“Not a palace”
Reviewed 9 July 2014

First of all I want to put out there that I'm not one of these people that would nit pick at a place where I've stayed. I wasn't impressed with my stay at the Sai Palace. I understand that you get what you pay for but it doesn't excuse a hotel to provide you with absolutely filthy bed sheets. That was my main issue. The other thing was that there was only one plug socket in the room, this being as high up as my head. This meant that I had to charge my phone whilst holding it in my hand. The socket was loose which resulted in my phone being pulled out of my hands and smashing on the floor - smashing your phone in India is not ideal. I know this probably wouldn't happen to anyone else but the plug sockets being high up the wall was a major inconvenience for everything really.

On a positive note the hotel was in a good location and the staff were quite friendly. The restaurant on the top served food which was okay.

I wouldn't particularly recommend or not recommend Sai Palace. For a night it was okay but my general experience there was poor. I'd personally say spend a few pounds more and stay somewhere a little bit more comfortable.

Room Tip: Definitely pay for the superior room

Hotel was in excellent location, bed was comfortable, bathroom was clean, service and wifi was good. AC went out a lot and food in hotel was bland. The rickshaw drivers outside the hotel were aggressive and the one we ended up using on the way out tried to scam us multiple times. Walk out to get another driver.

Run by Sai Baba devotees, Sai Palace is a reasonable place to stay in Agra. It's quite close to the south gate and from the rooftop restaurant there's a good view of the Taj Mahal. We had room number 15 on the top floor, which - incredulously - sports a view of the Taj even from the toilet seat! The restaurant food was quite alright, but if you don't want to dine in house, there are plenty of other options nearby.

"Sai Palace" in Agra (India) is cheap, but clean. It is situated near Taj Mahal and have a good reastaraunt on the roof with Taj Mahal view. But know, that South Gate, where the hotel is situated, are open only from 9 a.m. (at dawn only West and East Gates are open).

Its a budget hotel with walking distance from taj mahal, but hotel staff is very unprofessional and rooms are also not clean as needed. If you are a Indian then please avoid this hotel, they don't know how to treat a guest, i am extremely disappointed with my Agra trip due to this hotel only.

One of the best place if you one to stay at a walking distance of the Taj Mahal. The rooftop restaurant is nice and if you ask for non spicy food you'll really get non spicy! The rooms where ok but nothing more.
