We landed up to this hotel without booking for a night stay in Agra. Hotel was ready to give us a good deal for a single deluxe room for 3people mostly because it is off season. Deluxe room is very spacious on 1st floor. Bathrooms big and clean. Room too was very clean. Prompt room service. Though we wanted taj... More

Overall Experience: Rooms are good. Pool is small but nice. It is located near to main tourist attractions like Tajmahal and Lal Quila. Free WiFi. Avoid roof top restaurant food. I visited the place on 15th August 2015. Got a room on 1st floor and it was neat and clean. The room services were also good. We went for lunch... More

Good for nothing! Pathetic service. Staff is arrogant and completely illogical,in case you try to convince them of their lackings. Hard to imagine they are still surving in this competive environment. No wonder they are offering rooms at such low prices because that is what their worth is.. Avoid it altogether. Much better options are available in agra

We stayed there as kind of B&BF. Front desk service is poor. They made us wait though no other visitors there. They are not giving welcoming service. After getting our room card, we tried to open the doors. But room card is wrong. Bell boy went to get new one, again wrong. After ten mins this story came to climax,... More

The food was great, the staff went above and beyond. They even changed my tire when it was flat. They played with the kids, and the art in the store in the hotel was incredible. Would suggest this hotel to anyone going through to see the Taj Mahal.

Only a 5/10 minute walk from the Taj Mahal and with fabulous sunset views of it from the rooftop restaurant. Rooms are however somewhat tired and as at many Indian hotels, although we were 2 adults and 2 children, we had only one extra bed so 1 child had to sleep with the adults.

We walked to Taj from the hotel early morning. This is one of the best affordable luxury hotels I have visited. The hotel has nice and clean ambiance. The rooms have everything what is needed and we really spent a good time at the hotel. The cherry on the top is the hotel staff. They are talkative, courteous and helpful.

It was a very pleasant experience, especially after a long drive from Jaipur I was tired but the room was ready and there was the welcome drink to refresh myself and it was a very comfortable large room with everything in working order Had...

The hotel is terrible. I paid upon booking. Upon check out they wanted to pay again. I said I wouldn't. They treated me like I was a criminal and wouldn't let me leave. Ridiculous. Do not stay here. These people are hustlers of the worst kind and are not happy with one payment. They want twom

I arrived at Hotel Howard Plaza 27/07/15 at approx 20:45hrs. They did not have our full booking details and after much squabbling we managed to get the entry cards for our rooms. Both rooms were upgraded rooms and supposedly of a better nature than the deluxe. What we found was shocking.... Blood stained linen Powder insecticide against walls for roaches... More
