“Friendly staff, good location”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 March 2012

We stayed 3 nights at Host Hotel. The rooms are spartan basic but clean. The staff is very friendly. Host Hotel is located very near to the west gate of Taj Mahal in a quite street. The rooftop shows a fantastic sight of the Taj Mahal

Room Tip: Compared to the price/quality of other guesthouses is Hotel Host a good option.

Apart from the unparalleled views of the Taj from the roof, which really are spectacular, this is without question the worst place ive ever stayed. The padlock on the door looked as though you could virtually pull it off, the bed was so hard and uncomfortable we may as well have been sleeping on the floor, literally rock hard and impossible to get comfy. A blanket that looked as though it had NEVER been washed and that stray dogs had been sleeping on it. A freezing cold room, and no hot water and a disgusting bathroom. Also the power fails intermittently. Word of warning, do not stay on the roof any longer than necessary to get a few pics as i was attcked by 3 monkeys, totally terrifying. Although it is very cheap, you definately get what you pay for.

Very welcoming and eager to please staff. They are willing to help you in any shape and form. The owner himself sat down and helped me plan the next 10 days of my trip. Very cool! They also have free wi-fi and a beautiful rooftop to chill and eat while looking at the taj mahal.

We arrived in Agra around 12pm in the evening and this hotel had been recommended in the rough guide as somewhere cheap but clean so we thought given its location we would land there!!

We only managed to stay for one evening or 6 hours!! The rooms were filthy with stained sheets and toilets that had not seen a clean in years! Utterly appalling and realistically we shouldn't of checked in!!We did as we had been traveling for 31 hours and were utterly knackered and at this point unsure of the standard of hotels in Agra!!

Good point - the room top view of the Tai Mahal is outstanding and the air con thou nosiy did work!

All in all it was pretty vile and I would not recommend to anyone.

The worst hotel that i've ever seen. Dirty, no windows, toilets horrible, bed and sheets ... no comment.
Not expensive but doesn't worth 1 roupi. We've left after one hour...

Avoid !!!
