We arrived at Agra on the first day of my first visit to India, with the sole purpose of visiting the Taj Mahal. The reviews of this hotel promise views of the Taj and the reality doesn't disappoint, with it's stunning elevation looms large and white and easily viewed from the hotel. Staying at this hotel is like staying in...

We had been booked for one night only and upon leaving definitely felt it was way too short, such is the amazing quality of this hotel. Attention is everywhere and you cannot fault the performance at any level, be it breakfast, dinner, amenities, housekeeping and the grandiose sight of the Taj Mahal from your room. The Taj Mahal is a...

The hotel is wonderful. The room was good, but not fabulous. However, the view of the Taj from your room makes it all worthwhile. The food in the restaurant was very good. My only complaint is that the power kept going off, although only for short times. I think it is the best place to stay to visit the Taj....

This is the perfect place to enjoy a stop off in Agra. The hotel is a 10 minutes drive away from the Taj. Beautiful rooms with balcony views over the Taj. Lovely grounds with beautiful outdoor pool. Great restaurant.

This was the first of 3 Oberoi hotels we visited on our trip to India. We were looking forward to the wonderful views of the Taj Mahal but unfortunately it was very foggy and it was impossible to see it from the hotel. On a clear day, it must be stunning. As we were only in Agra for one night,...

We stayed here as you see the Taj Mahal from every room, unfortunately for us it was foggy, of course this is not the fault of the hotel. On the whole out of all the places we stayed this was the most disappointing, the worst food and breakfast unfortunately. The rooms however are very beautiful and comfortable.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Taj Mahal is extraordinary as much for what it is as how it has escaped the banality of cliché. For 350 years, this monument evokes a sense of wonder. Only by being there can you witness its true majesty, its symmetry, its setting and the delicacy of its carved marble inlaid with precious stones. Now just suppose you were to overlook it from your hotel room? The Oberoi Amarvilas is 600 metres from this tribute to love. The lavish interiors and elaborate gardens add to the serenity of the scene. The guestrooms are palatial: all have magical views and are luxuriously furnished with traditional fabrics, white marble, hand-crafted ornaments and every modern amenity. There is a luxury spa offering a range of therapies, a swimming pool where snacks and drinks are served; an ornamented ballroom and fine restaurants to suit the international palate. But the lobby lounge is a feast for the eye designed, as it was, around that glorious view of the Taj Mahal. ... more   less
