Don't judge Ray of Maya by it's surroundings!
We spotted this place from afar actually, since it's exterior are colorful and stood out..as we got closer we started to dread it. When we first arrived I almost thought "oh well thats money down the drain" you had to walk along a small dirt road it felt like walking towards a back-alley motel. So glad we chose this hotel (looking at the state of the area, I doubt we could've done any better) I was relieved to see the stairs up to the lobby was fairly clean and decorated in local motif.
The staff greeted us, very friendly. Checking in was a breeze and was showed to our room, fortunately there were ground staff to help with our 4 big bags up the stairs!
We chose this place for the price & how it looked in pictures, fortunately it was not far off from the real thing. The room was spacious, pretty clean, decent bedding, more local motif wall decorations, good working TV with some international channels. The bathroom was not disappointing.
We got a room facing the back yard so we're a bit protected from the main street noise. The room included breakfast but you had to cross the street to the restaurant.
Location of course is great just a few steps to Taj Mahal entrance. For the price I would recommend Ray of Maya.
