The place is a little hard to get to. No taxis get there, nor rickshaws and Google maps puts it somewhere near but not exactly. One must ask- a few times- to get there. It's through the maze of the many Varanasi corridors, which is a must anyways in Varanasi. It's near the main ghats so walking to the 6:30... More

The Hotel staff was very friendly and helpful, can help in everything. Ensure booking of tickets , sightseeing and the attractions. Satisfaction with all services. Hotel is 3 minutes walking to river Ganga gate Dasawanedh. Accomodation coresponds to the price. Wery safe Hotel! It was a good choice, make booking in this Hotel.

This hotel was at the lower end of the price spectrum but it was good value for money. The room was clean, the refrigerator cold and the fan and a/c worked. Not much hot water but it's not required when it's so hot outside. The host helped us to see Varanasi and get to the airport. It was very difficult... More

I don't know how this place has any good reviews. This was by far the worst experience of anywhere we stayed in almost 7 weeks of traveling in India! The price does not reflect this establishment in any way whatsoever! It's complete robbery!!! It is in the old city, so it's a fair walk with your bags from the road... More

We really appreciate your valuable feedback. Dear sir if you are staying on the bank of river Ganges you ll rarely find big rooms.
