The hotel is a nice property closer to Taj. Lets be honest it is not a five start property neither do they claim but i guess a very decent property to stay with family closer to Taj. The health club, pool and other facilities are all functional and kept in great shape. The front desk staff is attentive and accommodates... More

Luckily we only stayed one night at this hotel that smelled very strong of cow dung. Although it was shown free wifi, it did not work at all. Breakfast was quite poor, lacking fresh fruit. In general Agra city is very dirty and shabby. The only things worth visiting are Taj Mahal Fort and Little Taj. Also worth buying gemstones.

We had shortlisted the Howard Plaza among other hotels, but decided to drive to Agra and then book...which turned out to be a great decision! Most hotels in this range are shoddy fly-by-night style operations and in a lot of cases were just haphazardly erected blocks..with no parking available!? The front desk was really well managed and we were given... More

We stayed there just for one night. Our room was comfortable, clean with an adequate size. The bathroom was also clean, big, but... the wall that separated the shower from the room was made of glass. Although it had a opaque blind, It was not enough to hide the shade. I may not be a problem if you go with... More

We originally booked this hotel as we were reaching agra only around midnight and were leaving early morning at 6 am for the Taj Mahal. Hence decided that a normal range hotel should be adequate.

Well, we had to settle for Howard plaza as most of the other hotels in Agra were sold out due to long weekend. However it proved to be much better than our expectations. Hotel lobby is pretty grand for a 3 star hotel; rooms are comfortable and well maintained. Hotel sports a swimming pool, fitness center and a spa. We... More
