The facilities overall were fantastic.We stayed in the Lord Mountbatten suite and the Queen Elizabeth suite and were lovingly looked after by the staff.We really were enchanted by the service Mr Neeraj and Mr Dalip...

I came with a friend who was in India for the first time. This hotel absolutely made our visit to Benares outstanding. The city is crowded, dirty and can be challenging to digest. The oasis of peace and calm we found at the hotel allowed us to enjoy all the culture and music that is an integral part of Varanasi.... More

I stayed at the Nadesar palace because my usual haunt, the Radisson was full. They gave me the 'Queen Elizabeth' suite, presumably Her Highness had stayed there at some point, I do not recall if that was mentioned in the hotel's history or not. In any case, the place is a boutique hotel, small and well appointed, being the erstwhile... More

This is the easiest way to explain the experience of being a guest at Nadesar Palace. It's as if you had the good fortune to meet someone who is friends with someone who knows a King and this king happens to have a palace in Varanasi, and it turns out this King is generous and his friends are generous and...

We were booked into the Gateway Hotel on our recent trip to Varanasi and were upgraded to the Nadesar Palace. This is a small intimate hotel of aroud 10 rooms/suites. It is an incredible place as it was a private palace before it was restored as a hotel. It reflects the best that a hotel can be in terms of... More

We stayed at the Nadesar Palace for two short nights...wish we could have stayed longer. The hotel has only 10 rooms. We stayed in one of the suites, a huge suite with everything a weary traveler needs. The bed was perfect for a much needed, peaceful rest after the hustle and bustle of Varanasi. The bath included a claw-foot tub... More

We stayed at the Nadesar Palace for 2 nights at the beginning of July, and this hotel really grew on us as our time there progressed. The arrival was impressive and as you drive past the larger Taj hotel next door and into the Nadesar Palace you quickly realise you made the right choice. We were greeted with the traditional...

Oh what an extraordinarily spectacular experience the Taj Nadesar Palace was, and what an ideal compliment it was to the wondrous holy city of Varanasi! My mother and I culminated our 2-week tour of India in January 2015 in this out-of-this-world city and opulent hotel, once the residence of the local Maharaja and royal family. I, firstly, extend my profound... More

Simply put, the Nadesar Palace is a true triumph of the hospitality business. We visited the Nadesar Palace for four nights in August, and were simply blown away by its charm and luxury. In a country of amazing service and incredible hotels, the Nadesar Palace is a resounding stand-out from our two-week trip to the North of India. The hotel... More
