I travel for the experience of another way of life, so I don't want to stay in US hotels or their like. The Sheela has all the advantages of being Indian but I was fine eating their meats, cream...all the things I was afraid to eat outside since plates and leaves are rinsed in river water; meat hangs black with...

Location: Hotel Sheela is well-known to the locals, so it was easy to travel there from Agra Cant train station (tuktuk: Rs. 150). This hotel, however, is located in a non-vehicle zone, so the last few hundred metres have to be covered on foot. Be wary of the aggressive touts along the way! Hotel Sheela is located near the East...

This hotel was on a very good location next to the Taj Mahal. However couldn't see the taj as it is a one story hotel. Walking to the hotel gave us a lot of hassle from store holders wanting to sell their products, however just said no thank you and walked away in confidence. Walking distance to restaurants and shops....

I gave this hotel 5 stars because I'm going to rate it for what it is; a budget hotel with an awesome location. I believe in the philosophy that you get what you pay for. Well at roughly $15/night, I feel the Hotel Sheela is an incredible bargain. I booked this as we rolled into Agra because I began to...

We booked this hotel in advance and to be honest weren't feeling great about staying there - the description in the latest edition of the Lonely Planet guidebook makes it sound pretty grim. However, our room was basic but absolutely fine, for hot water you had to ask staff to fill up a bucket but we didn't find this to...

Popped in here for tea and snacks after our Taj Mahal visit - my second visit - and enjoyed a pleasant hour in the garden catching up on the blog (free wifi). Great little place - real oasis of calm. The rooms look very basic but ok and range between 700 and 1200 rupees per night.

Hotel Sheela exceeded my expectations. My friend and I arrived super early, around 5:45 am, and then manager let us have a room for half of the price so we could sleep for a few hours before starting our day. Everyone was helpful when it came to getting directions. There was no wifi in the room but there was wifi...

This place was terrific! Budget priced, great friendly staff and great food as well. I've read many posts prior to booking. The reason you may have to walk 400m to the entrance is that the area on most days is restricted to electric vehicles only. It's an easy walk and you can't miss the place. 200m from the eastern gate...
