We highly recommend staying at Saniya Palace! The staff are super friendly and helpful, the rooms are clean, and the rooftop restaurant has the best view in Taj Ganj and decent food. Ravi went out of his way to assist my wife when she was sick, helping us to find a doctor and even driving us around on his motorcycle... More

I visited this nice hotel for one night. The hotel has a sky restaurant with a beautiful view to the Taj Mahal. Also it has a nice restaurant, where i enjoyed the food. The rooms are clean. It correlates to the standart of an Indian room for a cheap price for 600 rupies (leas dann 10 euros per night). The... More

We stayed Saniya Palace Inn as part of a two and a half week trip in Delhi, Agra and Rajasthan. First thing to know, this hotel is not trying to a mid-range hotel, it is very much a budget hotel in an excellent location. So as long as you keep the price in context and the fact that it is... More

We were expecting an absolute dump when we got here simply because of all the other negative reviews, but were happily surprised. Our room was very big and we had a view of the Taj (albeit through a funny grated window). The staff were really friendly and helpful. I am not sure what India the other people who have reviewed...

Hotel is near taj Mahel. But location is very dirty. Can't park any vehicle. We went in tempo and it was not allowed near that. We have to take auto and go there. Most people in Agra are cheaters. We were cheated in hotel, by guide and by people in restaurant. My advice is don't stay in Agra better go... More

Provided that this is one of the cheapest hotels in Taj Gang, it has to be said that my expectations were war far worse compared with what we finally found. We arrived to Agra at 22:00, and after discard our first option we decided to give an opportunity to Saniya Palace Inn. Obviously if your looking for comfortable beds, large... More

This is a good budget hotel, Close to the Taj Mahal, and the restaurant has *amazing* views on the rooftop terrace. The rooms are pretty small but clean and comfortable. The staff also were super helpful, and sorted out train tickets at really short notice. Would definitely recommend as good budget option. BTW. The contact details in the Lonely Planet... More

The place is to a walking distance of taj mahal and starting with the good things, there are only two, one the view from the terrace is nice when you are sitting on the terrace and two the staff is really nice.

This hotel has a fantastic view of the Taj Mahal. We stayed in the big rooftop room next to the restaurant. This was amazing, although noisy at times and we worried about the safety of our belongings (as many people eat here). The air conditioning worked, though it was temperamental. The bathroom was reasonably clean and the shower worked, providing... More
