“Could do better”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 20, 2009

We arrived after a very long journey from Jaipur (what a lovely place) and the reception staff were very grumpy. We were taken to our rooms on the fourth floor (via a lift which opened onto an open roof top with piles of rubble) and the porters told us proudly that our rooms were new and only finished a month ago. The room was spacious and well furnished BUT the project manager must be called back. There was a huge stain on the ceiling (obviously a leak from above), the security chain on the door came away in my hand, a towel rail on the shower door fell off when the towel came near, the door lock was very iffy (the lock jambs were not lined up), windows were filthy on the outside obscuring the "view" which could have been a good thing!, worktop over fridge was put on upside down and our friends' bathroom leaked like a sieve with evidence of damp obvious on several walls. This was after one month - future prospects not good!!!
However the bed was wonderfully comfortable and the shower worked well with hot water. The restaurant was good for a simple dinner but horrible for breakfast.
Location is very good for the Taj - and as Agra doesn't seem to have much more to offer just a one night stay seems perfect. Our early morning wake up call (5.30am) didn't materialise. We seem to be very negative but I would recommend this hotel (for one night only!) as it was good value for money.

We stayed at this hotel as part of an Intrepid Comfort tour (north india highlights). We were here for just one night. The hotel is rather impressive from the outside. It's just average on the inside. The rooms were big and clean, but the "view" from the window was nothing but a dirt field of trash. The staff was fine. Breakfast left a lot to desire. You need to turn on the hot water heater in the bathroom to take a hot shower. Power went out a lot.

We stayed for one night and it was a depressing experience.
The room was old and tatty and the whole place was very noisy.
Breakfast was inedible and the service mediocre.
The only thing we could see from our window was a wasteland full of rubbish.
The best advice we can offer is go to Agra and see the Taj Mahal and move on quickly to Jaipur.

This is really a great hotel with it's location, in front of the shopping centres and just a 10 min walk to Taj Mahal...It's also quit new, it's neat and clean, the price is also good...

but we didn't like the customer service...some staff doesn't even communicate in English and when we checked in, I find the reception not helpful enough... they made us wait for a long time...

one more problem is the constant breakdown of the electricity...we we're waken up at 9am when our power shut off...it came on after 10mins... then we forced ourselves to get up...but again at 9,30am when i was in the shower, the lights went off...anyway, they just have to polish in that side i guess...
