Reviewed 8 April 2012

This hotel is very well run, clean, tidy, modern: it has a roof top swimming pool. The breakfasts were excellant. You are probably the nearest hotel to the Taj: it's a few hundred yards away down the tree lined avenue. Unfortunately, whether night or day the avenue is full of hassle (touts) - they are almost aggressive so we bought nothing and I had to stop myself thumping one of them.

After hotel in Delhi, that was a nice experience.

Our room was very clean and fresh, the bed was comfortable, everything was working perfectly.

We really like the restaurant (good food) and the small rooftop swimming pool.

Note there is only 500 meters to Taj Mahal entrance, so it is very nice to be so close to that wonderful building!

In general we have had a really good stay.

This hotel is certainly a diamond in the rough! It is clean, comfortable and in fantastic proximity to the Taj Mahul. We dined at the restaurant one evening and took advantage of the room service, each time we very much enjoyed our food and drink, all be it pretty pricey. Roof top pool and bar is a bonus and we even had an obscured view of the Taj Mahul from our room. Be aware, bell boys, room maintenance and waiters really do expect a tip for everything and anything, and will go out of their way to help you…at a price. This did get a little frustrating at times, considering you do expect a certain amount of service included in what you pay for your room. That aside, we had a comfortable stay here.

We stayed here with our family at this new property close to the Taj Eastern gate. Great location and fairly good service. Rooms were very spacious with mini-fridge and TV. Bathrooms were clean. There was a nice Terrace swimming pool and a view of the Taj. The only problem was the Air-conditioning and the water pressure control in the bathroom. We could not control the temperature in the room - so it was either too cold or we had to switch it off. The water pressure was ok but was suddenly hot or cold. That was irksome. Otherwise, great property and staff.

Room Tip: Pick a room on the higher floors to avoid noise from the lobby.

Overall the hotel is pretty neat and interiors are done tastefully. The rooms are decent and have all the basic facilities. The bath could have been better, there are no shower curtains so you end up flooding the whole floor. The food is just okay and you could find better outside. The hotel staff were decent.

The biggest advantage is that the hotel is just 5 minutes walk to Taj, so you can take all your strolls, morning or evening, and roam around one of the most beautiful architectures in the world.

Its a modern hotel, nice rooms, well appointed if somewhat 'international'. Actually its all perfectly acceptable without being noteworthy, but with the Taj nearby, why bother to compete?

Staff were not aware Taj ticket office opened at 6.00am (just up the road a bit) although gates opened at 6.30am. 6.30 (ish) to 10.00(ish) is more than enough of the Taj which means that if you have instant coffee (provided) in room you can have a leisurely breakfast at 10.00am when finished. Perfect.
Rickshaw to/from 20 inr, but that was just one person (me) getting tickets to the people in the queue.

Food was (as I remember) perfectly fine.

A good choice for the Taj, definitely!
