We got to this Agra hotel via a tour booked by an agency. Officially this hotel is rated as 3 star, but we should just have run away as soon as we got to the hall. We stayed here only one night and we were the only guest in the hotel. We were backpacking trough India and as we had...

Room service was prompt and good. The reception desk was quite cooperative and the manager was quite amiable. Associated facilities like cabs, city tours were good and decently priced. Proximity of the hotel to the railway stations, Taj Mahal and the Fort is close. Restaurant service was VERY poor. It was not only slow but also highly overpriced compared to...

This review is from our stay a few years back and hopefully things may have changed. We had a terrible experience overall with this hotel from the moment we stepped in. The reception desk had at least 4 staff members on duty when we came in around 7pm. There was no line or guests waiting at the desk yet we...

We were booked into this hotel as part of the Golden Triangle tour on our last trip to India. Believe me, do not stay here - I sure didn't! I wouldn't even call this a hotel - more like a hostel. The reception area was deserted when we checked in. I was freaked out just from sitting in the lobby....

I stayed in this hotel for one night during my visit to Agra. I honestly don't understand why this place is still open. Almost nothing works, not even basic services such as water in the room. The hotel is huge and maybe it was decent 30 years ago, now it looks abandoned. We were probably the only guests and we...

Staying at this hotel is kind of like being trapped on the set of 'The Shinning' only the rooms in that film were nice. At Hotel Chanakaya you'll find dirty, damp, frankly disgusting rooms at very expensive prices. If you go down the road you can find a really nice one much cheaper. DON'T STAY THERE! You saw what happened...

I booked my hotel through Agoda between 23rd to 26th. When the room was given, it was horrible and requested for another room and none of the room that was showed was good. The room was not well cleaned. Bedsheets were not well washed and brown in color. Bathrooms are the most worst. No hot water. They dont have geyser...
