Perfect place to stay in Agra. This place is conveniently located close to the Taj and down from the main street, so not too noisy. The staff and welcoming and friendly. They will go out of your way to help you, for example, I emailed in advance about the full moon viewing of the Taj and Mr. Burman went out...

We stayed for 3 days, stay was comfortable. Rooms are spacious. Hosts and service was good. Don't expect service of star hotels but they are good and good service. It is walk-able distance from Taj Mahal West gate. Just for information, you have to ask for room cleaning specifically. Overall good experience.

Dear Guest, Thank you for taking the time out to post a review on the Tripadvisor. We are certainly not a hotel but a home stay. Hence we have our limitations. Both in approach and operation wise. Our guests normally ask us for house keeping requirements as per their convenience, so the staff is groomed that way. But this does...

Was lovely to stay here with a great owner, he was always ready for a chat, and to give some advice and is well read and well travelled. We were there on Christmas Day, and he'd got a Christmas cake for us to eat 😀. Rooms are very big, so there's space to spread out and the hot water is...

Bansi Home Stay is a quaint and modest boutique hotel in Agra perfect for a one or two (max) night visit to world known attractions in the area. While the accommodations are fine (surely you can have better with the larger chains in the area if that is a priority for you) the service and "home stay" feel are far...

We stayed with Mr. Burman, who used to be the director of Tourism in Agra, for one night. He welcomed us with a much needed cup of chai and food. He recommended one of the best places to visit to view marble inlays and assisted us with our train travels. His staff were more than accommodating and the rooms were...

Meeting Dinesh and staying at the Bansi Home Stay was a highlight of our trip to India. He was a lovely and gracious host, and helped us have an enjoyable, restful, and relaxing time in India--which was initially quite hard during India's demonetization crisis. We'd highly recommend this place, and its home cooked meals, and spending as much time with...

We arrived at Bansi after a long day driving from Delhi and were greeted with lovely masala tea & homemade cookies. Then followed an amazing dinner prepared by the wonderful cook at this homestay.

We had a supreme and comfortable stay, Bansi provides great hospitality and good breakfast. Rooms are quiet and clean. The owner asked us to celebrate Diwali with his family, which was a great honor for us. We are still thankful for that. If you are in Agra, stay here!
