We are currently staying at the hotel and have been listening to wedding music outside for the past 3 hours. It's so loud that the walls are literally shaking and our earplugs have been no help at all. It's way louder than any rock concert. I usually don't mind things, however this is absolutely ridiculous. I've called the hotel and they finally requested for the music to be turned down at 11:30pm. So far, no success. Be forewarned!

Only stayed one night but thought the hotel was well appointed with nice linen and toiletries supplied. The rooms were not very sound proof so any noise in the corridors could be heard. The hotel had efficient lifts and provided a hearty breakfast. The hotel was reasonably close to the Taj Mahal the main reason for our visit

The Taj Vilas are very, very clean and nice. The room I was in was very comfortable and modern. The location could not be better for the Taj Mahal as it is within walking distance but far enough to be out of the craziness surrounding the Taj.

The Vilas offered great service for our large group of 30 and took all of our bags to our room. We were also more than happy to have a breakfast buffet in the morning!

This modern hotel offers good value, the room was spacious and bright with ceramic floor tiles throughout, there was a 36” flatscreen, mini-fridge, coffee maker, a room safe, ceiling fan, AC unit, efficient LED lighting and free wi-fi. The bathroom was modern and very clean, with lots of toiletries, towels and hot water, and the included breakfast buffet with hot and cold entrees was quite adequate and delicious. Check-in and check-out was fast and the staff was friendly.

The hotel is located pretty close to the Taj Mahal. About 2km walk to the East gate (20~30 minutes walk).

The room was ok, nothing special. It had a fridge, kettle, TV. We had absolutely no view – only a view of the next building about 5m away. They first gave us a lower floor and we had to ask for a higher flower as we were not getting much light. They never changed our bed sheets (not sure if this is the standard practice in India). The bed sheets were pilled and very uncomfortable. They need to change more often….

The breakfast was average. We had a lot better in India so a bit of disappointment. Some restaurant staff were quite nice but the front desk staff were not. They were not at all helpful and we didn't enjoy interacting with them at all. You can tell that they were only interested in getting money from you and didn't feel genuine.

I don’t think we will ever come back to this hotel nor recommend this hotel to anyone.

Room Tip: Request higher floor...

We stayed at this property in the month of April 2014 for couple of nights on the suggestion of our tour planner and I must say it was a brilliant choice. Of course were positives and the negatives which i have detailed below....

The positives first... It had everything as one would expect on a leisure vacation... a super swift check in (120 seconds and we were on the way to our room).... a spic and span room... a comfortable bed to relax and rejuvenate... courteous staff.... The courteousness of the staff was the highlight of the stay with them accommodating all my requests with a smile.... the location is also brilliant considering its proximity to the main city and the majestic marble wonder.

The negatives... Considering the quality of the Hotel one would naturally expect the F&B to be as good.. Unfortunately, it was a major let down. We were booked on the MAPAI package which included the breakfast and one major meal... however we just had one meal and could not gather the courage to try out another one. The food was bland and tasteless.... so was the breakfast even though there was variety. I jokingly asked my wife which was the best item on the menu... she said "undoubtedly the curd"... this is sad considering the overall hotel experience.

Other than that it was a supremely comfortable stay .. if we ever happen to visit the city again... The Taj Vilas would be my choice barring the food unless their chef changes.... I would have rated the Hotel a hands down 5/5 if it were not for the food.

Tips :
1. Pind Baluchi... KFC.... McDee in the vicinity for food options....
2. make sure trips to the atm are post dinner since it would suffice for a 2km nightwalk too (to the nearest atm... if working... if not another 2).
3. Request for a room on the higher floors to avoid the thumping music from the banquet hall in the basement.
