we arrived to a cold and foggy time in INDAI...SInce INDIA is a sub tropical climate and they have limited funds they usually don't spend money to install heat into homes and hotels etc, that would barely be used 6 weeks per year...Understood...but coming from USA where we are used to having heat,,,well it was difficult, eventually we bought our own room heaters...the hotel was great, the food ok, staff was helpful, we only stayed one night in time to see TAJ and other sites in the cold fog...ever look at a white building when it if foggy outside...guess what? you can't see it! laughing.

This is place is a great budget hotel. The staff are extremely helpful, honest and kind. The price is right, the garden is very impressive and the location is a close autorickshaw ride to either Agra train station. It is hard to find an easygoing, quiet place in India. This is one.

Initially upon check in we were given a regular room with no air con and an entry door which would not lock from the inside. When we inquired about the door lock we were told that all the rooms were the same, with a door which would not lock from the inside. So, I checked my booking reservation and found I reserved a room with air con, I presented this information to the agent, a conference ensued with 5 employees, and we were moved to a room on the second floor which had air con and a door which locked properly. Check in was not helpful with directions, did no have a map of the city, floor of the room was dirty, there was plenty of hot water, and the wifi was inconsistent, typical for India I guess. I am sure you could do worse but I am also sure you could do better.

We happened to arrive on the coldest night of the year, just over freezing. There were no heaters and we went to bed fully clothed. The rooms felt like caves, a single exposed light bulb and filthy walls casting a pall that was not mitigated by the sparse bathroom facilities. Don't expect towels or toilet paper, frequently a scarce commodity in India. The best feature of the hotel is the courtyard which is charming and conducive to mingling. You really get what you pay for with this one. We only stayed one night, even though we were booked for two. Spend a few more dollars and upgrade.

We booked a room here after reading a good review on lonely planet, however our experience was very different. The staff were unhelpful and always looking at their phones while talking to you. We sometimes sat in the restaurant for half an hour before anybody approached us, and there were empty bottles of water lying around the place. The location wasn't so great either, since you couldn't walk anywhere. The only time the staff smiled at us and asked if our stay was ok was while paying at check-out. The room was ok, but there were holes in the bedsheets and the towels provided were extremely dirty so we used our own. Wouldn't recommend it to anyone.

Stayed in an upstairs room which was simple enough. Nice bed, though hot water took a while but that didnt bother us. Only the very loud road at night. Lovely courtyard area with nice lights at night. Though it was raining so we didnt get to sit out in it. Great food at breakfast and dinner. Simple, cheap but tasty! Staff also very nice and place was washed down daily

Sønnen i huset ga meget god service / hjelp til booking av buss- og togbilletter. Jeg ble forsøkt lurt hos falske, offisielle turistkontorer i Delhi. Derfor var det ekstra deilig å få god hjelp og måten han ga service på burde etterfølges av øvrige på hotellet. Hotellet har et slags atrium - er bygd rundt en liten hage med kafestoler i plast. Det er bra. Rommet hadde også vært fint, var det ikke for at stikkontakter ikke virket, dusjen lakk, dusjhodet falt av, vanntrykket var for dårlig og det ikke gikk an å trekke ned i toalettet. Virker som om hele stedet trenger kraftig vedlikehold, potensialet til å bli et riktig godt overnattingssted (igjen) er absolutt tilstede. Det ligger en god, indisk restaurant 200 meter unna. Lett å få drosje/tuk-tuk. Kjedelig rundt hotellet, men det er det mange steder i Agra. Dersom jeg kunne få et rom hvor fasilitetene fungerte, kunne jeg godt bo der igjen.

Abbiamo soggiornato quì per due notti.. avevo prenotato una camera economica che si trovava a piano terra..purtroppo la stanza peò puzzava di chiuso e non era proprio pulitissima così ho chiesto di prenderne un'altra (pagando naturalmente qualcosa in più) mi è stata data una stanza all'ultimo piano. Veramente bella spaziosa, pulita e confortevole. l'hotel ha un bel chiostro e spesso la sera abbiamo mangiato in hotel. Consigliato ma non prenotate camere economiche

"Great place with one bad experience"
04/24/15 WanderInTandem New York City, New York
We enjoyed our stay at this place: the restaurant in the courtyard was delicious, well priced, and cute for couples. Shout out to the tea, the masala chai tea is to die for and is great after a long day of sight-seeing. You're pretty close to the Taj here, tuk tuks are available right outside, but don't let the hotel talk you into using their guy, as he is double the price. Overall, the pricing was on point for us, a couple traveling on a budget, and the rooms were actually quite spacious and clean. So, for the bad experience. On the night we arrived there, some sort of parade/festival was going on, perhaps for the full moon? It was pretty loud but that wasn't the problem: at around 11:45PM there was a LOUD crash on our door, not a knock. It really startled us, and if it weren't for the bolt lock, we would have really felt unsafe. Then 5 minutes later someone called our room asking if we needed a bed cover, we said no, and made it very clear that we felt uncomfortable with being asked for something so late. Then again we had someone knock on our door and shout about the bed cover. So at this point we called reception and pretty much freaked out on them. At no point did we open the door, that would have been stupid, and in any place on your travels never open the door after a certain hour. The next morning we gave them a piece of our mind, and the hotel manager tried to assure us it was just kids playing around. We know it wasn't as it was too loud for it to be kids. So, you might be wondering why we're giving them 3 stars: after we told the hotel manager what happened, he was extremely attentive and concerned for us, checking up on us whenever we ate at the restaurant. Plus, the bolt lock really made us feel safe. In a nutshell, we would stay here again and recommend it to friends. But always remember it IS India, never let your guard down.

"Why not?"
04/11/15 Flora O Varkala, India
What lovely people. Everyone says "don't stay in Agra because it's awful except for the Taj, stay in Fatehpur Sikri or go all the way 4 hours on a train from Delhi to see it" but those people are wrong. You don't want to limit yourself to an hour at the Taj. You want to be able to see it from all angles and in all different lights and put the silly shoe covers on your head and take photos with white people even if you're white just because that's what all the Indian people want to do, so, as they all say to everything at the Tourist Rest House, "Why Not?" -- so you need somewhere to stay, and you should stay here. I was being a pathetic girl saying goodbye to my boyfriend for a long time when I was staying here and I cried my eyes out all morning. The people who worked there could not have been nicer and more respectfully comforting, helping us sort out our travel plans and continually bringing out the veg club sandwiches my friend kept ordering! Rooms are good, bathrooms are fine (which is the best they come in India!) but really it's the nice little courtyard restaurant and the people who make this place worth staying at.

04/01/15 Cornelia A Vienna, Wien, Austria
We stayed at Tourists Rest House for two nights. We had a room on the first floor. The room was basic but clean. The mattresses were a little bit thin but ok. The bathroom was also ok but could have been a little bit cleaner. Anyway it is very good value for money. Food is also average but reasonably priced. It is nice sitting in the courtyard for dinner. Free Wifi is available. We always had a good connection.

"A good hotel...but different."
03/29/15 Dibyendu1986 Mangalore, India
location is not good. no good restaurants. from outside hotel looks a very small personal house. but if u go inside it has a different story. awesome rooms ...very spacious rooms and toilets. vintage look furniture , lights. Staffs are friendly. Hot water available.It has a restaurant...whose menu was very limited and food was average. Taj Mahal n other tourist spots were nearby. they also arrange cab but very expensive and not well maintained. Infact this is the story of all cabs available in Agra. Though Agra is a favourite tourist destination but the facilities are not at all tourists friendly.

Rooms are basic but clean, restaurant is cheap and good for breakfast. When my girlfriend was ill they were extremely helpful and helped us get her to a dr and helped us to get the medication from the chemist. Also recommend a fantastic tuc tuc driver for us who took us everywhere we wanted to go and was really reliable

"Facilities OK, services not so much"
03/26/15 Dino M Manchester, United Kingdom
So, thi s place has a great garden area, and the linnen was clean, however the services wernt that great. Only boiling hot water was available, not great for a shower in 40 degrees heat. then there was no water at all one morning. also the electric cuts out regularly, not great again cos then your fan goes- and your boiling again. The gent on reception is helpful enough but Rashid the tuck tuck driver tries to rip you off at every turn. he will ask 800 to take you to Sikandra, we managed to get it for 350! return also he charges 80 to get to the Taj, im sure it should have been 60. The naan i had with dinner there was the worst Ive had in India, rubber! Looked good on arrival, but im sure you can get better for 600 rupee a night Average for indian budget room, but by western standards, very poor

"Neat place with good Location."
03/21/15 LyonTXS Colorado City, Texas
stayed in the hotel in the middle of march, the rooms are large cozy and neat. The Garden which is a main attraction is nicely maintained and looks so beautiful in the evening with lights and music with fragrance. The hotel has good access to Taj mahal and Agra fort which we like the best. you can take auto anytime in front of the hotel but negotiate the price. The hotel also has travel agency which is quite good as we used for fatehpur and Mathura sightseeing. If you are coming with your family and friends this is a best place to stay and meet other travellers.. We recommend..

03/14/15 AFCwest
Slight mix up over booking to start with, quickly smoothed over and sorted out, the 2 owners and most of the other staff were absolutely brilliant (other than the guy who works on reception who is an absolute idiot). Very good value for money, nice food, everything very clean and well kept, good position close to all the main attractions aswell as a 2 minuet walk from a high street with everything you need, good communal area with plants and trees, made to feel right at home! Deffinatly recommend for travelers and would most defiantly stay again if in the area! Don't worry chicken curry!

Stayed here 2 nights, our room was basic but clean. There is a nice quiet courtyard to eat and relax in. The staff are great very helpful with tips for our stay over Holi and let us use the facilities for hours after we checked out for no extra charge. Would recommend it.
