I think Agra is a difficult place to negotiate and we were fairly happy with our choice here. First the space: We found the room comfortable and clean and thoughtfully decorated. We were warm and didn't go without anything. It was fairly good value for money for the city I think. We were provided with breakfast at any time which... More

The interiors of all the rooms are very aesthetically done. And the rooftop is a lively place due to all the greenery and terracotta artifacts. Breakfast is simple and... More

If you travel to Agra, I recommand you to stay at this nice guest house. Good prices, very friendly staff, and the owner can book you a driver for the day. By the way, the guest house is not far from the 3 main touristic sites (Agra fort, Taj Mahal, baby Taj).

We were welcomed by the property owner's family and soon they guided us to a room of our choice on the top floor. We had our lunch prepared by Vimlesh, who was a great help during our stay.
