I stayed here for 4 nights in october 2010. Booked the room prior to departure, which apparently was a good idea, as I meet a few people who had to look somewhere else, as the hotel was fully booked...
It is not in the upper ranges and the bathroom is basic, with cold water etc. But what I really enjoyed, was the fantastic garden and the perfect location right next to the entrance to the Taj.
Maybe slightly out of this context, but Agra was a dump for me, and had it not been for the Taj, I doubt I would ever go there. And that is where the brilliant garden, with its calm and relaxed atmosphere really showed its value... As a place to retreat from the madness :-)
I had most of my meals in the garden, and I loved it, no stomach issues there, maybe luck, but it seemed just fine for me.
Aircondtion... hehe :-) That was a bit funny; looked like an old car engine ventilator, diesel, full blast through a bale of hay, through the window. But my room had a ventilator in the ceiling, so it kept me fairly cool during the nights...
I would not hesitate to stay there again, keeping in mind that it is NOT upper class 5 star, but basic accommodation right next to the Taj Mahal...
