Best things that its location just walking distance from taj Mahal. Hotel is quite old and its need renovation. Tap has water leakage. Staff were good in talking. Food was also worth of money. There is no lift facility
Be careful. Hotel sheela does not refund any amount paid in advance for room booking. We lost the entire amount. They simply said it will be adjusted if you visit within an year. If NOT then the advance amount is forfeited. Total loss.
Rooms were not as advertised! Only the 'deluxe' ones are pictured and we certainly were not in any deluxe room. It was cold and bare. The beds felt damp and the pillows were filthy, some had what appeared to be blood spots on them. No hot water in any of the four rooms we booked. Staff were nice enough, location good, and the food ok but we were not treated fairly, their advert is misleading in that the rooms look gorgeous but are not in reality. Poor lighting around the complex so that trip hazards could not be seen in the dark, one of which was at the top of a set of steps.
The hotel provide comfortable rooms with AC. The restaurant serve typical Indian food, for breakfast, lunch and dinner. The staff is nice and friendly. I recommend this place ! I just the perfect spot to visit Taj Mahal.
We booked for one night, room was dark, damp and dirty! We have been trekking in basic tea houses before coming here and they were much better. Suffice to say we didn't stay here, we checked in to another hotel. You have to carry your luggage from the checkpoint as no cars are allowed through. Only positive is that it is very close to Taj Mahal.
Location is the best, just beside of Taj Mahal! Rooms could be bettet, but for a night and for me is enought, also for the price. The staff are super kind and helpful! The place is quite and very nice! Definetly I will come back! Staff: maybe the rooms could be more clean.
‘Rooms are disgustingly unclean, do not stay here.’ ➖ Sadly the rooms are filthy, really filthy, towels are filthy, all bed linen are filthy, bathroom is filthy, room is cold and damp, blankets are discusting. There is a hole in the bathroom wall at about 8 feet with just some bars over it which I believe goes straight into another rooms bathroom so you could be peered at... Absolutely hated this hotel. We travel all over the world but this is the worst hotel we have ever stayed in. Plus we paid around £30 per night for a room which should be demolished! Do yourself a favour and go somewhere else, you won’t regret it. ➕ The staff are lovely. It’s a few steps from east gate Taj Mahal.
Excellent location set in it's own gardens, only 100 metres from the entrance to the Taj. Very quiet at night. The rooms were clean and tidy and the showers were hot. WiFi worked well. Good food but not excellent. This is the second time I've stayed here and would book it again without any hesitation.
It is very close to Taj Mahal that is true and that makes it easy to get in early when the smoke and fog hide the Taj Mahal from view. There are actually three entrances west, south and east. All are closed to cars and tuk-tuks for about 200 meters. So you will need to carry your belongings. There are of course hotels equally close on the west and south sides, and they are closer to the train station and the city. I don’t know about the south and west sides, but you cannot walk through the east side barricade gauntlet without being offered to buy marijuana, hash, opium, and cocaine (often all by more than one person). I cannot say anything about that, but if that’s your thing, this is your Disneyland. I have to pass blame to booking.com. When you set filters for what you want in a room, it list places without the specific things you filtered for. So it's disappointing when the places you book fail to meet expectations. The list of what this place offers is too short to bother with. What Sheela doesn’t offer is astounding, oh where to begin? There really aren’t windows. Beside the door there’s a floor to ceiling opaque window. The other window in the bathroom actually lacks a window. It’s just a screen which doesn’t keep out the mosquitoes or smoke from all the fires in the area. Bring earplugs because the nightclub music and chorus of barking dogs have no muffle--you know like a window and a door that fits into its frame. No refrigerator, no hairdryer, no upper sheet, just a couple of blankets. But you’ll need that blanket because you may need to cover your head to keep out the mosquitoes. Later you’ll need them to filter the smoke from constant fires. There’s no safe, and you know the lovely assortment of single serving instant coffee, teas with sugar packets and powder creamers that make waking up without a kitchen. Nope. Oh but you do get a hose coming out of the ceiling in the bathroom which seems like some form of drainage. Rest assured you have to drain the condensation from the A/C somewhere and without a suitable window or exterior wall, what could be better then the floor under the bathroom sink. And the sink like camping only has cold water. I for none enjoy a cold shave in the morning; I have to give Sheela credit when she earns it. We received a complimentary bottle of water (that is singular), but it was the whooping 500 ml size. Waiters told us when giving the bill, “Service not included.” In short, it’s a great place to stay when you want to get away from the conveniences of a hotel. You know there are many hostels in town. If I was so presumptuous to make a suggestion to Sheela, it would be to add an “s” to the name…hotel becoming hoStel.…
We booked this due to the proximity to the east gate and ticket office which worked really well at the crack of dawn. The hotel is no frills but provides all you need for a night or two. The room was quite cold in the afternoon and we requested a heater, but lack of power points meant we never ended up using it. We slept warmly under the two heavy blankets provided. The fact that our bathroom was open ventilated to the next door bathroom meant some interesting noises for both of us. The staff were helpful and friendly and it was very quiet at night until the call to prayer starts. Good location for the Taj, and places to eat and shop on your doorstep. Try Mr Jain for food, we at there twice, cheap and good food.
