We stayed here while visiting the Taj Mahal. The hotel was very relaxing in contrast to the general chaos of Agra. Our room was nice although a little dated and somewhat musty when we first arrived (likely due to the A/C initially being off). The courtyard was nice, but again it was a little rougher than what the professional photos might lead one to believe.
What set this hotel apart was the staff and in particular the dining staff at breakfast. I have truly never have a finer breakfast experience. The staff were so gracious and truly 'waited' us. At at times at least one waiter was about 10 feet from our table, trying to anticipate what we wanted before we actually wanted it.
In summary, I don't know if I would stay here based on the rooms/facilities alone, but I would definitely recommend it based on the staff.
