This hotel was on a very good location next to the Taj Mahal. However couldn't see the taj as it is a one story hotel. Walking to the hotel gave us a lot of hassle from store holders wanting to sell their products, however just said no thank you and walked away in confidence. Walking distance to restaurants and shops....

I gave this hotel 5 stars because I'm going to rate it for what it is; a budget hotel with an awesome location. I believe in the philosophy that you get what you pay for. Well at roughly $15/night, I feel the Hotel Sheela is an incredible bargain. I booked this as we rolled into Agra because I began to...

We booked this hotel in advance and to be honest weren't feeling great about staying there - the description in the latest edition of the Lonely Planet guidebook makes it sound pretty grim. However, our room was basic but absolutely fine, for hot water you had to ask staff to fill up a bucket but we didn't find this to...

Popped in here for tea and snacks after our Taj Mahal visit - my second visit - and enjoyed a pleasant hour in the garden catching up on the blog (free wifi). Great little place - real oasis of calm. The rooms look very basic but ok and range between 700 and 1200 rupees per night.

Hotel Sheela exceeded my expectations. My friend and I arrived super early, around 5:45 am, and then manager let us have a room for half of the price so we could sleep for a few hours before starting our day. Everyone was helpful when it came to getting directions. There was no wifi in the room but there was wifi...

This place was terrific! Budget priced, great friendly staff and great food as well. I've read many posts prior to booking. The reason you may have to walk 400m to the entrance is that the area on most days is restricted to electric vehicles only. It's an easy walk and you can't miss the place. 200m from the eastern gate...

Our stay at Hotel Sheela was extremely nice. Rarely you have the urge to stay at a hotel rather than tour around the city. In Hotel Sheela, we loved to spend our free time sitting in the garden restaurant and enjoying the delicious food which we can highly recommand. The hotel is located only 100 metres from Taj Mahal but...

Musty rooms, wet bedding, no heating in winter. Hot water limited at funny times when everyone is busy visiting the Taj Mahal. They advertised the room as Air conditioned and charged extra, but there was no AC. So no heating either during cold winter. When questioned they said they remove the air conditioners in winter. .. The windows would not...

It's nothing like what the photos on the website show, we had no wifi, no clean water (the water coming from the shower was brown and dirty), building was underway and the hall way was being painted, it isn't sound proof at all with the noise from the street coming straight into the room resulting in a rough nights sleep....
