Good location - within easy walking distance to Taj Mahal”
Good location as it's within easy walking distance to Taj Mahal.. Very spacious rooms, clean and comfortable. Rooms are provided with complimentary tea and coffee with bottled drinking water. Very friendly and helpful staff. Small restaurant available at the hotel but serves tasty food.

Location ok ”
Close to Taj Mahal but service is poor. Front desk could hardly speak English and rooms were not ready 1 hour after check in time. They even claimed that the credit card machine was out of order to get the payment in cash. I had to complain and guess what the machine was working the day after. They pretend they have a good travel agent but when I asked a simple question on my train ticket he was not able to answer. You can get cheaper deals to Delhi in the street. Rooms are ok but no shower (hot water ok) and were freezing (poor isolation). I guess this is still a good value for money given the location but just for one night. If you are picky on comfort standards go somewhere else.

Disappointing and overrated!”
From the beginning we were very disappointed with the hotel and its staff, which was the worst experience we had so far in India. Pro: location close to taj and a few nice restaurants, clean rooms, free water on the room & tea cooker. Negative: poor service, cheap bed, only cold water shower, very noisy, staff a disaster, breakfast a farce (very poor quality, coffee takes 15 min and might be served after you left already), tv not working, "Premium rooms" without window, hence room also very humid from the bathroom. Beyond overall very unprofessional. There are plenty of cheaper and better hotels around that area.

I would say this was one of the good 2stars I have seen in Agra. Will be on my list for next time if I do not plan to book a 5*or 4*. Helpful staff, good location and good experience.

Above average”
First of all, they cancelled my reservationbecause they easily assumed that my provided US number is an Indian number and they called it locally- to which an Inidan man answered. Lol. Luckily, they still have rooms available. Our bedroom was clean but beds were hard! Bathroom was filthy and rusty. Shower and toilet are not separated and so, when taking a shower, it wets the whole bathroom and toilet paper. Very close to Taj Mahal, about 10 minutes walk. It's annoying that they sold us a package tour which includes the Taj Mahal.. But since it was so close, they made us walk it because cars were not allowed in the road. Ridiculous they had to advertise Taj Mahal in their package, but you go there on your own.

I can not fault the welcoming staff at this hotel from the moment we arrived to leaving as everyone was very friendly and helpful with any questions we had. Room was lovely and the beds were very comfortable, probably the most in any hotel stay.

Comfortable stay and great location”
We stayed one night in a standard room and it was surprisingly spacious, modern clean, comfortable and the cleaning staff came in every day to clean the room and provide fresh towels. The location was great for sightseeing and a little shopping. Staff were always friendly and helpful and nothing was too much trouble for them. I would definitely stay here again.

Small budget simple hotel, clean, not too fancy. But the service throughout the stay was perfect. Everyone knows your name and has a genuine desire to please you with a huge smile. The room was a bit small in size but well stocked with essentials.
