Perfect location as it is centered between the ghats, is close to the water and offers awesome view from balconies and the roof top. Nice manager who assisted us with different room types and how to get there in advance by email. Rooms are okay but the toilet smelled. Staff members except of the manager speak almost no English.

Yes, I have been here before in 2010, I am writing this from the Leela Guesthouse. Since my last time here, the Leela has some great additions. From the ground floor to a single large special room at the top, Leela Guesthouse serves all budgets. The new rooms offer some spectacular and private views. What prompts me to give this... More

This was my second time staying at Leela. The rooms are simple but the views, location and service can not be better. The owner Rajesh was very helpful with info, reserving our train tickets, hiring a private car for day trips, changing money, etc... Mickey who is second in command is always around to help, make tea or cook up... More

Visited this Leela Guest house, Manasarover Ghat, varanasi on March 10 2013. This is located very near to all ghats. This is also located near to VNS andhra brahmin hotel. They have charged us Rs. 700 per day and 12PM checkout. Late checkout is not negotiable. This was a bit inconvenience to us otherwise, it was good. They have free... More

It's unfortunate that other visitors had an unpleasant experience (as their reviews show) but I must say for what it's worth that Leela Guest House is truly worth it in terms of value and friendliness. It has a splendid location away from the crowds of the main ghat giving one the space for relative calmness of the neighborhood. Ganges is... More

I stayed at this hotel for a couple of days. It was expensive for what you got, however, but I had not much choice because of Khumb Mela, everything else was full. For transport reasons, I had to spend one more night in varanasi a couple of days later. To be sure I had a room again near the ghats... More
