I like this hotel. In spite of its strategic location (although we did missed it couple of time :) it was right on a junction and I don't remember seeing any billboard or sign board or anything), the room were great, service were excellent, love their spacious rooftop (If only it was more alive with parties or something). Good swimming pool area, the food were not bad either. Overall If I go Agra ever again, I would come back to this hotel, value for the budget and after you seen the Grande Taj Mahal, coming back to a simple modern hotel is a good thing :)

This is a nice property which is in a good location not very far from Taj Mahal. They have some of the rooms which are renovated and look fresh. The hotel has a decent size swimming pool and the main attraction of the hotel was the water splash, standing below that was quite a good experience while you get massaged by the falling water.

They do have a spa on site which is good and not so expansive. The food is good although at times you may find things very mildly spiced made to cater the foreign tourist but that is fine. Overall, we had a good time at property close to the hotel there are several eating options and place for shopping and Taj is about a km from this hotel. For Taj its better to take a hand rickshaw from here and go no need to take the car if you have driven to the place. Overall, a nice experience and value for money.

Went to see the beauty of Taj with family last year and checked-in this inn.. The staff was incredible, I requested a late check-out it was given to me till 13:00 hr notwithstanding asking for 1400 hr however the young lady Priyanka at gathering was sufficiently thoughtful to amplify it till 13:30 hr. Sustenance was phenomenal, the porch relax on 4 th floor is an extraordinary spot to unwind in the outdoors. 5 minutes from Taj Mahal. An incredible quality for cash inn.

Well, we had to settle for Howard Park 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 spent most of the evening at their newly operational rooftop restaurant, which has a fantastic and elegant decor and wonderful ambiance after sunset, although you might be attacked by mosquito (don't worry just ask the staff they will take care of it). You can actually see the Dome of Taj from the rooftop. Infect the hotel is situated hardly a km from the Taj entry gate.

Buffet dinner & breakfast are served at the other restaurant on the ground floor. Food was just ok. Although the hotel building is quite old I think there has been a significant improvement in the service after Sarovar took over, however I have one suggestion for them. Please remove the old sofas on each of the floor, even if you can't afford to replace them with new ones. Just remove them they don't go along with rest of the interior.

This hotel is excellent place to plan your weekend to visit Agra. I visited recently and had a relaxing and wonderful experience. Rooms are well-designed and view was good. We enjoyed a lot in swimming pool, it was very nice. Further the breakfast was wonderful, as there was live cooking as well.

Very comfortable stay in reasonable price! Location is very near to Taj Mahal and parking is present inside the hotel. Rooms are comfortable with big size and service is exceptional. Breakfast buffet at the lobby is excellent with a very wide choice. The pool is not much big though quite fine. Simply value for money!

This hotel is located right in Agra city centre, half a kilometre from Taj Mahal.

Pros-
Complimentary tea/ coffee/ kettle in the room (use bottled water).
Large breakfast with many options, fresh omelet station, and very attentive staff.
Free WI-FI with reasonable speed.
Large clean and comfortable bed with multiple soft pillows.
Hotel is situated fairly close to the Taj Mahal, probably about a 10 minute drive away.
Helpful staff (especially at the restaurant).

Cons-
Staff was hanging around too much for tips.
The rooms were nice but very small

Overall a good budget hotel!

Our visit to Agra was obviously for sight seeing especially the Taj and we were recommended Howard Plaza by our friend and we were never disappointed with our stay. The hotel is ideally located for our visit to Taj Mahal. The amenities in this hotel were well within the budget we paid and the services are adequate without any issues. The staff were all well informed and very helpful. The mattresses and the toilets were clean for our just 2 days stay. The food was okay as we had only breakfast here.

Just try to bargain for the price or search online to get good price and try to avoid peak season for overcrowding at the hotel as well as at Taj. Just go with your own materials like shampoo, soaps, etc., as they were not providing the same to us and we had to resort to the help of staff to get it brought for us.
