Initial impression was of disappointment in the quality of room; damp with incomplete & dirty bedding, rusty bathroom fittings. Let's see how things pan out in the next two days... Restaurant busy with attendant waiters...

We stayed with a 4 and 8 year old in a triple share room. The room was clean and comfortable. We had dinner on the terrace as recommended by others and it was well worth it. Excellent food and a lovely view. We couldn't quite see the taj but I'm sure in the sun it would be easy. The only...

I liked this hotel. Reception is an atrium - very light, spacious and airy. A porter took our bags up to our room which, again, was light and airy - and relaxing and comfortable. Wifi was free and reliable. There is a pool but unfortunately I didn't get to check it out. We ended up spending the evening at the...

In our recent travel to Agra, we stayed at the Howard Plaza. We have stayed at this property earlier as well. This time the room given to us was in a very shabby state. The hotel directory was torn, the phone was not working, toilet was not clean. We always love and this time too loved the Terrace Grill. Next...

We stayed 2 nights at this hotel during our visit to Agra. It is maintained well. It suits International Travelers. The location is good, and close to Taj Mahal. The restaurant is fine, and the breakfast spread is reasonable. The interesting thing is the marble inlay shop inside the hotel. The artisan involved with the shop was overly friendly, but...

Hotel was okay, clean and the food was good. King size bed consists of two separate mattresses, which slept a bit uncomfortable. Pictures are a bit of an oversell, same as the rates. Location was conveniently close to the highlights.
