The place is simply a dream and the best you can get, maybe on a global scale. Still for the price you are willing to pay service could definitely be better. We stayed two nights and on second night another guest did party hard and no one from the hotel bothered to interrupt the party. The party was finally stopped...

After a lengthy day of touring, including a couple of nasty stops in the less-than-hospitable railway stations, we were weary and hungry when we arrived at the Oberoi around 10:00 p.m. Too late for the dining room, and in any event not anxious for a lengthy meal, I opted for room service. In less than 15 minutes I was served...

This is probably the closest hotel to the Taj Mahal and all rooms overlook the Taj. We had a balcony suite and spent many hours sitting out and enjoying the view of the building through the hazy pollution. The hotel is set in beautiful gardens. Be warned that food and services at the hotel are extremely expensive. Wifi is free...

On our trip to visit Taj Mahal, we decided to splurge a little and spend 2 nights at the Oberoi. The experience was simply unforgettable. Those elegant sunset dancers on the attic, breathtaking view of Taj Mahal from our room, and overall good and attentive services.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Taj Mahal is extraordinary as much for what it is as how it has escaped the banality of cliché. For 350 years, this monument evokes a sense of wonder. Only by being there can you witness its true majesty, its symmetry, its setting and the delicacy of its carved marble inlaid with precious stones. Now just suppose you were to overlook it from your hotel room? The Oberoi Amarvilas is 600 metres from this tribute to love. The lavish interiors and elaborate gardens add to the serenity of the scene. The guestrooms are palatial: all have magical views and are luxuriously furnished with traditional fabrics, white marble, hand-crafted ornaments and every modern amenity. There is a luxury spa offering a range of therapies, a swimming pool where snacks and drinks are served; an ornamented ballroom and fine restaurants to suit the international palate. But the lobby lounge is a feast for the eye designed, as it was, around that glorious view of the Taj Mahal. ... more   less
