Located only 600 metres from the Taj Mahal and with every bedroom facing the monument, this has to be one of the best situated hotels in the world.
The Gateway Hotel Fatehbagh Road
In a city full of business hotels, the Gateway Hotel Fatehabad is one of the best options for exploring the main attraction in Agra, the Taj Mahal, which is just three kilometres away.
Set in landscaped gardens, the hotel is well-appointed, if a little characterless, but offers 24-hour dining and a renowned Indian restaurant, Jhankar, which is very much worth a try.
With many of the rooms offering views of the Taj Mahal, the Gateway Hotel Fatehabad is the ideal base for a short stay in Agra.
