It is close to the Taj Mahal. Room was atrociously unclean, air conditioner did not work, electricity was intermittent, wifi was non-existent. Stains on the bed, bathroom un-usable - Would not reccommend, even at this price.

I visited Hotel Host for dinner and ordered Gujarati thali. The hotel restaurant does not know about Gujarati food and serve normal food as Gujarati thali which is not worth further mention. The furniture is worn-out and toilets dirty. Overall, avoid.

We ate at the restaurant and really enjoyed the food. Good portion sizes and very tasty food. We ate dinner and breakfast and both were very good. The cook was very friendly and service was also very good.

Don't stay at this place! First of all they wanted money up front and promised much more than they could keep. We was promised hot shower (NOT bucket) and wifi 24 hour. Nothing worked. When we said this they promised it be fixed next morning, but of course it wasn't. We left after one night but not before we had...

Don't go there. The place is so crappy that we could feel a strong electricity current when touching the tap for the shower! The 'host' did not respond to our complaint. We have travelled India for 3 months and have seen our share of crappy places but this was definitely the worst. After checking out we stayed for half the...

All the good things are in the title. The location, the view from the rooftop are amazing; and the owner is friendly and help you in everything that you need. In the other hand, the rooms are not clean and the outside bathroom is too small and dirty.

Don't go expecting much in terms of service and other stuff you expect from a hotel. This place has an amazing view of the Taj and is definitely among the closest to the entrance, what more can you ask for? I must say that we actually got good service and the rates were very reasonable. It was all a bit...
