We stayed here for one night, after we found out that taj mahal is closed on fridays :D The manager gave us good advices, for example where the next post office is, how much autos should cost etc and was always friendly. The room was clean and better than anything else one can get for the price I guess

I stayed here with four of my friends a while ago. This was my first stay in India. The room was clean and the service was nice for their price in paying. That bad part was the location wish it wS closer to other attractions and places to eat and relax.

Basil Inn is just 1 kilometre from the East gate to the Taj Mahal, very close to that gate's ticket office. It's also a nice short walk to the Taj Park, a nice place to watch the sun go down over the Taj. The rooms are basic and without wi-fi, but the service we received here was excellent. The owner...
