i saw a lot of mixed reviews about this hotel... Some good and some bad... I booked becuase it was cheap and in a good location. I was VERY happy with the hotel and staff. It is safe and short walk to assi ghat. I think the bad reviews must have been from other local businesses as they are untrue.... More

Came highly recommended on TripAdvisor so thought we'd check it out. As expected was a good experience. Cheap and convenient pickup from the airport arranged by the hostel, good location, clean rooms with hot water, helpful staff and 2 minutes walk from Assi Ghat. Best of all would have to be the tour guide Ajay, who went out of his... More

Really nice place, staff helpful. Ajay, the guide, was such a god. Old Varanasi is such a maze! If you're taken to the cremation ghat, be aware that your 'guide' at the ghat will ask you to buy wood for the poor and then make you feel bad when you don't hand over 1000's of rupees. Don't give them anything,... More

Very clean,great location, brilliant staff... Free tour guide (Ajay) who was absolutely fantastic he went above and beyond taking me to a temple at 7am. Only negative is they don't have a lift. But that isn't an issue for me. In a place like Varanasi you need a good hotel with good people to advise you. And this was perfect

We were very happy with our stay at Hotel Ganesha - especially given how inexpensive the rooms were. Special thanks must go to Ajay who showed us around free of charge on the first night and organised a boat ride for us. Location is fantastic right near Assi Ghat, whilst food from the rooftop bar was of a good standard.... More

Rooms were basic but clean with good free wifi in places. Our experience was made so much better with our help Ajay Panday. The night boat and morning sunrise boat that he organised for my friends and I (10 of us), was such an experience. If you stay here definitely ask for him to show you around the place as... More
