It was ma second stay at Sheela (2004 & July 2010) and I still would recommend this place. It might be a little basic but the location is just great and the restaurant is very good. (lovely at night with all the candles). The staff is helpful and the garden is very relaxing.

Only reason why you go to visit Agra is Taj, perhaps even Red Fort. The location of this hotel is almost perfect. You can also wake up early to take sunrise pictures of Taj. The garden is a God-send. In fact, i found it to be the nicest garden in all of my travel.Tables and chairs all over, candles at...

I stayed here one night due to its great location for visiting Taj Mahal early morning. the hotel is literally within steps of Taj' east gate. Currently you have to buy the ticket from the south gate and that's what I did on my arrival for next day early morning visit. The rooms are basic but clean. There is a...

Really disapointed with this number. I agree, the only good thing is location. Terrible value for money, our room smelt like sewage and the bathroom was shocking - only one tap worked. The hotel manager has a lot of badittute and refuses to acknowledge low season rates.

The only good thing about Sheela is it's close proximity to the Taj Mahal. However, please note that even though it is a stones throw away, you will still need to walk 1km to the ticket booth as you cannot simply buy your ticket directly outside the Taj Mahal. The non AC room I stayed in was like a cell...

This hotel would be my first choice for Agra every time. It is located smack bang at the East gate Taj Mahal and is within walking distance to the ticket office and the Taj Mahal and also the area where all the restaurants are. Rickshaw drivers gather outside the hotel waiting to scam you, but the reality is most places...

The location of the hotel is great, right next to the East gate of the Taj Mahal, however there are no views from the property. The rooms are fairly basic but clean. We paid 800 Rs for a room with a private bathroom and hot water shower. There are cheaper rooms for 600 Rs that have a hot water bucket...

This hotel sounds great in lonely planet. It even is apparent what is wrong with it when your first get there. However, if you pay for an A/C room beware, they will shut off your A/C in the middle of the night. Then you are left with a choice be mean and wake up the guy on duty or go...

Stayed here as in Lonely planet guide but I think the staff here must have sat back and done nothing since the reviewers last visit. Overpriced room, filled with mosquitoes. I really would try to avoid

As other reviewers have said, the rooms are less than ideal, not the cleanest and with a few mosquitos buzzing around and the largest gecko I have ever seen who decided to take a sleep in my bag! However, the location is 1 minute from the Taj East gate and the place is quiet. It is located in the no...
