“Re-Visited”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 May 2014

We re-visited Trident, Agra in August 2013. Very good Hotel and Service. Mr. Virmani upgraded us to Suite Room. My experience is that, they have exceeded the expectations. The Trident Holidays offer is very good, especially family with Kids. The Kids Club is a place for children to be. Breakfast is healthy and Super. Close proximity to Taj Mahal and Agra Fort. True value for Money.

The Trident Hotel in Agra is a very nice place to stay while visiting the Taj Mahal and the Red Fort. It offers the luxury of the Trident Hotels with very friendly and helpful staff and excellent food. You most certainly will enjoy the great garden with a lovely pool area and lots of sun chairs to relax.
Only minus point: A large number of pidgeons uses the pool as drinking bowl and flies onto the sun chairs. The hotel should undertake some efforts to keep the birds away from the pool and chairs!

The staff at this hotel are friendly and try really hard to do the right thing - they are helpful, polite and competent. We stayed here for a few nights. The bottom line is that they understand what travellers want and provide it well. It's close to the Taj Mahal but not so close that you get annoyed by touts.
The food at this hotel is exceptionally good. The vegetables are mainly grown by the hotel and are cleaned in filtered water - so you can eat and enjoy the salads here, which are delicious. They were happy to make dosa masala for us for breakfast, which came with a whopping curl of dosa that was crunchy and the potato filling was spicy and yum. The head chef is friendly and handsome (and very charming) and went out of his way to make sure that customers were happy. He runs a good team of staff, too.
The room was very clean, quiet and quite large, with a view of the central courtyard.
We loved being able to sit around the pool and relax, and it was quite low-key.
The only think i didn't like was the industrial strength fumigation for mosquitoes, which seemed to be largely ineffective as they were all around us an hour later. The entire courtyard was obscured by the fumes. I don't know a good way to deal with this problem, however, there must be a better and safer way! We saw a French girl continue to sit outside and write in her diary and drink, while it was all happening and wondered if she understood the health implications of ingesting or breathing in all of those chemicals.
We also used the hotel drivers and although not super cheap, have modern and safe cars with seatbelts. We used the car to get to Fatepuhrsikri, which is definitely worth the trip.

The Trident is a comfortable hotel ideal for a short stay to visit the Taj Mahal and all Agra has to offer. Rooms are comfortable, offer good quality beds, are very clean and have all you need for your stay. Whilst perhaps not luxury they proved to be more than adequate for us during our two night stay. The hotel has a relaxed feel but is close to the bustle of Agra, and provided the best massage we had during our tour of North India. It has excellent friendly staff and a good range of food on offer at mealtimes. The terrace in the evening is the ideal location to relax after a packed day of sightseeing. We’d recommend this hotel when visiting Agra.

A nice location close to Taj Mahal ! Location is peaceful and ambience is pleasant. Staff was responsive and helpful. I visited Taj early morning hours as per advice of staff (I still remember especially Tarang) and visited few other places. He provided extended support with computer services too. I wished kids activities could be made more attractive and interesting. Overall experience was excellent.

This is a low footprint hotel, organic vegetables grown in their own garden and served up at dinner set the tone.

The rooms were very clean and comfortable and again low key. What made this a really special experience for us though was the staff. They were wonderful, it was like coming home ! They were friendly, happy and fun. While they all thoroughly deserve a pat on the back, it was their tall chef, who really shone out. Nothing was any trouble and he and his staff took the time to explain everything to us, point out things we should try and if there was something we wanted in particular it was arranged without any fuss.

This is where my wife rediscovered her breakfast penchant for dhosa masala, fresh and cooked to order and where I fell in love with omelette masala (extra spicy). The food was fantastic, beautifully prepared and we'd go back there just to have dinner ! Importantly, next door was the bar which seemed to operate a telepathic link with the kitchen and to our table.

We were so taken by the hotel and its lovely people that we almost forgot that we were there specifically to see the Taj Mahal !

The pool was a welcome relief to the heat of the day and the only small chink was the early evening fumigation for mozzies. It seemed to be a bit heavy handed for such an otherwise low profile footprint. It meant that we couldn't stay by the pool and had to retreat indoors to seek solace at the bar !

Overall this was a great experience.
