“Perfect budget hotel”
Reviewed July 15, 2010

A very budget hotel but with good room and stay. You can have a view of the Tajmahal also but so great. It is better to have food outside. Good economical option for a night stay.

The rooms are a bit sketchy, the owner was really nice though. Bring your own bed sheet, the "white" linens were kind of brown

Location was great but a bit expensive for a room during low season with no AC

Hotel Kamal is located in a perfect spot to noodle around and enjoy the city. The hotel is clean, very simple, bucket showers, little restaurant on top and all you really need for a backpacking adventure through India. Lovely staff as well.

OK, so we read the reviews on this hotel and thought ...what the heck, it's only for one night and we are only there to see the Taj Mahal.
The view from the rooftop is great....went up at sunrise and it was truly wonderful.
The hotel is right around the corner from the Taj entrance(forgot which gate), so there's no hassle getting there through the horrendous traffic...it's only a few minutes walk.
So, that's where the good stuff ends....this hotel is filthy. I'm not that fussy....I don't mind old and worn...but dirty I hate! The rooms have not seen a cleaning cloth or detergent for a good long while...even the toilets! Take your thongs and a towel...even the hire towels are grey and thread bare.
Enjoyed the wedding parades on street out front...not the hotel's doing though!
Don't know about the food...judging by the state of the kitchen, we didn't want to chance it. I think there are better deals at other hotels...give it a miss.

Though it does not look very impressive from outside and little difficult to find out but it is a good place for budget travelers for a short stay. Though situated at the end of a narrow lane but cars can go right in front of the hotel. There are the facilities of cyber café, restaurants and shops of necessary items like film, battery, packaged water, cold drinks, snacks etc in the vicinity. Taj is only 5-7 minute walk from the hotel and it has a nice view of Taj from its roof top. I booked two deluxe rooms @ INR 900.00 for one night during the first week of November this year and stayed there with my elderly parents. Rooms were very clean though little claustrophobic (as they had only one window), toilets were moderately clean. There was provision of hot water though little unreliable as it was coming from a central heating unit. Like most of the budget hotels they do not provide soap, towel or toilet rolls. Food was good and reasonably priced. They serve food at room otherwise one can avail their roof top restaurant facility. Mr. Sandeep Arora the owner of the hotel is very prompt in answering e-mails and a very cooperative person. Staffs were also very helpful.

Agree with most other reviews, this hotel is good for the view and not much else. It doesn't have hot water, like advertised, and i think people should avoid the rooftop restaurant. It has a weird vibe and i never felt quite comfortable there. One annoying incident was we were scheduled to catch and early morning train to Jaipur and left the hotel at about 5am. We found that the gates were locked so we had to wake up the workers sleeping in the reception section, but they couldn't find the key to the gate. We had to wait about half an hour for them to eventually find the key after much searching. While it wasn't a big deal it just demonstrated the lack of efficiency and also lack of care for guests. They didn't once apologise for they delay or really say anything to us at all while they were searching. Rooms are clean though, it is so close to the Taj and the view is great.
I wouldn't want to stay there for any longer than one night, but if you are only in Agra to quickly see the Taj, this place will be good for you.
