Very happy with this place. The location is fabulous, although very very hard to find, we got lost every time, and I'm not sure id want to be a lone female wandering the lanes at night. The room was spotless, tiny but functional bathroom, beautiful cool courtyard, or roof top restaurant with spectacular views. If only the reception staff were...

Located in a good, very good , part of Varanasi. Clean and (quite) cheap. We slept in the annexe, not far from the main place. Terrace is a great value. Reception was gentle,very gentle and friendly. Food was ok. We were a family. It was a pleasure.

Second time staying here and we use the place as a treat to escape to soak up some "luxury" in India as we usually stay in much cheaper places but after 10 days of vipasana meditation we wanted comfort.

Although a long walk through narrow lanes this guest house is very tidy and a cosy place. The Ganga facing rooms have a magnificent view. The staff are very friendly and very helpful. Just be careful of the monkeys and little bees ( the bees come only during the monsoon).

It's a nice and calm place, perfect to rest after a long day in Varanasi. The view is spectacular and the food is so good! I loved the chay and the lassies. As I was alone, I felt completely safe, the staff is nice and so polite.

We stayed here for 2 nights in mid-July. We had a suite room with Ganga view and Private Balcony. But don’t leave your coffee outside unattended even for a minute, otherwise the monkeys will take it! Our room was very large, with more than enough space, with an incredible view of the Ganges. The hotel’s restaurant was very good, and...

We had a pleasant stay in Ganpati Guest House in July, 2014. We stayed in a standard double with AC. The staff were polite and professional, and our room was clean and comfortable with functioning AC and running hot water. We were staying during low season so there weren't many other guests, but I imagine it would be a good...

Great ambience, great location, good food and service. If you are in Benaras, you need to be near the Ganges, near the Dashaswamedh ghat, near Vishwanath temple. Ganpati is the place. Though it caters mostly to foreign tourists, it maintains a very local flavour, The facilities are basic but is ethnic in style and definitely preferable to the 4/5 star...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
We are Ganpati Guest House - if you stay here, we are sure that you will have a good time in Varanasi. Of course the view of the beautiful river Ganges is amazing and exotic. Many people who come to Varanasi stay with us in the Ganpati Guest House. The staff are very kind and have a good spirit. We look forward to meeting you and hope beautiful time in Varanasi. The history of Ganpati Guest House: The Ganpati is located at the east end of the Mother Ganges in Varanasi, makes its presence known throughout the riverbanks not only by shining the world's oldest culture as well as oldest city. A city of light...but also by offering cutting-edge restaurants, renowned facilities, amazing view and comfortable accommodations. This 3-story Redstone pyramid was built in 1905 on the river Ganges, contains so many amenities on such an enormous scale that it's becomes practically amazing vacation. Spacious rooms surrounded by the plants, which boasts your staying, dining and entertainment. The Garden, at more than 1000 square feet, is one of Varanasi's oldest existing buildings and rarely available, offering a tranquil sitting, an array of nice music, a rack of books nearby. We want to deliver inside of the property a best atmosphere. We're trying to become a little more contemporary and appeal to all age crowds with holy feelings. We want to offer the best entertainment, dining, staying and relax without insulting the worth of your damage. That's not to say that "The city of Light" will be memorable entire the life. It is, after all, still a part of what makes the property unique, and explained that the hotel is prepared to keep the better executed elements of the riverbank-culture theme. Kind regards. ... more   less
