“Good location, average everything else”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 October 2010

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.

this was a business trip undertaken and the hotel is absolute value for money. being in agra the hotel choice is enormous and the rates high. on the other hand there are lot of third grade hotels which are dirt cheap but a decent person cannot stand there.therefore to find a hotel that suits your pocket and still provides you with a decent night's sleep is difficult. however amar hotel is one that gives you all the comforts at a reasonable cost. very good location...near to the taj and all the hotels, closeby to the main sadar bazaar and pizza hut is within walking distance. the staff is also very helpful

As we were too tired in Mathura & Vrindawan we needed to relax at a comfortable place, Hotel Amar was our choice as we had heard about its food and ambience being good.

The place is ideally located near Taj and good food joints around Agra, staff here is courteous and helps in tour planning, food is average and this place also has a small swimming pool, we did not use it though.

Overall a very good value for money stay and would stay here again.

Definitely a terrific swimming pool that we (and especially our kids) enjoyed a lot after the long and hot visits of Taj Mahal and Red Fort: The slide is priceless for the kids ! Besides, hosts are nice, rooms are large and clean but a bit noisy for those with window on the street. We did not try the restaurant for lunch/dinner but breakfast was good. For dinner in Agra, no doubt best address in town is Dasaprakash.
