Would you call it cheap midrange or high-end budget?

It's worth visiting Agra on more than a day trip from Delhi (Agra Fort is superior to Red Fort, and Fetehpur Sikri feels like a movie set!), so you need a place to stay. There are few midrange hotels, and Taj Plaza was a solid entry for comfy high-end budget digs -- good value, good location, relaxing roof top deck with ice cold Kingfishers. The rooms could be bigger if we cared to hang out in them, but we chilled on the roof most of the time. Worth it.

Time-saving tip: Short walk from hotel

So close to the East Gate that you have to walk away from the Taj to buy tickets for entry! Five min to ticket booth, 12-15 min downhill walk to the Taj. And you avoid the fetid South Gate entrance.

It must be there somewhere

Outside of the hike to the fourth floor (no elevator), the accomodations were quite nice and the staff was pleasant. It was a short walk to the Taj Mahal gate at dawn, where we huddled waiting for entry with a remarkable cross-cultural selection of tourists. Back to the hotel afterwards for a welcome shower (ample hot water)and breakfast. Be forewarned that the view of the Taj from the terrace is subject to the vagaries of air quality, which are entirely out of the control of the hotel. Hopefully you will have a clearer day than ours.

Agra experience without the hassle

Hotel was not bad by Indian standards, room was spacious & clean though very basic. The rooftop restaurant was the main attraction for me, though also basic it did indeed have a clear view of the Taj without unsightly buildings interfering....mostly treetops, and the food for the one lunch I had there was very enjoyable. The staff were also friendly & helpful without being pushy which for Agra is indeed a bonus

Near the East Gate which is the least busy entrance to the Taj, and adjacent cafe coffee inn has real coffee & muffins/brownies for less than a euro!

Well...grubby...

We were upset at how dirty the hotel seemed to be... public rooms, restaurant and our room and bath. We were promised a view and of course when the sun rose we realized we got no such thing. The location, however, was great!

Good location - that's it

Has a roof top restaurant, which is good for beer. The food is very boring. As the Taj Mahal is not illuminated at night, not much to see in the evening, but nice in the morning. The hotel room was dirty - lots of bugs, mosquitos and even a lizard. I am not sure about other hotels in Agra, but compared to hotels in Jaipur and Jodhpur overprized. Also do not change money in the hotel, as they give out old notes.
