Hotel Sheela
Ranked #69 of 142 Hotels in Agra
Reviewed 26 April 2014

If you are back packing and want cheap and cheerful. This is probably your place to stay.
We only had one night, which was enough for me. Bathroom good size and room. Not so clean and top sheets not supplied. Lovely gardens. But ensure you dont get a room on the front driveway. The smell from the ditch running behind the gardens along the side of the hotel was awful. Air conditioning good. Food was not so good. Easy access to east gate and only 15 mins maximum to west gate of Taj.

Room Tip: Dont get room on front driveway

Are you looking for a dump without any customer service but right next to the Taj? If so, this is your place.

It's not particularly clean or nice, but you can't be any closer to the Taj Mahal. It was the right fit for this trip.

The location of this hotel is good, but the rooms are not very good. the beds were not comfortable, our room was damp and musty, and they have cooperations with rickshaw drivers. When it is cold outside, you will freeze in the room, and then it is not comfortable to get your bucket of hot water outside of your room. The laundry service was also not the best, they dried our laundry with smoke;), everything was smelling, still after a few weeks.
After one night, we changed the hotel to the sister hotel Sheela Inn. We had a look to 10 other hotels, but in Agra it is very difficult to find a good and cheap hotel! So in the end, the sister hotel was one of the best options.

This small hotel is located within a stones throw from the Taj Mahal entrance. The rooms are small and so are the bathrooms, but for the walking convenience it's well worth it. Everything is walking distance from this perfect location, the Taj Nature Walk is down the street.

Room Tip: Make sure you have window screens, mosquitos live here.

We stayed here for one night to visit the Taj Mahal, and to be honest, if you can get away with not staying in Agra you trip will benefit. The city itself is very dirty and full of misquotes, like no other place we visited in India. Sheela is okay if you are staying one night. Rooms are clean, it's cheaper then most other places, but so so many misquotes! The food looked average and others we were staying with got quite sick, it may have not been the food from Sheela tho.

My wife had booked a room for us for two nights at Hotel Sheela considering the reviews on this site. We had called the hotel three times to confirm that we had the rooms, because we were travelling dring a long weekend.
The day we reached Agra, the Hotel staff informed us that they were fully booked, and offered us their sister property, which was a little further away. Theyc ould have atleast bothered to call us and inform in advance, which they did not.

the other hotel did not have hot water, and the room service was terrible (they did not provide us towels or soaps ins spite of reminding twice.) And yet during checkout time, they were not willing to reduce the charges for the stay. We were so disappointed by the overall experience that we decided to leave Agra after one night.

Room Tip: Please confirm that they have not changed your hotel at the last minute. Most rooms in the old havel...
