I spent over a month in Varanasi with my whole stay being at Suraj Guest House. It was a very enjoyable, affordable experience in a very comfortable, spacious room. The guest house is centrally located to the main ghats, Golden Temple, many shops and excellent restaurants. It was there that I met Gaurav Khanna who is an excellent tour guide... More

Good location in the middle of old town, just 2 min walk from the river, and with a nice view from the room top. Good service! Vert dificult to find on your own, but they can arrange to pick you up. We had good help and guiding from Gaurav, that made us feel very safe!

I stayed for 3 nights oct 2014. The guest house is located the centre of the old city. Right beside the spot cremations take place. Being as we all have a morbid curiosity with the "body burning" thsn it is perfect to pay a quick visit to watch then leave. The staff are all incredibly friendly and helpful. Lots of... More

I stayed for 5 nights here in Suraj Guest house and it was really worse it. It is located 50 meters away from the ganga and also very close to the small path through the varanasi town where all the live is happening.

We booked a non AC double room, but the owner gave us a AC room as bonus! The owner was nice and didn't give pressure to guests. The room was not big but clean and comfortable. It is located quite near Ganga, and thus provides a great view from the roof top!

The staff here are great...they couldn't have been more helpful, and the guest house has a really friendly atmosphere. There's a central seating area, which meant we met several of the other people staying there at the same time as us. The location is also great, as its near to the river and to the main streets with shops, resturants... More

Family run guest house with very kind people which made us feel like at home. Always helpful and nice with us. The place is near the main burning ghat and it is very safe (we've been walking at night there and had no problems). It is very close to Golden Temple and police is always around. Highly recommended.
