“Salty water”
Reviewed 25 April 2012

Some staff is quite grumpy.
The lobby did give me false hope about the rooms in terms of cleaniness. The doors are quite difficult to close and lock.
There is hot water but the water lines come out in different directions so I couldn't catch them...
The bucket is useful!

The best part is, the rooftop has a perfect view of Taj Mahal, though the smog does not give you a very clear view.

Basic accommodation but generally clean and OK. Don't bother paying for a Taj view. The view is good but not as good as the rooftop restaurant. If you're sensible you'll go to the Taj for 6am - so you won't see the view before as it'll be dark - and in the evening and/or lunch you'll be on the rooftop restaurant balcony where the view is not obstructed by the window.

Food is not the best we had in India but the location is great for the Taj. Near the shopping emporiums on Taj Road - ask to go to Mugal Bazaar and wander from there. There's one directly across the street that looks small from the outside but is an aladdin's cave inside. By asking for a shop directly you won't have to ask the hotel or the tuk-tuk driver and therefore save the commission.

Helpful staff, free wifi and computer use and though you have to check out by 10am, staff will watch your luggage until you need to go. Overall OK for the price.

Most inferior quality hotel I had ever stayed in my life. Water service to the bathroom & wash basin taps is extremely salty, that in the morning you would not able to brush your teeth. For a jug of drinking water (which is from their RO device) you have to wait more than an hour. Small room, you will not be able to charge your’s mobile phone as there are only two elec. Sockets, engaged for AC & TV in the room. The roof top restaurant may make you more starving, as it takes plenty of times to make you happy. Now it’s your choice………..
