Positive Reviews

There are Taj Mahal views from appealing rooms

Rooms are clean, modern in design and attractive. Some rooms have views of the Taj Mahal itself but guests caution that these are few and far between and that if this is a requirement, it needs to be specified quite clearly when making the booking.

Wonderful staff

Members of staff are super-friendly and very efficient. They are always smiling and ready to assist guests with their queries.

A brilliant breakfast spread

The quality of food at breakfast is impressive. So is the catering staff’s ability to cater for special dietary needs quickly and without blinking an eye.

Negative Reviews

The sky-high cost of hotel dining

Guests are astounded at the high prices charged for food and drink in the hotel. The higher guests go in the building, the more expensive everything becomes. Consequently, prices reach their peak in the rooftop bar and restaurant. Even those guests with money to burn note these red-hot prices and start looking for alternatives nearby.

The reality is disappointing

In such an inspiring setting and one that guests will remember for many years to come, there is some surprise that this potential paradise is marred by a lack of heating in the pool and a hotel facade that has seen better days. Later and as they gaze at the Taj Mahal and starry night sky from the rooftop restaurant, guests wonder if one too many stars might have been allocated to the hotel’s rating.
