BIGGEST DISAPPOINTMENT!! This hotel is the worst I have stayed so far in my life. Rooms are dirty, towels are dirty (as mentioned by other reviewers also). They stole my sports coat (worth $100+) between front desk and my room, when asked, one (out of 2) of the bell boy simply denied that he even saw the coat while other bell boy could confirm that they had a coat for the delivery in my room at the time of arrival. I further complained to the line manager and they simply shrugged by saying oh! it is just lost. Hello! aren't you going to do something about this? Answer was flat no. I called Holiday Inn 800 number from India, 1-800-423-0908 and the lady assured me some action, but so far I haven't heard back from any of them. So I am assuming my coat has been lost. I would stay away from this hotel and won't fall for a cheap price at all, because of dishonest staff and unresponsive management. Rather I would pay little higher and have a peace of my mind.

We were booked at a much more expensive hotel, and our Indian friend's dad suggested a move to here. The price was right, and its what you'd expect from a chain hotel. Decent room that's clean enough, many TV channels to distract you and a restaurant if you're too lazy to venture outside. We ate at the restaurant, and I can't remember much about it, so it must have been average too. =) All in all, a decent stopover if you get a good rate. Not a fleatrap, not a palace.

Stayed here for 2 nights whilst in Agra.
Lovely room, very much a business hotel rather than tourist, but still comfortable.
Lovely food in restaurant and good service. Would recommend it.
Room and pool areas both clean

To visit Taj Mahal in the evening and in the morning, we had to stay 1 night in Agra. Holiday Inn offered online instant booking and was chosen. Our stay was terrible. The room was dirty at arrival. The staff promised to clean it, but it was never done. Laundry service was offered, but only if you stayed for 2 nights. Taj Mahal was far away, about 20-30 minutes by car. I dont understand how this hotel has got its Holiday Inn name.

Rooms good, reception good and helpful, but this hotel is let down by poor restaurant and bar service. The food is only average and the restaurant furniture is dirty and food stained. Restaurant staff uniforms leave much to be desired in terms of cleanliness! Holiday Inn in Jaipur is much better.

We had a fantastic stay at this hotel, the staff were excellent , very respectful and when I was a bit travel weary and frazzelled they were calm and helpful, the maintenance guy was brilliant and helped my when I had a problem with my camera charger , no fee, so I have beautiful photos of the Taj Mahal thanks to the helpful and friendly staff. They had good english and the room service and housekeeping were excellent. Reception was always there to provide advice and directions.

We would definately stay there again, as this hotel is good value, secure and the food in the ground floor restaraunt was fabulous , also I had the option to have english style food if I wanted it , but the indian food was very good , not too spicy.

This is a great hotel. Yes it is in India , so tipping is important to the staff, but we were treated very well from the moment we arrived , like honoured guests.
