If a front desk employee is trying to smooth-talk me straight to his neighboring ticket office I am kinda done. I had no problem with my train but this guy was saying I did have a problem and should go immediately to the tickets office next door. No hot water and didn't feel very welcome. But the location is fantastic...

Super close to taj entrance that opens early, so that was great. Only downside was room was just so so and water pressure not strong enough for a...

The grumpy receptionist wasn't friendly. The room we got looks nothing like in the pictures. The airconditioning was so disgusting we didn't turn it on. The sink was leaking and there were no windows in the room. The only good thing is that it's only 5 minutes walking from the Taj Mahal. We wanted to see the Taj at sunrise,...

We only had one night at the Kamal but it's location to the Taj is awesome. The room and bathroom was clean and the staff were extremely friendly and helpful. I have been to Agra a number of times and will continue to stay at the Kamal.

The room was spacious, bathroom with western style toilets and toiletpaper (not a given thing in India) and clean. I spent...

The pics in the web are far from reality. Besides, we were a group of 8 people and we pay differently for the same type of room: my partner and I paid 100 rupees more because we did not pay at the same time than our friends. Expensive for its kind.
