Hotel was okay, clean and the food was good. King size bed consists of two separate mattresses, which slept a bit uncomfortable. Pictures are a bit of an oversell, same as the rates. Location was conveniently close to the highlights.

It was a story worth revisiting.Many months before I had commenced discussions with the Marketing Mgr Mr Rahul Sisodia who was courteous to the word C and called back whenever I raised any query. A razor sharp checkin where the wifi password was handed over without any asking. The deluxe room bettered the pic on TripAdvisor , a rarity these...

This was one of the 3-star choices on our tour. Very nice, clean, comfortable room. The bathroom had a tub/shower combo. Huge breakfast buffet with Indian and western foods. We didn't feel like going out for dinner so ate out of the well-stocked mini bar. Wifi was good.

Located quite close to Agra's must see locations and with friendly staff speaking english quite well, i found this hotel experience for an overnight hotel to be an acceptable one. The rooms are considerably run down and needing renovation (ie. The sewer smell on the bathrooms every now and then was quite... intoxicating.) but otherwise a decent accomodation.
