The hotel was extremely dirty and basically, we left the room cleaner than it was upon our arrival. There was probably a renovation going on (tones of dust and noise) but nobody mentioned that to us. Two little boys were told to carry our backpacks up.One of them was smaller than the backpack. Fabric covered bedhead looked like eaten by...

The rooms are clean and a nice size with a TV, i think a smidge pricey for a room without a bathroom but it was just across the hall and had hot water. There is a great view of the Taj from the roof and walking distance to the gate, they also sell the tickets so you don't have to...

I had lovely comfy bed and hot showers.. my friend wasn't so lucky so think it depends which room you are in. Great view of Taj Mahal from roof and ideal location.

Hotel Host is a cheap basic hotel very good location to the west gate of the Taj Mahal although I would suggest you make the short walk to the south gate for the most magnificent first view of the Taj. The room was clean & had hot water. What i really appreciated was the thick blanket & the electric heater...

The owner is very nice, but the place feels very cheap. The rooms are so-so but the location is very, very good. Everything is with-in a 10 min walk.

Hotel host is located right outside Taj Mahal west gate, just 200m away. Rooms are basic, but clean and quiet. Beds were rock-hard, but nevertheless the location and price was more important for us. Very good option for staying few nights when visiting the Taj. There is also nice food and room service for only 5% extra!´

Room we stayed in was very basic, also not the cleanest, but this is India! We had hot water in the shower, which was good. Hotel staff were nice and food in their restaurant was good, they also deliver it to your rooms for 5% extra charge. They also have a rooftop place with nice view of the Taj, but...

Apart from the unparalleled views of the Taj from the roof, which really are spectacular, this is without question the worst place ive ever stayed. The padlock on the door looked as though you could virtually pull it off, the bed was so hard and uncomfortable we may as well have been sleeping on the floor, literally rock hard and...
