Trip Advisior Review  by
“Just ok”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed 1 June 2012 NEW  
My stay here was just ok the positives were the staff was very helpful n friendly can't fault them at all! Also the food was delicious we ate there all 3 nights we were there. The pool was great very refreshing n nice view of taj from the roof top. The room was nice though a bit dusty which aggravated my asthma a little but still pretty good.
Now the negatives the wifi in the room was shocking even though modem was outside our door the only way we could get it in our rooms was if we put our pc on the floor n still it dropped but they still had a pc downstairs n the wifi was fine in the lobby. There were severals blackouts during our stay which only lasted a few minutes each time but still annoying.
The tv channels would change random ud be in the middle of watching a movie n the channel would disappear then come back up on a different show but u were still on the same channel u had to flick through all the channels to find what u were watching which was very frustrating cuz it happened alot n twice right at an exciting bit of a movie lol
The one day we decided to get up at 4.30am to watch the sunrise at the taj mahal we got back at lunch n wanted a nap which didn't happen cuz they were doing construction work so we watched a movie n we had another blackout so as u can tell some parts of our stay weren't the greatest. But like I said there were some positives n the negatives brought our rating down. Overall it was good n the staff were great.

people found this review helpful. The hotel facilities are very good for the price; rooms pleasantly and stylishly decorated,air conditioning , fridge, tea/coffee making stuff in room.TV,complimentary water and toiletries and hair-dryer and the all important swimming pool! Certainly the best value for a good quality mid-range hotel within easy walking distance of the Taj Mahal.

The Taj view from the rooms is distant and will soon be gone completely due to building work next door.Indeed building work was the biggest downside to this hotel. There was noisy hammering for two consecutive afternoons on the rooftop floor above my third floor room making relaxing by the pool or in the room impossible.On top of that,the new hotel being built immediately next door means the main view is of building works and rubble and of builders openly going to the toilet (sadly not just for a wee...) right outside the hotel bedroom windows...deeply unpleasant! Such a shame as, in other respects,it ticked loads of boxes. Suggest check before booking on the progress of building works.
