“Budget stay with all basic amenities”
Reviewed August 13, 2014

The location of this rest house itself is a big perk.the Taj Mahal ,red fort,market everything is within 10 min distance from here.simple but sufficient in itself,this place is even liked by many foreigners.Best part of the hotel is the centre lawn where u can dine and it's fort style exteriors.staff is co-operative.if u are looking for a lavish stat,skip this one as it's a basic place with clean rooms,affordable tariff and all what u need for a comfortable stay.thumbs up guys,u gave a memorable stay to my family :)even the naughty monkeys visiting hotel daily morning were a treat.

Room Tip: Try to take corner rooms as they are big and because there is no lift,if going with adults,book grou...

From the street this guesthouse doesn't live up to the quality of the rooms inside. The rooms are set around a courtyard shrouded with trees and a few tables, which are a little inconveniently set outside rooms but seem ok to sit around during the day&early evening. The air conditioned room we had was far bigger than the fan room for an extra 300 rupees, it is definitely worth the price. The downside to our room are the slightly damp towels&the third bed was a mattress on the floor. Otherwise a nice hotel a short tuk tuk ride from the Taj Mahal.

We stayed here for a few days in january.Everything right from booking online, talking to the owner on the phone, pick up from the station in the wee hours.....was perfect.We had booked the 1200 rs room which was spacious with clean linen, large clean bathroom with hot water,complimentary room heater for the damp and freezing weather was just right.At this price you can't get anything better.Food was delicious and cheap I specially loved the alloo tamater veg and the banana custard.Anil Wadhwa and his father are perfect hosts.
Please remember this is a budget family run hotel and don't have high expectations.

Room Tip: newly refurbished rooms are better.

The hotel, in my opinion is adequate and for the price has actually decent amenities: AC, wifi, food service, laundry service, and a small roll of toilet paper ( a lot of the budget places in India don't supply toilet paper lol)

That being said, don't expect a 5 star hotel. The AC in my room wasn't perfect and the frequent power outages in Agra impaired its effectiveness (not really the fault of the hotel, but their backup generator is weak as well). The wifi didnt reach into my room on the 2nd floor and I was told wifi only works in the corridors and courtyard. The hotel staff is hit or miss: some are very hospitable, others slightly rude. Having breakfast in the courtyard is pleasant, but the food is only "ok"

Overall, this place is good for budget travelers for the wide range of amenities. But if you're willing to spend more there are nicer places in Agra.

The hotel is very nice clean and fresh, we stayed for three nights. A true address from lonely planet and their words written are upto the mark. We came in the hotel with a rickshaw driver and paid Rs 70(as already head from the hotel from phone). They do not hassle you in opting different city tours, but used to aware us and tell the best price you can get.
After check in we went to our room which was clean and big as we booked a large room with air con which was value for money enough.
In the evening we have decided to take dinner outside the nearby close and reputed restaurant DASAPRAKASH and came back around 10.00Pm and decided to have desert in the hotel itself. We ordered a custard Banana which was new to us and was yummy also.
We booked tickets to khajuraho and Varanasi form the hotel which was a very nice service, at least one is not standing in a long queue to wait..
The staff is nice and always keen to know that if everything is ok or not …
We really like the place and especially the garden area…
We recommend this hotel to our friends and family …

Room Tip: new rooms on the second floor
