This was easily our best hotel stay in India. We stayed at seven hotels over 14 nights in various cities. We had been warned about the limited options in Agra but were very pleasantly surprised when we arrived at this hotel. Highly recommended.

Overall stay was good - with the only exception that the booking was made for a large family room and they did not keep it reserved. Reason was that the stay for earlier guest was extended. They however got a different room arranged for me.

                The hotel Front Desk Cheats”
                We arrived at the hotel on 24th December, 2018 in the evening having my parents, my wife and 2 kids with me. I booked 2 hotel rooms through Agoda and paid the full amount in advance including extra charges for the kids. On our arrival, the staff at the reception desk said , we must have christmas dinner at the hotel which would cost Rs. 2,200 per person. I told them this can not happen. Then they came up with a discounted proposal of Rs. 1,500 each and pressurising us if we do not pay before check in they will not allow us to check in. This was so unfortunate. My father was kind of agreed to the proposal but I was stubborn. I called up the Manager and said we shall not have our dinner and do whatever you can. Then we straight away went out for dinner. Nothing happened afterwards. I have also seen many of the people were victimized in such a way. This is extremely bad. This hotel is a cheat. The rooms are terrible and old with bad smell. Not recommended for any kind of traveller.

                Location is good, hotel is good. Only disappointed with the facilities. We had to take MANDATORY Dinner that was hosted in the evening. There wasn't any option to opt out for the dinner. The price was Rs 2200/- per person, which was too expensive with very limited Buffet options. :(. I recommend to speak with them first before making any reservation with the hotel.

                We booked room for 24-25th December. We had come for seeing Taj Mahal, Fatehpur Sikri and Agra fort. But when we reached on 24th evening, hotel asked us to take dinner for all mandatorily for 5 of us on account of Christmas even though we didnt want it. Dinner was priced 2200 per person. We had to fight for 30 mins to not take the offer. An otherwise great experience has marred by this incident

                Definitely worth every penny. Loved the room and the service. Breakfast was delish! Could be improved in terms of variation. Our room felt like home for a two night stay. Housekeeping at the best! Strategic location, close to the Taj and other sightseeing spots. Easy to get around. Will definitely come back and recommend to anyone who’s looking for a luxury experience in Agra. Suitable for solo travellers too.

                Before live in Munbai and Delhi huest house and hostel and feel not good so pay more to book this hotel. Everything are above my expectation. Room is big, good facilities, e.g. LCD TV with lots of channels, wifi is stable. Room is clean and feel comfortable. Staff is polite. Location is near Agra Ford and Tai Mahal with a around 10 mintues tuktuk. I will live again if I go Agra again. So far no complaint.

Although our room was with street view, it was quiet. We enjoyed the stay very much and will come back.

After explaining more and showing how pity and frustrated we are(took more than 20m),they give us a 70% discount...Get ready for the coldness of the civilized world... It's far from Tai Mahal than our imagination. 10-20m by walking.

HPP Hotel charges about 5500 INR for transfer to Delhi which is greatly overpriced considering that a Kingfisher airlines ticket costs you 2000 INR one way. The restaurant on the 4th floor is nice and the staff is helpful. You can also get a glimpse of the Taj from there. I am told by spa connoisseurs that the Spa at the hotel is quite avoidable. The masseuse allegedly has long nails!

                Great Place to stay in Agra”
                We all enjoyed a comfortable stay at Howard Plaza The Fern. The kids loved the pool and we all enjoyed the food. Very close to the Taj and the staff were exceptional. The live puppet show was fun as well, but the players were too pushy about selling their puppets. They should be told that pressure tactics tend to put off the hotel residents. My son-in-law never wants to see another puppet after being harrassed so much by the puppetteers.

                This was a great hotel to stay at. Staff were very friendly and helpful and very keen to assist at all times. The travel desk was very helpful and well priced and did a great job of organising our day trips.

                This hotel is best in terms of value for money. The breakfast service (rendezvous) is the best in class and can match any known 5 star. The Glassy restaurant also great in multi cuisine offerings. The rooms are big and comfy and the staff is everyready to help. Great place to live and it is 5 minutes from Taj Mahal. I will recommend anybody who would like stay 5 star but don't want to spend 5 star
