I got to Agra in the Punjab Mail train from Mumbai... quite a long ride, and to top it, we stepped in one of the most unpleasant-to-the-eyes cities I've ever seen... Hard to believe the Taj is actually there!... Anyway, the tuk-tuk driver took us near the Hotel, and told us that you couldn't reach it by car or tuk-tuk...

do not touch this as they are likely to mess up your booking. Room OK but don't bother paying more for a shower as it will not work

Stayed in Agra at Hotel Sheela for Holi. The courtyard and restaurant were a fantastic oasis from the chaos of Agra. With that said, the hotel staff was apathetic towards its guests. The rooms were poor at best. Our sheets and pillows were dirty, the walls had the plaster ripped off, and the bathroom was questionable. However, for 10USD a...

Hotel is located in a quiet part of Agra, very close to the East Gate. The garden is a very nice place to have your breakfast or dinner. Room was very basic and during our stay we had only cold water.

Being in the auto-free zone is a plus b/c you don't have the congestion outside the hotel. Sheela is a stone's throw from the east gate of the Taj Mahal and sports a beautiful garden courtyard and tasty restaurant. This is a great place to relax and meet fellow travelers. The room was small, simple, but clean. Bring your mosquito...

We stayed at the Sheela and were worried because we had read mixed reviews. Overall we found the hotel to be very clean, the garden is a wonderful oasis and the rooms were fine. We had hot water showers both morning and night. The location is right beside the east gate and walking distance. The resertaunt is okay, the food...

Right next to east gate of Taj Mahal, great location considering the attraction of Agra as city itself. Very nice terrace to have something to eat / drink and talk. Good food for dinner and breakfast. Rooms were cold, but had good sleep. A bit tiny rooms, bathroom wasn´t the cleanest. Good: convenient and price.

We really enjoyed our stay at the Sheela. The staff were helpful and the rooms are a good size and clean. It's not quite in the centre of the action, but it benefits from a lovely garden setting that makes up for this. The on-site restaurant does good food, although it is a bit more expensive than the local restuarants,...

This place is great value. It is literally a 30 second walk to the Taj Mahal East Gate and everything is on its doorstep. Saying this, it has managed to achieve a quiet atmosphere with gardens all around. It also has a great, cheap restaurant which costs the same to eat at as a restaurant outside. The rooms are clean...

It was wonderful to walk intot he peaceful garden here, 100metres from the Taj Mahal and an oasis from the dusty noisy Taj Ganj area. It is just what you need in Agra, just inside the vehicle exclusion zone so quiet! The owner is great, and keeps it simple. The rooms are quite basic, but so is the prcie so...
