Right form the start we knew staying here was a bad idea!..
The complimentary pick up at the train station - IS A SCAM!!!...we called 2 times the
day before arriving to confirm the room and a pick up car - and was told not to worry they know we are coming also a car will be waiting.
On our way to Agra we called reception to let them know we were arriving at the station in 15 mins x 2 times - no answer, we called the cell phone that was given to us x 2 times and no one answered...we arrived at the station no one was there!...OK - so we caught a taxi! when we arrived i asked where our taxi was - the guys behind the counter look said it all "WHAT TAXI"!!!!....
Told to wait in reception as our room was not ready - we did...and in the 15 mins of waiting we witnessed 2 customers complaining to the man behind the counter about the hot water / geyser in the room they have not working...after looking some what baffled (like he did when i asked about our COMPLMENTAR TAXI)... the guy behind the counter told them to fill in a complaint book...but the couple didn't want to complain they wanted it fixed.!(lost in translation)
So here we were sitting in reception - thinking the other people around us were guests...NO - HELLO - they are workers stilling around - obviously none of which was a plumber...he he he
So we went to our room - ground floor - clean, but noisy as right out side i guess the grounds men like to hang about our window..
The room service here was ok - but confusing as trying to figure out who was an employee and who was a guest - is a game they like to play i think...even trying to figure out who was the manager and who was the cook was a hassle!
Pay more money stay else where!
