I think Agra is a difficult place to negotiate and we were fairly happy with our choice here. First the space: We found the room comfortable and clean and thoughtfully decorated. We were warm and didn't go without anything. It was fairly good value for money for the city I think. We were provided with breakfast at any time which... More

Had been to Agra and got a chance to stay in this home stay accommodation. It had been a very warm experience being away fro home and still feel at home. The interiors of all the rooms are very aesthetically done. And the rooftop is a lively place due to all the greenery and terracotta artifacts. Breakfast is simple and... More

If you travel to Agra, I recommand you to stay at this nice guest house. Good prices, very friendly staff, and the owner can book you a driver for the day. By the way, the guest house is not far from the 3 main touristic sites (Agra fort, Taj Mahal, baby Taj).

My sister and I spent a couple of nights at this comfortable homestay while visiting Agra. We were warmly welcomed by Monty, the owner, and well cared for by Billy, our cook and attendant. The food was well prepared and the dining area and rooftop terrace and garden were pleasant for eating and resting. You are separate from the family... More

We arrived Agra from Udaipur on 1st March 2013 and reached the Indian homestay at around 12 PM. We were welcomed by the property owner's family and soon they guided us to a room of our choice on the top floor. We had our lunch prepared by Vimlesh, who was a great help during our stay. We originally planned for... More

we stayed during off-season, incredibly hot July. Location not suitable for explorations on foot. Rooms small, basic with basic bedding but clean and value for money. Okay if only to sleep. Breakfast: toast, jam, mangoes and cheap juice. Host arranged very informative guide for Taj Mahal and palace as well as transport at a very reasonable rate. All in all:... More
