The walls between rooms are quite thin and you could hear people talking but it was quiet overnight. The guys servicing the room were very nice but the reception staff were...

The Retreat truly is an escape from the hustle-bustle of Agra's busy streets. The staff is unusually welcoming and eager to please. The hotel itself is modern and the rooms are comfortable with modern amenities. I would recommend this hotel to anyone staying in Agra.

This is a very comfortable hotel that is located in the middle of Agra. It is very close to the Taj Mahal and only requires a short tuktuk ride. The breakfast was good. It included Indian food and western type omelets.
