I spent a couple of days in Saniya Palace. The location is amazing, very close to Taj Majal. The structure is very clean and warm. The lovely rooftop in front to Taj Mahal is ideal to relax during the sunset. The staff is friendly and at your disposal for any request. I'll come back there for sure:)!!

We stayed there for two nights and were very happy. The rooms are good, but the bathroom is very small. The price is very low and there is an amazing view on the Taj mahal from the rooftop restaurant. The manager is also very nice

Stayed here for a night, it was a great choice. The roof top is very very pleasant (view++), the rooms are simple but clean + bed comfortable and the common area feel fresh with taj mahal-like thin flower decoration. The staff is eager to help and very nice. Very good deal for that price range, thank you!

The best part of this hotel is chilling on the rooftop watching the community around you. Kite flying, pigeon training, cricket on the streets, it was pretty wonderful. Second best part is the proximity to the Taj Mahal- a very short walk. The rooms themselves are very budget- plumbing didn't work. The owners are lovely. If you don't expect anything...

The fact of being so close to Taj Mahal gets its value. Although the building is old and little humid, the staff is unvaluable!!!!! as well as the view to Taj from the terrace-restaurant. The best of the Saniya is Ravi, the reception man, the most honest, simple and nice-talking friend: He will tell you everything from politics to religion....

If you want a superb view of the Taj Mahal from the rooftop of your hotel, this place has just that. We arrived on the overnight train from Chandigargh, and to see the Taj in the misty early morning night was something special. The rooftop also has a restaurant where we ate one evening, the meal was fine, nothing spectacular,...

It would be difficult to find cheap price but this hotel a good deal. There was problem that electric and water turn off and on back & forth. It takes 5 minutes to walk Taj Mahal and 7 minutes autorickshaw to Train station Agra Fort that cost 50 Rupees no more than that. There is rooftop restaurant and great view...

We do not recommend a stay in this hotel at all!!! Tiny rooms, bad smell, poor hygienic setting. The window was broken and could not be closed so there were also mosquitos in the room. The room was very humid and had a bad smell. The bathroom was very tiny and also not very clean.

Thank Arno H
