Reviewed 20 July 2014

Had a lovely stay at Bansi during our trip to Agra. Literally an oasis amongst the heat and bustle of the city. The room was spacious and clean and the staff very friendly and attentive. We didn't have dinner but the Indian breakfast was delicious and enjoyed a nice chat with the owner Mr Burman.

As soon as we arrived, We were ushered into our cool AC room (outside temp reached 42C). Burman(owner) had his driver take us to a hand picked immaculately clean restaurant for our late lunch. His right hand man could not do enough for you- professional, accommodating ad always with a smile. ( I am sorry for not writing his name down) . Quiet location, easy drive to The Taj and other restaurants. Rooms were very spacious and quiet. I would definitely recommend staying here! Although not sure if there is an elevator for those who cannot take stairs.

Dear Guest,
thank you for the nice review. It was Mr Kohli who was there in my absence. We do not have elevators. But I offer our ground floor room for the old and the infirm. Once again thank you the kind review.

It was a great staying at Bansi's. The stay was perfect, I was lucky to have gotten it on last min. Thanks to Mr.Burman (the host) for being super quick and being very co-ordinating.

The staff is very helpful and friendly as-well :)

The property is more beautiful than it appears to be in the pictures. Very clean and hygienic.

They serve some delicious breakfast which adds up-to the experience.

Recommend staying here.

This has been one of the best places we have stayed at during our trip to India. The room was huge and very comfortable. We had supper there as well which was really tasty (recommended). We met and chatted to lots of other guests during breakfast as well as the owner who was very friendly and knowledgable.

Burman, our host, was very welcoming and shared a lot of information about the area and touring tips. When we arrived, we were very hungry from a long journey from Jaipur and he quickly prepared a quick snack for us, including some wonderful mango ice cream! Breakfast was plentiful and nicely prepared. Our room was fantastic - and the bed was THE best of all our 4 week tour....soft and comfortable. It was a very pleasant surprise after sleeping on hard and impossibly hard beds for four nights previously! Definitely stay at this one if traveling to Agra - home of the Taj Mahal.

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.
