“Good for some, not for others”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 September 2010

This was my first trip to India and finding a good budget hotel was difficult. I read the reviews of the Ranjit Hotel on Tripadvisor but decided to try it anyway. I was only going to stay here for a day so how bad could it be?

I arrived at the Agra Cantt train station and asked someone where this hotel was. The guy, "who was on his way to a train" said I would need to take a taxi to get there. I was surprised because I knew it was near the train station. He told me that I was not at Agra Cantt. He directed me to one particular taxi driver. Within 5 minutes, we were at the hotel. You can see the train station from the hotel.

The lobby was small and simple. Check-in was fine though it was done at small table (card table). The bellboy was all too eager to bring your luggage up to my room.

In my room, one of the staff delivered some towels and I gave him a tip. Five minutes later, another of the staff delivered more towels. I told him I did not need them because I had some. The room itself was large and noticeably worn. It had a king/queen size bed and a small vanity without a mirror. It also had an air-conditioner that did not work and a ceiling fan that did. The speeds of the fan seemed a bit inappropriate or maybe it was just me. It was either too fast or too slow. The bathroom really needed a cleaning. It had numerous bugs, mildew and it lacked hot water. No, I did not call management.

In the evening, it was very dark , dusty and somewhat active. Although I felt safe walking around, I am sure there will be others who may not feel the same. I was looking for a restaurant and a STD calling station. I found neither. There is a restaurant at the train station which serves multi-cultural cuisines. I saw a lot of the tourists stop in.

Check-out was quick and easy. My train was at 12:25 AM and it took me about 5-10 minutes to walk to the train station.

Overall, if I was in Agra for a longer stay, I would not stay here. I would put up the extra money for a more accommodating hotel. I would only stay here if there were no other option. People who would use a hotel for sleeping purposes and are not bothered with how it looks may be fine here.

Close to Agra Cannt. Railway Station, so you can avoid riksha-vultures. Empty in July so prices quite ok (200 IR per person per night). Some dirty corridors and rooms destroyed by reconstruction, but our rooms without AC better than those in Delhi (Hotel Anand - with AC). Stuff lazy, we had to wait long for food (wich was average) trying to deceive you but not importunate.
So the result is average no good no bad.

I have to this hotel on 07-02-2010. This is the most terrible hotel on my whole trip to india. Rooms are dirty and there is almost no room service. No aminities in the room and you will vomit after entering the batroom. Beds are hard and dirty. Owners are arrogent and take every chance to ripp you off. At 10 pm they sent me outside to have a photocopy of my passport. The next moring they brought back us to hotel to collect the passsport photocpoy and threatened me with the police, I took a car for whole day from the whole day and it refused to drop us to station which is a stones throw. At evening the owner sent the bell boy three times for the bill. The reception wasted 2 hrs for filling up the form although its their duty, For staying for extra half hour they charged me full day payment for whole room. While checking out the owner didn't even allow us to wait in the reception and almost thrown our luggage out of the hotel in the muddy road. They have a filthy restaurent and they dont allow food from outside. Three ill behaved old haggerds work in reception and they takes every chance to ripp you off, threaten you and make money out of you. The bell boys are arrogent and roam around the door aleays through out the night. I never thought a hotel could be such ill behaved. My suggestion - don't dare to stay. The owner also ownes " The Grand Hotel Agra". Specially for non indians - don't dare to stay.

The biggest advantage of this hotel is it's close proximity to the Agra Cantt. railway station (abount 3/4 min walking distance). This hotel is specially recommended for the travellers who are travelling would like to arrive in Agra and take the same day Agra Tourism tour (which starts from the railway station). This hotel can also arrange for car with driver for local site seeings in reasonable cost. The hotel also hosts a small restaurant which serves food which I can say just ok.

There are two main disadvantage of this hotel:

1. No lift (This is a 3 storied hotel)
2. No water purifier like aqua guard is available. You must need to buy mineral water bottle from hotel or from outside.

Also, rooms are not very clean.

  • Liked — Location is good.
  • Disliked — Problem with drinking water and non availability of Lift.
