Reviewed 4 April 2012

We stayed here for one night, just to vis the Taj Mahal. The swimming pool was closed and at the terras there was poor sevice. So we decided to have our drinks on the terras of a primitive restaurant next door. On high noon we visited a Mac Donald's, opposit the hotel.

An average hotel, good rooms and a small shopping centre across the street. The room was clean and the bathroom was adequate for a 1 night stay.
The service was OK, but they charge Internet additionally.
Would visit again.

Hotel was well situated for visiting the Taj. Not sure if I would stay longer than that. Rooms were a little dated, but clean. Quick service from the lobby attendant upon arrival. Was quaint that the rooms still used a turn key. Elevators made me feel uneasy, though there were no technical issues that I saw. Beds were comfortable and room was adequately clean.

Was not happy with the service at the hotel's restaurant. Very rude. Chose to eat elsewhere due to the poor service from the head waiter.

Note: They charge for Wi-Fi; however, pay for the minimum time and the password they provide will work all night. (Sorry if this post makes them fix it, though I doubt the cost to do so will be worth their time.)

Second Note: Unrelated to the hotel, be wary of the McDonald's across the street. Not safe.

Stayed here for two nights as part of a small group (12 people) tour. Hotel only 2.5 Km from Taj Mahal with a small shopping mall across the street (including a McDonald's, if you're desperate!) Good public areas, pleasant, reasonably priced restaurant, which overlooks the (currently being renovated) swimming pool. Rooms OK – clean and quite spacious, but a little faded.

Room Tip: It's fairly near to a road, so the further back (towards the pool) the better
