We just left the shanti lodge after a one night stay. The rooms are basic but have everything you need. The nicer rooms are in the back and the manager Viejay is very helpful. The room was clean and the sheets had been freshly washed. This is not a highclass resort, but for backpackers and gap year travelers it's just what you need, and well within budget. There may be a few mosquitos (we had one tricky mosquito, no more) but this is common with most hotels in this country especially if trying to stay within a tight budget.
The hotel is within a short walk (no more then 5 min) from the Taj Mahal south gate, which is the best gate as the least amount of tourist use this gate.
The restaurant has good food and service with fantastic views of the Taj Mahal from a lower and upper deck. I would recommend the rice pudding and banana, mango, or papaya lassi!!
