We stayed at this hotel on a Friday night before visiting the Taj Mahal. Whilst the room was adequate, it was immediately below the function level. We suffered the noise and disturbance from a party above - chairs being continually scraped on the floor & other impact noises - incessantly until 2.00 in the morning. Although we phoned the front...

My wife and I stayed here in February of 2014 when we passed through Agra. The hotel is clean and the front desk staff are pretty helpful. Unfortunately, the bed was terrible, even by India standards. One of the more annoying things was the guy that cleaned our room would follow us out of our room in the morning and... More

This was one of the better hotels that we stayed at on our trip, which tended to be 4* rather than 5*. Clean and spacious. Everything worked. Decent food. Free wifi in the lobby (if my memory serves me correctly!). Pretty close to the Taj Mahal.

We were treated like royalty at this hotel! Very friendly staff, great breakfast too. Our room service waiter, Baldev was so friendly and accommodating. Beautiful hotel, good sized rooms and great gift shop. We had the pleasure of seeing an Indian wedding take place too. Such a great experience. I would highly recommend staying here if you are in Agra.

We spent several days at the Howard Plaza on two separate occasions while my husband undertook some rather painful dental treatment and found it to be very good. The staff were very helpful and we thoroughly enjoyed our stays. Thanks

Howard Plaza has a roof bar - good place to drink Old Monk rum, even in January - waiters brought gas heaters and blankets so everything was cool. Also you can walk on the roof and make a selfie with huge HOWARD sign. Room was ok, except one thing - it sweated. Bay window was entirely covered with water, so... More

When we checked in, I wanted to ask our driver if we were in the right place. The lobby looks 5 star. The room I was in was also amazing. You must see how the room opens up when the blind in the bathroom is open. Major gripe: I could not sleep due to the noise outside. This also make... More

My husband and I stayed at this hotel for 1 night as part of our Golden Triangle tour. The hotel is situated fairly close to the Taj Mahal, probably about a 10 minute drive away, so is useful in that respect. The hotel is fairly secure as there are gates manned by security staff at the front of the hotel.... More

Been to this hotel many times by now...its pretty decent 4 star hotel compared to other hotels in Agra in the same category. It is one of the old hotels and holds a very prime location close to Pizza hut and other eateries. Over all good hotel.. worth every penny. PS: roof top is good for parties. 4 Stars
