The reception was beautiful. The room prices were okay, can't complain all that much. The rooms were nice but very small, a little more room for our luggage would have been great. The room view was underwhelming but the view from the bar on level 4 was lovely. Now the food was bad news. I appreciated they included buffet breakfast... More

This hotel was the best place I stayed in during my trip to India. The food was great, staff really friendly and helpful, especially when trying to book a train as my original ticket was cancelled (thanks to Jitender Shviwas at the front desk). The room was excellent, really clean and luxurious. I would recommend this hotel to anyone.

After a very long day traveling all my boyfriend and I wanted to do was rest in a safe place for one night before our travels continued. As always you would expect to have a working safe within your room. The safe was faulty. On calling reception and being told "5 minutes" a gentleman arrived 30 mins later, unable to... More

Our stay at the Howard Plaza was very good. It was very close to the Taj Mahjal which made a convenient trip to visit this beautiful but sad landmark. The doorman is very stereotypical "India". The rooms were well maintained and the food in the hotel was good. There are a few shops in the hotel that are a little... More

The hotel is exceptionally well placed for the Taj Mahal. This hotel is really a wonderful, friendly and comfortable hotel. the rooms are quite large, with very comfortable bed and pillows.... More

A shabby hotel from the outside, once inside all seems swanky. Once you take a closer however you see that the finishes are cheap and renovation is needed.
