We spent two nights in this hotel where the room was fine for the price. The rooftop is quite nice as well with the possibility to eat at their restaurant. The food was however not that good. Finally the staff for the hotel (not the restaurant) is just disgusting and composed of liers. Be careful with the sunrise/sunset boat trip,... More

Hot water, western bathroom all a plus and if you get cold just ask for more blankets and their happy to accommodate you! Don't expect a 5 star resort. The rooms are basic but are perfect for backpackers. Clean and your rubbish gets taken daily! Stayed 6 nights with this lot and they were nothing but attentive and helpful whenever... More

Staff is very helpful,you will be given a free map of the Old Town as well as some info about the city. It is located closely to the Ghats, so everything... More

Spent a couple of nights here and it's been good. The room was clean enough and the shower worked fine. Breakfast was decebt too. The guys who work here seem like they're always stoned but they're really helpful and the owner is a cool dude. It's close to the river and temples so well located too

sandhya has clean rooms with high ceilings that gives a nice spatious feeling. We took a room with private bathroom. Hot shower is a plus after a day walking through the streets of Varanasi. The owner is friendly and willing to help where he can. Wouldn't doubt coming back here when visiting varanasi again.

We came to this place by the recommendation of a taxi driver and found it quite appealing. We got a spacious room, but with no windows outside and because of that, poorly ventilated. However, the beds were clean and the washroom was decent, even with bath we (obviously) did not use. It has a good location and the rooftop restaurant... More

We were taken here by an auto rickshaw driver who gave us the "that area of town is flooded" after we asked to be taken to the main area closer the the Ghats, but we had a look inside anyway and chose a room. The double room had a/c, was clean, large and well kept. I think it was one... More
