We stayed here for 2 nights, with the main intention of checking out the Taj Mahal. The location of hotel was great. We were advised to go to the Taj early in the morning to avoid long queues and the heat. The location of the hotel helped as it is located about 5-7 min walk from the west gate into...

This hotel in Taj Ganj offers a beautiful location to shoot Taj Mahal in the evenings in low light with lovely coffee and chai. It is 10 minutes walk from the East gate and Taj can be viewed from the terrace even if you are not a photographer you are bound to enjoy the view. Although we were not staying...

Kamal is in one of the best locations you could ask for. The view from the roof top restaurant (with great food too) is amazing. The Taj is a lot closer than it looks on a lot of the photos. The hotel is less than 5 minutes walk to the South Gate and less than 10 to the East/West gates...

Positives: Great location near south and west gate of Taj Mahal, great view on Taj Mahal on rooftop, restaurant is ok, rooms are clean and modern. Negatives: No service, the receptionist doesn't help you with the luggages, he seems to know everything but actually he doesn't. He has no idea about how long will take to go to Mathura by...

This is a good choice in Agra, looked at a couple of rooms and chose the upgraded room for the standard room price. The bed was very comfortable, sheets are clean, and the room is clean. It is very centrally located, has a so-so rooftop restaurant with a great view of the Taj. LP says it is slightly obscured by...

Hotel Kamal is 5 minutes walk to all three gates which is essential if your travelling independently of an organised tour. In addition to it's ideal location, my hotel room and bathroom were clean with all the necessary amenities. (You need to let the staff know 10 minutes or so in advance when you want to have a shower if...

Based on my impression, hotels in Agra were either really expensive and nice or cheap, a bit dingy and had bad reviews. I was pleasantly surprised at the value of hotel kamal ($17-$20) and the quality. The beds were comfortable, the room temperature cool, running hot water, and very friendly and helpful service staff (especially from Sunny). The only complaint...

I choose this place to get the early morning sunrise pictures of the Taj. This is their primary asset and I think the rooms come at a bit of a premium relative to their true value because of this. My room was simple, relatively clean and no frills. The shower didn't provide hot water nor was there toilet paper. Complaining...

Most hotels and guest houses in the Taj Ganj district of Agra represent poor value for money, but Hotel Kamal is probably the pick of the bunch (paying a premium for proximity to Taj Mahal !!). Rooms are reasonably clean and sufficiently large but the hot water is rather intermittent. I had to request facilities like towels, a bed-sheet and...
