Hotel recommendation in Agra- close to the Taj

My sister and I are travelling to Agra for one day/night and are interested in a nice, clean hotel but nothing too expensive.

Does anyone have any advice from experience?

Thanks

Some budget class hotels near Taj are Hotel Sidhartha, Hotel Host, Shahjehan.... range Rs. 500-700/-

Mid range hotels with price Rs. 1000- 2000/- are Hotel Amar Yatri Niwas, Royal Residency, Taj Plaza, Hotel Mandakini Vilas, Hotel Ashish Palace...... You can book on line. There are many but these are with good reputation nd are within walking distance from Taj.

Stayed at Heritage Homestay two weeks ago - excellent and inexpensive. See the reviews !

It is in a quiet area but only 10 minutes by tuk tuk from the Taj.
