“Loved the Place”
Reviewed 25 January 2010

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

Centrally located, close to the marketplaces, and luxuriously comfortable. The view is ok, there are no open spaces, and the buffet was ordinary.

We stayed here for one night on a whistle stop tour of Agra, we arrived late in the evening without a booking and were accommodated promptly with a double toom. The room was clean, fresh and spacious with a decent buffet breakfast on offer.
Good standard of hotel for a short stay though a little dated in terms of the interior. We made use of the spa on arrival and enjoyed a foot and back massage.
Spa is a little dated also but staff were accommodating considering the short notice. Door man was very friendly and chatted to us while we waiting for our driver and tour guide for over 30mins at 6.20 in the morning.
Word of advise, the taj mahal doesnt open till after 7am so arriving for sun rise doesnt mean arriving at the crack of dawn!

It is only about 2 kilometers to the Taj Mahal.
Good class hotel in Agra
Huge hotel, beautiful and cozy not only from inside, but from outside too. And it is not so costly at the same time. Also the hotel has the ayurvedic health club.

We stayed in this hotel over the new year 2009-2010.
The room was clean and nice. The staff were polite, helpful, and efficient. The travel desk guy helped us book Taj Night View tickets at the last minute. Many thanks to him! (I think his name was Amit or something.)
Restaurant food was good value for money and tasty compared to other places in Agra.
We had a great time at the New Year's Eve party at the hotel.

Keep it up Mr. Yuvneet Suri!...
