Hotel Shyam Palace
N 27deg 10min 07,2sec
E 078deg 02min 23,4sec
Rs 750 for a double with TV, AC and attached bathroom. The staff are super friendly and it is located just a five minute walk away from Taj Mahal west gate. Safe parking in the locked courtyard.
* a great place for food is the Lonely Planet recommended Joney's Place on the "roundabout" close to Taj Mahal south gate. It opens even before sunrise (so you can have breakfast before catching those first sunbeams on Taj Mahal) and is both good and cheap.

Rs 800 (cheaper rooms available) for a double with a fan and attached bathroom (hot water). Contrary to the information in Lonely Planet there is no internet (the closest is some ten minutes walk away), but the manager is friendly. Parking in the compound which is locked at night.
* a good place for food if staying in the Boulevard area is the Lonely Planet recommended Punjabi Rasoi. The food there is cheap and tasty. It is right opposite the Lhasa restaurant which is more expensive, but the portions are big.
