I stayed at this hotel for one night as part of a conference visit to New Delhi. We took a visit to Taj and stayed at the Oberoi overnight. The hotel is certainly worth a visit. The view of the Taj, which the hotel boasts can be seen from every room, is spectacular. It was such a shame that the...

We had just one night in Agra, and we really wished we could stay longer at this glorious hotel. From the moment you arrive you are welcomed with genuine warmth, and a great deal of humour.

Had a room with a balcony on the 3rd floor (the higher the floor, the better the view). Could not find the slightest fault with the room.

For me this is the only place to stay in Agra. It is expensive, but visiting the Taj is a major experience and so go for the best. This hotel is truly wonderful.

The Taj Mahal. The hotel is superb, from the warm welcome, the ever smiling and cheerful staff, and the sheer quality of the offering. Outstanding food, difficult if you are serving over five hundred meals a day to a very divers clientele. This was our third stay in the hotel, each stay better than the last.

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
