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!

The hotel is good, and had a lovely omelet for breakfast, with fresh mango ...

... it was a staggering 180$ for a private car. Luckily, I had checked transport prices online a day before in Amman in the cafe and knew that I should definitely not pay more than 80$. In the end 70$ was possible plus highway tolls. Well, I knew this is still sort of rip-off, but I wanted to get to Agra today and get a shower soon (as I said before I was too susceptible to scam today :-) ).
The taxi driver took me to the meeting point with the other driver, but of course ...
... gross curd) and an unappetising looking pile of stuffed parottas and curd. I don't have much appetite and after trying the lassi, not much hope for the taste of the parottas and went to bed. Lucy persevered and managed to eat some. Our room is a disgusting dingy hole with disgusting mink blankets which I suspect haven't been washed for 10 years (yellowing brown with hardening mink). The toilet doesn't flush in our first room so we move to another equally hole-esque ...
... down. After about 23 hours on the train we really needed to freshen up. The water wasn't even warm and the water pressure little more than a trickle. Shivering, we do our best with what's available and focus on the good aspects.
Rajinar explains she like to meet new people and cook..and cook she can! The meal, costing 350 rupees each, was a real treat, consisting of vegetarian curries, soups, rice and other delicious items. It's practically "all you can eat". We end up ...
