  • Disliked: Cleanliness, amenities, property conditions & facilities

The property is very near to Taj Mahal, 8-10 min walk only. Though the room was big, the electrical equipments and sockets were faulty or not functional. The bathroom was not clean and the faucets were old and dirty. For the price Expedia charged, the overall experience was very poor. Our driver told us that there are better hotels nearby Taj about half the price we paid. We feel like we got ripped off.

I booked a deluxe double room with view for 3 nights six months in advance. I arrived at 10pm after a 6 hour train trip. I was given a room with double bed and an absolutely disgusting bathroom and no view. The bathroom sink couldn't be turned off and water just flowed all night. Elsewhere water dripped all night. Bathroom floor wet all night. It was a ground floor room and down hall people talking loudly and banging all night in foyer area. Next morning I demanded a new room and staff happily provided room on 1st floor with window onto side street. This room was quite suitable for the price except mattress was so hard sleep was very difficult. If given this room first night I would have made no complaint and happy with this hotel. No explanation or apology given by hotel. Location was good, a/c good, WiFi good, safe area, walking distance to Taj Mahal. Restaurant was okay but very slow service even when no other customers. On 1st floor room shower wets whole bathroom floor and it stays wet. Sheets were yellow and stained but probably cleaned and just very old. Not sure of better offerings in accommodation in Agra. But if choose this hotel avoid ground floor room.

I did not enjoy the attitude or level of service from the hotel staff who were not very welcoming.

  • Disliked: Staff & service

It was ok. Great for the Taj Mahal but not really anything else. Customer service left a lot to be desired and booking a trip with them is not recommended
