“Not the nicest hotel”
Reviewed 13 March 2012

This isn't a great hotel. When we were shown to our room I was disappointed, although not surprised. There was a horrible must smell to it and the decoration was pretty grim. Thankfully we were only there for one night and were out all day so spent very little time there.

Breakfast was ok, but the service wasn't particularly good. It seemed most people went for breakfast early and there weren't really enough staff to cope with this.

The lift was broken when we arrived and so we were taken up to our floor through the service lift. I have to say it looked very grim in the staff only areas and I saw a glimpse of the kitchen which also put me off wanting to eat there.

Not a hotel i would chose to stay at again

We stayed in the Hotel Marina Agra from 9th - 11th Feb 2012, along with nearly 60 intimate family guests, in connection with the marriage of my son - who works in Paris, France. The three day long festivities and celebrations were unforgettable not for the reason that it was our family function but surely for reasons much beyond that. The ambiance of the venue added extra grace to the occasion. Hotel Marina had something special to offer to all our guests equally from European to north & south Indians. A very comfortable & cozy stay in rooms, delicious food - with a wide variety of north Indian to south Indian to European dishes, very hospitable service staff with a ready-to-attend smile - was a great contentment. I am happy because all my guests appreciated the arrangements at Hotel Marina and returned satisfied. My very special thanks to the Chief Chef for his extraordinary combination of the menu for a multi-regional group, as it was. Prof. (Dr.) Pankaj Srivastava

The room sizes are good, very good infact. So are the bathrooms... Probably the only thing nice about the hotel were these.... Some may argue that so is the location (proximity to railway station... 0.5 - 1 Km from Raja Ki Mandi Railway Station)... located in heart of the city...

The moment you enter the hotel premises, a very, umm.. how do i put it, "dismal" (for the lack of any better word at this moment) feeling takes over... the hotel looks like it was made in 1700s...

I am sure it must have been a luxurious hotel, counterpart of Hotel Ashok in Delhi, when the latter was one of the better properties in Delhi...

Ahh, how can I forget the hotel staff... Such high-handedness... Simple lack of courtesy...

Food... wow, just wow... the only thing that was edible was the watermelon juice... made to order eggs had no eggs...sausages were stinking... i can go on and on and on...

Anyways... Overall, good size hotel rooms with perhaps a good location are the only positives...

An ordinary hotel no + no -. The hotel was choosen by the tour operator and was quite OK for the money paid for the trip. Came in late and left early so we didn't observed the pool. But as trhe temperature was only 8 degrees in the morning we had no use of a swimmingpool.
