Nadesar Palace or one can say a Guest house for British East India Company is a beautiful colonial property, we stayed in a standard room ( the Persia room) which was well appointed and extremely comfortable but located just next to dinning area so a bit noisy. The staff, young chef, yoga instructor, are the best. Beside a noisy room... More

Faultless rooms and facilities, service & food in this tranquil retreat from the city. The boutique nature of the hotel means a truly personal service from the managers and staff. Brilliant young chef - try the Thali as a great introduction to a range of local tastes.

I have stayed in a few luxury properties, including "palaces" in India. What I liked about this one is the small number of rooms, which makes the service extremely personalized. With only ten rooms, they actually make you feel like royalty. After my recent three day stay there, I want to book the entire hotel for a group of family... More

This 12 room palace turned hotel within a hotel is so comfortably laid out you'd much like to move in and call your best friends to come stay a while. The expansive grounds, the small, tranquil pool and the discrete attentive service are a paradox to the swirl of Varanasi beyond the gates.

If you want to feel like you have a palace in India, this is the place for you. There are only 10 rooms in this historic building. Service is first class, from the spa to dining, they cater to your needs. The chef comes and welcomes you when you arrive, chats about meal preferences, food allergies, etc. and then designs...

Simply perfect in every way and the most wonderfully talented and charming chef as well as superb staff. I cannot recommend this hotel highly enough! It is the perfect antidote to the madness that is Varanasi and everything is done to make your stay wonderful. Lovely treatments in the Spa, too!

I have stayed in most of the 5 star hotels in India. This one is really a gem. A truly authentic boutique location that was built according the ancient Indian principles of architecture designed to maximize health and well-being--Vastu.. With only 10 rooms and a surrounding environment of gardens and its own 400 year old temple. It is realy delightful.... More

A magnifent hotel that was once a real Palace! Only 10 rooms we had one of the two rooms on the ground floor which was very nice but Noisy as an Indian musician insisted from playing from7am every morning! To be fair we only had to ask and he stopped but I do think the management should rethink this as... More

The three of us stayed at 2 suites. Forgot the name, but it is the largest and second largest suite on the property ( from a total of 10 rooms). The place for sure is like a palace.

Truly a beautiful experience. We are Taj Patrons and the hospitality extended to us by the staff was fantastic as expected. The suites are large & as we were a family of 3 there was plenty of space. The ambience & the beauty of the palace is a vast contrast to the vibrant city of Varanasi. Would love to visit... More
