It was fantastic experience in Varanasi with great hotel & staffs. We are offered perfect and adorable service by staffs, and it made us relaxed and happy. If we have something to ask , boss has always said, 'Your happiness is important.' then it gave us memorable experiencw in India.

Perfectly located a stones throw from the ghats and with amazing views of beautiful ma Ganga. All the staff were polite and helpful. The rooms were lovely and had very efficient air con, which was so welcome after a day in 44 degrees! We would definitely recommend eating in the hotel, the kitchen was very clean and the food absolutely...

사장님과 직원분들의 너무나도 따듯한 배려에 기억에 남을 바라나시 여행을 하고 갑니다. Your happiness is the most important. 라고 이야기 해주시는 사장님과 아침/저녁으로 환하게 인사해주시는 스텝분들 때문에 따듯한 배려를 선물 받고 갑니다. 강가강이 훤히 보이는 Roof top 에서의 아침식사와 루프탑룸에서의 편안함은 저희 부부에게는 잊지 못할 추억이 될 것 같습니다. 바라나시에서의 좋은 추억을 만들 수 있게 해주신 호텔에 감사합니다 ^^

Great location, good spacious rooms with private balcony and well-priced. There is a rooftop terrace where dinner or drink and snacks can be had. Food is satisfying if not exceptional. This should be a hotel that I want to say we would visit again but I wouldn't. The reason is simply the owner. On check-in he was dismissive on our...

We arrived in Varanasi after the train journey from hell - 27 hours travelling - and we were still met at the station, although Shyam, sent to meet us, had waited all night for our late train that finally limped in 5 hours behind the (several times revised) scheduled time. The great virtue of the Shiva Ganges View is the...

First booking contact with Tanden by mail shiva_gangesview@yahoo.com gained an immediate polite response. A taxi was waiting for us for 2hrs due to delayed landing at night , transporting us to the hotel . We were warmly welcomed by the owner at 11pm with a big smile and a ginger lemon tea to our room. The room itself is well...

Clean, comfortable, very authentic. Kind of feels like you are staying with friends or family that don't speak English terribly well (though they make great efforts!). Food was good, but nothing special. Perfect location. Fantastic massage. Don't be put off by the fact that it's not a "real " massage room; as someone who regularly gets massages, I can say...

Great location. The owner Tandonjee, is businesslike and friendly at the same time. Very welcoming when we first came in. In fact, all the staff are friendly and accommodating. When we wanted to mix and match items on their menu, no problem. One of the staff sat down with us and a map and outlined what we should see and...

Our group spent five days in Varanasi in January. This was a great home base for adventures on the ghats and around the city. Staff were super helpful and attended to all of our needs. Breakfast on the rooftop terrace was a wonderful way to start each day. The overall highlight was tour guide Vivek, who works with this hotel....

The best thing about this hotel is that it is located right on the river. It has a terrace up stairs that provides great views of the Ganges. We arrived during a time when the demonitisation was a problem and we had no cash, only cards. I phoned the owner beforehand ans was reassured it would be ok to get...

“Top floor is quietest and Ganges view is best for sun as well as view, though more costly”

“Ask for third floor with a balcony facing the Ganges”
 of 5 bubbles eytanel, 2 Mar 2017 | Read review
“Rooms with windows to the street can be noisy. The street seems to be a gathering place after dark. 1st floor is cheapest.”
