Historical Traveller Reviews of Clarks Shiraz Hotel

Nice hotel

from Jon256
A nice low key indian run hotel. The staff were friendly and the indian food was nice - not a Hyatt, but not bad. In all a little over priced but that is Agra.

One thing to stay away from is the tour office in the hotel. He sells you a good deal, but the cars are small and old and you get a driver not the tour guide promised (big difference).

Great hotel. Excellent Roof top restaurant, Reception and Bathroom needs revamp.

from EastmeetsWestAB
We stayed in this hotel for 2 nights. I honestly cannot say this is a 5 star property as the reception area and the building look a bit stale and in need of revamp. Likewise for the bathroom. The room that we had is roomy and comfortable and is not noisy. We can see a bit of Taj mahal from our room (not a lot). All the basic ammenities are there. One thing that I dislike a lot is that housekeeping people keep on checking on you whether you are going back to your room and let you know how he has cleaned your room and expect us to pay them a tip!!!!

From hotel perspective, this hotel is really great in terms of ammenities as they have post office, a bank for foreign exchange and several shops in the hotel. I would definitely recommend shopping in a shop called the Silk Emporium. The prices that he has quoted are the cheapest that I have seen so far. Shopping experience is wonderful in this shop as the owner does not hassle or bargain with you.

The food in roof top restaurant is excellent and services are faultless. We were celebrating our wedding anniversary there and they even make us a heart shaped cake to help us celebrate the night!!! I would definitely recommend this restaurant!!!! The services there is up to 5Star service. Similar to Lake Palace hotel if not even better.

The restaurant at the ground floor level was ok nothing to wow about. We have buffet breakfast and there is quite a good selection.

Faultless

from Nikito_Laurita
We got the top room at 5800rp. The room was faultless and had a fantastic buffet breakfast. Can't really see the Taj from here, but the hotels in the centre appeared very basic. We stayed in mid-range hotels throughout India but splashed out a bit on this one. Were glad to have, as it was a relaxing retreat during a brief stay in Agra.

Bad service ok room

from P18
We recently went to agra for one night and stayed at the shiraz.
The room was good and the brekfast was brill. But what let this hotel down was the staff,very rude and ignorent!! Could not even get the simple things right. I asked for an extra towel and i had to call about 6 times before i finally got it.Also my friend was very sick and i asked the reception if i could get some medicine and there response was we dont know! Anyway dont expect anything when in agra. Very rude people and a very dirty place.

Good rooms, personalised service

from AmnesiaHK
I recently booked 4 Taj-facing rooms for a 1 night stay, and was very impressed when the lobby manager and front desk staff greeted me by name, and all knew about a couple of requests I had made before arriving. The rooms were nice, service throughout very courteous and efficient (e.g. they pre-purchased 'Taj by Moonlight' tickets for us without a credit card guarantee. Then we went to see sunrise over Taj Mahal and got back to the hotel well after breakfast closing time, but they patiently served us. Travel desk gave good guidance.) I travel all over the world and stay at the best places; but was frankly very pleasantly surprised with the service at what I had expected to be a routine hotel.

A word about 'Taj by Moonlight' viewing, though - On the night we went, the provincial policeman in-charge (a small-time official in a shabby grey suit) was extremely rude and in clear need of some customer-service training. Hotel staff later said they had received many complaints about police behavior - Anyone in U.P. government reading this please take note.

Nice hotel but not 5*

from Mark2211
I liked this hotel but no way a 5*. Nice grounds and the rooms are pretty standard/comfortable. Staff are excellent. Pool is nice and the facilities within the hotel are quite useful (i.e. the travel desk). The coffee shop is nice for a snack and the restuarant serves very nice food. The bar is a dark and dingey place mind you. Overall, I enjoyed my stay and would recommend.

Overpriced average hotel

from james
This self proclaimed "5 star hotel" is not in the least bit 5 star.
Rooftop restaurant and room rates are overpriced compared to rest of india. Bathrooms are only passable. Rooms are very basic and the Taj View is more like a distant squint.
On our visit the power kept cutting out and the tv channels were wiped out too. Shops in the lobby are okay but you would think that you would be safe from the touts trying to sell you tacky nonsense. The pool is nice though and the monkey security guard is cool. Only okay but as a whole Agra is pretty disappointing, DAY TRIP recommended.

The best hotel in Agra

from Clairepb
Myself and my partner went on India's Golden Triangle with Jules Vernes last year and i can say that it was the best trip i have ever been on the staying in Clarks in Agra was wonderful experience. When arriving in Agra airport my heart sank, after a long journey by plane i could belive the place that we had arrived also driving through Agra was a eye opener cows, people, bikes, mopeds buses anf lorrys all travling any where they wanted and in any direction, but arriving at the hotel was like a breath of fresh air. The hotel was spot less bedrooms were very roomy and nice, the hotel staff wre the best any where kind and helpfull and they even flushed the toilet for you and turned the tap on to was your hands. The bets place to eat is the resturant on the top floor but for a snack the bar of the ground floor to the left is good for a snack and they have a lot of choice. The breakfast is alos very nice they have the staff making any egg produce that you would like.
A early morning trip to the Taj Mahal is a must see the best way to get there is by rickshaw as they do not allow any motor vechiles near the Taj. When you get in there your bag will be searched and you cannot eat or smoke there. Out side there are people selling everything you can think of and they will try and get to buy what ever they have but just say a NO and they may listen but most likey they will try again and again but it is all part of the experience of India
Try and go to the Seik temples there and you will be able to feed the moneys that they have them that are tame, but will be harrised to pay for the food by the men there.
If you go on a rickshaw they will try and take you to a marble shop but if you do not want to go there just be ferm and also if you go for a walk you will be followed.
There is a nice resturant about 5/10 mins for the hotel it was very nice and very very cheap.
Enjoy!

Great value for high end hotel

from A TripAdvisor Member
This hotel was a great hide away from the concession grabbing men of Agra. The room was huge, clean and ours had a fabulous view of the Taj Mahal. The pool was great for relaxing round after a hard days tour to some of the beautiful sites of Agra. Plenty of restaurants to choose from, although the buffet breakfast could have been better. We paid £28 for a double room, which for saying it is a hotel on an international standard was very good value.

Wonderful welcome for tired travellers

from RamblingRob
Arriving late in the evening after a long train journey we were delighted with the warm welcome at Clarks Shiraz.

This is a western style hotel where everything works. The restaurant stayed open for us and although expenisve by Indian standards the food, view and ambience seemed well worth the money.

The rooms are very comfortable and well appointed. There is an excellent pool and all the facilities you would expect in a four star international hotel.

Top Local Tips for Agra

Ricky the rickshaw driver He was a charming man and not at all pushy,although we did go into some shops with him so he could get his commission.There are far too many touts all around the sites as locals pay so little for entry.You are constantly hassled.Make sure you go to Baby Taj and the view-point across the river - Mehtab Bagh - and also Akbar`s tomb.Good retaurants are Only, near the Clarks Shiraz and Maya in fatehabad Rd

Taj Mahal Try to visit early morning to get the best light and the least number of tourists!

Stay here If you lose your nerve and can't face Agra at least you have everything that you will need in the hotel, which at times is really reassuring.
