Its very convenient for the guest to reach this hotel easily and also its so easier to go to Jaipur for deluxe a/c buses from near by this hotel , idgah bus station walkable distance, if you inform the hotel early they will arrange the bus ticket also while your stay for jaipur , try to call the transportation your own for sightseeing etc. through the hotel , you can negotiate the taxi people directly

Excellent brekfast which we had , nice cozy interior - bathroom was really clean

It is always nice to see a happy face at the welcoming desk so, I was glad to see this was the case at the Taj Home Stay.
The rooms are clean and equipped with all the necessities without going overboard.
The guy I was talking about is named Shiv so do ask for him when you arrive.

On arriving in the homestay (which is more of a guest house than a traditional homestay) we were greated with wide smiles and warmth. However, it seemed when they realised we were backpackers and didn't have bottomless pockets for endless tips they soon soured and did nothing to help us. I even felt like we were treated with scorn when ordering dinner and asking for the wifi password.

The homestay is also in a very undesirable area of Agra as confirmed by our driver who stayed elsewhere. We went out to find some food and were faced with hostility by the locals. We're a white european couple but didn't really expect this. We only stayed one night and were glad to leave the next day.

Would not recommend staying here, But wouldn't really recommend staying in Agra full stop as its not a nice city once you've done Taj Mahal and Red Fort.
