“Budget Accomodation/ Friendly Staff”
Reviewed 12 January 2014

Hotel is in a quiet residential area. Budget hotel with just 6-7 rooms. Breakfast is simple and basic without choice. But the staff is friendly and very helpful. Area is safe and good place for single ladies. In house restaurant is OK for emergency eating. A sweet shop on the main road is good for buying water, cold drinks and sweets. But their snacks are not recommended for the westerners. Place is OK for 1-2 nights. Idgah Bus and the railway station are nearby. Railway Locomotives honk a lot and one can hear it in the rooms in the night.

This BnB is a cheap and basic option for around $23NZD.

The rooms are large and clean but are rather dark and gloomy.

It is down a quiet road and is away from the busy hustle and bustle of Agra town.

Approximately a 7minute drive to the Taj Mahal.

We stayed only one night to see the Taj Mahal. We booked through Agoda, so the price was very good (17 EUR). The room they gave us was not, what we expected, but ok for 1 night. The hotel is a big house with 7 rooms, few with balcony, some without . Our was with a very small window. The TV was Ok, WIFI – internet didn t work. The bathroom was ok, hot shower with a courtain. They have a big terrace on the top floor, which unfortunatelly had only few dirty chairs. It would be so nice to sit there in the evening. The breakfast was downstairs in the reception area on the big round table – everybody is sitting together - and was included in the room price (omlete, cofffee, toast). The hotel is in nice, quiet area.

Room Tip: They have some rooms with a balcony - those are good, we stayed ia a room with a small window, but i...

We stayed at Taj Homestay for two nights in Oct 2013. It was an absolutely wonderful experience as the hotel in very clean, safe and affordable. The accommodation is really a bargain for the price and most importantly the place is just 5 minutes’ drive from Taj Mahal.

The staff at the hotel were very courteous and overall service was very good. Special mention for kitchen and room service as whenever we ordered food we got it in less than 15 minutes.

Great location in the quiter Agra residential area, only 10 min from Taj Mahal. Tarun and Staff were most hospitable & informative in helping us plan out car & local sight seeing. Thanks Tarun & all at Taj home stay.

Far from the Taj, ok food, ok service. Dirty rooms, towels were stained and smelled like cigarettes. This is a favorite of tour bookers in India, must have a great arrangement with the hotel. Not worth it, stay somewhere else.

What a dump! Lights were a maze to turn on, tv didn't work, staff where rude when you could find them, food was ok, phone didn't work.
The main guy on reception got annoyed if you didn't tip or tip enough which shouldn't be mandatory and with his attitude he was lucky to get any at all!
