This is by far the best place I stayed in while in India for 3 weeks, and that includes 5 star hotels. The place was purpose-built about 3 years ago so the facilities and layout are fantastic: plenty of inside and outside areas to chill - including rooftop; impeccably clean. The practicalities about staying are all done easily and smoothly - eg taxis, tickets, laundry etc. The staff (ie the family) are very friendly and helpful. The house is centred on the huge dining table which is right beside the big kitchen. This is where I spent most of my time talking to and cooking with Ranjanna (the mother of the family who runs it). I missed some of the sights of Agra as I preferred to spend time in the kitchen! Her food and warmth are fabulous. If you like good food and a homely feel then this is the place for you.

Lovely small family run hotel. Our room had no window, but that was made clear when we booked so no issues, especially as the roof terrace is accessible to all. Very convenient location, easy to walk to the Taj, off the main road, so reasonably quiet by India standards. Friendly, helpful, clean, efficient, and lovely food!

Stayed in Aman Guesthouse for 3 nights as a base for Taj Mahal though if that's all you're doing in Agra you only need 1 night or 2 max. The homestay is in good location and has a lovely rooftop to chill in away from the hustle & bustle of Agra.The guesthouse is very clean and all areas are decorated and furnished to a high standard (especially for india).
Staff were all nice and very helpful booking stuff and onward train tickets. They will arrange for car or tuk tuk to attractions. We chose tuk tuk to go to Taj Mahal which picks you up, drops you off and picks you up again to take you to a fort Etc. The driver is Ricky. We called him Tricky Ricky because, although a bubbly funny guy, he drove us to a back street marble shop which we had no intention of going to. Here it's all very hidden behind a blank facade with loads of men sitting around inside, but you're swiftly shown them making marble stuff then into the showroom to buy from a large selection of ornaments, tables, lights, plates etc. We had no intention of buying anything and left.
Tricky Ricky was obviously not so bubbly because he obviously gets commission from any purchases you make and on this occasion he got nothing.
He changed completely!
This is obviously a scam to earn money from you so be warned.
Aman Guesthouse should be aware of Ricky's tac tics!!!
Food options in the area are varied..we ate at 3 of the well reviewd restaurant's 50 yards from the guest house..'Good Vibes', Bamboo Cafe' and 'Bob Marleys'...none of which were anything special; Edible but all a bit dirty, but then it was Agra and it's pretty grim everywhere there apart from the oasis of the Taj Mahal. My advice..travel in, stay a night, get up early and see the Taj Mahal and then move on.

We spent two days in this nice and cosy homestay run by a very lovely and friendly family. We had the best Thali for lunch served at the rooftop terrace with views to the Taj Mahal when we arrived. It is possible to have dinner together with the other guests, but as we had already made other arrangements we did not try this.
The hotel is situated close to the entrance of Taj Mahal and it is possible to buy tickets from the hotel and save time when you arrive at Taj Mahal. The Family also suggested that we saw the sunset over Taj Mahal from the other side of the river and this was really amazing. This can be reached by rickshaw in about 20 min.

We will highly reccomend Aman Homestay, and if we ever go back to Agra this is where we will stay.

We stayed here for 2 nights in February and thoroughly enjoyed it. Our large room was on the top floor and we loved having the rooftop to relax on. We ate in one night, and had two excellent breakfasts, and liked the communal table although it is also possible to eat privately on the rooftop. They arranged a tuk tuk for one day and a taxi to take us to Fatehpur Sikri and both were good value. Highly recommended.
