“Wonderful Stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 July 2014


We had a wonderful stay at Bansi Home Stay. The room was very clean, spacious and confortable. Personnel was really helpful and really nice.
They prepared us a wonderful breakfast with eggs, potatoes, toasts, jam... we were offered both an Indian breakfast and a European one :)
I highly recommend this place.
The owner made sure he offered us the best service!
I'll be happy to go back!

Bansi homestay is very professional and the owner knows about everything, they will try hard to take dinner or lunch at homestay if you dont want also, there is no parking space for the cab to park, rooms are clean and well maintained decor is excellent like a hotel, mr burman the owner is very nice and knowledgeable though he never give you privacy always around you this makes me little uncomfortable, rest taj mahal is near walking distance staff is polite and only works on the command of mr burman.

Dear Guest,
thank you for taking out the time for writing a review for the home stay. I am sorry that your privacy was disturbed. I live in the same house and if you come down from the room then I am afraid you have to see me. I am sure your room was quite and no one even knocked it or disturbed you. Next time when you will come I will try to be invisible. As you rightly said that the staff
is polite but I beg to differ on the command part of it. They are like family to me and have been together for decades. I am obliged to the nice impressions you have about the home stay. And assure you of the best attention as per your liking in the next visit of yours.

My room was nearly bigger than my own apartment! Lovely modern finish and a great rain shower. I was only there for a short stop over to see the Taj Mahal. It's a pity as I was welcomed like one of the family. I had dinner at the home stay (vegetarian thali and saffron ice cream!) and the largest breakfast ever! It just kept coming! I felt like I was living in a palace. I didn't venture outside the room but it seemed to have some restaurants and coffee shops around if you wanted to dine elsewhere and there were some sari/silk shops nearby.

We stayed in Agra for two days and Mr. Burman & the whole team of Bansi Homestay made our stay memorable. The room & bathroom were very nice, modern, spacious and clean. We felt like home far away from our home. The food was excellent (especially the home made pickles) and the staff was always more than friendly and very obliging. We enjoyed Mr. Burmans company and the nice chats during breakfast and dinner time. Mr. Burman and his great knowledge about Agra & the region was very helpful. We really felt treated like friends.
Many thanks for your great hospitality!!

Very welcoming homestay. The home cooked food was excellent. This was certainly the cleanest place we stayed in India. They arranged a day tour for us and the price was actually reasonable without us having to haggle(!). It was a relaxing stay.

What a truly wonderful experience. When we told our driver to take us to the Bansi Homestay his face lit up with delight, he told us we chose very good accommodation, when we arrived both Mr and Mrs Burman, the team at Bansi Homestay and their unforgettable attention to detail along with the food, the room and the cleanliness was all beyond any expectation we may have had! Mrs Burman shared her traditional homemade Indian recipes with me, Mr Burman loaded us with tips and information for our future travel plans. We felt so well looked after. The only problem was that we weren't staying long enough! We will absolutely be back, to our new friends, we look forward to seeing you again and we cannot thank you enough for the warm and wonderful introduction you gave us to India! With many thanks, David and Brodie
