The Gateway Hotel, Agra
Ranked #7 of 143 Hotels in Agra
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 19 March 2012

This hotel has gone thru different avatars and is now a Gateway property of Taj Group. The age reflects but the renovations have kept pace. Rooms are OK...no great views. Better to get the pool view than the Taj View where you get nothing but the street view. Higher floors may be offering some view of Taj but I was stuck on 2nd floor.
Rooms amenities - ok. for some reason rooms even in same category are of different sizes...get a larger room.
food - as per Taj standards. indian food is passable rest is OK.
Staff - courteous and helping...though the front desk could be more helping in selecting the right rooms.

Room Tip: get a larger room on a higher floor

We stayed at the Gateway for 2 night during our three week India trip. Staff couldn't do enough for us, room was spotlessly cleaned twice a day and all of the hotel's facilites were well maintained.
Excellent location for visiting the Taj Mahal, Agra Fort etc and walking distance to several very good restaurants.
Thoroughly recommended.

Of all the hotels on our 5 day tour of the golden triangle this was the one I was least looking forward too. However it was much nicer than I expected. We were greeted with a traditional welcome & drinks whilst we were checked in. The room was a good size with a view of the taj mahal. Pool area is nice and we had a nice meal in the resturant. Some traffic noise but nit enough to keep you awake and not far from taj.

We stayed here for one night in order to see the Taj Mahal and so location was key to us. The hotel was nice, clean and check in was relatively efficient (for India). The room was nice and comfortable and the food in the hotel was very good.

It felt like a good business hotel rather than a holiday place so we were pleased to only be there one night and move on.

We passed several places on the drive to the Taj that were a) more appealing to look at from the outside and b) a lot closer to the Taj Mahal.
