    We had a very nice stay at Friends Paying Guest House. They have an inhouse restaurant that serves wonderful foods. They have a rooftop patio overlooked the city of Agra and Taj Mahal. The owner Yusuf is very helpful with the guest. You can buy...More

    It's a good and cheap place with friendly staff. I could really recommend this place! It's close to Taj Mahal, walking distance. It's a little bit hot in the night, but the beds are comfortable. The place has a nice rooftop and a restaurant.
