Guesthouses and B&Bs
Howard Plaza Agra
Rooms in this very welcoming hotel are decked out in elegant dark-wood furniture and stylish decorative tiling. Bathrooms are a little on the compact side for this price, but still very smart...
Rooms are clean with white-tiled bathrooms, but the green and blue decor leaves a lot to be desired. Guests can use the lovely pool next door for free.
Rahi Ilawart Tourist Bungalow
Rooms here are huge but not very clean considering the price. Renovation was going on at the time of research so improvements should come. The restaurant is good, though, and the bar is bright and busy.
This stylish hotel has plush rooms and is crammed with Mughal design themes, along with cool green marble, wood panelling and exotic furnishings. The garden has an interestingly shaped pool and outdoor BBQ area...
The executive-category rooms are enormous, with their own private dining areas, but standard rooms are run-of-the-mill for this price range. Wonderful restaurant, though, and a delightful teardrop-shaped pool shaded by bamboo and palm trees...
Hotel Kanha Shyam
The multistorey, multistar Kanha Shayam has had a bit of a facelift recently and boasts a new swimming pool, spa and sauna...
La Place Sarovar Portico, Lucknow
This hotel claims to treat every guest as a nawab. Modern, well-furnished rooms have bathtubs, there's an open-air rooftop grill restaurant and 24-hour coffee shop...
A pool in the garden, a water feature in the sunken, grand lobby, a plush Chinese restaurant and some spacious rooms with gleaming bathrooms make this friendly hotel in a quiet part of Sadar Bazaar worth the splurge. It also has a 24-hour cafe.
Grand Continental Hotel
Despite the elegant lobby and one beautiful marble courtyard with swimming pool, this place is a bit old fashioned, with carpeted rooms and non-matching furniture...
The Gateway Hotel Fatehabad Road
Cool elegance and Indian style feature in the communal areas with an open-plan foyer, restaurant and bar and a flow through to the outdoor pool and landscaped gardens. Renovated rooms are elegant but disappointingly ordinary for this price.
Hotel Meraden Grand
The beautifully designed central atrium garden and restaurant make for a grand entrance, but rooms here are smart and comfortable rather than luxurious. The suite, with private bar and butler service, though, is superb...
South of the train station, this huge, well-equipped place with an internet cafe and ATM has a wide variety of rooms, so look before you leap into one. It’s pretty old-fashioned and rooms are basic, especially the non-AC ones...
The well-furnished rooms have Indian art on the walls and there's a green-themed restaurant and subterranean bar.
Pallavi International Hotel
The antique-filled former palace of the maharaja of Bahadur is now a slightly eccentric heritage hotel. Some rooms are reasonably modern, but others are tatty for this price...
Hotel Ashish Palace
Spacious rooms – some are cavernous – but not enough furniture to fill them, so far from cosy. Marble floors extend into the bathrooms. All rooms have table and chairs, TV and fridge.
The Oberoi Amarvilas, Agra
If money is no object, look no further. By far the best hotel in Agra – some say the best in India – this place oozes style and luxury...
The Gateway Hotel Ganges
Varanasi’s best hotel is set in five hectares of beautiful gardens with fruit trees, a tennis court, a pool, an outdoor yoga centre and the old maharaja’s guesthouse. You can walk, cycle or take a ride in a maharaja’s buggy around the grounds...
Rahi Hotel Gomti
Sadly the pristine condition of Gomti’s marble lobby doesn’t extend into its rooms, which, although big, are somewhat dark and musty. They are all well equipped, however, with TV, sofa, table and chairs.
Rahi Pathik Niwas
Opposite the Mahasukhamdadachan Thargyi Pagoda, this UP Tourism hotel has rooms set around pleasant gardens. Be aware that the pricey AC rooms are the same as the cheaper rooms, only with AC. Offers meals (Rs40 to Rs125).
Hotel U. R.
Not a bad choice with a good location and clean, comfortable rooms. All have AC, TV and clean bathrooms.
Rahi Gulistan Tourist Complex
The first hotel you come to after Agra Gate, about 500m east of Fatehpur Bazaar, this red sandstone UP Tourism place has rooms with high, dome ceilings set around a large garden courtyard...
Again the decor raises eyebrows – a patchwork of random, nonmatching items of furniture – but all rooms are well maintained and large. The real treat is the pool area, complete with a lush green lawn and a 3.5m-tall water slide...
