Just south of the Taj Mahal are a clutch of budget Lonely Planet type hotels and hostels, with what seem to be nearly identical. This hotel was one of them, and I have no real complaints. Its literally just a 100 yards from the west entrance to the Taj, which was great when we got up to visit at dawn. The location is the main draw here. Otherwise, the hotel has a nice little courtyard, a decent restaurant, and a helpful front desk. The rooms are pretty spartan, with threadbare, stained towels, and not much in the way of bedding. Also, the shower barely worked, so we mostly ended up bathing under the faucet with a bucket. Otherwise, the room was clean, and the a/c worked great, so it wasn't too bad. This place definitely felt more like a youth hostel than a hotel, but it was fine for what it was - and the price and location were great.
