We were aware from the tiny tiny price we paid that the accommodation here would be basic but were hoping for a 'cheap and cheerful' approach. Sadly, although the competition in Agra is stiff, there was no attempt made here to step up the game. With a basic and poorly executed menu, a game of cat and mouse with the staff every time we were after a drink and, with a roof top 'restaurant' with all the charm of a derelict dried up swimming pool (go figure) we ended up enjoying the very pleasant, cheap yet cheerful competition. Which I'd like to recommend you seek out over this place.
The Taj View here is indeed the only place you'll see it uninterrupted but you can see it and enjoy it perfectly well absolutely everywhere! I'd rather see it from somewhere where the staff look pleased to see me.
So the reason I've scored higher than my description suggests? - the price. Cheap as chips this place does its job just don't expect anything more - you'll be lucky even to get loo roll here :)
