"Hotel of good value but excellent staff"
The hotel is good, clean, and centrally located. I only ate their Indian breakfast, but it was fantastic. Very well seasoned. What really made the hotel great was the staff. They had some laundry done in a rush and allowed us to stay past check out time at no charge.

"Great location!"
Excellent location to walk to Taj Mahal!! The personnel was very kind with me. Beds not so clean as one of them had some lint and the strainer of the shower area was not clean. The rest was ok. The hotel is near a construction and to get it you have to go through a little earth road. The hotel is much better above the standard of the rest of buildings of the town.

"Clean but weird entrance - Internet not good"
This hotels is located a walking distance to the Taj Mahal. The neighborhood is not the best. Its biggest problem is the unwelcoming entrance. We had to walk from the street to the main entrance of the hotel on a unpaved isle, not too pleasant. We had to carry our luggage from the car to the lobby. The Lobby looks like everything but a lobby, not a good ambiance. The staff does its best with what they are given. Breakfast is not included which is fine, but we had to go to another sister hotel that has a restaurant. It is like a block away but crossing a road where you have to pray for your life :)) it is not easy to deal with. Something very important is the cleanliness of the property, my wife and I were very please with it. The biggest disappointing is the internet. It did not work during the two days that I stayed in there, not even in the lobby. We were told that the routed was reset twice and basically nothing else could be done. We were offer to go to the lobby to have a better connection, but not even there. Very upsetting. We heard other guest complaining about the same thing.

"American Couple"
I know I rated this very high, but it is deserving. The room was great/comfortable (most importantly quite!) and the staff was very friendly and accommodating (thanks guys!). The only reason I could imagine anyone has issue with this hotel is because they haven't been to the rest of India (if you have, then you would know this place is great for the price). The only major drawback this hotel has is the way in which you have to get there. It is down a shady dirt path, that once again, if you are not used to India, may concern you about walking down (especially at night). Really though, nothing to worry about and the fact that it is a few buildings off of the main road gives you some much deserved/needed silence (relative of course). The old maya across the street has decent food and good coffee. **Finally, I would highly recommend AK travel agency which is just a few doors down from the hotel. Fun owner that is down to hang out and best price I could find for hiring a car to Delhi airport.**

"Too short a stay"
It was the last night of a 2-week journey across India. And it was probably the best hotel we stayed in for the whole trip. The bed was certainly the most comfortable, the marble (everywhere) was beautiful, and the room felt modern, clean and very comfortable. It really did feel like we were at a retreat/resort... even if only for one night. It was not straightforward to find... their entry walkway was under construction in between two half-built building... but once you get inside, it is a great spot.

"Great little hotel!"
It is a pretty little hotel with few rooms. The rooms are big & clean, staff very attentive. The drawbacks are no restaurant on premises( although the restaurant at sister hotel maya across the street is extremely good - specially if you go to the rooftop) and the access to ray of maya is not good. Manager told us that they were in process of building the path, but for now, it is a dirt passage.

"Our one night stay in Agra"
I think we stayed in an overflow hotel. The room was very nice except we had one king size instead of two singles. The entrance, down the side, in the dark, on an unpaved, narrow, rocky path was horrible. I could see no excuse for such a precarious entrance. We had to eat across the street and paid for the breakfast which I thought was included. The shower was complicated, almost needed an engineeer to figure it out, but nice, hot water and an an enclosure.

Nice stay at this hotel very close to the Taj Mahal. The room was clean though a little small. I paid extra for the taj view but you can only see it from far and it is hidden by the building in construction in front of it... not worth the extra money for the view

"15 minute walk to the Taj"
Once inside the building... very nice and very air-conditioned. There are views of the Taj from the balconies along with monkeys (keep your doors bolted). There are not a lot of services in this part of town. The hotel owns a restaurant that has good food, but accross the street. There is a beer and wine shop about a Km from the hotel (take a 1$ Tuk Tuk for return).

"Great value hotel"
Really pleasant surprise for the price and location (15 minute walk to the Taj and perfect for a sunrise visit). Was set a little way off the main road along a short dirt path but this was enough to shield you from the traffic noise. Really nice comfortable bright room, good bathroom with hot water on demand and tea making facilities in the room. Wifi also worked really well. Really nice staff that were thankfully there to check us in at 4am. Excellent laundry service - best job we have had in our three months in India! Breakfast not available on site though but at there sister hotel across the road, although we went for other options to get a rooftop view of the Taj. Would definitely recommend.

Close to Taj, clean room, cheap. Only downside is the dirt path you have to walk down to get to hotel and they serve no food. Better to stay in hotel in the Taj district itself where your hotel will have food and a rooftop bar or restaurant where you can see it.

location very close to west gate of Taj Mahal, however it is on the side of very noisy street and the side lane getting to front of the hotel is unpaved and uneven. due to its occasionally black out, we had to carry a headlamp in order to get to the sister restaurant on the other side of the street. for a short stay like ours, it served the purpose and the money is of good value!

"Good value and location!"
Stayed two nights in Agra to see Taj and Red Fort. Near by the busy main street but the hotel is tucked away from the front street so we did not hear the honkings. A heater was provided which is needed in December. The hot water was not working very well the first night but the staff fixed it quickly after we mentioned to them. We ate at their main hotel restaurant across the street where has good breakfast. The front desk staff was very helpful on giving us the train information. Good value and location. Walking distance to Taj is a plus.

This hotel is opposite the Maya Hotel and down a side alley. Quiet as it is back off the main street, and we felt secure. The room is reasonably clean and you can eat at the Maya across the road, the food was great there. Water available from staff for 25 rupees, and they were also helpful with local tourist advice. I would stay again if back in Agra.

"Perfect location at Ray of Maya"
We stayed at the Ray of Maya Hotel in October 2014. The hotel is off the main road and in a narrow unsealed and very rough lane opposite the Maya Hotel, which is owned by the same management. The hotel is very new and very well appointed for a 2.5/3.0 star establishment. Check-in was quick and efficient. The "Taj View" room we paid extra for was non-existent as a building now stands between the Taj and the hotel - no refund was given . The west gate of the Taj Mahal is 10 minutes walk away. Good restaurants are within 10 mins walk or 3 mins auto ride. Avoid being ripped off at the Pinch of Spice restaurant down the road - 30% to 35% tax+service charges added on to the advertised menu prices.

"Nice Budget Hotel"
During Diwali 2014, we had a trip to Delhi, Agra and Jaipur. All hotels were booked thru hotels.com. This property we choose as it was within budget and good review. Hotel located very near to Taj itself. It's a new hotel, management was welcoming, rooms were neat and clean and toilets are built in mind for foreign tourists and thus ok though toilet equipment are not well maintained say the shower unit. Hotel is located in a narrow lane and your car need to leave at main road and you need to carry your luggage inside and the road is damaged due to some construction while we visited , this was the only discomfort. Over all a nice place to chill your bones after a long trip at the Taj.

"Convenient for Taj Mahal but beware of extras."
The hotel is set back from the road down a small alley which is quite difficult to negotiate in the dark. However the room was very pleasant and comfortable. The shower cubicle in the bathroom needed updating. Meals served in the sister hotel across the road but found the food somewhat bland. Several services offered, including transport for sightseeing either by tuktuk or a car for longer journeys. We found that both of these were convenient but more expensive than other outlets. Certainly the cost of the taxi should have provided a better quality, more modern car and we did not like being taken to retail outlets of their choice in order to bump up the profit.

"Excellent. Quiet and clean"
We were in Agra to see the Taj, fort and Fatephur Sikri (standard), so booked in for 2 nights here. It's run by the same people as the Maya Hotel, and most taxi drivers know that one rather than this one, but the Ray of Maya is just over the road and down a little alleyway so I'd just say Maya Hotel and get the staff there to direct you to the Ray. I don't know what the rooms in the Maya Hotel are like, but given that it's on the main road itself I would hazard a guess that they'll be noisier than the Ray of Maya. We couldn't hear any traffic in the Ray of Maya, had no nasty fumes, and the room was spotless. It felt like a proper haven. The staff were extremely helpful - directing us to various interesting places. (Of course) they suggested that we eat in their restaurant (at the Maya), which was ok; the food was hot and seemed fresh, but a little bland. Probably touristified given that there are so many of us in this area! Anyway, I didn't hold it against them - it was helpful to have a restaurant so near; we arrived late so couldn't be bothered to explore for a different place. Overall, I would definitely stay at the Ray of Maya again if I came back to Agra.

"Nice Room , But not like a hotel"
The Stay in Agra at this hotel with Family was good experience. We had an overnight so we looked at the Hotel Room & Cleanliness rather than facilities. Pointers:- 1. Rooms are extremely Clean , bathroom is excellent too. 2. There is no lift facility and room is on Ground , Ist floor & Second floor too 3. You will never be able to find the entry to the hotel unless guided by authorities of Hotel Ray Maya which is located opposite side of the road 4. Car parking is an issue , though hotel authorities try and provide some space (On Road) 5. Hotel does not have kitchen service (Outside hotel you can get several eateries - Best one is Pinch of Spice which is 5 mins away from the hotel). Hotel food of Ray Maya was not great. 6. Hotel staff are proactive and help you in luggage carrying , room food availability from Ray Maya etc. All in all if you are just looking for an excellent room and Good bathroom this place is good , There is nothing like a hotel concept with this property. I would rather call it a Service Apt.

"GOOD 3 stars hotel nice and clean with wifi"
The most important for me was CLEAN room, this was perfectly clean, room and bathroom, very nice shower, spa quality. Also excellent WiFi and the room was my bubble to scape from the noisy street and crazy full on Agra. The LOCATION IS FANTASTIC, close to Taj Mahal, about 5 minutes walk, but the hotel is in some kind of alley, no in the main street, so if you are looking for it you have to find the Maya hotel first, on the main street. Is the same company, but Ray of Maya is the new hotel with nice rooms, but for eating just go to Maya hotel, good food and service. I think is good not to be in the main road actually, because of the noise of the street. Anyway, I want to recommend this hotel, because for us was a good experience, difficult to find because we arrive at 3am without the phone number of the hotel, but the staff is ok if you need a coca cola or a taxi to delhi or whatever. EXcellent option for visit the Taj Mahal and Agra Fort, there is no much else to see in Agra! cheers from Chile!
