Reviewed 24 June 2013

Contrary to a few previous reviews, I can vouch that the owner is extremely friendly, accommodating and helpful and was very keen to make sure my stay at Garden Villa and Agra was a good one.

The rooms are absolutely immaculate and very comfortable indeed - one of the most comfortable beds/pillows in all my time in India. I would say that the room would be akin to a four star hotel. Warm water, fluffy towels, a complimentary bottle of chillded water on arrival, AC and TV all made it very enjoyable.

I was asked if I would like to join the family for dinner, with some other guests who were staying (for 300 Rupees extra). It was an absolutely delicious meal and I highly recommend taking up this option. Breakfast was sumptuous the next day.

Although the location is not particularly central, the owner is happy to arrange taxis and rickshaws (he kindly organised a man to pick me up from the station, who was waiting with a sign for me) for very reasonable rates.

I would highly recommend Garden Villa for people going to stay in Agra!

We traveled to Agra recently and we picked Garden Villa Homestay. It was great staying there even though we stayed for 2 nights only. We picked the rooms with AC and it was clean and service was great. We were also provided with great information about sights to see in Agra. Mr Rajbansh is very knowledgeable and he helped us in planning the trip. It's very close to Taj Mahal (just 15 minutes away) and our whole stay was great.

This homestay is good for students who are used to staying in hostels with a strict and stern warden. Actually, the name should be changed to Garden Villa Hostel. We called up Mr. Raj to arrange for dinner and he said since its late and we had to make our own arrangements for dinner. He did not have any courtesy. No politeness while talking. We agreed, had our dinner outside and reached the hostel. He charged us for water. The next day for breakfast, there was only few breads and jam. And, he decided the places to sit for breakfast..ridiculous. My son, aged 3.5 was running around. Mr. Raj didnt like it.

The worst part was we paid Rs. 100 for water. And Raj prompty returned Rs. 40 (all 10 Re coins). I got in the car and after some time i checked the change. Mr. Raj has given me two 10Re coins and two 2 euros coins. The euros were in between the 10 Re coins. He could have informed us that he dint have the change. Why this atttitude towards people? My stay for couple of hours was like staying in a hostel with no air to breathe in..

If you have kids, better to stay away from this place. Please keep proper change else you may get couple of euros.

It was a good, basic place to stay in Agra. A little hard to find but that seems to be normal in India.

The host was helpful in planning the timing of our trip to the Taj.(We opted for sunrise before it gets too hot).

An oasis of brilliant flowers to welcome you. A really nice place to stay, comfortable and quiet and the rooms are excellent. Our host and family were all charming and hospitable - we like homestays in India but this was a particularly good one. Food delicious.

Highly recommended
