Rooms were expensive and terribly dirty. Ac not working. Reception uselessly luxurious in comparision with the rooms


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.


This place was inexpensive, nice, clean, and within close walking distance of the Taj Mahal. Definitely would stay here again.
