Good place to see the panorama view of Taj Mahal and close to east gate.


Well the hotel was ideal in terms of location and proximity to the Taj Mahal. Not the best room, but for one night it's doable. So if you want to be within walking distance from theTaj for a budget, this is a good option.

Good value for money, perfect location to see the Taj, roof top staff very friendly!


Decent hotel in good location for visiting the Taj Mahal, about 10 minute walk to the East Gate. Staff were very pleasant and we appreciated that they served us food at 11:30 pm after our train was delayed by 1.5 hours. Room was fine, food was decent and rooftop had good views.


Shower didn't work, but hot water to the tap made buck effective! Great view of the Taj from the our room and Fantastic view from the deck! Quieter part of town, but plenty of options nearby to explore. Get your tuk tuk driver to stop at the East gate ticket counter before you check in to save back tracking


this was an excellent choice of hotel for our two day stay in Agra. lovely view of the Taj Mahal from our room, manager very helpful. food poor but over all a great place to stay

10 min walk from the Taj and as that's the only thing you'll be in Agra for there's not many other criteria! Can't top the location and the hotel itself was clean, comfortable and had decent facilities. Restaurant was ok but nothing special, useful if you are after an easy option. No hassles and does what it needs to do. Would stay again.


Bathroom stank of sewage. But overall not that bad for the price and location.


Great location only ten minute walk to the Taj. Good basic but clean room although air conditioning unit too noisy to leave on overnight. The food was terrible and the rooftop "restaurant" lacks any atmosphere despite the two young lads who did their best at carrying every order up 4 flights of stairs. The roof top music playing 15 hours a day was irritating due to the same Indian instrumental track being on constant repeat. This could be heard from my room.
