Perfect location. Great value although the restaurant is privy.


This is in a great location only a few minutes walk from the Taj Mahal. There is a rooftop restaurant and the food was good. The staff were great, really friendly. This is a good place to stay if you are going to the Taj Mahal.


Internet is only available in the hall. They say they accept credit cards but when trying to pay they put a million of excuses. We finally told them that was the only way cause we had no cash, yhen the machine worked. They give you no sheets for bed. The hot water was not available, we had to ask and wait 30 mins for the heater. Almost all in the staff are nice.


If nothing else, you should stay at the Taj Palace Hotel because of it's amazing views of the Taj Mahal. Where else can you have breakfast overlooking the Taj Mahal???? The Taj Palace sits next to a five star resort (I think the most expensive hotel in Agra) and is walking distance to the gates of the Taj Mahal. The location is especially helpful if you decide to see the sunrise at the Taj Mahal. The food is good. The rooms are OK.


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


Really close to the Taj witch is the most important thing in Agra. The hotel is very old and not more then average.


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
