Hotel Sidhartha
Ranked #31 of 142 Hotels in Agra
Reviewed February 27, 2012

I was in due to be in Agra this last weekend ( 25-26th Feb 2012)and was looking for a budget hotel.Booked this hotel after reading reviews on Tripadvisor, what looked promising was its proximity to Taj Mahal's western gate, and its decent rooms at reasonable prices. I got exactly what i expected when i got there, I had booked a non-AC room as it is still relatively cool during this part of the year. I think anyone looking for a budget hotel should not definitely look at Hotel Sidhartha as one of the options.

We looked at 4 rooms the non A/C rooms are not clean and smell bad !! the A/C room had less smell. The bathroom is very old as in a rusted stick to turn on shower. not real bedding sheet on mattress and thin dirty blanket. We didn't stay as although we had ID and the credit card used to book, as per the terms, they demanded our passports and visa which we didnt take for security reasons. The hotel we stayed at insted didn't ask for passport.

Room Tip: get a/c room even if you don't want the a/c as they don't smell as bad.

Just like the title says, cheap, clean and a great location, couldn't fault it.
Except, we we're there late Jan...was freezing...ask for extra sheets, as it's cheap some places charge for these things, well worth it, we weren't prepared

Defo use the place, worth it!

Room Tip: Doubt you'll get a bad one

I stayed two nights at Sidhartha, when I arrived at the Agra train station and asked a rickshaw driver if they knew it, they all did, and I quizzed them to be sure! Sure enough, it is a well known hotel, you won't have any problem finding it.

The location is exactly where you want to be in Agra, it is less than a 2 minute walk to both the ticket office and the entrance to the Taj Mahal. Extremely convenient.

I had a few meals in the Garden Restauant, no complaints and I didn't get sick, so that's good.

The staff are very nice they can give you information about things to do in Agra and how to get around.

Minor complaints: my windows, while locked, had gaps in them. Meaning mosquitos could get inside. I had the basic rooms there without AC and the rooms are close to each other so you will hear your neighbors in the hall. I would say if you had the extra cash, go for the AC rooms, as they looked nicer.

Same day laundry service was really efficient and reasonably priced.

I would stay here again.

I think this hotel is the best in Agra. It's really close to Taj, the hotel is clean, have it's own yard with green. The rooms are not the top like 5 star hotel, but decent. The main features are water heater (so You can have a shower at any time) and soft bed (so You can sleep well while the trip).
About minuses. It's the only one. It's not possible to Taj even from the roof of th hotel. But You will have enough of Taj while day trip ).

We booked this hotel only because of his excellent location only cca 300 m from Taj Mahal west gate and 10 min drive rikshaw to Agra Fort 20 rupies.Room was clean but very old and I never seen before water pipes ih that condition - even for this price of hotel not acceptable.One night we were so hungry and tried food at restaurant - we didn't get sick of it.Staff was polite like in every hotel.If you are picky person with some perfect standards this is not hotel for you but if you looking hotel for budget price with unbeatable location in Agra booked it.

Excellent location: 5 min's walk to Taj Mahal's Western
Gate Great value: it did not charge additional tax and other service fees.
Good sleep quality: it is quiet and nice to stay there
Fair facilities: the facilities are fair but still acceptable, especially considering the price you paid. But keep in mind that they DO NOT have Wifi at all as stated in the booking.com page. if you really need the wifi, go to the nearby Yes Restaurant for meals (they do have wifi and free of charge)
Fair service: some of staff are not very helpful.

In a word, if you care the money more than the service then it is your dish.
