"Lovely at check in, but disaster at check out"
Our stay started with perfect check in and lovely reception. The room are nice and rooftop restaurant serves not amazing food but good service and great ambient. The Taj Mahal could be seen on the rooftop balcony. Hotel is just 10 mins walk (or 3 mins by Tuk Tuk) to the East gate of Taj Mahal, so very convenient for sightseeing, shopping and for food. HOWEVER, our stay ended with a disaster, we booked in advance a taxi transfer to the train station in the morning, the check out was very slow, we reminded the staff that the taxi is already 15 mins late, but he was like "no big deal", and was not doing much to help, talking on the phone with someone joking and laughing. Finally, our taxi was 30 mins, and we are just in time to board the train (the tickets are with us, if we are late, our another 2 friends would not able to catch the the train too).

"Good hotel,great location for visiting Taj Mahal."
Great location for a visit to the Taj Mahal which is,of course,the primary interest in Agra.Hotel itself proved to be very comfortable and the staff were extremely pleasant and helpful.I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this hotel as I thought it offered excellent value for money.

This was a very calm hotel in a busy area near the East Gate of the Taj Mahal. The staff were friendly. We did not like our windowless room. The breakfast buffet was tasty. The roof top was the best!

We had one night in this hotel and it was just OK, this wasn't long enough to give a thorough review but the rooms were clean although being in the basement was not to my liking. I'm sure the higher floor are more appealing.

"Great Location"
This hotel is in a great spot within walking distance to the Taj Mahal. The roof top restaurant was a nice place to have an afternoon rest. We paid for a Premium room and requested a room with a window after reading other reviews. Our room was behind reception. It was very noisy with the welcoming music going to late at night and the kitchen starting early in the morning. We had an issue on checking out were they tried to tell me the room wasn't paid for and I had to get on my laptop and show them the credit card statement. This was even after having given them the expedia printed confirmation.

"Good hotel, close to Taj Mahal, Fantastic staff"
Not a bad stay at all! The Hotel Taj Resort is perfectly located near the East gate of the Taj Mahal. We got up early in the morning to visit the Taj at sunrise, and it was literally a 2 minute walk to the ticket office (left turn out of the hotel gate) and then a 5 minute walk to the Taj (right turn out of the hotel gate). Perfect location! The rooftop terrace gives a great view of the Taj. The room was "ok". We were in a room in the basement, which was a little damp - so if you have the chance, get a room that is above ground! Otherwise, beds were comfortable enough. The food in the restaurant was really good. We ordered Indian food and it was very well done. All the food was "western stomach safe", and though I would have liked it a bit spicier, it was tasty none the less. Finally, the staff were amazing. They were very attentive to us, and you could see that everyone wanted to make sure you had a good time at their hotel. You could sense the level of pride they had in the way they took care of all their guests. Good hotel...

Clean and comfortable hotel with a rooftop restaurant and swimming pool. Ideal area to pass a couple of hours in after sightseeing. We had a meal outside one evening and a meal in the inside restaurant another night. Food delicious and beer served also. Would recommend hotel to everyone. Only slight drawback- water not always as hot as I would have liked- but shower powerful. Internet included in our package which was very good.

Everything in working order except the TV which we could not switch on. We stayed only for the night so it did not bother us much. There room was stinking a bit probably due to the moisture but as soon as we switched on the air con the smell disapperaed. The hotel has a good view of the Taj Mahal from the roof top and a small swimming pool which we could not enjoy due to our very short stay. It is a value for money hotel

This hotel is 4-5 years old. Staff are helpful and attentive. Choose a room on the 3rd or 4th floor. These are actually what would usually be called the 1st and 2nd, or 2nd and 3rd floors, the only ones above ground. Other rooms are in the basement, no windows.

Though i didn't have had much time with me to spend in the hotel, our short stay with my family was quite comfortable and relaxing. After a hectic travel from Delhi airport, and reaching here by at around 11 pm, all i needed was a good food and rest for making myself fresh enough for a visit to taj early next morning. The midnight menu was just great and was also the morning breakfast buffet. Clean swimming pool and a view of Taj from the roof made this a great stay...

It was a great experience for us to stay in this hotel. We were there for a 2 day visit to Taj and had great fun there. Rooms are very good; hotel staff are courteous. Best part, its just a hop away from TajMahal east gate. Just try to avoid staying in the level 1 rooms, they hardly get any mobile oe hotel WiFi signals.

"Taj confusion"
Having booked and paid through expedia we arrived to find our booking not received at hotel . We were one of several guests without rooms who had arrived at a similar time. The hotel took us to a sister hotel nearby but within easy walking distance and not with a pool . These 2 criteria were ones that we had used to select a hotel as it's low 40 degree Celsius heat at time of stay so a cool off after a day at the sites was our aim. The staff however were accomodating at the sister hotel Taj villas and I did manage to get them to ferry our group of 4 to the pool at our original hotel for the swims but not quite the same.

"Perfect hotel in Raj"
Form N.A standard, i would say that this hotel hotel is a 4 star category. We stayed in the hotel 3 nights in 2 separate occasion. That being said, this hotel is everything we expected from an hotel in our visit to Rajasthan. It was previously a real palace and they kept a lot of the original flavor. But we hare in 2014 and they renovated the hotel to make it actual with a bit of luxury. The garden and the pool are speechless and we felt really comfortable. The staff and the welcome were also really great. On our way back to Delhi we had to stop in Jaipur and were really happy to stop back at the Jai Mahal.

"Great location to visit Taj, Well maintained"
We stayed overnight and visited the Taj Mahal next day morning. The only problem was getting to the hotel. I guess, not many people travel to the east gate of Taj Mahal. So, many did not know the route. But, it is right up the road from the barricades before the east gate of Taj Mahal. The room was clean and well maintained. Dinner downstairs was good. Breakfast was not that good though. The staff were helpful giving us tips about the visit to Taj Mahal.

Walking distance from City Center, the Taj Mahal as well as the Taj Nature walk, and kalakriti Kendra, the Hotel provided excellent opportunity to explore the old town on foot. At the same time, it was a healthy distance from the overly crowded central Bazaars, offering safety and a serene calm that was great to have. The Hotel staff was very friendly and willing to accomodate our requests very nicely. The breakfast spread was reasonably diverse and really had us packed well for the days to follow (I am more of a "great breakfast and then a grand walk" traveller)
