Hotel Sidhartha
Ranked #33 of 143 Hotels in Agra
Reviewed 26 March 2012

As in a lot of hotels in India "ask and thou shalt receive" is essential to keep in mind. It was very cold in February. We had to ask for a top sheet (when will they ever learn that westerners are appalled at the lack of a top sheet?) - they saw me coming..........with the sheet came toilet paper and soap an extra pillow and a lovely warm duvet. We slept well despite the usual hard bed.....
Kept the bathroom door closed to give the next room privacy in their bathroom!
The overall cleanliness was badly marred by the complete neglect of the mirrors (not on the cleaners' list?)

The garden cafe (not roof as suggested- the monkeys own that as my husband found out when he took his computer up there to do some work) has the same sort of problem, you have to ask for the table to be cleaned - point out the need for water! and try not to handle the chairs........ the staff are very well meaning so be nice but do ask.............

Quiet

It was cheap and very well placed so the value was good. We recommend it .

Room Tip: Not all rooms have hot water (but it is provided by the bucketful in other rooms) Remember to ask...

Very good hotel, clean and more spacious than I was expecting. Staff very friendly and helpful, food good, location excellent. For the price this hotel is an absolute bargain.

I spent 2 nights at this hotel in Feb 2012. The hotel is in a good location in the Taj Ganj area of Agra. The area doesn't allow motor vehicles, so is relatively quiet. Nice courtyard area for breakfast and snacks. The rooms are basic, bathroom had a vent through to next doors bathroom, so it sometimes sounded as though someone was in the room with you! intermitent hot water for showers. Good value.

The room was pretty much bare bones, but it did have soap and towels and hot water. It was extremely cold when we were there in January, so we asked for extra blankets, which they brought for us. There was no heat. The location was great, on a fairly quiet street in this crowded part of town that led directly to the Taj Mahal. The meals in the courtyard restaurant were adequate. The man at the desk was very helpful and arranged a car and driver for us when we departed for Keoladeo. I suspect we could have done better taking up the offer of one of our rickshaw drivers, because the driver, who was O.K. also required that we pay the tolls and insisted we go with guides he knew at Fatehpur Sikri. When we got up early to go to the Taj we had to knock at the lobby door to get someone to get up to let us out. No internet or wifi connection, and the internet cafes nearby didn't inspire confidence, so we did without internet in Agra.

Room Tip: No view from our window into the courtyard on ground floor as a/c filled the window.
