We booked 3 nights at the Qutub as part of a Golden Triangle tour from Southhall travel. All hotels were to be 3 star, those in Agra and Jaipur were both good, and showed what we expected of a 3 star hotel. The Qutub is dark, dingy and dirty. The rooms lacked natural light even if they had Windows, they had peeling wall paper, damp plaster, and intermittent electricity. The rooms on the front were consistently noisy due to proximity to a busy road junction. The bathroom was filthy, and hot water again intermittent. In 30yrs of travel across the globe this is without doubt the worst hotel we have stayed at.
