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.

Great location with nice views of the taj from the roof. Room was good with a fan and ac, restaurant was decent. They organised us a taxi to Ranthambore for 50,000 rubees after we bartered them down from 65,000 rubees which seemed expensive to us but we didn't really have any other options as all the trains and buses were booked.

Pretty Average hotel. The one thing that made me mad was the "travel desk" guy. We asked about train tickets to Khajuraho and he quoted us a 1900 rupees each. We told him we wanted to think about it and let him know because we knew we could get so much cheaper and he was quite rude. He said now or no so we just said no and went and got our train tickets from the station for 700 rupees total. The young servers in the restaurant are awesome! Very nice young men!

Decent, clean place to stay. I had a fan room which was fine. Excellent price given the location at Taj East Gate. Appreciated PC and printer. No WiFi and lockers in room. Restaurant food no good. Nice rooftop bar though. Good choice for a 1-2 day visit to Taj etc.

I can understand the comment about the uselessly luxurious reception hall compared to the average looking rooms. The AC unfortunately did not work but in the 35° moist heat, we were just glad to have a fan and shower, and hang around the AC reception hall and ground floor restaurant. The staff was nice and let us change our booking when our flights were cancelled and arrived a day late! We deeply appreciated that!

Simple but nice located, walk distance for the tajmahal and great terrace. The stuff was helpful. I was travelling by myself. The food in the restaurant not so good.

Very good location. Around 400m to the Taj Mahal. Roof top view of the Taj Mahal which was nice at breakfast. Food was lovely and internet use is free but incredibly slow. Overall a good cheap place to stay. Ac is seperate though at an ectra 500 rupees a night and we were under the impression it was included from the booking form.

how has this hotel got such a high rating! We didn't get the room we had booked and would have to pay extra for the view of the Taj. The bed sheets were dirty and stained with blood, the pillow was lumpy, the shower was weak. The staff on the desk were rude and unhelpful, the staff in the restaurant chased us up the stairs for a tip and the food was overpriced. The laundry services was very poor and they wouldn't let us pay by card. We were excited for our stay but were very disappointed!

Taj Plaza had the best location ever for the ones who wish to visit Taj Mahal easily. Stuff is super helpful, they have great foods in hotel's restaurant. Only thing is place is a bit old and can be taken care of better.

It was all pretty good. Only way to improve would be to have a more available supply of hot water. Can't say anything about the wifi because I didn't use it. Staff was very accommodating.
