Great food, very near to the shops and craft market. Cute little dog and helpful staff. Roof top restaurant and would definately recommend! Listen for the gunshots to scare away the monkey and look down on them from the rooftop and watch them grooming one another! So entertaining

I will recommend this hotel. it is situated in an excellent location just a few steps from the TAJ eastern gate ticket counter(shilpagram). It is just 800 metres away from the TAJ. The room was large and clean also the toilet. The staff of this hotel is very helpful.The cuisines in the rooftop resturant is good.

I can certainly recommend this hotel. Was very clean, room was big, great location - 10 min walk from Taj Mahal. Quite good restaurant on the roof with great Taj view. Good prices and nice, helpful owner, even small owner's dog was very friendly and sweet. Totally great place to stay!

Good value at 500rps per night, very clean double room, basic though. No hot water, it came out if the tap brown, no toilet roll, towel or guest soap. Wifi on terrace and in reception only, no tv but I didn't require it.

Staff very helpful and friendly and walking distance to the East Gate of the Taj. Very quiet though and if you're looking for a livelier hotel there is one near the Taj called Shanti with a roof garden overlooking the top of the Taj.

A neat clean hotel with location advantage. Very near to TAJ. No HOT water, but good place to stay. We tried many hotels by way of middleman they were expensive and stinking. This hotel we found on trip advisor was way up in terms of price, cleanliness and location. Tea was good, didn't try food. Visitors from INDIA must surely give this hotel a try.

Room Tip: Top floor rooms are not having TV presently but are new, spacious and well decorated.

it was close to the east gate and the staff were friendly too, the room was I guess what you pay for the bathroom wasnt the cleanest. We ate at the roof resturant which is where I am pretty sure I got sick.

This hotel has a good location. With its nearness to the Taj Mahal, it is a good place to stay for those with a budget. The room that we were given was not worthy of the rate they charged me (800 Rs PER DAY!!). The décor for the room was tasteless and the bathroom’s hygiene factor was questionable. However our room had a view of the Taj Mahal but that did not make up for the lack of basic amenities. The so called “RoofTop Restaurant” with the flowers was a pathetic attempt to cash in on its nearness to the Taj mahal due to which it was always in view. The food however was cheap and fresh. I saw many lone travelers here. I would recommend it only for backpacker’s or lone travelers with a budget.
