“Ok for a budget stay but don't expect much”
Reviewed 15 February 2014

This place is fine if you are staying for just one night and are looking to spend little. It's decently clean, but don't expect a hot shower unless you get a room for Rs. 900/night. The restaurant food is pretty bad and there is no indoor seating. It was quite chilly when we were there last week and it was somewhat painful to have to dine outside. They strangely don't do room service either. The garden is cute and if it were a bit warmer I can see how it'd be charming to eat outdoors.

Room Tip: I'd advice getting a room for Rs. 900/night so you can have your own hot water heater and an ass...

We were looking for budget places in peak winters. Had read about this place on TA. We were 3 travelers and took the cheapest rooms right in front of the dining area ground floor. I loved the spirit of the place, very backpacker types & good travelers. The continental food was good, the Indian food is not how Indians have it (was a little weird). We got Hot water and neat beds. We had to check out in the morning but were going to stroll around the city till the evening. These ppl let us keep our luggage in the luggage room for the day. Transport to Taj & all the other spots is easily available right outside the guest house. Also they call t for you if you ask them. The manager is good & friendly & so is the staff.
As soon as you go out of the resort the place is not so neat. Go to this place if you need a comfortable (not too pricy) place to spend the night.

I must say, the photo firstly looks nothing like the room we stayed in. It happens a lot on trip advisor. You are always best to ask to be shown the room before completing payment, try taps, toilet, fan, hotwater, etc. There is a nice dining/entertainment area, (handy to keep your luggage here when checking out). Tuktuks outside reception- ask for Elam or Khan. This is a budget stay, it is what it is. The kashmiri biryani is to die for, you must try.

Great hotel for its price. The staff were very helpful and the court yard was great to relax in. This is a decent budget hotel. There was a very friendly man in the front office who was always there and ready to greet the guests and give them travel tips.

This place was recommended to me by a friend who stayed here previously..I would say its a good value for money.The rooms are nice and well arranged. The food was served in the garden area which was very green .The food also tasted good.
Tourist rest house provides good , basic budget accommodation with great staff and great garden...

We came to Agra after a few days of rain. Unfortunately this meant that everything in the room was wet: towels, sheets, blankets. We asked members of the hotel to change the towels but they came back with equally as wet towels. The bed itself was quite bad and only very limited hot water available. Wouldn't come back here to sleep. The restaurant was very nice though, cheap prices and a nice courtyard.
