Even though the location is close to the Taj Mahal and the view is nice from the rooftop, every single other part of this hotel is NOT nice. The staff wasn't friendly or helpful at all in terms of buying tickets to Taj or anything else in Agra. The room was moldy and smelly- walls with black mold all over. The bathroom was so gross - we didn't' want to touch anything- the faucets, spigots were all old and moldy. Since we arrived so late at night from the train we didn't have the time/energy to switch hotels if we were going to wake up for sunrise at the Taj and we only stayed one miserable night.
The rooftop offers a nice view, but the rooftop itself has nothing else to offer- the chairs are uncomfortable, bugs are everywhere, its dirty and the food was terrible.
If you can avoid staying here- DO IT. Its worth staying a little further from the Taj to have a more decent standard for hotel.
For the price you would expect something better.
Not worth it. Highly recommend NOT staying here.

The hotel has a great view from the roof top terrace and is only 600 meters away from the East Gate of the Taj Mahal and only 2 minutes from the ticket office and nowadays there is a free shuttle service from the ticket office to the entrance of the Taj Mahal, thus, the location is great! The food was delicious and the staff very friendly. The rooms a simple but clean and the value for money is very good.

My husband and I stayed here for 2 nights in August. We had taken the Non AC Deluxe room. First night we were given Room 302. This room was clean, spacious and very nice. There is a double bed and a coffee table with 2 single sofas present and a TV set. Bathroom is a little small. Bathroom fittings are ancient and can be improved. The second night we were given Room 203. This room was definitely smaller than the first one and the bathroom was smelling. There was also a huge pillar in the room which made the size of the room smaller.

Location wise it is the best. There is a direct view of Taj Mahal from the rooftop/terrace. Taj Mahal West gate entrance is just half a kilometer from the main door of the hotel.

The location of the hotel in Google Maps is totally incorrect. Search for Oberoi Amarvilas and you will find this hotel right next to it.

The distance from Agra bus stand is almost 15km and autos will charge anywhere from Rs.250 onwards.

Hotel staff are helpful and food available is good and reasonably priced.

This is a nice hotel with friendly hospitality (just be prepared to give tips). If you get the right room you have a stunning view of the Taj Mahal and it is not overly expensive. There is also other things like a spa but you do have to pay extra. If your in Agra for one night its a good place to stay because Agra is full of deception. Be careful when out on the streets and buying things because they will scam you. A stunning view from the roof! They also do amazing milkshakes. One tip don't leave the air conditioning on all night as they only supply pathetic thin sheets.

Room Tip: Chose the side of the hotel with the Taj Mahal and you will have a stunning view when you wake up!

The major plus for this hotel is the location which is within a few hundred yards either way of the ticket offices for the Taj Mahal and the less busy entrance gate. The road is cordoned off and so at night it is very quiet with no beeping horns or noise. The communal parts of the hotel are nicely kept and furnished and the view from the roof garden is excellent. The staff were helpful and friendly and the meal we had was good. The rooms are the major drawback as they are basic and in need of a major update. The bottom sheet on my bed was stained and didn't look laundered at all so I requested more and fresh ones were provided. The bathroom wasn't great. We were only here 1 night , but I wouldn't have enjoyed a longer stay.
