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... More

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... More

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.

We were only in Varanasi for one night, but the hotel staff themselves made sure it was two day's worth of fun and amazing experiences. The hotel itself is clean and calm, away from the busy Indian streets but a stone's throw away from the spiritual Assi Ghat. The highlight of this place, however, is Ajay; the in-house tour guide....

Firstly the couple of down things. Noisy air conditioning unit in my room. It meant turning it on and off during the night, which resulted in a disturbed night's sleep. It could do with a good servicing. I stayed 7 night's and there was only one service clean of the room the entire time. A bit more regularly would be... More

We had a wonderful stay, very friendly staff, clean and resonably priced, great food and the best chai in India. Hotel is very close to the action but just set back so you get a very quiet and peaceful rest. We will be back, thanks for all your help.

Room was ok, quite clean and as expected. All the facilities were as advertised. The walking tour is a great idea, and the guide Ajay was really nice. He took us on the boat tours (1000 rupees for a private sunrise and sunset tour). That was fantastic and a great viewing point away from the madness. He also took us... More

We stayed at Hotel Ganesha for 5 nights during the annual Dhrupad Mela (classical music festival). The location is convenient (5 min. to 10 min. walk to Tulsi and Assi ghats). It's also reasonably quiet since it's not right on a main road. The rooms are basic but clean and the showers have hot water 24 hrs. We stayed in... More
