Nice Host...but

Posted 19-Dec-2014
Pros: The people who ran the place were very nice.
Cons: Everything. The place needs some money spent on it to bring it up to standard.
Location: Out of the way and not a lot to do nearby.
This was our first homestay in India and we were disappointed. The people who ran the place were very nice and made you feel welcome. The room is very, very basic. The shower does not exist. it is but a trickle of water that comes out and it is only tepid. There is an iron lean to on the first floor and all night you get monkeys jumping onto it and it keeps you awake. Solution is that they should remove the lean to as it serves no useful purpose. The breakfast was very mediocre. It is out of the way and if you don't have your own transport, you will need to use a taxi to go anywhere.

An ok stay

Posted 07-Dec-2014
Location: Pretty close to Taj Mahal
The home stay it's fine and with a cosy atmosphere. The owner will give you plenty of useful tips to plan your days. Rooms are overall ok, but nothing amazing. Regarding shower and hot water I suggest you not to leave it for too late in the evening. Regarding food and beverages, the lady cooks every evening lovely dishes...but still, it's quite expensive considering that is vegetarian, that they make up the menu and that you have to eat when it's decided to cook

Cozy and welcoming atmosphere

We stayed here last week for one night while in Agra. We arranged for a driver to pick us up from the train station. He was punctual and courteous. The owner Kunal and his family were lovely. Each night has a free breakfast. We also opted to have dinner that evening. You pay extra for it, but a fair price for the quality. My husband and I still say it was one of the top meals we had in India. Our room was clean and quite spacious. It's not within walking distance to the Taj or other attractions, but not a far drive and in an adorable neighborhood. Plus, the room was so inexpensive! We would stay here again!

Poor facilities

No look in bathroom. Price is high compare to hotel. Switchoff the main switch of AC in mid night to make the guest fool

Some good things but not enough to return.

Posted 11-Jan-2014 on Hotels.com
The good thing was the family dinner home cooking aspect of the home stay and willingness to help. BUT the rooms were very cold and no heat available and the showers, once they heated up, were without pressure. I tried to have them solve the heat problem but both of the portable heaters did not have plugs - which surprised me since they have been in the business a long time. It took quite a while to gt this done.My friends did not think the laundry came back very clean. I usually am very happy to recommend good accommodations but not in this case.

Got moved to another hotel

Posted 13-Nov-2013 on Hotels.com
I wish I could say something about Sai Home Stay itself. Unfortunately, they somehow lost our reservation. When we called from our train to arrange a pickup, they couldn't find our reservation and had no room for us. This was incredibly disappointing. However, Rajiv was very nice to us. He booked us in another hotel he runs, arranged for a pickup (the driver was very friendly and ended up being our driver for the next day), and was on hand (via phone) whenever we needed help. (Note: I put 3 for most of the ratings, since "n/a" wasn't available.)
