We were committed to this hotel as part of our Intrepid / Peregrine tour of Rajasthan, so I have no idea how much it costs or the value. The property is about 10 minutes from Taj Mahal and is behind a secured gate. Upon entry, the place is fairly impressive with a wide open lobby, modern restaurant, and a gigantic...

That said, the staff were...

This hotel is located right in Agra city center, half a kilometer from Taj Mahal. It is a very nice hotel and I was very happy with everything: room, breakfast, location and staff. Shops and restaurants are nearby and my stay was very enjoyable.

It has a nice-looking lobby, but the rest of the hotel is a bit shabby. As an example, the drain pipe on the sink in our room had literally rusted all the way through, to the point where water was dribbling out through the crack and when I touched it, the rest of the pipe simply crumbled away. They fixed...
