"Review of Hotel Taj Resorts"
Great location, staff very friendly! Our only problem was the cleaning staff and porters always hovered for tips. Often two or three men would come for only one man's work. It was clear they all wanted tips. The last day they all hovered all morning constantly saying hello sir, good morning sir. I felt the hotel management did nothing to protect customers […] from being badgered for tips by the staff. I suggest a tip box for the end of one's stay. No more hovering and false pretences. Just give a generous tip at the end and leave the customers alone. Thank you. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
A hotel that is in walking distance of the Taj Mahal with moden vacilities. Really a good choice of place to stay.Genuine Expedia guest review
Close to east gate of Taj Mahal. Was able to buy tickets for the taj at reception, saving some time and hassle. Food was good but expensive. Otherwise, great hotelGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Fantastic value hotel so close to Taj Mahal."
Lovely hotel with friendly staff. Helpful and accommodating. Nice size rooms. Clean and comfortable but best selling point is that it's a 10 minute walk away from the Eastern Gate of the Taj Mahal. Its worth noting that when you book a room with this hotel, ask to make sure it's above ground. They have two basement floors so not all rooms have a wi […] ndow!!

"It was a bad experince"
It was a bad experince. 1. The bed sheets were not clean - bed sheets and pillos have a strains on them. They are not propely washed. 2. Closed rooms - no outside view and are very small. 3. Hotel staff - ther are not polite in nature.Genuine Expedia guest review
"nice hotel,good location,"
Good hotel, very good location. Nice roof top, nice dinner with musician; nice breakfast. Bedroom too much small for families.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Walking distance to the Taj"
Ask for non-basement rooms. Rooms on upper floors are fine, though some rooms are smaller than others. Service was courteous, breakfast ok. Very close to the Taj.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Standards need improving"
This hotel clearly trades on its close proximity to the Taj Mahal, which has resulted in a lazy approach to hotel guests. Service in the restaurant was slow, the food was greasy and the tablecloths filthy. One tablecloth had a large stain on it which was there when we arrived for dinner and was still there after breakfast. Breakfast was mediocre and […] the toaster had only two aparent settings: burnt or barely toasted. No cold milk was available for cereals and no teaspoons were to be found. The bathroom flooded after a shower, the toilet leaked and regular temperature control in the shower was non existent. The roof top restaurant didn't appear to exist as no tables and chairs were outside and the advertised view of the Taj Mahal from there is now obscured by another building. All in all, a disappointing stay. Book another hotel instead Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"OK, but not great"
We reserved and paid for "premium" rooms, which we were told would be above ground, but were assigned basement rooms when we checked in. When we pointed out that we had been told that the premium rooms were all above ground, we were assigned new rooms. But no apology was offered, and the "mistake" appeared not to be innocent. The rooms and breakfast […] were OK, but not great. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Exactly what we were expecting"
We booked one double and one triple for two nights, and everything was ready when we arrived. The rooms and facilities were exactly what we were expectingGenuine Expedia guest review
The shower was terrible. It sprayed in all directions but straight and the water was either way too hot or way too cold. The beds were very hard. The breakfast buffet was pretty bad as well. It was close to the TajGenuine Expedia guest review
"Satisfactory stay at hotel Taj resorts"
The best part of this hotel is it's proximity to the Taj Mahal. We could comfortably visit the Taj Mahal on both days with this convenience. The overall service is good and I would recommend this hotel to friends visiting Agra.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"near by taj mahal"

"Taj Resorts - Not a Good Stay!"
We were given rooms in basements! With Zero ventilation! Our family did not like the stay at all. Plus point is the location.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Value for money"
Great central location, nothing flash but good value for money. Very good rooftop dining. Well used was bedlinen was main disappointment.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Very good choice"
We stayed here for 1 night just to visit Taj Mahal in the early morning. We've got the room in the basement. Room was good but had a very small window on the top, so it was no daylight. And Airtel mobile operator is not working on the basement. Also one towel was really dirty. Linen on the bed were not perfectly white too. WiFi was good on the lobby […] but we couldn't connect to the network in our room. But everything else was fine - stuff is very helpful and professional, great rooftop swimming pool and restaurant with live music - lovely place to have a drink in the evening. You can even see the Taj from the roof. Breakfast is very good. The only thing this hotel needs to change to become the great one - do not put the dirty linen and towels in the guest's rooms.

"Many better places to stay for the money."
The hotel was very noisy, there was an air conditioning unit situated above our room, and it took the staff half an hour to turn it off and turn another unit on. Housekeeping at 8am in the morning were cleaning the adjoining room, which made it impossible to sleep in. it seems all rooms have an adjoining room situation so you can hear the guests within […] that room. Guest were making a lot of noise in the corridor. This hotel houses a lot of young children. The food in the restaurant was VERY average and over priced, and food was served separate (8 minutes between both our meals). Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Good interior design and nice ambince"
Was a great hotel for a romantic getaway. The dinner is Ideal for the person looking for a nice dinner. On rooftop restaurant you get a look a view of the dome of Taj a pool on your left, live musicians playing soft classical music and candle lights on. What else you can expect from a good hotelGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good Value for Your Money"
Excellent. Very close and convenient for visiting the Taj Mahal. Amenities at the Hotel are Very Good and the Airconditioning suberb during the summer heat.Genuine Expedia guest review
The staff here couldn't have been more welcoming, and it is really only a five minute walk to the Taj Mahal. The rooms were clean and well kept and the food in the restaurant was really nice. The Taj Mahal was closed the morning that I wanted to go but the staff were well informed and let me know as I was going to breakfast at 6.30 am. I would recommed […] this to all travellers Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Location location or shower facilities? Location!"
Stayed two nights at this hotel, 17th & 18th April 2012. The negatives; * The shower! No curtain, warm-ish water only (luckly it was 40 degrees outside) and then it was only a trickle. No pressure I assume was to limit the splashing. * Towels. This could be a positive if I wanted an exfoliation every day. * My room 311, was half of a family joining […] room. Yes the door was locked, but it wasnt a snug fit, so whenever my neighbours opened their entry door, this joining door rattled. I used folded paper into the gap to stop this. * Safe didnt work. Asked reception to send some one up to fix. They couldnt. Locked may bag to the bed frame instead. * Bed was firm, just like every bed in India. The positives; * The location of this hotel is it's huge advantage. Located 200 metres from Shilpgram and 500 metres to the south gate of the Taj Mahal. Its within the vehicle free zone, yet cars can, and did, drop me at the hotel door. Walking to the Taj early morning without having to haggle a ride is a nice change from other parts of Agra and India. Yes, there are rickshaw wallah's stalking out the hotel, but as soon I said "walking distance, I walk" they backed off. Everything said with a smile will go a long way in being understood and left alone. * Rooftop terrace. You can see the Taj from here between the trees. But only just and a new building will soon block it, but the terrace is nice at night for a cool drink, mood lighting and fellow travellers. Remember your insect guard.

"Pleasant, Peaceful and ambient with perfect locale"
Perfect location (Just 1.5 Kms from Taj Mahal (East Gate)) and located in peaceful surroundings. Rooms are comfy and ambience is good for family stay. Rooms have electronics locker, tea/ coffee machine, small refrigerator. Room service and housekeeping are also excellent. Complimentary breakfast served was also very nice !Genuine Expedia guest review
"Nice place to stay for a night"
It is a nice, small hotel close to the East Gate of the Taj (little far from the city center though). It has a nice rooftop bar, restaurant (with live Indian music) and swimming pool from where you can see the Taj. This experience is not worth missing. Few rooms have Taj view, but that will probably disappear once the adjacent building completes. The […] staff is courteous and helpful. Rooms are small but clean and modern. Service at the restaurant in the lobby can be improved. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
A very luxurious hotel with friendly and helpful staff. The rooftop pool and dining area were especially good.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Good Hotel closed to Taj Mahal"
Good Hotel for an early morning visit of Taj Mahal since it is in walking distance to the entrance. Get your ticket the evening before. Room was perfect the breakfast (after Taj Mahal visit) was so so.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Located close to the Taj Mahal"
An average hotel with a great location within easy walking distance of the Taj Mahal.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good location, well appointed room."
This hotel was comfortable enough for our stay in Agra - a visit specifically for the Taj Mahal so proximity was important. I would describe it as a hotel with aspirations and some success in these. Refreshingly clean with adequate bedding (so many hotels ignore the fact that India can be cold in winter!) the room was well appointed. The street is fairly […] typically part construction zone, part tourist market but led directly to the gates of the Taj Mahal which more than lives up to its reputation. Weather was foggy/smoggy so no view of across the street let alone the Taj Mahal but this did not matter. The rooftop area was not really that pleasant anyway. Restaurant was rather ordinary with staff mostly transfixed by omnipresent TV on the wall so service was patchy. Don't expect too much from breakfast buffet. Not the hotel's fault but beware Ambica Tours that arranges cars from the hotel as well as from the street. They deceived us by switching cars part way through a journey to Jaipur. Overall, of good value and standard in Agra the streets of which we found fascinating - even aside from the wonder of the Taj Mahal. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Hotel Taj Resorts - close to the Taj itself"
Key reasons for this hotel: very close to both Taj east gate and the ticket office for Taj. We were given a room that was very humid, so humid in fact that the pain was peeling of the walls, so not very comfortable, but other rooms looked ok. Beware that you might be given a room "below deck" i.e. below ground level.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Average Hotel - just Ok for a one night stay"
Dont expect any thing great from this hotel. We had booked 3 rooms. The front desk is corteous and they attend immediately if you call them. We got rooms in the ground floor. The path way was stinking. One of the door locks were kind of broken, shower was broken in my room. Some one promptly tried to fix it but it was not working properly. The mats […] of bath room were really dirty. The drain was clogged in the other rooms. We just stayed there for a night. The breakfast was average. The hotel doesnt seem to be well maintained. So overall, just an very average hotel stay. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Lovely hotel, way better than I expected. Excellent food at the restaurant. So close to the less congested east Taj Mahal gate. Recommended.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Hotel Taj Resort Review"
Rooms were clean. Bathrooms were clean as well. But the room size was small.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Good service, good location"
The hotel is close to Eastern Gate of Taj Mahal, as well as Oberoi Amarvilas. We had requested assistance in securing tickets for night viewing of the Taj Mahal, and they were able to work it out for us (tickets need to be booked a day in advance and we were arriving in Agra on the last day of night viewing). On arrival, we weren't happy with our room […] and requested to be transferred, to which we were accommodated. Also needed help in booking train tickets for Jaipur, and Anand (manager), more than readily helped us work this out. Breakfast is mediocre though, but sufficient.

"Taj Resorts Experience in December 2011"
Hotel was a great experience in Agra. It is near to the east gate of the Taj Mahal so you get great view in the morning from its special terrace created. Food was good, affordable and mildly spicy to suit western taste. We had a great rest in the night but when we got up in the morning, we were surprised to no hot water coming from the shower. It was […] december and quite cold so it was a nasty surprise. Repeated calls to reception later, the house keeping person came armed with a spanner etc and tried his best but to no avail. We asked for a bucket and mug and filled the same from the basin and quickly doused ourselves to get ready. But we lost a precious one and half hour and the chance to view the Taj in the early morning light. Quick breakfast later, we were out and on our way. Hotel staff were polite and quite helpful and also expressed regret over the hot water incident. I would certainly recommend this hotel to all! But please check if the hot water and other stuff are working. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Hotel Taj, Agra"
Hotel was conveniently located to the Taj Mahal. Only about 10 mins walk. Rooms were clean and comfortable.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Perfectly adaquet hotel for one night if one is visiting the Taj Mahal. No other reason one would want to stay here. Wi fi did not work.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good location and value for money"
We arrived before check-in time and the rooms allocated to us were not ready but staff were happy to give us other rooms saying they would be happy for us to change if we preferred. As it was the rooms were mostly fine but with no windows in one and being located immediately below reception were noisy with guests checking in at night/early morning. […] Having unpacked already we stayed put. The location is fantastic, within ten minutes walk from the Taj Mahal, the main dome can be seen from the street and hotel rooftop terrace on a clear day. If you want to see the Taj at various times of the day then staying at this hotel, or others in the vicinity, is perfect. Entrance tickets to the Taj can be purchased from the nearby tourist centre at Shiplgram (5 minute walk from hotel) or the hotel is happy to get them for you. The staff were friendly and helpful but not very forthcoming with information about local facilities. We asked about money exchange and were told there was nothing locally, so changed some money at the hotel and did not get a good rate discovering later that there is in fact a Thomas Cook exchange at the Shilpgram centre. Similarly, were quoted excessive sums for transport to nearby sites like Fathepur Sikri and paid much less by organising this ourselves, easily done in the neighbourhood's tourist facilities. Overall, a good base from which to explore Agra and other sites nearby but there are other hotels on the same road to suit various budgets. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
This hotel is located very close to the Taj Mahal on a wide road. But the rooms are very small and the staff is not properly trained. Our check in was not handled professionally. We were first given a room with damp walls with water seepage and had to request for a change. The front office staff could handle the interaction more professionally and pleasantly. […] The bathroom is not fully equipped because we missed a proper towel rod and hooks to hang clothes. Only one soap of poor quality was provided. The shower area had no curtains or separation on the floor so the whole bathroom floor got wet and slippery after a shower. That may be quite dangerous for elderly people like us. The housekeeping staff started vacuum cleaning the passage in front of our room after 11 pm and it was not possible to sleep with the noise. We had to ask them to stop and they did. The food in the restaurant is not bad but although we had asked them to keep packed sandwiches ready at 7 am the next day, when we came in the morning we found that the night staff had not left clear instructions on this so the sandwiches were not ready. The management has to focus on training the staff and setting strict processes. I was not impressed and will not like to stay here again. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Taj Hotel By The Taj Mahal"
Taj Resort location was really good with walking distance to Taj Mahal. Hotel was good, just beware when coming home after 7 pm, the road leading to the hotel are clsed off the 3 nights we were there and was told by the police that we have to pay them if we wanted our driver to dropped us off at the door of our hotel. So we ended up walking to the hotel […] from the top of the street, which was about a 10 minute walk. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Taj Resorts Hotel in Agra"
The hotel was good enough for a one night visit to Agra and very convenient for the Taj Mahal.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Incredible location near Taj Mahal"
This is a modern, comfortable hotel for a decent price. In Agra that is saying something. More than that, it is located steps away from Shilp Gram, the ticket counter for the Taj Mahal, and you could not ask for a better location if your purpose is to visit the famous monuments. We did not try the breakfast but lunch in the restaurant was very good. […] The rooftop pool was still being built when we arrived, but that should be great when it opens.

"They are trying to cut cost!"
The hotel is quite okay. The location is very convenient (very near the counter from where you can buy Taj Mahal tickets) and even has its own parking. The service will have to improve-dont expect too much. They kept turning the AC off, and the rooms became quite stuffy. Had to repeatedly call to turn it on-it is central. Many rooms are in the basement […] and doesn't have any view/window. Rooms are clean and comfortable, but can get stuffy. When we checked in, the bathroom was clean, but they tried to cut cost by putting used shampoo and cream vials, no extra tissue roll. Had to call to get them replaced. They restaurant was good and clean. They breakfast is included and hearty. Overall the experience was good, but they can improve! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"decent for the price"
The hotel is conveniently located near the Taj Mahal gate. We booked two rooms, both were nice and clean, but there was mildew and the TV's didn't work in both, and the AC did not work in one. The management switched us out of the room with the malfunctioning AC with no problems.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Terrible service! Not worth 3.5 stars! I asked hairdryer and adaptor for 3 times in 2 days. They always reply to me "YES", but they never give me what I want. All they want is to earn your money. Their restaurant is bad and expensive. I Strongly Warn You not to go there!Genuine Hotels.com guest review

Great hotel, but manager over sale their hotel room then he change our hotel to same group hotel, but that hotel is far away to Taj Mahal. They change back correct hotel after our contest.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
