“Good location, average budget hotel”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 April 2012

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.

Rooms are basic but big and the location right by the Taj West gate is fab. The staff are so friendly make it such a good friendly place to stay. Would love to comeback.

Hotel Sidhartha is located quite close to the Western Gate of Taj Mahal, in the Tajganj area. Vehicles are not allowed inside Tajganj and hence, do not carry any heavy luggage. The hotel is very basic in terms of services offered. There is an open air garden restaurant where you can have monkeys for company. First floor rooms are comparatively better. Not a bad option for a night stay in Agra.

Room Tip: Take a first floor room

As in a lot of hotels in India "ask and thou shalt receive" is essential to keep in mind. It was very cold in February. We had to ask for a top sheet (when will they ever learn that westerners are appalled at the lack of a top sheet?) - they saw me coming..........with the sheet came toilet paper and soap an extra pillow and a lovely warm duvet. We slept well despite the usual hard bed.....
Kept the bathroom door closed to give the next room privacy in their bathroom!
The overall cleanliness was badly marred by the complete neglect of the mirrors (not on the cleaners' list?)

The garden cafe (not roof as suggested- the monkeys own that as my husband found out when he took his computer up there to do some work) has the same sort of problem, you have to ask for the table to be cleaned - point out the need for water! and try not to handle the chairs........ the staff are very well meaning so be nice but do ask.............

Quiet

It was cheap and very well placed so the value was good. We recommend it .

Room Tip: Not all rooms have hot water (but it is provided by the bucketful in other rooms) Remember to ask...
