Budget friendly homestay in Agra

With over 4,000 guests from over 60 countries worldwide this homestay already has a respected name amongst world travelers. Credit for this achievement goes to Col. Lamba's uncompromising manner of functioning. An affable and enterprising man Col. Lamba goes out of his way to ensure the convenience and safety of his guests. He has a strong network of trustworthy people who pick up guests for sightseeing and shopping from the home itself and who are discouraged from extending unsolicited advice. His soft spoken wife Pushpinder supervises the kitchen and the housekeeping staff. The Lambas serve an extensive array of truly delectable vegetarian dishes that have charmed guests to consider becoming vegetarian.

Since most tourist destinations in Agra close by 5 P.M, Col. Lamba has gone the extra mile to provide entertainment for his guests. There are televisions in all four guest room as well as in the communal areas and a wide selection of reading material. The two-level terrace offers a view of the Magnificent Taj and a 360 degree view of the city. All the rooms have personal bathrooms that are spacious and well-maintained though not all are ensuite.

The home is a thirty minute drive from the Agra Cantonment railway Station and a little over 3 kilometers from the Taj Mahal. As the Taj Mahal, Agra Fort and Baby Taj are relatively close by one can cover them easily in two days. He can also guide you to places where the famous Slumdog Millionaire was shot. And give you insights about lesser known attractions of the city like the Mughal Heritage Walk. With such a wealth of information, experience and enthusiasm there's little wonder that this homestay has received the Top Rated Hostel Award two years in a row.
