“Value for money”
Reviewed June 13, 2009

The location of this hotel is a bit far from the famous Taj Mahal. Infact the hotel is located in the centre of the busy city with the police station right next door which is full of activity day and night.

We must've checked a dozen hotels around before freezing on this one. Holiday Inn is an option to definitely consider during a visit to Agra as most of the other good hotels around are very expensive and some others are really shabby and eerie.

The rooms at Holiday Inn are large and spacious with good colour schemes for carpets and walls. In today's times its rare to see such big rooms in the base category. Cleaniness was superb and so was the decor.

Food is okay and a wee bit expensive; so much for the 5 star rating. I've heard you can see Taj from some rooms but I'm sure all that will be visible would be a small speck of it.

The service is excellent and the staff is quite helpful. Surprisingly the rooms are quite affordable and great value for money.

The best part of this hotel is its location. It is located in the heart of the city. The food served in the hotel is good but the service and the rooms in the hotel are not up to mark as it should be in a 5 star hotel.

Hotel has now been re-badged as Hotel Marina.

Once elegant hotel is showing signs of wear. Having said that room was very clean with view of Taj Mahal from window.

Restaurant and bar were very good and staff very pleasant.

Outdoor pool was fine but did not provide any showering or changing facilities.

Hi
This was my first visit to Agra. I checked myself into the Holiday Inn agra Hotel.

The price for the hotel when i visited was decent & the hotel looked very luxurious from the outside. My room was quite spacious & very thing was neatly & well aranged. This was my first time with the holiday inn chain. I wasnt feeling too well since i had been travelling alot for most of the week, so for my dinner i decided to go down to the restaurant to eat something light on the stomach.
I ate grilled fish with stir fried veggies. It was well prepared as i didnt know what to expect from Agra.

I decided to take a walk as it was still early & the streets were still bustling with alot of traffic. Whn i steped out i found the area around the hotel dingy & dirty. There wasnt anything around to see so i headed back to the hotel.

The next day i headed to the taj Mahal, it was about 15mins distance from the hote. My experience there was fabulous.

I like the sights that agra had to offer, even though the city was not quite well kept. The stay at Holiday inn was comfortable. It was a pretty large hotel. The breafst was part of my package & it was good spread.

I would recommend a stay here if you have a low budget & want valur for money.

Agra, the seat of one of the seven wonders of the world, the Taj Mahal, is a city with rich Moghul heritage. The Holiday Inn Agra lies in the heart of this fascinating city, allowing you to explore and witness the ambience of this historically beautiful city. Inviting you to experience the romance of the Taj Mahal and the elegance of emperor Akbar's Fatehpur Sikri. Complementing this are the easily accessible city needs, like the Airport and the Railway station which are barely 20 minutes away. Accommodation The hotel's 148 rooms and suites, with a choice of non-smoking rooms, are tastefully furnished to provide you the very best of relaxation. In-room facilities include individual climate control, telephone with voice mail, International Direct Dialing, round the clock room service, hair dryers, mini bars, 24 hour satellite entertainment, 4 channel music and carefully selected personal care products which are standard in every room.

I have been staying at the Agra holiday inn since 2001 when the Indo Pak summit happened. It's a classic business hotel that has maintained it's standards. I have never had anything to complain about the room's cleanliness. The view is nothing to write home about and perhaps this is not the hotel to stay in if you want to be walking distance from the Taj Mahal. This hotel is bang in the middle of the city so you can explore other parts of this historic city.
Perhaps the hotel management would consider refurbishing the loos as they are a bit old and jaded, but nothing too problematic

We went to the hotel as it was near Sanjay place and we were at Agra for a very short trip from Delhi and stayed only for a night to see the Tajmahal. The hotel was good, however like most of the cities in UP the views from the windows were not that pleasant!
Overall a good location. It is a bit expensive though.
