The best trains leaves Delhi to Agra in morning. Intercity is good because it is a short distance train and more chance to get seat.

You may chose hotels by going through the below link

There are too many options available. Train, cabs and buses. it will take hardly 3-4 hours to reach. About hotels you may check review and book accordingly as per your convenient and near by the Taj area.

Hi,

This is also better if you come to Agra by car. it is more easier than train.. you can start from Delhi whenever you like.. Agra has many hotels , it is depend upon your budget...

and find your hotel better on Fatehabad road. it is closer to Taj mahal..

There are many trains through out the day from delhi to Agra. best one is Gatimaan but it leaves in morning at 0810 AM journey time is 1 hr. 40 mts.

To know about other trains you can look at

https://erail.in/

There are many good hotels in each category of budget class / midrange / 5 star near Taj mahal area.

you can look for recommendations as per your budget or can provide your budget to give recommendations.
