Don't stay at this place! First of all they wanted money up front and promised much more than they could keep. We was promised hot shower (NOT bucket) and wifi 24 hour. Nothing worked. When we said this they promised it be fixed next morning, but of course it wasn't. We left after one night but not before we had...

Hi Guys, who ever planning to book this hotel please read my review and decide. Firstly the moment we stepped in to hotel, the ambience of the reception was good, the guy over there received me politely. He has all the details of me like check in time, my name, etc. I was shocked when he asked me to pay...

Don't go there. The place is so crappy that we could feel a strong electricity current when touching the tap for the shower! The 'host' did not respond to our complaint. We have travelled India for 3 months and have seen our share of crappy places but this was definitely the worst. After checking out we stayed for half the...

All the good things are in the title. The location, the view from the rooftop are amazing; and the owner is friendly and help you in everything that you need. In the other hand, the rooms are not clean and the outside bathroom is too small and dirty.

Don't go expecting much in terms of service and other stuff you expect from a hotel. This place has an amazing view of the Taj and is definitely among the closest to the entrance, what more can you ask for? I must say that we actually got good service and the rates were very reasonable. It was all a bit...

Had a conference in Jaypee Palace and found no where except Hotel Host to have place. They were kind enough to ensure me that the room would be booked for us. We were offered free breakfast since we went for the 1500/- room per night. Anoop surprisingly was the chef and the food was cooked really well. He also assisted...

We didn't stay at this place - thank god. But we stopped off for breakfast. We ordered masala omelette and toast. It was served by two children who I think had made it. The omelette was burnt, cold, green in colour and tasted very odd. The "toast" had been dipped in some kind of oil and tasted rank. Neither of...
