Tourists Rest House
Ranked #23 of 142 Hotels in Agra
Reviewed 4 October 2013

We stayed two nights in the tourists rest house and our stay was very good. The welcome is very friendly in addition when we arrive at 4 am. Rooms are clean and food tasty. Try the cheese naan and the chai. Good to know, we booked all our train tickets thanks to Anil, the owner's son, without commission.

Room Tip: Choose the room 106 face to the garden

Reviewed 29 September 2013

I will review this place from the perspective of someone looking for a decent, clean place to stay, but which isn't the focus of their trip to Agra. It is unreasonable to expect the amenities of a luxury hotel, so while one doesn't enjoy overly decorated rooms, complimentary toiletries, attentive hospitality, etc., one does enjoy decent comfort and peace of mind.

The Room
The room that I received was clean, spacious, and came with an ok bathroom. The bed was large (for one person). Towels were provided. I went for a non-AC, which I recommend because it is sufficient and one doesn't have to worry about the AC not working. Would also like to mention that there may be power-cuts, which happens all over Agra, but this place has a backup generator which is great.

The Hotel
Quite stylishly designed for a budget hotel, with a nice green central garden-cum-resto, decorated with colourful lights. Simple place, but nevertheless quite aesthetic.

The restaurant
Can't comment much as I generally prefer to explore eateries in the city, but from what I saw the menu was decent. Service is leisurely, but the resto makes good for relaxing. I should also mention that the wifi is confined to the restaurant/lobby.

Location
Not exactly in the Taj area, but in its own bustling neighbourhood of shops and markets. Rickshaws are available everywhere for travelling, but they have a tendency to pounce on you right outside the hotel, so avoid these ones.the neighbourhood is charming to explore if you are looking to get a true feel of busy Agra.

Costs
The best part about this place is that it is great value for money, and there are no hidden costs.

In comparison
What makes this place a good choice is that it is so much better than all the other budget hotels that I visited, most of which were dark, dingy, dilapidated and desolated. Other places also charge higher rates for inferior quality.

In summary
If you are looking for a budget place which is not too fancy, this is my recommendation. Not much to complain about. Good price, no hassles, no frills.

Room , bed , pillow and blanket ..all are clean and feel good to use! Food are nice and delicious ! Especially love order their coffee to drink in every breakfast. Price of the room is reasonable where I and my friend have booked a room with fan. But the only problem is the ceiling of the room will peel off but still good in over all the room was good !!Staffs are good and helpful in giving any opinion regarding travel in Agra!

The room was big, bright and clean. We were there in off season so had a nice room with AC for a reasonable price. It was a little way from town but no hassle to take a tuk tuk. The pick up service is helpful but they will offer to be your tour guide in Agra so be prepared for that.

I have booked this hotel before and i guess i have made a right decision, as it was fully booked when we arrived. This place is very nice especially the garden area.The rooms are nice, spacious and LCD cable t.v. The food is good we ate couple of time but not with a huge variety.
They also help in arranging tickets to other destinations without commission and also tours to rajasthan(which we booked and was pretty happy).
The staff was great also welcomed and ask if you need something to drink/eat..
The location is also nice as the taj mahal is just 2.5 km away , fort is same, the popular restaurants are nearby(dasaprakash, we've been there).poste also very near.
They also helped in arranging local sightseeing tour which was nice because they aware us before, that the rickshaw driver stops to their uncle shop so don't buy anything from there, i was impressed with their words that they care for their guests.
We have no negatives in the hotel..
We definitely recommend this place to our family and friends..
.

Room Tip: choose any rooms all are good, but have a look to their new rooms which really impress you ..

We stayed at Tourist Rest House for two nights in September 2013. Our room was clean, quiet and comfortable (although the beds are on the short side), with a good shower and a water cooler (not air-con). Wifi is only available in the lobby/restaurant area and we got our laundry done. The food is excellent. The location is probably not great unless you have your own transport (which we did) but this is a good budget option. I liked that they asked for feedback and genuinely seemed to want to know what we thought. At the end they gave us a bill for our room, food and laundry with everything written down and no hidden extras.
