Your Views about Hotel Clarks Shiraz Agra
mfuwe,Ramsey April 2008:“A room with a
view to die for.”
Everyone needs to visit Agra at least once in their lives. this was
my 2nd and Mrs M's first.Chosen for us by
our excellent agent in Delhi nad confirmed by us from
checking the website.This has to be one of the nicest places to stay in
India if not the world. Where else would you get a view of the Iconic
Taj Mahal from your bedroom window?
A clear and unobstructed view, not a neck craining glimpse!
The whole ambience of the place reeked luxury and yet it was not
particularly expensive. (I need a comfortable base not a Palace and
don't pay silly money for facilities
I do not need.)
Nice green grounds to walk in and pleasant restaurants.
A friendly salute from the uniformed doorman and everything was
absolutely perfect. Check in, check out and the rooms. Lifts
everything. I cannot praise this place
highly enough bearing in mind its location in a very competitive city.
migueli ,Canada 22 April 2008:“Nothing
Three of us (one couple and a single) stayed here while visiting the
Taj. We booked through Bhavyaholidays an Indian travel agent
based out of Delhi (they were great). Booking through the
agent the price was much cheaper than what the hotel
I'm glad we paid the lower rate as this hotel did little to impress.
Everything is old and outdated. But after
traveling via car from Delhi it didn't matter. However the walls
are paper thin and the wedding out in the court yard started at 9pm
and went til 2ish with loud drums and blaring music. If you see an event
set up move to the other side of the hotel. Breakfast was
included but again wasn't anything special. It was edible and no one got
sick so that's a start.
Positives: Food was great in the restaurant on the top floor. The
proximity to the taj and red fort was
Ayshaben ,Sydney 7 April
This hotel was part of a tour and after the first hotel we were very
pleasantly surprised. After arriving and settling in our rooms we were
all in fantastic moods.
The front desk and concierge were extremely helpful and professional.
The pool was a nice little spot to chill out as was the little coffee
Rooms were spacious and very clean and all the little freebies in the
bathroom were a bonus.
Thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this hotel, would stay again.
Parfum USA,April 4 2008:“Pricey but
a decent price using hotels.com but
other things such as the restaurant,
the beauty salon (where we got
mehndi done) were rather pricey. But
my friend and I felt it was
worth it! We enjoyed spoiling
ourselves there. As Lonely Planet
mentioned, the hotel is showing a
bit of age but still is a 5-star
hotel w/ a doorman
w/ big moustache and white princely
outfit. I would recommend it again.
Tryfan ,Ludlow, Shropshire 16 March 2008:“Poor relations”
Large, soulless hotel in need of a make-over. Catering for large tour groups, the solo traveller is treated like a poor relation. Because we had booked on-line we were not allowed to have the buffet breakfast but sent to an empty coffee lounge for toast and tea only.
The rooms were large and well-equipped.
None of the staff, tour agency, ofrflight agencies on site were prepared to help us confirm flights as we had not booked with them and, therefore, they were getting no commission.
The hotel was convenient for the Taj and we found a very good auto-rickshaw driver outside named Rakesh (Ricky) who took us around locally and stopped us at very good and cheap restaurants. We also went further afield by taxi to Fatehpur Sikri.
The hotel had a good swimming pool area but it was too cold to swim when we were there.
Adam Australia Nov 24, 2008 : “Great
We stayed in the refurbished Tower Wing,clean spacious ,well
presented room.The staff were friendly,dinners were very good.Meals in
the Coffee shop,tasty & ideal for a light snack.
Located out of town,ideal for those wanting a quiter location.
Well worth the stay.
Nov 23, 2008 : “One of the better hotels in Agra at a reasonable price”
We stayed in the Tower Wing, which was recently renovated. The rooms
were impeccably cleaned and the service staff extremely friendly and
helpful. The variety of breakfast is good with a selection of
Continental and Indian items, and the quality of the food was fabulous!
The hotel claims that they have rooms that face the Taj Mahal. True, but
the view is tremendously small, so there’s no difference between having
a room with a view or not.
The most unfortunate thing we faced was with the front office staff who
argued with us over some laundry pieces that were not finished by the
time we checked out. Instead of waiving the charges of a service not
rendered in time, he told us that he still had to charge us, as it was a
cancellation at our end.
Overall, the experience and stay at this hotel is definitely
IL Sep 27, 2007 : “Worst of
This was the worst hotel of our entire trip and we stayed in four
different hotels in India. Location was such that there was not much
around, food was so-so, and rooms were in bad shape and needed updating.
I would put this as a $50 a night room in the USA. Bugs on bathroom
floor, a/c not up to par, and food just so-so. I would not go back.
Lights went out about 5 times a night in the evening hours, so we were
afraid to use the elevator.
Winchester UK Jun 22, 2007: “Average but sufficient”
Stayed here for one night on a solo tour. This hotel is definately
geared towards the large tour groups but it was not too busy during my
Overall the hotel is adequate and clean, it has a small bar and a couple
of restaurants and some small gift shops.
Room was clean and ok, but no Taj view.
The food was average, I had the buffet along with the hoards of groups
which also dined in the restaraunt.
The power went three times during my stay, the last time I was stuck in
a small lift for 25 minutes with some fellow guests...not a pleasent
experience...the staff were matter of fact about it so it must be a
fairly common occurance!
Overall this hotel is definately not a 5 star hotel, by western
standards I would class this as a very good 3 star hotel.
Ronald Jun 12, 2007 :
We stayed there as part of a tour (Adventures Abroad). It was nothing
great but just fine—nicer than the Clarks in Varanasi. It has a
restaurant and outdoor area that supposedly has views of the Taj, and
I went up their at sunrise time, but like most mornings it was totally
fogged in and invisible.
