We stayed for one night in April this year, having been recommended by my colleague. Mr Burman and his team made us very welcome and at home. The food was very good and the room was comfortable and spacious. The conversation over breakfast was enjoyable. Mr Burman also provided invaluable help in the travel logistics getting to and from Agra....

Bansi Home Stay was a lovely and calm choice for Agra. The owner, D.K. Burman, was friendly, warm and intelligent - we enjoyed our conversation with him, and wished it could have been longer. Our room was comfortable and quiet, with a garden terrace that is shared with another room on the same floor. Breakfast was great! In a busy...

As I leave Bansi Homestay for the second time at 6.15am, hot chai is waiting for us and a pack of food for our train trip to Haridwar. I am reminded why this is my most favourite place to stay in Agra and one of my favourites in India. This is the second time I have stayed at Bansi (and...

We stayed for 2 nights while visiting the Taj Mahal. The entire city is devoted to tourism so you feel a little harassed at times. This hotel was good, clean, and they let us have a quick shower after the check out. You kind of feel like you are just another tourist coming though, but I guess this is normal...

Bansi Homestay is a wonderful option for a stay in Agra. The room was clean and spacious and the homemade meals were fantastic. One morning for breakfast, Mr. Burman even got jalebis for us. If you are interested in history, you will find Mr. Burman an incredible resource. We has worked in tourism and has an extensive knowledge of the...

From the accommodating and professional emails that were my first interaction with Mr. Burman, to the Chai we shared when we arrived, to his help organizing a driver to our next city, everything while we stayed at Bansi was amazing.
