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.)

Gret and east escape in Agra

Posted 08-Jul-2013 on Hotels.com
An unbelievably nice couple runs this b&b with the help of their sons. After traveling a month in India we wanted a homely experience to see the Taj in amidst the touristy hype of Agra. We definitely felt at home here. Home cooked food was delicious. They helped coordinate our tuk-tuk rides and taxis.....and made our one-night stay easy. The power went out for about an hour (typical for India) and they were incredibly accommodating and had a generator with wi-fi/room lights working. Would definitely recommend. Note - in gated community.

Great Hospitality

Posted 07-Jun-2013 on Hotels.com
The Service was definitely excellent. The owner bought food on our behalf from outside when it was quite late at night and gave us a tour book during our stay. He advised us on a manageable itinerary during our stay and helped bargain with our taxi driver. The location is beyond walking distance to the Taj Mahal, especially in the hot weather but only 5-10mins in a taxi. The breakfast tasted nice and we had it in our room. Rooms were clean but shower could do with renovating as the sink was wobbly and there was no fan in the toilet so it was hot in there. The TV had no reception so it was not watchable. Definitely worth staying for the price and high level of hospitality which overlooks everything else.

Great price -Friendly Family

Posted 13-Apr-2013 on Hotels.com
The family that run the home-stay are very friendly and nothing seems to much for them. They gave us great advice on the local sights/ markets etc. The food was good too - a reasonably large menu with international options and quite cheap. We had lunch dinner and breakfast here and it was all excellent (especially the dinner). We were upgraded on arrival to a family suite which was very spacious, clean and tidy. The only downside to this place is that it is a little further out from most of the other hotels in Agra. I'd say it was worth it though.

Not Like the Taj

Posted 08-Feb-2013 on Hotels.com
From a positive point of view we would say an effort was made to please. It was not always fulfilled. There was an offer for free pickup and breakfast provided. We were not pleased for reasons such as; our bed was not changed when we arrived and checked that night. Even the pillowcases were dirty and appeared slept on. The room cleaning was great in the middle of the room but don't look into the corners. We stayed for five days but received no house keeping in that time. Breakfast was ok but there was an extra charge for the second cup of coffee or tea. We found the place in a very noisy location with much dog barking, horns honking, construction noise and people shouting. The location is far from any attraction. We had also over paid the host but were able to retrieve less than half of the over paid amount.

A warm and inviting place

Posted 15-Mar-2012
I stayed here for 3 days and had a very nice experience. Sai Home Stay is located in a neighborhood so you get a really different view of Indian life. The owner and his wife are very warm and inviting. They know all the places that you will want to visit including some that are off the beaten path. Other pluses are great food, a good beer selection and a rooftop dining area.
