“Summer Bonanza in Agra”
Reviewed 21 August 2014

In the hot sultry month of July, we were 4 couples with 3 kids, and decided to take a break from the heat and drove to Agra, into Radisson Blu. wonderful drive from Delhi and very interseting hotel ! the first thing that strikes you is the service rendered by the staff - extremely humble, polite and assisting ! Fairly large rooms with excellent cooling, room service, house keeping staff and good facilities. thank fully it rained over the week end and viewing The Taj Mahal monument became a blissful pleasure with the kids enjoying the shuttle rides provided by the the Hotel, and the horse carriage ride on the way back ! A delightful week end, with lovely dining options within the hotel !

Room Tip: try to get a room with the Taj Mahal view !

I had visited this hotel last week. ITC Maurya was highly recommended by my friends. But after reading user reviews of Radisson on Trip advisor I decided otherwise and booked Radisson. I must say the experience surpassed the user reviews. Notable points: 1) Location is great rather best after Amarvilas. It is on the same road as Amarvilas and just 1.5 kms from Taj east end gate (this is the preferred gate used by Foreigners and guests staying in flagship hotels). There is a free shuttle from Radisson to Taj and back. It comes within 10 minutes on placing a call with driver/hotel. 2) Property: Very mordern and well kept. Really liked the rooms and the lobby area. I could see Taj dome from my room. Cool stuff. 3) Food: Buffet spread is very good and food quality is great. Complimentary evening snacks and drinks is welcome addition. We had to skip dinner on all the days since the snacks were so heavy. 4) Service: Par excellence whether in the restaurant, housekeeping or as basic as valet parking. The hotel was full on the 15th August and the restaurant was running at full capacity, still the level of personalized service was 100% spot on. 5) Taj show: The complimentary show on Taj and its interesting facts. Its a must before visiting Taj and gives a fresh perspective to look at Taj. Great value for money. Keep it up!!!!

I found this place is best for family holiday. It has got Play room for children, nice spa and the best is buffet. Radisson is near to east gate of Taj Mahel. The best time to visit Taj is in morning at 6:00 AM, its 15 min walk from Radisson to Taj. Location is perfect.

Very comfortable stay, Good rooms, Neat and Clean Hotel, Great Ambience but Food prices are comparatively High. One thing more the internet wifi is very slow. I think they should switch to 3g or 4g for better performance.

I booked the hotel through booking.com on an extremely busy weekend (15th August 2014). This was a family getaway and I wanted a property that could engage my 2 year old son as well. I was skeptical about the decision until I reached the hotel. The staff was extremely warm and despite all the bookings, they paid attention to every detail. The facility was fantastic and every detail mentioned on the site was accurate. The entire staff was extremely hospitable, right from the reception to the pool side. The food was nice with good variety on the menu and buffet. A peaceful hotel where a family can enjoy some good time together. Kids room is a very nice touch to keep kids engaged. Highly recommended.

We stayed with our two daughters aged two and seven in April 2014. We travelled to see the Taj Mahal so this hotel is a good option for the Taj Mahal as it is very close to it and the hotel has shuttle service which is quite good. We would recommend this hotel as it is good value for money.

What we really liked:

- Reservation was simple
- Its proximity to Taj
- Has all basic amenities like a swimming pool, gym, restaurants, etc
- the play area for kids near the swimming pool is nice. The baby sitter is friendly. Our kids enjoyed playing with the toys here
- The reception staff is helpful. Neha at the front desk/reception is quite helpful and friendly. She organized our shuttle to the Taj at our convenient time
- the driver for the shuttle is very courteous and helpful
- the beds are comfortable
- Washrooms are clean
- They took our complaint of staff not being too helpful well. They tried to undo the damage

What could be better:

- We had our lunch on the first day at the coffee shop. The restaurant was adequately staffed but we had to call them several times to even serve water. And we had two small kids at the table but the staff wasn't bothered. They were either chatting or attending to foreigners. There is an outright bias towards foreigners and large foreigner groups
- Everybody at the hotel keeps mentioning that we should write a review about the hotel and name them on tripadvisor. Seems like they are forced to say this and are quite keen on a good review on TA. It gets overbearing after a while. They ask you to remember their names for the review!
- Food is average
- Rooms need a makeover. Walls are chipped. Lamp bulbs don't work. Need better supervision to monitor this
- No proper signage to reach the hotel. We drove to the hotel from Gurgaon, Delhi. The drive to Agra from Delhi is perfect with the new expressway. We reached in 3 hours.
- this is fairly small property so we missed a nice garden or a good view from the room


We booked the deluxe room on the second floor which had the swimming pool view but it also had the view of the under constructed buildings nearby so nothing great.

Stayed April 2014

Dear Valued Guest,

It was a pleasure to have you stay at The Radisson Blu, Agra recently. Thank you for taking the time to review us on TripAdvisor and giving a detailed review about what you liked and what can be improved in the hotel.

Not only does it give me the opportunity to address the issue, and find a way to fix the problem, it also demonstrates your desire for our hotel to improve in our service to you and all of our Guests. I truly welcome comments from our Guests, both positive and negative, because it is the only way I can learn what our Guests are experiencing when visiting our hotel.

We are delighted to read such encouraging comments for the hotel and the team who are equally pleased with your feedback and join me in thanking you. The hotel is located very close to the iconic monument of Love- “Taj Mahal.” After a day of exploring historical sites, relax in the spa or outdoor pool and dine at one of the on-site hotel restaurants. You can rest in comfortable, spacious rooms with convenient amenities.

We look forward to the opportunity of welcoming you back on your return visit to Radisson Blu, your home in Agra.

Warmest Regards,
