I came here with two friends near the end of a five-week long trip through Bangladesh and India. Please note that our hotel standards after Bangladesh were very low. We hated this place. We did not expect hot water or particularly clean sheets (which we didn't get). The only thing we wanted was a working toilet, which we DID NOT... More

This was the first hotel we stayed in India and also the worst. I have never met people so rude as the manger of the hotel and the manager of the restaurant. At the beginning they try and bully you in to going to their silk shop and to book a tourist trip with them which you'll find out later... More

The only reason to come here is for its great location (within the old city and near the Ganga) and its correct price (600rs for a double room with bathroom). The service is not very friendly, but I would say that for all of Varanasi

I'm not even sure what to say here. I'm giving it a 2 stars, because "Shiva" as he calls himself (the owner/manager) was really great. It seems he is trying really hard to make this place nice. However, calling this a budget hotel is tough. The bathroom in our room was a facet with a bucket and toliet (at least... More

Hidden away near the most famous Gaht in Varanasi this guest house is not the most impressive but defiantly does the job for the cost. The rooms are a decent size and we had hot water no problem. From experience take showers at night rather than morning as most are powered by solar panels heating the water so it makes... More

It was dirty with bugs. I never had hot water. I asked and the night deskman kept telling me 5 minutes, he kept coming in my bathroom and couldn't figure it out. After an hour I took a cold shower and went to sleep. In the morning again the same program. When I went to check out I insisted that... More

I guess for a "budget" hotel this would be considered ok. I think I was a victim of the typical scam where you are told your hotel didn't have a room, and they take you to a much cheaper one insyead. Compared to what I was expecting, this was an awful disapointment: smelly, sleazy, etc. The rooftop restaurant was ok,... More

We were harassed by a tout to come here and we didn't have the energy to fend him off so we ended up staying and got stuck as I was sick. The room itself was okay, but expensive. 1000rs for top floor with air con in off season. The TV didn't work and they constantly found excuses why they wouldn't... More

The room was dirty. A window pane was missing and had to be fixed with duck tape (essential packing IMO). When it rained and the wind blew hard, water came into the room. The downstairs hall was dark and gloomy. The staff were not openly friendly but when pressed were helpful. The view was good but the balcony had no... More

We spend just one night and then we run away. The owner started from 1500 rupies for a room that at the end er paid 1000, a huge amount of money to be off season. The hall is terrible and full of wired people, u ear screaming from floors to orhers and the room was dirty and small with no... More
