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.
