We stayed here when the hotel had visiting dignitaries staying so we felt we missed out on some of the top notch service this hotel is famous for. The location is fabulous and having the Gateway hotel next door is an added bonus

If you want to see what it might have been like to live like an aristocrat in colonial India, the Nadesar Palace gives you that opportunity. It is set in a beautiful historic mansion, appropriately restored, with only 10 or so rooms. The rooms themselves were very comfortable; large, with all the amenities you'd expect. Service was excellent -- very... More

The hotel does appear faded at first, despite the elaborate welcoming fanfare. Its design is indeed unremarkable. This hotel is all about the experience- it doesn't get more spiritual than that, right? The staff are fantastically concerned about the wellbeing of their handful of guests- there are only 10 rooms. the real coup is in the spa- the best yoga... More

Wow! What an incredible place set in gorgeous gardens. The welcome is memorable with musicians playing a fanfare, a bindi mark being made on your forehead and beads strung around your neck before you are sat down in reception with a glass of fruit juice while check-in formalities are completed. They take a photo of you sitting with your drink... More

One of the best hotels I have stayed in. Rooms are very luxurious, lovely marble bathrooms. There are amazing veranda's and balconies, sitting rooms, and pool area to relax in. As there is only 10 rooms in the hotel, it felt like I had the place to myself for most of the time. Staff are very friendly. It is a... More

Very small hotel with beautiful rooms and suites and great dining. We said all days under the veranda outside enjoying the food. Real personal service and the golf with nazeem was very nice. It is not close the the city center of Varanasi but you get silence in return. we will come back

After having done a couple of trekkings in the himalaya mountains the weeks before, we visited cities as Delhi, Agra and we also wanted to see Varanasi for one day. Varanasi was a top experience. Especially the way is a risjka (bike) to the Ganges river and the cremation ceremony along the river. Impressive. Also crowded. Back in the hotel... More

This is a truly small luxury hotel within a chaotic city of Varanasi. Only 10 bedrooms available inside a huge ground. We stayed at the Pandit Nehru Suite where Nehru was staying here 2 times in 1950 and 1952. The suite is so nice. After they showed us the room that we really love, we had lunch at the outdoor...
