“Such a bad experience never again”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 January 2008

I had chosen this hotel basing myself on positive reviews found on this site and in the routard guide. Big mistake : this hotel was so depressing that I got away from it with my girlfriend after a couple of hours.
The reception guys are friendly, but as soon as you cross the door everything gets gloomy : ugly decoration, no furniture in the rooms, rusty and dirty bathroom, hair on the bedsheet...
When she saw that, my girlfriend told me : you have to get me out of this horrible place, which I did (only the trident hilton had availabile rooms, they were much more expensive, but really worth the price : I had to make up for my mistake, and make my girlfriend happy after this bad experience !!!).
Since I left before the night, I did not pay for the room. The reception guy asked what the problem was, since his rooms were "clean" according to him ; well, maybe they were clean, but they really didn't look like it !
After this, and after having seen the kitchen, we logically decided not to try the restaurant.
It is true that the hotel is very close to the taj westgate, which is good, and that it was OK from the hotel owner not to have me pay my room. But all of this is not sufficient : you should be able to find much better hotels in agra in this range of prices, or more expensive if you can afford (the Hilton is reall worth it).

Very close to Taj West gate, so convenient.
But the rooms look terrible, are poorly decorated, if you can call it that way, not well lit, unconfortable (poor bed, untrustworthy bedsheets made us sleep in our sleeping bags instead), and we had to fight mosquitoes and dispose of a small cockroach. Bathrooms look dirty with rusted pipes etc..

That was the only room left in Agra, that was only 800 rupees for the night, so only as a last option...

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 September 2007

We stayed in a very large room with 2 beds and AC. Paid 1200 Rupees per night. We stayed for 4 nights.
Most of the Double Rooms have Marble beds, very appropriate in Agra, place of Marble workmanship.

Rooms were very clean, Towels and Bed Linen changed daily.
Only problem was there are no wardrobes.

Hot Water on demand. You have to ask at the front desk and they switch the HW on. The Bathroom was good size with Bath Tub and Western Toilet.

The Hotel is very close to Taj West Gate and within 10 minutes slow walking distance to the Taj Gate entrance.

There is a Terrace Restaurant and GF Restaurant which is AC. We had meals in the restaurant and also by Room service. Good Meals.

  • Liked — Good size clean rooms
  • Disliked — No wardrobe space
  • Stayed August 2007, travelled with family
