As per the value its not worth to stay with a family, nothing much to do in the hotel, old concept building, rooms made up of very old style we low standards, need to do lots of new changes, we didn't get a fresh feel there little disappointing for us.

I was at this property on 1st of April with my friend's family in all 5 paxs so we booked 2 rooms well in advance so we got a good deal on the rack rate which was quite higher. This hotel is on the main Fathehabad rd. quite near to the TAJ. The entry is through a huge iron gate... More

I stayed in Agra for one night and found this hotel well situated, clean, and reasonably quiet. The staff provided good service and the food in the restaurant was ok - very much suited to a Western palate. I would stay again at this hotel if I ever come back to Agra. The internet was sluggish, but it was not... More

I stayed one night at Howard Plaza in April as part of an Intrepid tour. It is what one would expect of an international hotel chain: sumptuous lobby, (surprisingly) spacious rooms with very comfortable beds and fast free wifi which never fails. Large windows meant that you can fill your room with sunlight, if so desired. The ensuite, which is... More

The location of this hotel is very near to the Taj Mahal. Our 2 nights stay at this hotel was comfortable but the bathroom towels should be immediately replaced as they are all worn out. Food is good n good value for money !

Chose this hotel after surveying reviews of several hotels available on tripadvisor. Was not disappointed. It was exactly the way as visualized. Excellent in all spheres. Traveled with my family for a two day trip to Agra and stayed here. Children were allotted adjacent rooms as requested and both the rooms with their bathrooms were of excellent superior quality. Everyone,... More

We stayed for two nights at the hotel and our stay was generally very comfortable. The staff were welcoming and attentive, bed wide and comfortable and the general appearance was clean and well maintained. We stayed on a half board basis and there was a good range of Indian and international cuisine on offer. Our room was large and spacious... More

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.
