Don't go expecting much in terms of service and other stuff you expect from a hotel. This place has an amazing view of the Taj and is definitely among the closest to the entrance, what more can you ask for? I must say that we actually got good service and the rates were very reasonable. It was all a bit...

Had a conference in Jaypee Palace and found no where except Hotel Host to have place. They were kind enough to ensure me that the room would be booked for us. We were offered free breakfast since we went for the 1500/- room per night. Anoop surprisingly was the chef and the food was cooked really well. He also assisted...

We didn't stay at this place - thank god. But we stopped off for breakfast. We ordered masala omelette and toast. It was served by two children who I think had made it. The omelette was burnt, cold, green in colour and tasted very odd. The "toast" had been dipped in some kind of oil and tasted rank. Neither of...

The hotel was extremely dirty and basically, we left the room cleaner than it was upon our arrival. There was probably a renovation going on (tones of dust and noise) but nobody mentioned that to us. Two little boys were told to carry our backpacks up.One of them was smaller than the backpack. Fabric covered bedhead looked like eaten by...

The rooms are clean and a nice size with a TV, i think a smidge pricey for a room without a bathroom but it was just across the hall and had hot water. There is a great view of the Taj from the roof and walking distance to the gate, they also sell the tickets so you don't have to...

It is clean basic hotel which they seem to be working to raise standards and were very keen to receive feedback. I had lovely comfy bed and hot showers.. my friend wasn't so lucky so think it depends which room you are in. Great view of Taj Mahal from roof and ideal location. Staff were helpful and sweet 13 year...

Hotel Host is a cheap basic hotel very good location to the west gate of the Taj Mahal although I would suggest you make the short walk to the south gate for the most magnificent first view of the Taj. The room was clean & had hot water. What i really appreciated was the thick blanket & the electric heater...

The owner is very nice, but the place feels very cheap. The rooms are so-so but the location is very, very good. Everything is with-in a 10 min walk.

Hotel host is located right outside Taj Mahal west gate, just 200m away. Rooms are basic, but clean and quiet. Beds were rock-hard, but nevertheless the location and price was more important for us. Very good option for staying few nights when visiting the Taj. There is also nice food and room service for only 5% extra!´
