“Lovely peaceful setting close to the Taj Mahal”
Reviewed 12 March 2017

A friendly homestay with a beautiful garden and comfortable colourful rooms that is literally just a short walk from the Taj Mahal. The owners are very welcoming, helpful and informative. Delicious communal meals

This is truly a home away from home!
The homestay has a beautiful garden with birds and squirrels. Unlike most of busy Agra, the most often heard sounds are bird calls.

Taj is about 1km away. Walkable distance. You can even see the Taj dome from the rooftop.

Breakfast changes daily and is always tasty and wholesome, with both western and Indian cooking styles.

Rooms are comfortable, spacious, well ventilates with fans and AC. Rooms have clean authentic indian linen and are mosquito free. The bathrooms have clean western toilets. The showers don't have any stains...

Best of all are the staff and owners, Pratiba and Vandna, who always had a smile and were patient, providing any assistance needed.

We booked cooking lessons and really enjoyed it. They teach you patiently and with hands on training. We even received a spice basket when requesting.

We highly recommend this homestay instead of a hotel. You have the comfort of a hotel with the friendliness of a family home. Big bonus!

If you want to shut yourself away from India, this is not the place to go.

If you want to be minutes from the Taj Mahal, sit in a beautiful garden, talk to fellow tourists, use free wifi, and eat lovely dinners at an amazingly price, this is the place for you.

Basic but, comfortable rooms, quiet despite its location.

Breakfast (on our return from sunrise at the Taj) was plentiful and very tasty.

This homestay is colourful and comfortable, each en suite room being unique with several sit-out areas. The owners and staff were delightful and the food served was really tasty. With the location being within walking distance of the Taj Mahal it was a great place to stay - would certainly recommend The Coral Tree.

They kept dinner for us until 8.15 as we had been to the theatre. It was worth the wait good home cooked food and even got gin and tonic and wine!!
Bedroom sheets smelled lovely and room was bright and colourful. Shower and toilet very clean.
Our hostess was very kind and welcoming.
Shame we only had one night. A definite if you are going to Agra!!

Room Tip: We had No 9 and was great. All other travelers were very happy.
