Hotel Sidhartha
Ranked #31 of 142 Hotels in Agra
Reviewed 22 April 2012

If you've done a fair bit of budget traveling around India before getting to Agra you will be happy about finding Hotel Sidhartha. The kind of standard you hope to stumble upon at each new destination. Decent sized room and clean enough for a few nights stay, amazing location for an early Sunrise at the Taj Mahal and even a decent rooftop photo opportunity at sunset.

The garden restaurant serves a half decent menu and the all-day Thali Meals were rather tasty! Plenty of other options are just round the corner if you fancy a change of scenery too.

Just south of the Taj Mahal are a clutch of budget Lonely Planet type hotels and hostels, with what seem to be nearly identical. This hotel was one of them, and I have no real complaints. Its literally just a 100 yards from the west entrance to the Taj, which was great when we got up to visit at dawn. The location is the main draw here. Otherwise, the hotel has a nice little courtyard, a decent restaurant, and a helpful front desk. The rooms are pretty spartan, with threadbare, stained towels, and not much in the way of bedding. Also, the shower barely worked, so we mostly ended up bathing under the faucet with a bucket. Otherwise, the room was clean, and the a/c worked great, so it wasn't too bad. This place definitely felt more like a youth hostel than a hotel, but it was fine for what it was - and the price and location were great.

Rooms are basic but big and the location right by the Taj West gate is fab. The staff are so friendly make it such a good friendly place to stay. Would love to comeback.

Hotel Sidhartha is located quite close to the Western Gate of Taj Mahal, in the Tajganj area. Vehicles are not allowed inside Tajganj and hence, do not carry any heavy luggage. The hotel is very basic in terms of services offered. There is an open air garden restaurant where you can have monkeys for company. First floor rooms are comparatively better. Not a bad option for a night stay in Agra.

Room Tip: Take a first floor room
