We found this space after having a bad experience with airbnb that was so disappointing. From the pictures you will notice that this is definitely a very nice mansion to live in. But the best part is the family running this homestay. Anand's family of all three generations really took care of us. We were basking in their hospitality, my...

The above title is taken from the Homestay business card - we are pleased to confirm that it is completely correct! The mansion is set in a reasonably peaceful area away from the noise and confusion of Agra. We were made welcome from the beginning and shown to a large room which offered air-con plus two ceiling fans. There was...

Everything there was really nice and home-y. The rooms were really spacious, and they were so pretty- we had a loft in our room, and they had floating stairs, which were so cool. The outlets and everything worked fairly well, and they had really good wi-fi. Towels were provided, which was nice; however, the toilet didn't work too well, and...

Our high school group from the United States stayed here while in Agra and the stay could not have been more pleasant. The family was very hospitable and really opened up their home to us. It is nice to have a place that feels like home when you have a group of students who are far away from theirs. Thank...

Lets set the priorities right. What do we expect in a homestay? If one is looking for some of the offering that comes with hotels like 24 hrs eatery, swimming pool etc this is not the place. This is a place which is perfectly like your home among all the madness that Agra has to offer. We had been in...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
TEJI'S AWTAR MANSION is named after SARDAR AWTAR SINGH ANAND, the patriarch of the Anand Family; and his son SARDAR TAJINDER SINGH ANAND fondly known amongst family and friends as TEJI; who bought this bungalow from the British in 1947 after Independence. The bungalow, located at the heart of Agra Cantonment, originally had more than 80 rooms. Over the years, it has been renovated to meet the changing needs of the family and now stands in its present form. SARDAR AWTAR SINGH ANAND came to Agra in late 1930's from Rawalpindi [now in Pakistan] on transfer as Additional Garrison Engineer in Military Engineering Services. After India became independent in 1947 he left service to start his own construction firm under the name of AWTAR SINGH & SONS which went on to become a very well reputed construction agency. He was a highly respected member of the society and a devout Sikh. During his life time he was honored by changing the name of the road on which AWTAR MANSION is located from Pensioners Road to SARDAR AWTAR SINGH ANAND ROAD in 1960, a rare honour for any living person.
