Radisson Blu Agra Taj East Gate
Ranked #9 of 142 Hotels in Agra
Reviewed 19 February 2012

This less than a year old hotel is gorgeous-probably the best Radisson I've ever stayed in. There's a beautiful, new lobby and nice rooms with great bathrooms, hardwood floors, mini bar, flat screen TV, etc. Nice breakfast selection in the AM (both Indian and Western food). Ate at the bar a few nights-food was decent although food and drinks were a little pricey (took advantage of happy hour and food deals).
One the second floor (off the gym), there's a little sunporch (opposite the pool deck) we were able to take our computers, a bottle of beer (they let us drink from outside the hotel) and sit in the sun with our wi-fi (YES, free wi-fi!)
It seemed as though everywhere we turned, there was another smiling face from an employee willing to help (it was almost unnerving-I mean they were everywhere!!)
There is also a small amount of gift shops on site-the one with the books, rings, etc (toward the back) that the man runs will deal with really good prices (nice quality rings!)
The Taj is literally 3 or so blocks away-totally walking if you're up for being heckled the whole way there for rickshaw rides, to buy stuff, etc. Another hint-there's a little market area in the back of the Taj parking lot with a restaurant (beer bar) that sells huge Kingfishers for 4 USD (to bring back to hotel-if that, like me, is your thing)
There's also a McD's a few blocks in the opposite direction if you're into that kind of thing instead:)

This is a very nice hotel very close to the entrance to the Taj Mahal. It is clean and service is very good. Beds are quite comfortable. Excellent buffet breakfast. We were on a tour so I do not know the price but it is a very nice accomodation.

Almost new hotel with modernistic style gives a refreshing contrast to the wonderful historical backdrop. Top notch amenities and good service provided. There is a great varied buffet for casual lunch or dinner. Guest rooms are very spacious and clean , with all the modern amenities including large flat screen TVs.

My friend and I expected a generic, bland hotel -- but while this hotel certainly feels like part of the chain it represents, the warm and enthusiastic staff help imbue this hotel with a distinctive personality. The rooms offer great value for money (I got a lot more luxury than I was expecting for ~5,000 rupees/night), and it is a mere 20 minute walk from the Taj (but the stretch of road it is on is relatively secluded -- you won't feel like you're being inundated by people when you step out). The food in the restaurant is very good (in particular, I recommend the pasta options), but definitely over-priced (even by hotel standards). I would definitely stay here again on another Agra-visit -- hopefully the place will have a gym by then!

This hotel is excellently located, just down the road from the eastern side of the Taj Mahal. It is clearly newly built, with gleaming (possibly too shiny) floors in the lobby and smart looking rooms. They had a good buffet spread for the breakfast.

It is very good value for the quality of accommodation.

However, the dinner was a ridculous rip off, and was by far the most expensive meal I had in India! Avoid that if you can. I suppose they know they can get away with charging anything given the international clientele and the shocking alternatives outside in the city.

If anything, the luxury was a shocking change from the chaos and clutter of Agra, and you sometimes feel a bit guilty knowing the poverty that exists outside.

Be sure to ensure your driver is taken good care of in the hotel's own dormitory. Or driver told us he wasn't given any blankets ( in mid winter!!)

Overall, would recommend for comfort and value.
