“Don't bother staying here”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 July 2010

We were taken to this hotel by a touting taxi, it was the second one in Agra we looked at. We were all tired and the room prices seemed reasonable so we decided to stay for one night. We had 2 rooms on the ground floor with air coolers. The room size was ok but the bed was rock hard and the rooms were not clean, crickets and the occasional cockroach were sharing with us. The air coolers and roof fan didn't really help the stifling heat and humidity and were very noisy. The worst nights sleep I had in India! The bathroom was basic and there was no hot water, not that it was needed, a cold shower every couple of hours was wonderful.
Outside the room was a communal patio area surrounded by high walls and plants which was quite nice, it rained later in the evening and we sat out here and cooled off.
The staff were generally helpful but were only too pleased to ask for a tip!
Breakfast was toast and jam and tea or coffee, very uninspiring. The other meals didn't look that good either.
The power went off for short periods in the evening and in the night so then you really did cook in your room.
We did gain amusement whilst sitting on the patio in the rain when a rat came out of the drain and headed into the foliage around the patio. A fine figure of an animal that he was played in the bushes for a while then bounded up the stairs into the kitchen.
The Taj Mahal is wonderful and I would say that it's a "must see" but if you are staying overnight in Agra then don't stay here.
