Manager is extremely extremely rude and very pushy. All in all a very uncomfortable stay..and the prices are quite high as well, given the standard of accommodation provided. Avoid this place if you can, I'm sure there are better places to stay in Varanasi

We stayed for 3 nights here in a non ac double. It was affordable, clean, and quiet. The staff was helpful and Ajay (the hotels's free tour guide) was great. There is a place to relax on the roof and escape the mid day heat and lots of nice restaurants to visit in the area. Open hand cafe in a... More

This hotel is located a stone's throw away from Assi ghat and is well worth the 700 rs per night my friend and I paid for a double room. The staff was extremely courteous and we felt safe here. The rooms are small but clean. The toilets were clean and the tv worked. We had a great time walking to... More

This is one of the best budget hotels I've stayed at in India. Clean rooms with a good atmosphere and most of the staff are very helpful. They will even arrange for cheap river tours and complementary walking tours of the city. The only bad thing I could find was the manager, who I found to be rude and unhelpful.... More

The hotel gave us a "complimentary" guide that couldn't speak english. The over charged us for boat rides and taxis on 2 ocations. We prepared prices with guests at other hotels and both boat and taxi charges were less. The hotel taxi driver also wanted to charge us extra for airport parking but he dropped us at the drop off...

Really happy with our stay here, very friendly staff, lots of smiles and hellos but no hassling. A particular member of staff Ajay was very friendly and offered us a free walking tour of the temples around assi ghat. He... More

I found room 203 at Hotel Ganesha after five nights in a different guesthouse...and many days of looking at other rooms. When I found it to have clean sheet and a good bathroom I was sold. They charged me 500rupies, for a room with outside window, TV, attached bath and double bed. I had to bargain hard as they originally... More
