The staff were helpful although the housekeeping and maintenance staff were particularly keen on being tipped. The pool was closed for maintenance but there was an outside rooftop bar and restaurant which was very pleasant. Generally clean, a little tired but fine for a night or 2.

Nothing wrong with this hotel. Staff were friendly. Check in was early. Breakfast I rushed but seemed ok. I left a bag behind & they rushed to give it to me. I would stay again. I recall it was slightly noisy outside in the streets but that never bothers me!

Awesome place. Upgraded my room for free. Sent a cake when they learnt that it was our wedding anniversary. The rooms were clean. The restaurant was nice. The service was awesome. The food, not so good. Everything else, amazing. And you can actually walk to the Taj from here.

We stayedher for one night on the Delhi, Agra, Jaipur route. We checked in midday. The hotel is just off the main road. We had a room at the back,so it was quiet (as requested) and overlooked the school. There must have been refurbishments going on here as all the "old stuff" was thrown out the back. We just kept...

We were dubious about staying here after reading some of the reviews but we were pleasantly surprised. Amidst the chaos of Agra, it's a haven. Very quiet, helpful staff, cool, clean and lovely food. Be VERY careful using the spa though. Went to get nails done and they ended up staining my acrylic nails tomato red! Obviously something that they... More

I lived there with my family for two days. The service they provided is good. The room is beautiful and I enjoyed the meal there. Also, there are handcraft shops in the first floor. The staff (also an artist) there called Salim is really nice and talented. I had a very great and memorable experience in the hotel.
