"This is THE place to stay if visiting the Taj Mahal. Our room, as all of them do at Amarvilas, had a great view of the Taj Mahal, and it was so convenient to be so close. We were celebrating our wedding anniversary and we were treated to flowers, special turndown service including rose petals in bath and at dinner a special anniversary cake. I have a severe food allergy and Head Chef made it his business to cook personally for me. My husband was totally impressed. Bar staff were very friendly, efficient and genuine with their service. Cannot recommend this hotel highly enough."
