We stayed overnight and the location of the hotel proved to be plus. We hit the hotel at midnight and had confirmed bookings for an AC room in the heat of summer. But when we checked in to the hotel, the AC was not working and had to move to a non ac room.

The only thing Hotel Sheela has going for it is the close proximity to the East Gate of the Taj Mahal. This hotel is dirty....very dirty. The hotel front desk staff is unresponsive at best. They require you prepay for your stay upon check-in. I'm guessing because of past customers being so disgusted with the place they refused to pay?...

We arrived early in the morning on the overnight train from Varanasi - cost INR50 for a auto from the railway station. As our room wasnt free, they very kindly let us use a recently vacated room to wash up, get to feel human again and change. Our room was clean, AC worked although noisy and no issues to report...

Stay away if you can. This place (I cannot call it hotel) was booked by our travel agency and part of an organized tour. In my first dirty room there was a lizzard, but the employees refused to get it out for me. Since I had one sitting on my face during a night in Sri Lanka, I really did...

I gambled and booked an A/C room for one night at Hotel Sheela in Agra. It certainly is a cheap hotel (800 Rs, I believe), yet the location is extremely close to the Taj Mahal -- just outside the East Gate. Also - everyone knows where it is, so no problems with rickshaw drivers, etc. The room's A/C worked well...

Room with AC is a machine in the window that leaves room for insects to come in. Our hole bed was full with dead moscitos. The AC was way to cold but you couldn't turn it down. The only good thing was the price of 800 Rp for two and the garden. But the rooms were awful.

The only saving grace for this hotel is its proximity to the taj. The hotel is near the east gate and is a budget hotel maybe for the back packers. The hotel is pretty basic and is ok for a days stay. Plan to stay for a few days in agra as the taj and the forts should be enjoyed...

This place was great! When traveling in India you have to remember that was it affordable is not going to have all of the western amenities. From a young traveler's perspective, Sheela was ideal. It's about a 30 second walk to the Taj Mahal, it's quiet, and has A/C in some rooms. It cost me 800 rupees a night for...

Sounds like some of the rooms might vary, ours was very basic almost grotty, but it is a budget hotel so don't expect too much. Fine if you are only staying one or two nights which is plenty to see the Taj. There are much better places to spend more time than Agra. The Hotels saving grace it's location very...
