“Close to Taj Mahal, but..”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 October 2012

This is a long overdue review. We stayed for two nights in Aryan resort in November 2011.
Plus sides: owner is very friendly, food is good, walkable distance to the Taj Mahal.
But the minus sides are quite big: there are no windows in the rooms (there is an opening way up the wall that gives minimal daylight, but you can't see through it), it is close to a mosque and the call to prayer in the morning resonates through the room, and food takes a long, long, very long time to get prepared at the restaurant. There were some problems also with the generator at the time, so we were without lights for a while.

Stayed November 2011, travelled with family

I would totally recommend staying here for your visit to the fabulous Taj Mahal and the Red Fort. Everyone was kind and helpful, the food was delicious. They go out of their way to be of assistance. Loved my stay there.

We spend around 6-7 hours there, freshened up and moved to taj and agra fort. The place is really close to the eastern gate of taj, walkable distance and less crowded compared to other gets. There are issues related to electricity, but may be they are common across other hotels as well.

Rooms are clean, comfortable. Same goes with the bathrooms. The owners are quite friendly and helpful if you need any information.

We were very spoiled with the food and attention given to us while we stayed at Aryans Taj Resort. My friends were even picked up by the owner - when the called from the taxi who couldn't get through the vehicle barricades. The street is quiet since cars aren't allowed this close to the Taj and it is close enough to all the action without being consumed in it - a welcome respite! The Nature Walk across the street is a bonus - complete with amazing Taj views.
The food was absolutely excellent, great value for an affordable price - we really enjoyed the skill and attentiveness of the chef.
Best location, best food, best price!

Stayed here for the one night we were here in Agra. This place is very close to the Taj Mahal East gate (5 min. walk) and directly opposite the Taj nature walk. It's very ideal if you want to see the sunrise at the Taj Mahal (just be sure to buy the entry tickets at the ticket office, which is not at the East Gate! But very close by in the opposite direction from the hotel).

The rooms and bathrooms are fairly clean. The staff are friendly and helpful. The restaurant, albeit vegetarian, serves good food. The room rates are decent, nothing too much. Overall, a good place and a nice stay.

The attached gift shop is also excellent! The prices here for souvenirs are very decent and I would recommend anyone to buy their souvenirs from here! The same items in the usual touristy areas are easily twice as much or more!

Rooms are a decent size and the staff is very friendly. They also serve good food, better then many other places in this area!
On the downside thought 1200rps was a bit overpriced. There is a mosque nearby that goes on and on from 4am onwards, bring earplugs!

Good: Clean. Location. I would have given them a plus for reading lights over the bed if they worked.

Bad: Just about everything else. Room was dark, furniture was beat-up, no top-sheet on the bed (but they did give us one.) Noisy fan was running full blast and we never did figure out how to turn it off. Bathroom had no hot water, no soap and no shower enclosure. When we got there, room had no towels or toilet paper. Bed was hard, pillows were uncomfortable.

Was barely tolerable for 1 night.

Room Tip: IMPORTANT: Some light switches are hidden behind the small mirror on the headboard. Rm 101 is pa...
