                  Mediocre hotel. Decent location but poor service at times. No hot water ”

                  Arrived at 10pm from Delhi and all we wanted to do was take a nice shower and sleep. there was no hot water. Took me 3 calls to front desk + maintenance to get it fixed over the length of 1 hr. By the time we checked in and it got sorted it was well past midnight. Their reason was “we don’t turn on boiler as weather is too hot and our guests don’t use hot water” Front desk staff was rude over the phone and hung up when I called. Breakfast was okay. Some mix of Indian and western fare. But not too extensive of range. Decent location - quite central and most drivers know its location

                  Height room booked not provided, so couldn't watch Taj which was the primary reason for booking this hotel. We felt cheated. Reception staff uncourteous They took tye feedback form by insisting in open condition, where's it was supposed to be closed condition. In fact they were trying to avoid to provide the feedback form. V v unprofessional. I shall strongly recommend the people to stay away from this hotel, as the money you shall be spending , vis a visit the facility n service there is too much of gap

We have to activate the access card and call the lobby to get assistance for it. We don't know for what reason the room can't be open. Facilities provided byvthe hotel were very good.

                  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.

                  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.

                  Large rooms, quiet, but central

                  I booked this hotel because of the price since the budget of the group was limited. The hotel staff was very welcoming, the rooms large and comfortable, it is only a 10 minutes walk through a park area and you are at the Taj Mahal. Although our room was with street view, it was quiet. We enjoyed the stay very much and will come back.

                  hotel was very nice and clean, room was spacious with tv with international channels. we ate dinner & breakfast at the ground floor restaurant, the food was quite good. we arrived in the evening and left early next morning so didn't get to see much else, but we did like the hotel and had a comfortable stay, and surely would have enjoyed staying longer, probably would have liked to try the rooftop bar, spa and pool.

                  It's my fault that when booking this hotel forgotting to mark out we were 2 persons. When we arrived, althought we booked a 2-bed room, the manager still charge. 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.

                  Clean and large rooms

                  Nice hotel. Staff is helpful. However, stay away from the travel desk. If you need to travel to and from Delhi, do not use taxis. Thats a long, dusty and tiring journey. 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.
