    The perfect place for a night’s stay to visit the Taj Mahal, with the best view! The room was clean and tidy, and great value for money. The staff were really accommodating with our last minute plans and held our bags for us for the morning before our train. I’d definitely recommend to anyone needing somewhere to stay in Agra. Thank you!

    Spent approximately 4 days in the hostel and the staff was friendly and accommodating. The facilities are decently clean and after our ceiling fan stopped working they were easily willing to change our room into one that had a working fan. It has a fantastic view of the Taj Mahal in the rooftop restaurant too! I only wish we had AC. Even with the ceiling fan, India is sooo hot and humid that circulating air doesn’t cool you down. Sometimes you really need AC to sleep comfortably.

    Fantastic stay at Saniya Palace. Staff couldn’t be more helpful and welcoming. Spectacular rooftop bar with amazing views of the Taj Mahal. Dev was particularly helpful and friendly and fulfilled all of our special requests with very good communication. Only 5 mi utes walk to the East gate of Taj Mahal. It couldn’t be easier staying at Saniya Palace. Enjoy

    Excellent location literally one turn from the Taj entrance. Rooftop restaurant also offers great Taj views. Arranged for train station pickup, and our driver Ashabbu was so excellent we actually had him drive us around the the next day! Rooms NOT air conditioned (rough considering 100+ degree F days). Also, one of the desk managers was super helpful, but a different one tried to rip us off with a taxi to the airport (he wanted to charge more than double of what we actually found).

    This hostel is right by the Taj Mahal which is very convenient. The roof top has an amazing view of the Taj and serves decent food and beer. Our room was so small and everything seemed to be falling apart. The bed sheet were not clean and our blanket was damp and dirty. The towels were also damp. We arrived at 6am and they let us check into our room early which was great. This hostel was good for a one night stay but don’t expect more than what you pay for!

    The location of this hotel is great and the restaurant has a fantastic view of the Taj Mahal. The rooms are very dark and dingy and in need of a good refresh. It wasnt unclean so much as just old with wear and tear. My partner was ill during our stay so we had to extend our time there. They were accomdating and helped me to get some medicines. A great option for a quick stopover in Agra and views of the Taj but dont expect any frills

    Superb location near Taj Mahal East gate. Cold and damp rooms. Staff were not very warm but got the job done. Poor wifi.

    I stayed here for the location, but it left some things to be desired like the other reviews said. It says it has air con: that is not true. It says they accept credit cards: that is not true. It was a great location and the restaurant on top is great! Skip staying here, come have dinner to see the Taj Mahal and stay somewhere more pleasant.
