Our room (non-ac, ground floor) was basic but spacious and clean. As stated in other reviews it's walls were wet and the whole thing feels more like a bunker than anything else. It takes some time (up to 3min running water) to get hot water from the shower when it works. Wifi was only available at the restaurant in the courtyard - food is not special but good (but party music totally not fits to the scenery).
Our experience with the staff was divided - the two men at the front desk were helpful (we changed the room), but it's not unusual to wait a long time for staff in the restaurant that will be unfriendly anyway.
We stayed for 3 nights (too much for Agra) because we fell sick and stayed a lot in the room and courtyard - not recommendable (TV didn't work in both rooms if you bother). Try to get one room in a hostel close to the Taj, otherwise if you just stay for one night it's not the worst place. Let them show you some rooms on different floors before you decide!
