Wow, what a view 180 degree views of the Ganges and life in Varanasi. The accommodation is great, remember this is a guest house and not a hotel. Staff are super helpful. Restaurant was being renovated at the time but room service meals are available and breakfast in the large foyer is great. There are also a couple of hole... More

The most important feature of the hotel is that its owner n the workers are unbelievably kind n friendly .we were lucky to be there just at birthday night if the owner n were treated as close friends. The other merit is its location just few steps distance from the river ...

While booking in Varanasi first you have to decide whether you would like to stay near the Ghat or in the city. If you don't want to miss the flaver of the old city you must stay near the Ghat. And this hotel is perfectly placed. The resturent is good too. Two negative I should mention.. 1. Number of steps... More

In my opinion this is one of the best locations in Varanasi. I always chose to stay in the most expensive room category because it has the best view of the Ganges. If you want a fab view with a fab location then you should stay here. However, you are paying a lot more for that view and you are... More

If you want to be right in the heart of the old city this is the perfect place to base yourself. Friendly team, clean room - small but functional. Unfortunately the rooftop restaurant (which has an incredible view) was closed for renovations. If it was open it would be the most amazing place to have breakfast and chill out! Not... More

Excellent Location, on the bank of Holy Ganges (Pvt Ghat), adjacent to ManMandir Temple. It also has good & short cut (walking by lanes) connectivity to the Holy Vishwanath Mandir. Staff very humble & good hospitality.

This place is well situated and staff very friendly and helpful. Lovely views over the Ganges. The rooms very well equipped. Lots of stairs but we didn't have to carry anything. No restaurant but plenty of refreshments on request

In one respect, I am pleased we stayed here for the atmosphere right on the bank of The Ganges. Our room was on the top floor in the front with monkeys climbing in the tree - however, there is no lift, no fire escape plan or exits - in case of a fire we would have been trapped on the... More

You can step out of the hotel and after 15 steps, you will be in Ganges. We stayed there on a sunday, just before the last monday of Shravan month. From the station we have to come by taxi, then rickshaw and then by walk for 500mtrs to reach the hotel. You will have to walk through the narrow lanes... More
