This hotel has perfect location, 1min walk to Taj Mahal. The staff is really helpful and you feel very welcome there. Unfortunetly the wifi didn't work, very inconvenient when you have to book your next hostel. The sheets were not very clean and there were a thousand mosquitos in the room, so bringing a mosquito net is .a good idea. Overall the hotel is ok, but a little too expensive
When we arrived, they were not aware of our booking and tried to book us into a dirty room (looked like someone had just checked out). Location was good- right next to the Taj Mahal- although this was the only redeeeming feature of this hostel.
Convenient walk to the Taj Mahal and the staff was super. The sheets weren't the cleanest, but nonetheless it was a good place for a much-needed night's rest.
Nikhil - who runs Shyam Palace, is a fantastic help. He gave me excellent suggestions on spots to view the Taj Mahal & he even helped me with my accomodation for the next destination. Friends of mine who were not even staying at the hotel came to him for information as he was far more helpful than their own hotel. The hotel itself is basic but clean and has all you need for a trip to Agra. It is about a 2 min walk to west gate which is fantastic if you want to go see the Taj at sunrise
