It was really nice to be in Agra somewhere that was peaceful but also they were all really friendly and helpful. Although we didn't spend long in Agra we enjoyed our time here :). The rooftop is really nice and you can see the Taj Mahal and a lot of Agra. If we go to Agra again we will be... More

The family is very kind but they will try to take you to stores, saying its from their family. Of the the guys started being a little annoying, we wouldnt... More

Jonathan was a very friendly host and made my stay worthwhile, gave me good information and recommendations for the rest of my trip. The rooms were nothing special, but nothing to complain about there. If you want a nicer place you can pay a bit more and have one. The price normally reflects the quality of the establishment if not... More

You don't know who to ask for anything as there are just so many people, off putting! The guys are nice enough who run it but a bit too much at times wanting... More

The brothers of the house do an excellent job at catering to your needs. They helped us book all of our train tickets, including a taktal ticket (emergency ticket). Since the sons like to travel themselves, they know exactly what information to provide for their guests. The rooms are very nicely maintained and has a nice rooftop. The family made... More
