Best hotel in Agra

Posted 30 Oct, 2015

Its near to east gate of Taj quarter, hotel is in good location at VIP road near to Shilpagram. Room is nice, owner is such a nice person just like our family member. I made this booking from online. I'm fully satisfied with service and room it is a best budget hotel in Agra distance is 1km to Taj quarter. They bring entry tickets of Taj quarter for us it is time saving issue in Agra sight seeing and they give a best plan for sight seeing. They bring auto in reasonable rate.

Well-maintained hotel with good service

Posted 15 May, 2015

I had been to Agra for an official purpose and resided at this hotel. The hotel was convenient to locate and there was no issues during our stay. The surrounding was good and Taj quarter is closer to hotel. The appearance of the hotel is good and interiors were nice. The staff members in the hotel are helpful and quick in services. The room allotted to me was spacious and cleanly maintained with all the needful amenities in good condition. The food served in the hotel was good in quality and tasted nice in all the varieties I ate. There were no activities or sightseeing trip arranged by the hotel management. Overall, my stay was comfortable and maintenance was up to the mark.

Good hotel in attractive location but old room interiors.

Posted 9 Dec, 2014

The hotel was very convenient and centrally located and it was near by the Taj quarter. The surrounding of the hotel also was very good. The interior was average but well maintained. The service of the staff was very good and friendly, helpful and hygienic. They were quick attentive and more concern about the guest. The room was good and spacious but the interior furnishing was bit old and they need to upgrade it. All amenities were available and working well. They don't have food facility so I had outside. There were no any activities in the hotel it was a specific kind of guest house. The check in and checkout procedures was good. They stay was worthy and recommendable.

Rooms with AC, cooler etc available.

Posted 14 Oct, 2013

A cheap budget hotel on VIP road, East gate Jamaal. Rooms with AC, cooler etc available. If you are going for seeing Taj and you are by road, this I find best. Reasonably good amenities are available. I will stay again when I go Agra. Small restaurants are available. Open front space for car parking. Battery operated electric car to taj available from nearby tourist center on VIP road.

Good location and helpful staff members

Posted 28 Nov, 2014

One of nicest place to stay at. Nice hotel, good location, helpful staff members and the team. Great food and drink are available here. Rooms are big and clean. Best thing is that Taj is just 1 km from here and some other visiting places are nearby. Over all nice hotel and will love to go back again.
