The only 2 good things about the stay are: (a) Location (Near to Taj East Gate) (b) Good interiors, gardens and other decorations.
We visited Agra in Dec'16 and decided to choose this place for our stay. We also hired a taxi from here, which was the biggest mistake of my life. The driver holds incomplete documents and was not allowed to enter Gwalior (for which we hired it). After wasting so many hours, the driver took us back to half a way and assigned a private number taxi for Gwalior. He also asked us to be alert and cautious about the route and driver since he is not known and also it is not a commercial vehicle. I was with my wife and daughter and I cannot describe how unsafe I felt in that situation. But we decided to move on. Finally we reached Gwalior Fort at 4:30pm, which was closed within an hour. By this, the whole day got wasted. The most depressing part is that, owners never tried to compensate it in any way.
The hotel is not at all value for money. The amount they are charging is way too high, if we compare to the services and facilities that they provide. In spite of a good rated hotel, rooms do not have the helpline phone extensions. Whenever we tried calling for any assistance on their mobile number, the person is always busy with multiple things. They have very much lack of staff, no dedicated person to help. Breakfast is very very ordinary, just 1-2 items in the veg menu.
Even before arriving here, we could sense the services. They never reply on emails, whether you write them directly or even through booking.com. They took weeks to respond and only after rigorous follow-ups, you could get answer to any of your query before reaching there.
I could not recommend anyone to stay here. Save money and stay in some other hotel which is even nearer to Taj, and obviously have better facilities.
