Nothing bad can be said about this hotel. Like a lot of people, we only stayed in Agra one night but we delayed our departure as long as possible, just to enjoy this hotel (specially the pool). The staff was so lovely from the moment we arrived and even upgraded us to a room with a terrace after I asked....

Dear Guest, Thank you for taking the time to share your experience on Trip Advisor.

What an outstanding property. Views of the Taj from every room although I don't understand why there are grids on the windows that interfere with it. Holy cow the terraced pool is lovely. Don't order a special cooked breakfast because you will never get it. Just stick with the buffet.

We stayed at the Oberoi last week for a night in Agra. Due to the off-season, the hotel was nearly empty and we were upgraded to a nicer room.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Taj Mahal is extraordinary as much for what it is as how it has escaped the banality of cliché. For 350 years, this monument evokes a sense of wonder. Only by being there can you witness its true majesty, its symmetry, its setting and the delicacy of its carved marble inlaid with precious stones. Now just suppose you were to overlook it from your hotel room? The Oberoi Amarvilas is 600 metres from this tribute to love. The lavish interiors and elaborate gardens add to the serenity of the scene. The guestrooms are palatial: all have magical views and are luxuriously furnished with traditional fabrics, white marble, hand-crafted ornaments and every modern amenity. There is a luxury spa offering a range of therapies, a swimming pool where snacks and drinks are served; an ornamented ballroom and fine restaurants to suit the international palate. But the lobby lounge is a feast for the eye designed, as it was, around that glorious view of the Taj Mahal. ... more   less
