Just came back from my trip to Agra; I stayed there in this lovely hotel. It truely is a 5 star. It is located just 1.5 km from the taj mahal and hence is a good choice to stay.
I stayed at their Superior room which was city facing the view outside was not very nice as it overlooks a very busy crossing of agra.
The room was very comfortable and the hotel staff was very polite and courteous; They have a terrace top restaurant from where u get a view of the Taj. We could not see it at dinner time because of the dense fog but saw it the next day.
The restaurants and coffee shop of the hotel are above average.
One of the problems I faced is that the hotel does not have proper directions marked to reach it and also the local people are not familiar with its name. Even all the auto walas were unable to guide us in one go.
Overall I loved this place and would definitely recommend this for a stay
