and we were asked to pay in advance (we understood why afterwards!!)

This was in fact really expensive for the value! The toilet was about to collapse, no hot water, the paint of the walls was taken away every time our bags or anything else touched them... The food is not good, service is unfriendly.

The surprise(s):
- When trying to leave the hotel (with the room paid) at 5.45am to go visiting the Taj' we were locked in the hotel and could not get out. An employee who did not speak a word of english made us to understand we had to wait. We thought he did not have the key... No, he was waiting for the approval of the manager before opening the door! Waiting 10 minutes for the manager to take his shower!!!
- There were BED BUGS in the bed! We have been both badly bitten (Room 104 AVOID!!). We kept scratching ourselves for 3 days...
- Internet is being charged but does not work

Avoid this hotel at all costs. We could not believe the reviews made by Lonely Planet, Rough Guide and Le Routard!! They should come back ASAP to see how is this hotel right NOW! This hotel is a slump.

Terrific rooms and friendly, helpful service. Far better than we expected to find for that price in Agra. Restaurant was just ok.
