I would recommend staying here for budget travellers. Rooms are clean and airy, food is filling and cheap, nice dining/lounge area for conversation and television, use of laptop on request, 10 minute walk to Taj Mahal east gate (STOP FOR A COFFEE at 25 hours cafe en route!) Owners currently constructing a roof garden/terrace which will be complete April/May 2012. One downside is traffic noise but that's India and that's budget accommodation...

Room Tip: Not rooms that are just off the road/exit

We stayed some nights there and had a lot of fun with the family! They are all very nice and helpful in every aspect. Soon there will be a rooftop restaurant with Taj Mahal view too!
We liked the location because it is in walking distance to the Taj Mahal. The value is hard to beat there. There is free WiFi (not too fast :-) and one communal hot shower.
The restaurant/communal area is very nice too.
