We stayed 1 night at the Trident, it was peaceful and relaxing with beautiful green gardens, it was really nice to return to after the chaos of Agra. Staff were all very helpful.
It is well placed for the Taj, just a few minutes on an auto, which are to be found right outside the hotel gates.
The only down side really was that it did feel quite expensive - meals and drinks were pricey! and although the food was nice it wasn't anything out of the ordinary ( we ate from the bar snacks menu as we didn't want a huge a la carte meal ).
We would return to this hotel, but I can't imagine that we would want to be in Agra again. The monuments are fabulous - we went to the fort, the Taj and the baby Taj - but other than that there is little to recommend the city.
"Nice hotel when traveling in Agra for good value"
The staff was very nice and helpful, the room was spacious and clean.
We were greeted with a beautiful bouquet of roses as it was our wedding anniversary. They also prepared a cake for us and we were very happy with their kindness and mindful attitude.
The only setback was the breakfast, it wasn't terrible but it was very far from good. The patisserie was very dry, with no flavor, the omelet was uncooked and the only other option would be the indian breakfast. Since it was early in the morning and I didn't feel like eating spice I just left with a coffee only.
But overall we had a good experience for the price we paid. I would recommend this hotel for sure.
We visited Agra on 27th June for a weekend tour and booked two rooms in the Hotel. We found the Hotel very well maintained with huge campus premises, excellent staff, nice and spacious rooms and good food. It was like having 5 star facilities at the price of say 3 to 4 star. I will strongly recommend this Hotel to all those looking for hotel accommodation at Agra. The Hotel stay made our weekend trip to Agra very pleasant.

Synonymous with love, loss, and beauty, the Taj Mahal, on a bank of the Yamuna, is one of the world's most recognizable monuments. This white marble mausoleum of Mumtaz Mahal, the beloved 3rd wife of Emperor Shah Jahan, is considered to be the zenith of Mughal architecture. While you may reserve your awe for the mausoleum, do not forget to admire the other beautiful structures in the complex.
