“A dame who is a bit past her prime...”
Reviewed 21 August 2012

Looks like she was once grand, but is now starting to show her age. Rooms are becoming dated in decor and fixtures (bathroom had definitely seen better days), old tube style TVs with poor picture quality, etc. Room service is slow (over an our and two phone calls for a few bottles of water), and the food is over-priced for what you get. Breakfast buffet is itching special.

What was special was being able to see the Taj from our room... great view.

Reached Agra at 10:30 am and decided to Visit Taj Mahal first. It was very hot and humid at Taj so we all were too much exhausted and kids were starving as well. We Check-in at this hotel at 1pm and had a shower and reached at hotel restaurant at 2pm after having shower. At the restaurant Chefs and manager were having their Lunch and we ordered our lunch on AL-a-carta menu and were given approximate 20 minutes waiting. Our order took 45 minutes that only after Chefs finished their lunch and they went back to the Kitchen.

Tips: If you visit this hotel and having lunch at this hotel ask the staff first "Has your Chef already had their lunch or not?"

2nd bad experience. Time 11:00 pm when we came back to hotel after shopping and seeing night life of Agra. We did our booking through MakemyTrip. We had our 8 year old child in our booking and it was clearly mentioned by makemytrip booking voucher about "no extra cost" when we asked for an extra bed in our room we were told to pay 1500 Rs extra charges for it. When discussed on terms instead of explaining I was told to contact the vendor through whom we did our booking. At midnight instead of showing their hospitality Hotel wants their guest to call the vendor to confirm this ... wow. Anyway...we decided to pay for an extra bed. Again after 45 minutes this extra bed reached our room by that time we all were asleep and had no option but to adjust on one bad. Tips: When you check-in at this hotel ... make sure you have discussed everything before hand at the reception else at midnight you will have to call your booking agent to clarify. Hotel Takes No Responsibility. Pay Extra and Enjoy

Room Tip: Hotel Takes No Responsibility.... Truly speaking I got a feeling of being ripped off.

We faced problems with the hotel since start.
- The hotel's booking office in Delhi could not provide us the phone no. of the Agra hotel.
- In the hotel, we had to call atleast 4-5 times for the Fruit basket & cookie platter included in our package.
- We requested Housekeeping people to provide us a bathroom bucket for our kid to have a bath. Upon several calls, it arrived after half an hour. But I can say, it was the dirtiest bucket one can imagine.
- To add it up and to our shock and surprise, on our return to the hotel from the market, we were told that there is no parking space available and we will have to park our car outside the hotel, on the road. Never ever expected such an unprofessional behaviour from a decent hotel.
- The hotel doesnt even check d minibar on its own. They just casually enquire the guests at the time of check out, whether any item has been consumed or not.

Although the hotel was quite neat and clean with a good lobby, but the services were just pathetic. The swimming pool too is really Sad.

Spent one night at the Mansingh Palace in August 2012. The accommodations were short of spectacular, but indeed suitable. The hotel is dated in some respects, but functional for those simply looking for a stayover en route to the Taj Mahal. Some aspects were quite modern (rainforest shower head) while others did not make the grade (when was the last time they changed the shower curtain?). Breakfast was a pleasant surprise, particularly for our group upon returning from a visit at sunrise to the Taj Mahal. All things considered, I would likely stay at the Mansingh Palace again, but would stop short of calling it a destination getaway.

Good hotel with great value for money .... The only thing that can be improved is the quality of bathrooms ...

I will still recommend this hotel to everybody for the location and the value for the money .
