The hotel is located on a busy street, very centrally located in this crazy town. Only a 5-minute ride to the eastern gate of the Taj Mahal, right next door to a Pizza Hut, and very close to a half dozen souvenir shops where our group purchased T-shirts, wooden statues, and jewelry. (As you look at the front of the hotel, go left and there’s a cluster of shops with very nice shopkeepers who will bargain for a reasonable price on all merchandise.)
The lobby of the hotel is nice. The staff was attentive and moderately friendly.
We stayed in a room on the fifth floor with a large double bed. No complimentary water (rather in the rooms they had available ridiculously priced Evian water, 5 times higher than regular water available at the shops across the street). Double bed was OK but really hard, bathroom was moderately clean. Large flat screen TV with international cable, but the cable box is tricky to figure out. We had to call reception (there’s a card to insert and then two remote controls to power and/or change channels) and they sent a guy up who turned the box on for us and then expected a tip. Wi-fi is available for a price: 125 rupees, which is pretty expensive for one hour (and you have to use it continuously – once you log in your 60 minute timer starts and can’t be stopped).
Breakfast was included in the rate and was both buffet and cooked-to-order eggs. We only ate one of the two mornings we were there, but the food was OK -- not great. There is a pool but we didn’t swim in it.
