The hotel is located at Godowlia near the chawk very close to the famous Kashi Vishwanath Temple and the popular Dasaswamedh Ghat which is the best place to watch the "Sandhya Aarti" by the river Ganga. The temple is 2 min walk and the Dasaswamedh ghat is 5 min walk from the temple. The Dasaswamedh road is the most happening... More

Hotel is rightly situated, just 400mtrs from the famous Holy river Ganges, Dasaswamedh Ghat. I stayed here for 2nights and booked through cleartrip.com for an flight inclusive deal for 3 from Bangalore to Varanasi via Delhi for 40k. We hired an motor boat on the 2nd day for Rs700 to take us across all the 5ghats for an holy dip.... More

Have been in this hotel for 10 days. Very near to temple (gate no.1). It was really a very good experience. Maintenance staff are very friendly and helpful through out our stay especially Naveen Singh. Rooms are well maintained and clean. Hope our next visit to kashi will be in same hotel.

Past reviewers have written about the location so I will not touch that part. The hotel maintenance is fairly good. We had a couple of leaky taps but were told that they could be fixed in half an hour. Bed linen and pillow quality was a disappointment They were clean and fresh but were often torn and yellowing. The pillows... More

Hotel is clean, staffs are polite and professional. Restaurant food is good and tasty. We loved stuffed kulcha. Rooms on high floor are better. We were in 4th level. Good air conditioning,... More
