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...More
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...More

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.

I have to say that I found India a very safe place to visit and at no time felt uncomfortable. However we were two men travelling together and therefore cannot say exactly what it is like as a female traveller although I believe my wife would have felt very comfortable if she had been travelling with me. On the whole Indians appear very respectful and I don't believe that you will have any particular problem. In respect of your belongings in your room, the hotel seemed secure but as with any sort of travel, if you can't put valuables in a safe then I would suggest you keep them on you at all times.
