Ajay International Hotel
Travel Blogs from Agra
We have left Delhi and are now in the province of Agra, home of the Taj Mahal. It was our first time on the Indian Railway. What an experience so far! It took about 4 hours from Delhi and we were in what is called, "sleeper class." Most Indians on a budget ride in this class. It is a great way for us to interact with locals and practice Hindi. At …
We decided to change our plans and make a detour to Agra on the way to Delhi to see the Taj Mahal – and she did not disappoint. After a nasty arrival at the Agra Fort train station at night with no white sign to great us, we finally found a rickshaw that we felt may actually take us to our hotel which was also nasty. That is the problem with …
There is not much else to do in Agra except the Taj, but still well worth the day there and the entry fee. The most famous building in the world, and deservidly so.

... evening on the rooftop, having a yummy curry and watching the best sunset I've ever seen go down over the crazy city of Agra and of course the MAJESTIC TAJ. Drinking a beer (one between three don't worry Warden), with the mosque's call to prayer ringing out, the monkeys clambering across all the buildings and telephone wires, children flying kites off their rooftops, tuk tuks honking and birds circling the Taj Mahal, it really was a magical moment!
How has this hotel rated in the past?
A very basic room in a basic hotel. Don't expect luxury! However, it's reasonably clean and conveniently located to sightseeing spots, so getting to them won't cost a lot of time and money. Staff is friendly. Bathroom is Western toilet with shower/faucet combo in same space, meaning no tub or stall, so you are showering in front of the toilet! It's not as bad as it sounds, honestly. Better than camping. Overall, would recommend as I don't see why not!
