Cannot say enough about the small Taj hotel in the exciting city of Varanasi. There are only ten rooms an the one restaurant but that is all you need here. The rooms are well appointed and beautiful, the food is to die for, they could not do enough for their guests and we're happy to provided traditional Indian food from... More

One of the best hotels I have stayed in anywhere in the world and certainly the best on our extended trip to India. It is a very small hotel run by the Taj Group with only twelve rooms, all unique but beautiful furnished with a mixture of new and wonderful antiques. The greeting when you arrive is warm and friendly... More

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
