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

Located at walking distance from Assi Ghat, Rahel Guest House is a clean and neat house, perched above 2 rows of village houses, overlooking the Ganges. Far from the crowded and polluted city, we slept good full nights and woke up fresh for a walk along the ghats in the rising sun. After that, we enjoyed very varied and decent... More

This hotel is not quite on the Assi Ghat, but only a 10 min walk away. The hotel staff are very nice but usually unable to fulfil any of your requests. There are many trips and tours on offer, but none were available on those days. The room was clean except for the top bed sheet that had brown marks... More

Rahul Guest House is clean and cozy place in Varanasi, out from the noisy Old City but a few minutes walking from it. In the night you'll sleep without problem! Roof Top Restaurant is simple but delicious and you can taste a lot of different Indian dishes watching Ganga and all the city shape from Assi Ghat 'till the end.... More

We spent four days there. We liked it so much that when we returned to Varanasi two weeks later, we went back and stayed another week! The guesthouse is located a short distance south of the Assi Ghat and Assi River. It is perched above the Ganges with wonderful views from the rooms and roof-top restaurant. (When we returned we...

We stayed a couple of days at Rahuls after crossing the border from Nepal. We were happy with the tidiness and spaciousness of the room. The room was clean and the shower was good. The owner and staff are friendly and the food in the restaurant is good. We stayed here in May, which is not a good time to... More

This was one of the nicest places l stayed in India. The family running the place was extremely helpful and I had a good room,with a view of the Ganges. I loved sitting on the rooftop and meeting fellow trevelers. A number of reviewer have complained that guest house is away from the action,but I thought that was a plus... More

Newly decorated and modern room, great view of Ganges from rooftop, adequate food, good boat rides can be arranged. 10 minute walk to the first ghat, Assi Ghat - a few km to the main ghat and lively old city so tuk tuk needed. Not a great area to walk back through late at night, very rough dark track roads... More
