We really enjoyed our stay at Rahul Guest House. The facilities were generally good (though the rooms are a little small) and the rooftop restaurant with its view over the Ganges was a real bonus. Staff were friendly and helpful. It's not too far to walk to Assi Ghat, or else staff can arrange an auto-rickshaw.

We stayed in Rahul Guest House from 12th January 2016 to 17th January 2016. Rahul Guest house is situated about 200 yards from the banks of Ganges, Has two very good river views. We had taken room number 118 and 125. The bed in room no 118 has spring beds which could be uncomfortable at times . Food is good... More

We really liked the Rahul guest house, the location was very good for us as we like to be away from all the hustle and bustle but near enough to be able to walk to all the local attractions. The guest house is off the Main Street and has got good views over the river from the roof top balcony,... More

We really enjoy our staying in Rahul Guest House. The guest house is situated very close to the center of Varanasi, so you can walk to there. The food was good and the room was nice, clean and quite. The bathroom was clean but a bit small. They arrange also boat trip and city tour but we didn't join it.

This place has almost everything you want it to. The rooms are surprisingly modern, with a comfortable beds and good service to the room. The view is incredible, though. You can stare out at the Ganges while eating any meal, and the food is very good as well. It is also far away from all the city chaos, and is... More

After arriving at Varanasi, I wasn't really a big fan of the city. I didn't like it as much as Delhi. I just wanted to see Ganges river... During My stay at Rahul, the building was bit dirty and I think there's been renovation going on. I guess its nice that they're making the place better, but when it happens... More

My brother and I spent 4 nights at Rahul Guesthouse, which we chose for price and location (down river from Varanasi Central). We wanted some quiet in this unique city. We got that and more! The room was modest, but adequate for our needs, but what we liked most were the people who worked there and the food! We ate... More

Rakesh was the highlight of the hotel experience, so careful and helpful all the time. He even prepared french fries after his work time. The receptionist was also very nice and kindly (wish I could remember his name), I had my bag left in the airport and he helped me all the way to get it delivered from the airport.... More

Honestly, we were apprehensive about our visit to Varanasi as we had never been to India before and traveling there seemed a bit of a dive in the deep end. After the hustle and bustle of Delhi, which we did not enjoy we arrived at the hotel via our hotel pick up driver who was very friendly - we arrived... More

The hotel has no pretenses, looks quite shabby in common areas but my room though small had a beautiful view on the river and it was reasonably clean. As it's often the case only the lower bedsheet was placed and the upper one just provided aside. Given the position of the bed in a corner with three sides ill reachable... More
