Hotel Saniya Palace B&B is located in Taj Ganj, in the heart of Agra Old Town, and five-minutes walk distance from the Taj Mahal. The property boasts a restaurant on its rooftop terrace, whose views of the Taj Mahal are unparalleled. As a UNESCO World Heritage Site, the Taj Mahal is one of the 7 wonders of the world. A double terrace dressed with green plants awaits you to enjoy a typical Indian dish or drink a cellar facing this architectural masterpiece. The 12 rooms of Saniya Palace all have a private shower room with a toilet. Just like the lounges and the restaurant, mixing marble floor and many objects of Mughal furniture, special care has been taken in the decoration of each room, the draperies and fabrics plunge you 4 centuries back in history from India. Rooms include a full American or Indian breakfast. The hotel offers free WI-FI connection in all rooms and restaurants and lounges. The reception is open 24/24 hours and there is a tour desk where you can organize your visits to discover the many remarkable sights of the city, most of which are only a few kilometers from the hotel (the Fort of Agra, the mausoleums of Itimad-ud-Daula and Akbar in Sikandra ...). Couples particularly appreciate the location of this property. They give him a rating of 8.7 for a stay for two.

Good experience. The staff is very nice and the view of the Taj Mahal on the rooftop is extraordinary. The traditional Indian food is good. Bobby, the manager, is so friendly and generous. He was a great help during our stay in Agra. His advice was precious

Great rooms, clean and comfort, amazing view from the rooftop on the Taj Mahal, 3minutes away from it. Very good traditional food also. Bobby was the best member staff and the best manager. Very practical to visit the Taj Mahal early in the morning

I stayed there for a couple of nights, and Bobby was a super helpful host. I loved the location, so close to Taj Mahal! Terrace was my favourite part. Rooms could have been more clean though. But do recommend for a budget stay.

This hotel is something special. It is just 2 minutes walking distance from Taj Mahal entrance, and you can enjoy AMAZING views of Taj Mahal from their rooftop restaurant terrace, which is one of the highest in Taj Mahal's vicinity. They serve delicious food at reasonable prices. You can even book a very inexpensive room with the view of Taj Mahal. The staff was extremely helpful, and they provided us with a very professional certified guide.

Please don't take this hotel.. I am writing this review because I had the worst experience.. On 26th Dec I had called the hotel for a room for 2 for 28th Dec and the room cost was Rs 950 and they asked for advance.. And the staff told me to sent Rs 500 as advance to another persons Phone pe account. . . And I had sent that.. Due to some very Emergency reasons. I cannot reach the hotel on 28 th Dec . So I called the hotel on 27th Dec Morning and asked for a cancellation .. And the staff had told me they didn't get any conformation regarding my Booking, and they didn't get the advance money. And I asked them you people told me to sent the money to another person phone pe account.. And they have nothing to say.. Simple telling call the person you sent the money.. And I called him.. And he is scolding me for cancelling and his behavior is very rude, and disrespectful. And he told he will not sent me the money back. And I sent messages in his phone pe also. Regarding the return of money . He blocked me. Today 28th Dec I called the hotel and the staff told to sent the screenshot of the payment done.. And I sent them that,. Then the staff told to call the person I sent the money.. And I called him & he with at most contempt. He asked me my number and he told he will only give Rs 300. . The main problem. Is this hotel doesn't have a bank account I guess... If there is one. Then why should we sent money to another persons Bank Account.. It's clear that they are robbing you The staff and the management has no correct guidelines. That how to Cancel Or refund the Customer.. The Staff and the Management should study how to behave to a customer Kindly keep my experience in mind and Take the decision to book this hotel or Not Thank You

TERRIBLE STAFF, poor rooms, 1 maybe 2 star standard, the ac and power worked and theres water and a basic wifi signal. Quite noisy, great view of Taj Mahal from terrace and food and drink poor quality and overpriced.This guesthouse is very close to The Taj Mahal entrances aswell. Your better to stay elsewhere and come here to have breakfast,lunch or dinner or just a drink and enjoy the view without the rest of this rundown guesthouse. When you have a padlock on the door of the rooms instead of a proper doorlock, tells you all you need to know about this place... no view worth having from bedrooms only from the terrace.

I stayed here with my 4yo son for about 3 nights, we booked the superior room at the top. The only room available on the roof top. If was amazing,I was very impressed with the room from which you could see the Taj Mahal. the room was very clean , the bed comfy and big , hot water, clean towels and drinking water available. The rooftop restaurant has the best view and the manager Bobby is super nice. He was friendly and helpful always providing a quick and awesome service. The inclusive breakfast is nice and tasty. Location also is very good,if you visiting Agra and want to be close to Taj Mahal to be able to go there early in the morning this is the place. Is just 3/4 minutes walk away. Many little shops are around and few nice cheap restaurants. I would definitely return. Hugs to bobby and his nice family Perla and Jordan

Pros: - Great location: 2 minutes walk to the Taj Mahal, with a rooftop restaurant that with fantastic views of the building. - Accommodating to breakfast requests: my room rate included breakfast and I chose a mixture of both those on the menu. Substantial dhal and chappatis, served quickly. Cons: - The room looked and felt quite dark (though this is unavoidable as it overlooks a courtyard), with outdated and unappealing decor. - The bathroom was tiny and there wasn't a hot shower. The shower itself had cold water, and the only hot came out of a tap with a bucket for washing. - Hot water not turned on until c 7pm. - Staff weren't very cheerful. A little hospitality and friendliness goes a long way. The only time this was exhibited by the wider staff was on my last morning.

Small simple hotel, at a more than reasonable price. Dedicated staff, who goes out of his way to satisfy his customers. Good breakfast and good food. The most...a magnificent view of the Taj Mahal from the terrace of the restaurant...magic.
