Rooms, facilities and cleanliness are good. The local area is quiet, secure and within walking distance of the Taj Mahal. The dining area is currently limited to sofas and tables on a landing, with adjacent kitchenette with fridge and microwave available for guest use. When booked, main meals are served from the family kitchen below and the standard is very good. Varun and family were most welcoming, flexible, friendly and informative hosts - always present for a chat and advice at mealtimes. Taxis with English speaking drivers were arranged at fair and pre-agreed rates. The limitations are reflected in the competitive pricing of this excellent base for exploring Agra and its surroundings. (British retired couple mid-sixties).
