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

We decided to stay out of the crowded city centre, but still near the Ganges river. This hotel offered a/c rooms (it was extremely hot in May) with Ganga view and it exceeded my expectation. The huge window of our triple room offered gorgeous views of the Ganges at a reasonable price. The a/c turned out to be quiet and... More

Rahul Guest House is a family run business which is situated in a quiet location near Assi Ghat, approx 40 minutes walk from the main cremation Ghat. Even though this sounds far, the walk is interesting as it gives one a terrific insight to the daily goings on that take place on the banks of the Ganges. Auto rickshaws etc... More

We arrived after a one and a half hour taxi ride from the airport. The traffic, noise and dirt was bad even by Indian standards. The taxi driver took a long time to find the guesthouse as it was hidden away down a little side street in the outskirts of Varanasi. We were both tired and suffering from Delhi belly.... More

After reading the reviews I decided to stay at this place, but it was the worst place that I had ever been! Let's go point by point: Positive: + you have hot water all day. Negative: - everything else! - location is really remote, 10 / 15 min walking from the furthest ghat (ashi), 1 hour walking to the main... More

We were travelling to Nepal via Varanasi, just having spent 3 days in Agra, stuck because of elections and everything was booked up. We decided to fly from Varanasi to Kathmandu but had no Dollars for the visa and only Indian rupees in 500 bills which are not allowed in Nepal. We arrived at 7 am, our flight was 12:30.... More
