But there were big differences between both of them. One of them had a good bathroom,lcd tv but the other one was not up... More

This is the best hotel in terms of location - just 5 minutes walk from the epicenter of Varanasi - the Kashi Vishwanath Mandir. However certain things might trouble you for e.g. no lift services most of the time and very steep stairs , Indian style toilets - clean though (for all these reasons I would not recommend it to...

This was my 2nd trip to the same hotel and it was worst. This hotel is owned by Shri.Ravinder Jaiswal, who is the local BJP MLA and also has one more hotel called VIBHAVASH in same Dasaswamedh ghat. Until the time of check out, they never said that their credit card machine is not working. Made me run to ATM's... More

The vegetarian food is good, fresh and healthy. Service is very good and the staff is very helpful. The rooms are small in size... More

I stayed with family at lara India from 1 Jan to 3 jan ( 3 days). Rooms are very small. We were given rooms in the third floor. Lift was not working most of the time due to electricity issues or mechanical fault with the lift. Stairs are pretty high so if you have aged guests, it will be an... More

Rooms: Stayed at AC deluxe room on 3rd floor, small room, clean toilet, hot water. Since it was Dec, didn't have to use AC. Food: the in house restaurant is good.... More

The location of the hotel is on the main road and just to the point where the cars/ autos are allowed to go. The Dashashwamedh Ghat is just at a walking distance of 5-8 mins. Rickshaws are also available. The entrance of the hotel is a little clogged with shops and the stairs are narrow. However the rooms are more... More
