“Amazing Agra”
Reviewed 26 December 2012 via mobile

Firstly the hotel offers a fantastic view of the Taj Mahal from the roof top restaurant. The hotel staff was very helpful. The service of the hotel was impeccable and the staff always had a smile on their faces. The location of hotel is an added bonus.

The hotel is ideal for a short stay in Agra. Everything about the hotel is good. It is very clean and the rooms are very well equipped with a/c, cable tv and very good bathrooms. The staff are all helpful and it's good value for money (it was very quiet when we stayed there so that may have gone some way for us getting a good deal). The location is great, it's just off the main road where there are plenty of eating places and it's easy to pick up rickshaws to the Taj Mahal etc.
Overall- I'd definitely recommend it!

We checked into this hotel, nice location and decent hotel for the price we paid for... spacious room and good bathroom... over all our stay there is decent. ATMs and eatery places are nearby so right in the city and closest to TAJ

It was a good hotel, 10mins by rickshaw to the Taj Mahal. The staff was helpful, the reception desk provided all the required information. There was an electricity power off at a certain moment and the elevator was not working, so had to climb down all 4 floors - not very funny for the price I paid. It was quite funny to see the staff sleeping in the lobby room, I think they should do it some other place. All in all, I would recommend my friends to go there if they are staying in Agra.

This was the last hotel on the Golden Triangle Tour, this was our least favourite. The elevator was way too small, but that was typical. The staff was helpful, in my opinion I think the staff sleep in the vacant rooms and do not change the linens. The glasses in the room were dirty, room itself and bathroom were clean. I had free internet service, however it was slow. I ordered food and the clerk forgot to place my order so I had to wait about 2 hours for room service. Check-in was a little much, too much information required. The staff slept on the sofa and on the floor of the lobby area, that was sad to see.

To my mind, the hotel's excellent location. Near wineshop and another shop where they sell even milk. Just passing forward, turn right and you'll find many restaurants for each taste and wallet. To the southern entrance to Taj Mahal there are 10 minutes by walk. Generally Fatehabad Road is the place where you should stay in Agra. The most considerable thing about this hotel is the upper terrace with restaurant taurant and excellent view to Taj Mahal in illumination. The railway station Agra Fort and Red Fort itself are very near. You can reach them even even by walk (only a couple of kilometers).
But all the advantages of this hotel finish on that. However, the hotel rooms are relatively clean, but linens are not very fresh. Internet seems to be there, but very slow and constantly breaking. It is better to surf in it in the morning. Officially you can use your credit card for payment, but the machine does not work, and you had to pay in cash. I've witnessed the scene, when the man at reception desk claimed cash payment from the man from Danemark. They had disputed governmental taxes. We've realised then, that it was a good idea for us during check-in to insist on total payment, incuding all taxes and fees. Hotel staff isquite helpful, but too intrusive soliciting tips. But this is typical of most Indian hotels.
Next time we'll consciously miss this hotel.

This is a good choice for someone on a budget, I just stayed here when taking my friend to see the Taj. It was calm and quiet room, comfortable bed and ok cleanish bathroom. Staff tried to be helpful. No huge complaints but not great just basic place. Oh intranet was kinda fast too on the plus side. Very nice staff who tried hard to please.

Room Tip: Our Higher up room was nice and quiet
