The room was clean, especially as many people mentioned, the staffs are very kind and friendly, In the lobby, you can not only use free wi-fi, but also be able to meet and talk with tourists from different countries. I recommend this place to who would like feel like staying at home in India.

This accommodation is close to the Taj Mahal, like 15 minutes walking. The best of our stay was the staff there. The boys that are working there are really nice and helpful, they called the rickshaw when we needed it to go to the train station and managed to have a good price for us. The place is clean and...

Being a five minute walk from the Taj itself is only the first of Kingston's great qualities. The staff are great: helpful, knowledgeable, humorous, and not overbearing or out to scam you. The rooms are big with big mirrors, a TV and full bathrooms! By far the cleanest hotel you can find! If you get a chance to meet the... More

We had great expectations from this place after reading the reviews. But it was total disappointment. Although in the middle of the city... this place is not even worth Rs.100/-. The rooms were very very shabby, very untidy.. We had arrived in agra at around 7:00 p.m and we had to ask the front desk people to clean up the... More

Kingston Home Stay is a small friendly place that is clean and comfortable. It has everything you need at a fraction of the inflated prices of other hotels in Agra. The owner could not be more helpful and will arrange anything you need whilst in Agra, and also for your onward journey. Situated very close to the Taj Mahal it... More
