Good location. Friendly staff. Nice serviceGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Good hotel very close to Taj Mahal. Good resturants . Rooms a bit old though.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Ours was an overnight stop before proceeding to Gwalior. The hotel is close to Taj and was good and comfortable with courtious staff and decent food options. Only two points are a bit negative - the basement rooms where one would tend to feel locked in plus very limited channels on the tv. These they should definitely increased.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Our room was on the first floor - which was below the lobby/ground floor. The sound of the dancer in the lobby was very loud as it echo'd through the floors. Great location to the Taj. Only stayed one night - if longer stay would suggest different floor or possibly different hotel overall.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"fair hotel near the Tal Mahal"
average hotel,breakfast basic but passable,rooms clean,nice view from rooftop bar and restaurant of the top of Taj Mahal we went in January and it wasnt warm enough to eat outside.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Near to Taj"
Overall a good experience. Positives include good email correspondence, free pick up if email in advance and was able to prepare packed breakfast on last day. Good location from Shilpgram where you buy tickets for the Taj and collect shoe covers and water. You can buy the tickets in advance as they are not dated. About a 7min walk from Taj east gate […] and good if you want to come at dawn and avoid some of the crowds. Rooms were good quality and clean - had a 1st floor room. The negatives were breakfast which was mediocre, and also while I rented a car with the hotel to Fatepur Sikri, the driver seemed to be involved in a tour guiding scam with a tuk tuk driver and travel agency, and seemed reluctant to help when we said no. I would advise making this clear at the start of any journey and clarify with hotel management prior to departure. N.B. If you want a twin bedded room you need to book a premium room.

"A Decent Bed and Breakfast"
Taj resorts is a good enough hotel for a short stay.The beds are comfortable to sleep in,there were no bed bugs or rats in the room,the service is good but the bellhop will wait..wait..wait..and keep on waiting until you give him a tip.This is one really bad thing about hotels and the people of northern India in general.Unfortunately most of the monuments […] are located in Northern India and so one has to deal with such kind of people if one needs to visit these monuments.The breakfast is okay,nothing fancy and with not too much of a variety.Guess they need to cater to both the Indian and the foreign tourists.The location is okay,quite near to the Taj.The wash rooms were clean with no clogging.Fresh towels were available.Overall an okay experience.

"Good place for short stay to visit the Taj Mahal"
This was a good base for a single night's stay in Agra. The staff were welcoming, with a welcome drink and fruit basket, and the room was comfortable. It was down in a semi-basement so while we had natural light from a high level window there were no views, but this kept the room quieter and cooler too. The in-room safe was not working when we arrived, […] but as we were stay only one night we didn't wait for it to be fixed for us. Food in the main restaurant was good, as was room service. The rooftop restaurant would be good on a clear night but it was too hazy and smoky to see the Taj on the night we stayed. Location of the hotel is good, in a relatively quiet part of the town fairly close to the eastern gate of the Taj Mahal (though you actually have to walk 5 minutes in the other direction for the ticket counters and a free bus back down to the gate). This means you don't need one of the many many many touting rickshaw drivers on the road outside to get you there! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Very close to taj mahal east entrence"
You can make your own way by foot to the taj mahal its about a ten minute walk. Take a taxi to the Agra fort, that was about a 15 minute journey. As far as the hotel is concerned it was ok and I would stay there again!Genuine Expedia guest review
"Close to the Taj"
Comfortable hotel with a rooftop view of the Taj Mahal. It's located in the 'exclusion zone' close to the Taj (vehicles have to pay to enter, and the road is one-way part of the day) so is quiet. Good food in the restaurant. Central heating, which was great in December - almost too warm! The room was clean. Service was professional and attentive.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Visited in November. Had a ground floor room with a window. Hot water for shower and room was spotlessly clean. Good food at rooftop restaurantGenuine Expedia guest review
nice stay with good restaurant.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
We stayed here one night, just to be close to the Taj Mahal. It was a pleasant 10 minute walk early in the morning since we wanted to get there before the crowds. Because we had been up so early to see the Taj, the staff was kind enough to let us have a late departure for one of our rooms (2 hours) so that my 4 month old grandchild could sleep and be […] fed before leaving. Free internet, which was fast. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Location is the best thing about this hotel."
The Indian food in the restaurant was very good. The staff were very helpful. The bedroom linen was torn and very grey and dirty looking, the worst I've ever seen.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Very good hotel for stay and food"
Stay was good and so was food. Rates were slightly on higher side. We were actually taken to Taj Vilas without any prior information. There was no dedicated business center but we could use the computer and printer at the reception desk. There was no bath-tub or swimming pool either, both of which we missed. Wireless internet was free only for 2 hours […] in total. Overall hotel was good. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Ok. Its very close to the entrance"
Real we are searching this hotel more than 1 hr, no any boards dis-plied on the way of the town.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Nice hotel but bad service"
The hotel room was in excellent condition and also close to Taj. But I have given low rating due to poor service by staff. It took them one hour to prepare and get food at the roof top restaurant. The quality of food was good. Most of the customers at this hotel are foreigners. Another thing that I observed was that the staff was only serving food at […] the restaurant to foreigners whereas we were expected to serve ourselves after the food was placed at our table. Also the breakfast menu is very oily. I recommend this hotel only if you are a foreigner. They were genuinely taking good care of non-Indians. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Nice hotel near the Taj"
We stayed overnight in Agra and the location of this hotel meant that we could walk to the Taj late in the afternoon and again early the following morning. In between we enjoyed dinner and local music on the rooftop which was very pleasant. The rooms were clean and comfortable, the service good and the staff very helpful, their advice was useful and […] local knowledge excellent. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Great hotel for visiting Agra"
The staff were absolutely charming and the food was excellent! I travelled to Jaipur on the next day and when I arrived to my new hotel I noticed that I left my expensive headphones at the Taj Resort Agra! The hotel kindly organised a driver (free of charge!) to drop my headphones to Jaipur on the very next day! That is amazing customer service!Genuine Expedia guest review
"excellent hotel close to Taj Mahal"
Really enjoyed our stay here. First class accommodation and service. Rooftop restauarant is very pleasant. Swimming pool a huge bonus. I recommend this hotel. The hawkers and tuk tuk drivers can be irritating, just say no thank you and keep walking.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Just an early morning stroll from the Taj Mahal a quiet hotel ( except when building renovations are in progress). Rooms are clean and are generally of good condition. Wifi can be restricted at times to public areas. Staff were helpful although a little aloof due mainly to language differences. Restaurant served tasty meals.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great value, location and excellent service"
I had a wonderful time especially with the proximity, service levels and the quality of this boutique hotel. Everyone went an extra mile to ensure our comfort. Tickets for Taj can be bought here. Only small glitch was they could not give me a king size bed even after sending a specail request before check-in and at time of booking. However, must also […] mention that the hotel allowed me to stay 2 hours longer post check-out time without even requesting for it. Great place, I am going back here in two weeks again.

My experience was pretty good. Swimming pool was good and maintain, roof top restaurant has magnificent lighting.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Basement rrom - cold"
We were given a basement room - which was dampish - atleast to us. The front desk clerks hardly spoke English and seemed to not understand our concerns even when explained in Hindi ! The breakfast is horrible - we did not touch it. Overall - this place needs to improve a whole lot. Avoid.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Convenient for Taj Mahal"
Clean. Bland, characterless rooms. Nice pool and rooftop restaurant. Meals disappointing. Manager extremely helpful over booking bus and train for the next part of our visit to India.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Please take you receipts"
There are no premium rooms or executive rooms they are one and the same so please don't pay more go for the cheaper one. If you are 6 feet tall or more, then be ready to sleep on the floor as the hotel just have baby beds. Pillows are stinking and the prices including taxes are a complete rip off.Genuine Expedia guest review
I booked 2 rooms (#202, #203) during my stay in Taj Resorts. Flush tank in room #202 was leaking, and I had to call Reception 4 times to get it cleaned. They were not able to solve the issue at hand, and so the last resort was to get it cleaned time and again. Bfast was totally disappointing. It was cold and the items on the menu were very few. Bed […] sheets, linen, and towels were stained, and needed to be replaced in both room #202 and #203. Rooms were filled with bad odour, and room freshner had to be sprayed to make it more delightful. The size of the room and the facilties provided in this budget could have been better. The overall experience for the stay was disappointing. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Good Hotel in Ideal Location"
The location can't be better with a smiling service given by every staff member. The staff was very helpfull. Only negative point was that rooms are bit small for the family with kids and one should avoid the room in the basement, etc (with no window). The bathroom are also small with the shower area only big enough to stand. Food was of a good quality […] though they should probable add another item in the breakfast buffet.The overall experience was still very good for us. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"overall experience was good"
overall experience was goodGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Hotel Taj is a wonderful hotel. It's incredibly close to the East Gate of the Taj - a walkable distance. The hotel is decorated nicely, with a hip ambiance. Pool on the roof is a nice touch at the end of a day of sightseeing. Wifi, while free, does not work. The staff knows this and is unable to help. My room didn't have a safe, but I was told that […] others did. I was a little put off when the bell hop lingered in my room for a tip (I carried my own bags and could have very easily found my room), but I am an inexperienced traveler so I didn't understand why he remained in my room until I discussed the event later with a friend. Only other dislike were the towels - I felt that the towels belonged in a 2 star hotel. Beds were comfortable. Free breakfast in the morning was a nice buffet spread with a range of Western and Indian cuisines - tasted good. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Horrible - stay away"
We had a very bad experience. The welcome was very cold and we were kept waiting as the class of room we booked was not available . they tried to push us into some crappy rooms which we completely refused to accept . After 2 hours in a lower room they upgraded the room but kept switching off the Air-conditioning and the whole night they kept switching […] off the AC . After I shouted at them it improved somewhat but overall it was a sleepless night. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Looks nice from a distance."
Hotel looks nice from a distance. But when you look closer it's bad. The rooms have AC. But it's impossible to turn of adjust the temperature. The beds are small . Blanket is dirty with holes. Shower keeps dripping. Safe in the room is not working. A lot of noice during the night from the elivator and central AC in room 301.Genuine Expedia guest review
"A pleasant hotel"
We stayed here on 4th April 2013. Was nice but we initially got a room in the basement despite e mailing beforehand to say we wanted a room with a window. The hotel staff were pleasant and quickly gave us another room. The rooftop restaurant served very nice food but it was a bit dark whilst eating. A few more lights required. Our daughter left her […] favourite doll in the room when we left and when we made enquiries with the hotel they quickly posted it to us at our next location so thank you very much. We would stay again. Jo Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
The reception staff went that extra mile to help out. I needed a power plug for my laptop and though it took them some time, they found it for me. They also gave some good advise about visiting the Taj Mahal and it was easy to buy tickets from them.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Ideal location for visiting the Taj Mahal"
Great location easy walk or rickshaw ride to the Taj. The website doesn't make much mention of the roof top pool and restaurant a great surprise we made good use of both.! ExcellentGenuine Expedia guest review
Great looking hotel with its colourful paintings on the wall and ceilings. Feels like you are staying in a Taj back in yesteryear. Unfortunately the pool was out of action which was disappointing as it was 39 degreesGenuine Expedia guest review
"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

"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.

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

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
