A beautiful heritage building just overlooking the ghat. You arrive there by boat because there is no other way. Once inside, from the terrace, you embrace the quiet majesty of the Holy River. Then at night, traditional Indian music and Katak dance make you feel definitely elsewhere, for sure in the right place. The staff is really nice and attentive,...

Hotel staff polite and helpful.. Room smelt damp, wifi ok, no alcohol licence, indoor restaurant small so need to book ahead if you want to be inside, food was good. Had breakfast overlooking Ganges as the sun came up. Not hotels fault​ but river appallingly polluted all manner of rubbish floating by together with dead partially burnt bodies from the...

A dream come true experience! A dramatic entry by boat, fabulous warm welcome on arrival at an ungodly hour on cold morning, ever smiling staff made the stay comfortble. The view of the river from the room is the USP of the property.

I agree with the previous reviews, the hotel is beautifully located with stunning views. Our room on the 3rd floor was light although on the small side and smelt a but damp. Hot water, a/c and WiFi all erratic but food was good in the lovely rooftop restaurant. I would definitely recommend it for a night or two but not...

Lovely location overlooking the Ganges. You can see the early morning sun from across the river and beautiful rays entering your room. Though they have renovated this old building, the old charm still remains of this heritage property. Good staff.

I am giving Jukaso Ganges 4 stars because of its unique location--situated on the Ganges in Varanasi, an extremely interesting city. That said, it did have drawbacks that I notice have been mentioned in other reviews. Our room was spacious, but it had an almost overwhelming odor of mildew/mold and we were told it's because the building is so old...

first of all it is very hard to think of a better location, right on the Ganges in an historical building. Second, it was nice to be met by staff who were helpful and polite. thirdly the boat trip to the hotel was full of atmosphere, an unforgettable experience. Fourth - the food - simple and adequate. Those are the...

This is not a backpacker hotel. But it was the most perfect place to end our tour of India. The only hotel on the Ganga that can only be reached by boat. That starts the adventure. The greeting as you leave the ghat and enter the hotel is royal. From that point the staff are deeply respectful, and once engaged...

I and wife stayed at the Hotel for 2 nights. The Hotel is right on the Ganges. Great views of the river banks. Close by is most of the temples and famous ghats. The Hotel staff was very courteous. The complimentary boat ride to Visit the Ganga Aarti was wonderful . The hotel has a unique Heritage. Enjoyed the evening...

This might be the most unique place that we've ever stayed in. Located right on the Guleria Ghat overlooking the Ganges river, the best way to get to the hotel is by boat. About a 15 minute gentle ride up the Ganges affords you a great view of the centuries old architecture and all the many ghats lining the river....
