Historical Traveller Reviews of Welcomhotel Mughal Sheraton Hotel

So glad we stayed...

from CANINLON
Agra can be a little bit overwhelming and staying at the Sheraton provided a calm in the chaos. The room was beautiful and tastefully designed. The grounds, including the 'look-out tower to the Taj' are amazing; as is the service. However, the pool is average and the food expensive. It is an expensive night in India, but well worth the splurge for the comfort and security. I would highly recommend it.

A nice oasis

from esheng
Stayed here for one night and really enjoyed our stay. Our room was nice - big, nicely decorated, and very clean. It had clearly been renovated fairly recently. The hotel lobby and the restaurants do look a bit 1970s, but they aren't rundown by any means, just not terribly fashionable. One of the nicest features of the hotel are its grounds. There's a nice pool and gardens all around. Other than the Taj Mahal and Agra Fort, Agra is a miserable town so it was nice to be able to walk around the hotel when we weren't out sightseeing. The food at the kebab restaurant was also quite good.

Pleasure palace

from Tenormary
A huge complex with many tour groups staying here. We were a bit disconcerted when we arrived and there was a problem with our room key not working. Since we were a tour of two, our problem got overlooked for too long.

However, the room we did get was very nice with a spacious bathroom and a tray of sweets. We don't know if we got those as compensation for our long wait, but we didn't argue about having.

There is a wonderful "lookout" on top of this complex that faces the Taj Mahal. A wonderful place to watch the sun set or rise. They also have a maze and a wonderful swimming pool area.

Don't let a small problem of a maladjusted room key stop you from staying here.

Not quite what I expected...

from Emmam71
My partner and I stayed at the Mughal Sheraton in Agra for 2 nights in November 2005. Our guidebook said the hotel architecture was ' in Mughal style; this is one of the best hotels in India'. I beg to differ! Basically, the hotel was built in 1976, and has won a couple of architecture awards. Yes, it is built in the Mughal tradition - central courtyard, wide corridors, low-level builings and lanscaped gardens, but it is in ugly (as far as I am concerned) red brick. The main lobby of the hotel is very impressive, but other areas of the hotel still feel very 1970's, especially the reatuarants. I thought the buffet food was actually pretty below average (I stayed in another Welcomgroup hotel, the Marriott in Delhi, and the food was MUCH better). I had dinner in Peshawri, and I had to send my chicken back as it was not cooked through - it was raw in the middle!! The staff however are charming, and very helpful. I have not stayed anywhere else in Agra, so I have little to compare this hotel with, but I guess my advice would be that if you want to save money, stay here, but have your meals elsewhere! On another note, I spent 2 nights in Agra, and really only needed one - apart from the Taj Mahal and the Red Fort, there's little else to see.

Better value than the Amarvilas, better food too

from dokanman
My first trip to the Taj Mahal we stayed at the Sheraton, in April 2005. On the second trip (different partner this time!!) we stayed at the Amarvilas.

The room at the Sheraton is cornflake packet 80s style, but at least you won't get lost looking for the bathroom. We had some views of the Taj, and a loungey sort of area by the window which works well.

Reception, check in etc was as good as anywhere. We ate in the hotel - superb Indian food. The waiters were helpful and profesional without all the fawning we got at the Amarvilas. Food was miles better. Similar to the Sheraton in Delhi, which I use for the gym and pool when in Delhi, staying in a private house rather than a hotel.

There isn't a spa as such. If you want a waif of a girl rubbing perfumed oil into your back at $70 / hour you're better off in Thailand, or you can get a version at the Amarvilas.

The pool is not very special. Here the Amarvilas scores much better.

Overall, if you want to see the Taj Mahal, have dinner and move in after a couple of days then I'd recommend the Sheraton. The 300 us / night saving goes along way elsewhere.

Nice hotel

from A TripAdvisor Member
As you might expect, the Sheraton is huge and impersonal. That said, the service was great, the rooms immaculate and incredibly comfortable, and the food, very good. One of the best meals we had in all of India was at the Peshawari, which is part of a chain.

Good Hotel- Not good value for money

from A TripAdvisor Member
We stayed at the Mughal Sheraton while suffering a strong bout of travellers sickness so this review may be coloured by that perspective. Overall the hotel was reasonable but a number of fundamental problems occured like many hotels in India, the airconditioning was below average. The air being not cool enough even at the lowest setting and far to dry. Avoid the so called chinese restaurant the food was not chinese and cost a bomb.The Indian restaurant was quite good but also expensive considering the value to be had in the city outside the hotel. The staff were attentive but many of them as do many Indian hotel workers think that because you are not Indian you are a business opportunity for something on the side. Generally a good hotel but too expensive for what it was.

Reasonable hotel

from A TripAdvisor Member
We spent two nights at this hotel. It was one of the better hotels that we stayed but, but there were some pluses and minuses:

Room: We found it annoying that they tried to palm us off with a twin bed room when we had booked a double bed room - which is what it said on the voucher. When we asked for what we had booked, we were then shown a smoking room - again not what we had booked. Finally, on the third attempt, we were given a double room, non-smoking! It was comfortable but nothing special.

Room service: very impressive. Food arrived within the time estimate. When they didn't have the desert i ordered they put in a substitute and called to check it was okay - even bringing me a scoop of ice-cream!

Buffet breakfast: Really wasn't very nice. Not much choice of fruit and the tea they served was so awful, you wouldn't think that this was in the country of tea!

Health centre: Very small but with really good machines and the attendant was a lovely man. The changing facilities were inadequate though, so be warned!

Checkout: Was very slow even though we were the only ones checking out at the time! Make plenty of time for this!

Excellent Hotel, Unique and Comfortable

from Migizi
Stayed here two nights while travelling through India, and was very impressed. Rooms are actually quite unique in design, not the usual box hotel rooms. Grounds are beautiful. Details:

ROOMS: I loved the room. One of the few hotel rooms I have stayed in in recent years that I can say was truly unique. There is a sofa/bed type thing in one corner by the window, low to the ground, covered in a dozen pillows. The bed is usual Sheraton - comfy. Decor is nice, and decorations are local in theme. Bathroom small but very nicely appointed.

FOOD: Buffet restaurant OK, same with Chinese restaurant. Nothing special here, but decent.

OTHER: Service was good, people were helpful and friendly. I got a pre-paid room rate that was VERY cheap on the Sheraton website. That is the way to go. View of Taj from roof, from a distance.

LOCATION: Agra has the Taj Mahal, the Red Fort, and virtually nothing else worth seeing. The rest of the town is a waste of time. That said, this hotel is in decent proximity to both.

Great hotel!

from A TripAdvisor Member
Very nice hotel. The spectacular marble lobby had a mime act going when we checked in which was quite unusual in India. The food was not bad at all. The breakfast was excellent. All in all a very peaceful stay with wonderful views.

Top Local Tips for Agra

Taj Mahal Make sure you plan enough time to visit the Taj Mahal during the day and pay extra for a guide when you reach the Taj. I also saw the Taj Mahal on a full moon night and the "dew factor" and pollution made it difficult to see. The evening viewing was a unique experience since it was so quiet, but I'm not sure if I can recommend paying extra too see it in the evening since it was difficult to see. Also, you are not allowed to go further than the first entrance platform at night (for security reasons)...

Avoid May-September I was in India during May and June on a business trip. I would never choose to go to any part of India during May-September due to the extreme heat, but Agra and Delhi are especially hot. We visited the Taj the first weekend in June, and had high temperatures of >45 degress C (up to 115 deg. F). Not only is it hot outside (even at 6:00am), but the vehicle airconditioners can barely maintain a reasonable tempurature during the 4 hour drive from Delhi.

Get a driver and get a life Don't even think of going round Agra without a driver.
