If you're going to visit the Taj Mahal then there is really only one place to stay due to the stunning views of the whole reason that you are in Agra in the first place.
What is not so good however is the service in the restaurant and bars which is sub standard compared to the hotel service in Mumbai for instance. The rooms also are very tired now.
As a property in Agra it has little or no competition and for that reason alone it is the best place to stay but it is would appear this is leading to complacency from the management.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The Taj Mahal is extraordinary as much for what it is as how it has escaped the banality of cliché. For 350 years, this monument evokes a sense of wonder. Only by being there can you witness its true majesty, its symmetry, its setting and the delicacy of its carved marble inlaid with precious stones. Now just suppose you were to overlook it from your hotel room? The Oberoi Amarvilas is 600 metres from this tribute to love. The lavish interiors and elaborate gardens add to the serenity of the scene. The guestrooms are palatial: all have magical views and are luxuriously furnished with traditional fabrics, white marble, hand-crafted ornaments and every modern amenity. There is a luxury spa offering a range of therapies, a swimming pool where snacks and drinks are served; an ornamented ballroom and fine restaurants to suit the international palate. But the lobby lounge is a feast for the eye designed, as it was, around that glorious view of the Taj Mahal. ... more less
