Pyrenees Homestay

Reviewed January 5, 2014

The place is located at only a few minutes drive from the Taj Entrance. We arrived at the property after driving from New Delhi late in the evening. We only had one night at Agra so decided to see the Agra fort on the first afternoon before checking in at the property. Upon arrival at the property, the owner greeted us personally and was gracious enough to upgrade us to a different set of rooms, with one of them having an attached dining area. Since we were a family of four (and a half) the dining room gave us the privacy to enjoy the dinner and the breakfast the following morning with all of us sitting around one table. Our stay was short but it was comfortable. Definitely recommended for families, specially those travelling with children.

I've booked my room really last minute before I took the train. Wen I arrived, the door room was full so the owner gave me a very nice room for the same price and I changed the next day. The owner really helped me to organize my stay in Agra, he gave me good tips without selling me anything. The bedroom / bathroom was clean, I had also breakfast there in the rooftop with a nice view and at a cheap price. The GH is like 10min with a rickshaw to go to Taj Mahal and like 15min to Agra fort.
A good place to stay in Agra for low budget and few time. Thanks Kamal!

We arrived late due to a delayed train. We booked for two nights a month before arrival and informed the hotel about our delay, but at our arrival the owner told us our room was unavailable due to overbooking. He offered an upgraded "deluxe" room as it was a gift, but we had to switch to another room the next day on a two night stay. Furthermore the room we got wasn't deluxe: there was no window, no hot water, the toilet was leaking and soaking the whole bathroom floor, the bed was hard and it was ice cold. During the night and the next morning there were continuous disturbing noises of neighboring rooms/houses (snoring, gargling and spitting). Luckily thew restaurant served a good curry, the only good thing during our short stay. The next morning we checked out as soon as we woke up to rake a fresh shower and refreshing nap at another hotel. Not recommended!

unfortunately, i cannot understand why this place had received do many good recommendations. i was pretty shocked when i saw the place, because it was extremely dirty. after they had prepared the room, it showed that it is a typical Indian run down guesthouse. however, it diea not seem as if they put any effort in letting it appear nicely: some walls miss colour and the bathroom hasn't been cleaned for ages. also, the hot shower is everything but hot. true the owner is nice, Burr one odd the type, who finds an excuse for everything. i have stayed at a lot better places for the same amount of money.

A good and inexpensive place to stay while visiting the Taj Mahal, which is just a 20 minute walk from the guesthouse. The bed and rooms are tidy and clean, and the addition of a rooftop restaurant was very convenient and good value for money. However the real reason to choose this place is the service, which was excellent; All the staff were friendly and helpful. The manager was especially accommodating and welcoming, putting in the extra effort to look after the boarders' needs. Would recommend to anyone looking for a stay in Agra.

SalutKamal, the owner, has been a patient and warm host. The first night, I required a bigger room with a TV so he helped me to move my stuff.

I was expecting to live and share moments with a family but Kamal explained me that his son has so much energy that he received complains so now his family lives in another place close to the guest house. So he proposed me to go there! It has been a real pleasure spending my evening overthere, eating the good food of his wife and getting surprise by the good English of his 3 years old kid.

Thank you for respecting the spirit of guest house by opening the door of your home and enriching the experience of the travellers.

Room Tip: If you want a "big" room, request the one with the balcony.

This is a nice budget option. They can easily arrange a tuktuk for you and help you with your travel questions which was nice. Rooms are clean, showers are so-so and the food is trial and error. I recomend the muesli which is very good.
