“Better than I thought”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 May 2012

This hotel was booked as part of a group travel tour. Prior to coming to the hotel I read some of the TripAdvisor reviews and was concerned.

We stayed here for 2 nights. The hotel was welcoming with cool drinks which was refreshing after a long bus ride. Our double bedroom was located on the ground floor. We were near the ping pong table, which was located outside. The hotel has an indoor/outdoor arrangement. Although our room was enclosed, the hallway led directly to outside without a door. This allowed for more bugs to be in the room and corriders. The staff had electric bug swatters that looked like tennis rackets.

The restaurant was good. They had fresh food and available seating for buffet breakfast.
They had a small exercise room which was easy to use and provided water for use during workout.

Room Tip: There are no elevators, so be careful if you get a 2nd floor room and are unable to climb stairs.

We arrived at the Trident in Agra after travelling from Jaipur, where we had also stayed in a Trident Hotel. We were impressed with the hotel in Jaipur so were expecting much of the same. This hotel exceeded our expectations. All of the staff were kind and helpful. The breakfast was superb and after returning from the Taj Mahal in the morning we enjoyed a lovely lunch in the restaurant. We relaxed in the beautifully kept gardens by the pool in the afternoon and we really didn't want to leave. We took the package that included the tour guide and again this was the best tour we had in our entire visit of the Golden Triangle. The whole experience was wonderful and we can't fault it at all. We will be staying here again if we ever return to Agra.

The traditional Indian cuisine in the restaurant was the best we had during our tour of India and was very memorable. We highly recommend trying these delicious dishes! We only stayed one night, and would stay here again, or even just stop in for dinner. The Executive Chef came out to meet us so that we could thank him; he was very personable and even shared a recipe. The garden and pool view from inside via the large windows throughout the lobby and restaurant really brought the outside beauty in. The modern decorations and fresh yellow roses in the lobby were very impressive, yet somehow had a warm atmosphere, perhaos because the staff had great attitides towards their work and were always attentive. Our room was equivalent to the other Trident we stayed, meaning very comfortable and nice, and we both slept well. The entire place is spotless and everyone was exceedingly friendly and helpful. We definitely recommend the Trident Agra.

Room Tip: The pool/garden view rooms made me forget I'm in an urban area

We visited India for the first time in Feb/March 2012. We were on a tour of the Golden Triangle and Shimla. We stayed at The Trident for two nights. It was booked as part of our escorted tour. We had researched it on the internet and were a little wary of it from reviews/photos and its own website. These do not do it justice! From the welcome when we arrived right through to leaving we had a most comfortable and enjoyable stay. Yes, the room was pretty average and the corridors did smell damp - I think it had been a Novotel or similar hotel before being taken over by Trident - but our view was onto the inner garden with pool beyond and was very pleasant. The staff, particularly in the restaurant were superb - friendly, helpful and very anxious to make sure we enjoyed our meal. We had the buffet both nights - wonderful selection (guided through by the chefs) and great value for money. No wonder the restaurant was full both nights - book if you want to be guaranteed a table. The waiting staff were efficient and friendly. We had a late lunch on our second day - a simple snack on the terrace overlooking the pool and garden but very relaxing. We did notice that there was a shortage of loungers/space by the pool on a couple of occasions. The 'must do' at The Trident is to go out through the Kids' Club area into the rear garden where they grow their own vegetables - wonderful display. Walk further to the little garden pool - very peaceful.

Room Tip: Try to be on the rear of the ground floor facing into the garden and pool area

Quite nice hotel evethough we did not like the ground floor overlooking the gardens room as it did not offer the desired privacy especially after sundown . Very nice garden surroundings and a wonderfull pool combining with the excellent quality of food and service , ( a fantastic head cook who in fact had tried to please everyone in our group),offer the ideal residence for the Taj Mahal expedition .Strongly recommended.

Room Tip: If you desire privacy avoid ground floor rooms .
