This hotel is an excellent option when visiting Varanasi. Staff is friendly, even if sometimes they look overwhelmed. The hotel is on the Assi Ghat, located well outside the very busy ones near main Ghat. The rooms are nice, all having a small veranda facing the Ganges. However the rooms are outdated and the bed are not so comfortable. The...

We absolutely loved this hotel. It is a heritage building that overlooks the Ganges. The room was lovely with comfortable beds. The bathroom was fine although the hand basin taps were 'interesting'. The food at lunchtime and dinner time was absolutely delicious. I recommend the Lime and Soda too, a good thirst quencher. The staff are delightful, very helpful and...

The breakfast was very I choose the indian food) as well as the lunch. If you want to enjoy the view of...

Obviously stars don't mean the same in India - or at least in Varanasi - as they do elsewhere. This hotel doesn't even come close to what we imagined based on its star rating and on its Lonely Planet review. I can't for the life of me fathom what the reviewer was thinking when he wrote so enthusiastically about this...

This was one of the splurge stays of our trip, and I'm glad I went for it, heeding Lonely Planet's advice to book early. I communicated with the hotel via email for weeks before our stay, a little nervous that a spoken reservation would fall through the cracks or result in a less desired room, but they delivered on their...

Varanasi is Indian culture in the raw so it was nice to escape to Hotel Ganges View beside Assi Ghat. We had a comfortable upstairs room with access to large public balcony with views over the Ganges. Lovely vegetarian dinners served as a buffet, all guests dining at the same time. You can easily get a boat in front on...

There is so much going for this hotel, its location, the charming authentic decor, the lovely terraces filled with pot plants but a few things would make it so much better. Firstly cleanliness, our bathroom was never properly cleaned and the bed linen could have been better. There seemed to be a large number of male staff mostly hanging around...

Delightful, characterful, ideally located, warm/welcoming guest house, enriched by fine art, amazing flowers, great views and lovely outside nooks and crannies to watch and read. Would've been an easy straight 5 stars with hot water for showers.

Great old building with beautiful and fascinating rooms. Lots of indoor and outdoor public areas to sit and read or take in the view of Assi Ghat and the Ganges beyond. The staff were very warm and helpful. Our rooms were clean, large and charming.
