Upon my arrival Naghma made me feel at home. It was my first visit to India and I was traveling alone. She welcomed me warmly to her home and her son Shiron helped me get settled in my room and then helped me plan my two days in the Agra area. No problems communicating in English.
First go to Agra Fort, then to the Only Restaurant for lunch, then to Baby Taj, then to Mehtab Bagh (Moonlight Garden) to watch the sunset over the Taj Mahal. Back to N Home stay for dinner... Indian food cooked by Naghma. I was concerned that the food would be too spicy, but it was perfectly yummy. Better than any restaurant!
The next morning 5:30 am sunrise at the Taj Mahal, back to N Home Stay for breakfast, then check out, then to Fatehpur Sikri,and then finally to Akbar's Tomb. A full two day tour of the Agra area.
In the evening, I had trouble with the WiFi connection, but her son Shibab helped me solve the problem. I borrowed an adapter and power strip to plug in my cell phones and laptop.
The room was very nice and comfortable. Private bathroom...for hot showers..remember to turn on the water heater an hour before the shower. Air conditioning worked great Room was comfortable and very clean. Large closets for storage and WiFi in each room. Ceiling fan for more comfort.
The location was hard to find. Go to Amar Hotel area and call N Home Stay for directions from there. I also got a little map via email.
