Reviewed 19 July 2016

Stayed here for one night in early July and found the heritage property slightly worn but comfortable. The rooms were large and nicely styled and the staff were pretty helpful. There is only wifi in the lobby which is ok as the area is quite nice to sit and relax. No pool but the rooms are air conditioned so that is something. Definitely NO hot water and when we called maintenance they came up and turned the tap on and said 'you have water' clearly having water was a bonus and to expect HOT water, not going to happen. Seems to be pretty standard in India so expect the unexpected. We ate in the restaurant and the food and service was fantastic. Best Dahl I had in India and it was overall a great experience and the breakfast was also one of the better ones. You could definitely find worse places to stay if your budget is mid range.

Room Tip: Don't expect hot water in your room.

Pros: 1. Good Location. Very near to Taj Mahal (2 Kms.) & Agra Fort (2 Kms.) 2. Cleanliness Cons: 1. Very Bad Service. Always take 15-20 mins to even take water bottle for room.. Toiletries provided after demand.. 2. Bath Tub Available but no flushing cap in bath tub, so water cant get stored. Again took 20 minutes to bring stopper for bath tub.. 3. No room provided for drivers. Even blanket not provided to driver. 4. Room provided/ checked-in at 03:00 PM and they give excuse that earlier guest left the rooms later..

We stayed for one night and it was good. The service from staff was excellent and very friendly. Rooms were large and very comfortable. The location is good and also there is a restaurant next door. Wifi didn't work in our room however but did work in the lobby.

We stayed in this hotel just for one night. Location is very good - close to Taj Mahal. Hotel is clean, bathrooms are outdated. It is very difficult to get something to drink - you should find a waiter in a restaurant. Breakfast is "interesting" - strange combinations...
