Misleading Reviews, Do Not Stay Here
The hotel is in extremely poor condition and I would highly recommend not staying here. There are many other options just up the street that have to be a better choice. There was a pile of loose bricks in the stairway leading to my room, the walls in my room had suffered repeated water damage and were not repaired (the sheet rock was just plastered over and unpainted), the sink leaked constantly, the electricity to my room was controlled by a switch outside my door in the public hallway, and the room was overall unclean and in poor condition. I booked 2 nights and left after 1. I can only assume that the 4 and 5 star reviews are fake because this is in no way a "3-star" hotel and neither the rooms or the staff were the quality of a 3-star, or even 2-star, hotel.

Excellent hotel
My family stayed for 1 night here and 1st time in Agra. Easy reaches from railway station. Very convenient to city centre and we found a great restaurant with delicious Indian food. Highly recommend.

View of Taj Mahal from the Hotel Rooftop
Room condition 5/10. Location 10/10. If you are a backpacker, the Taj Mahal booking office is just 100m away. After that there is a shuttle bus that takes you to the East Gate. This guesthouse is quite old and needs a makeover, but everyone who goes to Agra will not stay in the room. The only time they get back into the room is to sleep. The Taj Mahal view from the rooftop is nice.
