I stayed at Rahul Guest House in 2014, January and August. Clean and friendly family-run guesthouse located close to Assi Ghat. The owner is very warm. On my second visit I was welcomed with a big smile. The rooms were clean and comfortable. Wifi was available on the rooftop restaurant with great Ganga views.

Cant speak highly enough of the Rahul guest house- great views of the Ganges, a refuge from the squalor and hubbub of Varanasi, genuinely caring staff, and nice food. Whats not to like? A ten minute walk from Assi ghat

We landed Rahul Guest House by chance as a Hotel booked by us online was not having Rooms. They are very helpful and escorted us to Rahul Guest House. And really we enjoyed our stay over there. Room is clean and having all the amenities required. Roof Top Restaurant having a view of Holy Ganga served the great food.

I spent a long time choosing our accomodation in Varanasi as the choices are SO varied ! Rahul Guest House is exactly what it says it is - a good price for a very clean and friendly place to crash after the madness of the place ! Amazing Rooftop views and very nice young staff - rooms basic but clean,... More

A little off the Assi Ghat but a very local neighborhood that is a good find. About 20 minute walk to Assi Ghat through a real Varanasi neighborhood. The staff was polite and accommodating. Good English speaking and a great view of Ganges on the roof. For the price it's a good place to try out.

Sorry guys – this is going to be an uncharacteristically long one. We were three girls who had booked the superior ganges facing room for three nights on an online portal. On arrival at the hotel, the front desk staff very slyly tells us he would recommend the family room to us since we were a party of three because... More

This is a very friendly place in a calm area of varanasi, but still on a walking distance to all the ghats. We even got invited to a Christmas tea party at a friend of the owner's. Nice rooftop terrace restarant with view of ganges and neighbours' rooftops! We can definitely recommend this place!

My trip to Varanasi was fantastic largely because of the great accommodations at the Rahul Guest House. They have all of the services needed to make your trip complete from tours and drivers to wifi and washing machines. Additionally, they have a great restaurant that overlooks the Ganges River. Even with all of this, the thing I liked the most... More

After leaving the Rahul Guest House (refer to earlier review), I realized that I had left my Kindle in my room. Bitto went to a great deal of trouble to ensure the safe delivery of my Kindle to me in Johannesburg, South Africa. This shows the dedication and exceptional attention shown by the Rai family to their guests. Thanks and... More

We stayed for a couple of nights at the guest house, it is definitely positioned in the best end of the Ghats, it is much quieter. I loved walking to Assi ghat and seeing real life in India, with cattle, pigs, cats and dogs sharing the streets. I felt very fortunate to visit Varanasi and see the rituals, from the... More
