Nearest hotel from Taj Mahal
The room was good, clean and nice to stay. (Std non a/c). We were 3 adults and 2 kids who stayed. All of us liked the food. Will tell my other friends.
I'm more than satisfied.
Decent hotel. Food served was good.
Friendly staff, good food, though little over priced. Room was comfortable. Corridor noise was a problem occasionally. Basically a good choice.

My husband and I stayed at the Hotel Sidhartha for four nights while we explored Agra and did a side trip to another city. Our room was clean, comfortable and the bed was great. There's a nice (but slow) restaurant in the courtyard. The staff is lovely. And you're within easy walking distance to the Taj Mahal, down a pedestrian street, so it's actually pretty quiet (by Indian standards.) A really good budget hotel.
Hotel Sidhartha is located close to Western gate of Taj Mahal. It is ideal for backpackers and budget travellers. The service is prompt. The room beds sheet was not clean and was changed on request. They were kind enough to allowed early check in at 10 am. Overall, if you are tight on budget and need hotel for overnight sleep, this property is a good option.
Lots and lots of people come to stay here for one or 2 nights simply to see the Taj. It is perfect for this reason too. The hotel is so close to the Taj, its within the 'no driving zone' surrounding the Taj. Less than 5 minutes walk to the Entrance. Really cheap room with amazing showers. Really hot water which in January Agra is needed. The room was cold, even under the covers so wrap up and utilise the hot showers to heat up. Good, cheap food too. Good TV channels. Other than the Taj (which is half a day activity) there isn't much else to do around Agra so we chilled in our room. Good cable channels helped to pass the time.Wi-fi connection is pretty good too. Nice, friendly staff. Thank you.
Cant say I had a pleasant stay in the Hotel. The hotel rooms are not up to the mark considering the price. The positives: 1. The hotel is it is in walking distance from TajMahal. 2. Transport help provided, but they don't have their own travel desk and take help from local's. 3. Hot water available during Winter. 4. Food was eatable but a bit costlier than the quality. There are more food varieties nearby hotel which can be tried out. One major disadvantage which I wasn't aware is that the area rounding 500meters from TajMahal gets vacated and all the shops are closed after 6 or 7PM. So if you are looking for evening shopping, you might want to avoid this hotel. Also, not all amenities(furniture's, soaps etc.) are available in each room, so you will have to ask the owner for the missing things. And there is no guarantee that you will get it. I was missing a tea table in my room and even after repetitive request to the owner and staff, even after staying there for 3 days, it was not provided and was mentioned that they don't have it. For a simple drinking water or cleaning the room, you have to place multiple request with the staff. Overall, if you need a one night stay and just went Agra for TajMahal, then okay, else there are other options available for your choosing.
We really enjoyed our stay here. It's a backpacker's dream! It was cheap, great shower pressure (OMG that was a nice change!) and probably one of the better budget accommodations we've been to. There's also a restaurant on the premise if you don't feel like going outside for meals. The only issue we had was the WIFI signal was not strong enough to reach our room. However, our room was probably to furthest one away, so other rooms would be fine. For the times we needed Internet, we just hung out in the restaurant having cups of tea. Other than that, the staff were friendly and very helpful. The location of this place is excellent, only a 2 minutes away from the Taj Mahal. Definitely recommend.
