Clean and comfortable rooms, a lovely garden and small terrace. A little distance out from the centre which is good for relaxing away from the busyness but can be tricky to get back and forth frequently. To be able to get into the centre the host organized tuk-tuk for us. The host was very friendly, interesting to talk to and... More

We stayed in Agra for 2 nights and we really enjoyed this place. It is a bit far off the noisy city center, and getting to there by rickshaw would be a bit less than 100rp. The rooms are big, with AC, and they have nice breakfast. The owner is really helpful and speaks perfectly French (which is an really... More

Mr. and Mrs.Rajbansh were great host, the place is clean and beautiful. The main attraction like Taj Mahal and Agra fort are close to the place, only you need to hire or have your vechile as the property is located inside a society away from the main road. If you are looking for a decent place to stay, enjoy the... More

I stayed there with my parents. The owners are really ill mannered people. I got trapped when I read good reviews before booking online. After the pathetic experience, I checked the review thread again and I realized only foreigners have rated them well while most Indians have had terrible experience. They discriminate Indians in our own country. Yes, that's true.... More

Being out of the centre of the city was lovely as it was so peaceful but it did mean that we had to book tuk tuks for every last thing. Raj was very helpful and hooked us up with a tuk tuk driver who was brilliant; speedy yet safe, had a great knowledge of the city and didn't try to... More

We were initially planned to stay only one night, just to see Taj Mahal. Unfortunately, Taj Mahal closed on every Friday! We already told Raj to arrange a taxi for next day but we had to change our plan and ended up staying here for two nights. I was so worry about how to rearrange all as now we wanted... More

Booked this after looking at all the reviews and had high expectations. It's a well-maintained home with rooms to spare. Rooms are neat. Location is a bit tricky...one is bound to lose ones way particularly if going late evenings. Service is bare minimum as there are only a couple of hands and we are told they leave by late evening.... More

There was no room service whatsoever, the breakfast was Omlette toast and Real orange juice, on asking for towels we were made to wait on the pretext that there may not be any more towels, Mr Rajbansh misguided us to leave early to Delhi on the Holi celebration day stating that people pelt stones on Yamuna Highway, bullcrap!
