If you read recent reviews of this hotel you will note quite a few negative reviews. Here's another! We found the staff rude and lacked training. The wifi charges are outrageous. Breakfast is ordinary

This hotel needs a good refurbishment, more importantly the staff need to improve their services and attitude. The WiFi is almost worthless, we were offered a room change after a day and a half as the signal barely reached our room. Only allowed to connect one device also, ridiculous for a paid service.

The hotel looked great on the lobby but the rooms need some refurbishments as things are starting to look dated. However, the room we stayed in was very clean. hot shower was in abundance and bed was comfortable. wifi usage is chargeable. Breakfast spread at the Ballroom was acceptable and lunch spread at 1951 was better than expected. The location...

40 years ago I thought it was the place to be. Not anymore. It is dated, It is damp and the rooms and towels were still damp when placed on the stands. The breakfast was mundane to ordinary. It needs a complete new strategy and rooms need to checked with humidity meter.

This hotel like the Clarks Shiraz in Agra needs serious renovation. Lobby appears pleasant but rooms are worn out. There was even no hot water one night and the excuse was there are often air locks in the piping. Staff are extremely unhelpful especially during the recent money issues in India the staff refused to accept 500 rupees notes and...

We stayed here for a couple of nights and the 500 and 1000 rupees were withdrawn from circulation. As tourists, we have carried several thousand rupiah and wanted to pay our bill in cash...refused. Insisted on credit card.. This is a large business and clearly not the aim of the prime ministers efforts to get at the 'black' economy. They...

Clarks is reportedly one of the grand hotels in Varanasi and has a nice lobby and entrance with obliging staff. The rooms are spacious but facilities need to be better maintained. No free wifi and only 1 device at a time for paid wifi. The fridge, phone, TV and inroom safe were faulty or absent although these were rectified when...

As a group, we stayed in Clarks Varansi for 3 nights. Overall experience quite good right from check-in, to room service, to quality of food, house keeping, location, and check-out. Barring one or two exceptions, most of the staff is ever willing and smiling to help you out in whatever way you may want. Senior level management is also always...

We had to wait 6 1/2 hours to check in, not the fault of the hotel. We arrived at 6:30 am after an overnight train from Agra but did not get our room until after 1PM. No free wifi and the ridiculous charge of 700 Rupee for 24 hours meant that we just had to sit around and wait. Not...

This property is one of the best Clark property I have been. Located just at the centre of the city, easily accessible to every part of the city. Room's and staff were excellent. One can stay with your family in this hotel.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Exuding colonial charm but with all the mod-cons. this hotel is the flagship of the Clarks Group of Hotels, one of the oldest hotel groups in India. Within proximity of the hotel guests can visit the Old British Cantonment Area, the old city, Vishwanath Temple, and of course the Ghats of the Ganges, and Sarnath-the site of Buddha's first sermon. A must do when in this holy city is a boat ride in the Ganges either at sunset or sunrise. The restaurants on-site offer ample choices from North Indian to international dishes and even popular street food dishes. After a long day exploring Varanasi on foot and in rickshaws, a quick dip at the hotel pool is sure to be refreshing. An excellent hotel, Clarks is a popular choice for guests visiting this North Indian city. ... more   less
