“Great location and Cheap”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 March 2012

100 meters from the Taj East gate, 1100r for a family of 4. Rooms were a bit dirty, service average. Beds only came with a bottom sheet and a grotty blanket. Breakfast was ok. You don't stay here for the hygiene or food, you stay here because its cheap and close to the Taj.

I do not recommend this hotel. The room we stayed in (1000 Rs - too much !!!) was alright, but very dark - for sleeping only. Bed was not clean. The bathroom was tiny, very old, dirty. Very loud in both nights esp. because of (many) barking dogs. Outside sitting area is the only positive thing I can mention: quite nice. I would not recommend to eat there though!!! I ordered a buttered toast and this was - very visible - molded!

Firstly, you possibly can't get a better location if your purpose for visiting Agra is the Taj Mahal! I think i am probably easily pleased, but we found this another good choice of cheap accommodation in India. Chosen solely for location, but the rooms and the food were both fine so it was bonus all round. Access to Sheela is via rickshaw as it inside the car exclusion zone. It is surrounded by voracious souvenir vendors and not so many decent food choices so we ate in for our couple of meals. Food was fine and garden area was very pleasant. Shower was hot, no aircon, but we didn't need it. Management appreared to be a bit frosty, but if approached politely, were helpful enough. No wifi which was surprising, but we weren't there long enough for it to be a problem.

From Jaipur we drove to Agra as we did not want to miss the Taj when we were as is on called on the golden triangle . As we wanted to stay near the Taj Mahal . Hotel Sheela was recommended to us by our friends .It is a budget place though it had a sit out garden where we could eat .it seemed to be crowded and the attitude of the staff was a little laidback ,Thought we did meet Mr .Bansal the owner of the place . The food served was quite tasty and we ate all our meals there as we told that the hygienic standards of the restaurants at Agra are dubious at best .
We did not have Taj view from the hotel but it was a short walk to it, very convenient the main reason tourists come here

This place has a gorgeous outdoors area where you can sit in the sunshine and watch monkeys. The chai's not great and the food takes a while to arrive but it's a real oasis of calm and a nice place to relax. The cheapest rooms are r600 a night and ours was very dark, basic and cell like with a big gap under the door for the mozzies to have easy access, a dirty bathroom and freezing cold/damp (we were there in winter). The next rooms up are better though still very damp - make sure you air your bedding during the day and take plenty of warm clothes. And the rooms up from that we didn't actually experience, but met a couple who told us they had a 'rodent problem' - nice. Overall I'd say this is a good budget option but not a great one.
