We had the pleasure to be hosted by Mr Burman and his wonderful staff.
There is no words to say thank you for everything they did for us and for our daughters. Mr Burman went above and beyond our expectations to make us feel at home, and welcoming at all times. Even further once in Varanasi, Mr. Burman contacted one of his local tourist friends who help us around there as well.
The apartment was very clean and neat at all times, breakfast was very well served, and they always presented some sort of new indian dish for us to try, beside the continental and american breakfast.
Location wise, is around the corner from Pizza Hut, close to public transportation and local attractions, been the Taj Mahal at not longer than 2km
If you have any questions or concerns don't hesitate to contact him directly you won't regret been at Bansi Guest House.
This guesthouse was wonderful! The owner and manager went out of their way to make us feel at home. We enjoyed dinner and breakfast there, as well as afternoon tea and cookies. The guide they recommended was courteous and very knowledgeable and the driver had a brand new car with air conditioning. Everyone was helpful and polite. We really enjoyed our stay!
Very happy with this reservation. Dinesh made us feel really welcome and told us the best way to make use of our limited time there. The room was huge, the picture doesnt do it justice. Overall a fantastic trip and wonderful hosts. They even gave my wife a gift as well which was much appreciated
Mr. Burman and his associate (probably related) made us feel very comfortable. They extended all possible help to make our entry into their premises comfortable. A person helped us with parking. Another helped us with water and tea. While we were settling in, the check in was pushed to later so that we could quickly go and freshen up. OUr hosts checked up on our plan and offered suggestions for our next days trip. THe property was experienced in the same way as listed and it is conveniently located. Rooms / bathrooms are lovely..... we relaxed and our objective of breaking our journey at this homestay was met
Dinesh was great. The check in process was painless and the daily breakfast was a fantastic touch. The location was close to major sights in Agra. Dinesh was also kind enough to personally find a ride for me back to New Delhi.
Dinesh's 'home stay' in Agra was quite a warm and welcoming experience! The first thing I can say about staying here was the home cooked meal, which was the best meal I had in India. Dinesh Kumar Burman and his brother, both retired from the Indian Tourism divisions of the Indian government - run the homestay here somewhat as a hobby and for 'the love of it'. They are dream hosts and Dinesh also has more information about what to do and not do in India than anyone else. Five stars all around - I look forward to staying at Bansi homestay my next trip to India!
I highly recommend this place, it is not only clean and very comfortable, but the host is fantastic. They really went out of their way to make us feel comfortable. The room is absolutely gorgeous and the food was better than expected. I have traveled extensively throughout India as I am married to an Indian, and this is one of the nicest places I have stayed at. Make sure to ask how to use the electrical outlets though as that can be a bit tricky.
Unfortunately I was only able to stay one evening but will return hopefully many more times!
