We stayed at hotel Ganesha in order to visit Varanasi for two days and see the main sites. The hotel staff made this very easy by arranging everything for us and taking us on a walking tour of the city to see the temples and the oldest part of Varanasi. They also arranged an evening and morning boat ride on...

There is no kitchen or food available, the staff is not friendly chekout time was 10 am we requested for 1 hr extension but were not allowed to stay. The location is near assi ghat but without any car parking and the road is too narrow for car to even wait for 10 mins.

The good thing is it is close to the river. But there are no views from the rooms, all of which open to show the walls of other buildings, as the hotel is in a walled up lane. However, the rooms are really clean and nice, sheets are washed and ironed, though towels could look brighter. The bathrooms are clean,...

Room was nice and super clean. Internet and hot water did not work half of the time and the tv was broken. Staff was ok, but the manager was very rude and unfriendly. Worst management i have ever seen after 6 month traveling in india.

They try to maintain the facilities, but what do you think? They can't be be as good as Clark's. Medium budget - must visit. TVs are the old bulky ones, but they have it. Free WiFi stops working mostly. But they have very clean toilets. They are obviously packed from all sides, that means you are safe from the outside...

Hotel Ganesha is located close to Assi Ghat. Being away from the hustle and bustle , it soothes the nerves after all the tremendous noise of Varanasi main streets. Being located in a narrow lane, the honking is much less. Room though small was clean with clean linen. Bathroom was quite clean. Hotwater supply has been augmented with additional geysers...

This hotel is close to the Assi Ghat. Liked the nightly Gange River ceremonies. I would like to express my gratitude to the hotel for Ajay Pandey"s guide through the streets of Varanasi.
