rooms are clean and comfortable. Staff are very friendly and helpful and offer suggestions and information about the area. We would freely recommend anyone visiting to consider staying here. Area is very close to Ghats, restaurants and the many shops and stalls.

The rooms were spacious, clean and well furnished though not very airy.Hotel staff were all very courteous and friendly. The approach road, as is the case with any hotel in an old... More

I enjoyed my stay at Hotel Ganesha. Immediately upon check-in, the staff welcomed us warmly and offered the services of the tour guide (complimentary!). The room is fairly standard, though there not much room to walk around after we set up the extra bed. The area is quite nice, a short walk to Assi Ghat (Ganges), but a bit crowded... More

First of all I suppose you get what you pay for. The staff is very nice as always but the quality of the place has declined. I've stayed there 6 times over the years. There is wifi but it's virtually non-existent in use. 5 minutes to load one page, etc. Or it'll work for 2 minutes great and then it's... More

Stayed here after reading the many well rounded trip advisor reviews. My opinion is that this place has been a little hyped up. It is not in the best location, you need to catch a tricycle to the main ghat 'ask for main ghat' otherwise expect an 1 hour walk navigating in and out of traffic and cows. If you... More

The fact that Ganesha has dorm rooms for backpackers is amazing. It is an absolute value for money and a great place to interact with travelers from around the world. Room was Spacious, Staff knows to treat customers, & Good Service.Good position few min walk from the main city centre. Free pick up to the bus depot on call

The Rooms are Clean and staff was polite. The outlook needs an facelift fo attracting more tourists and staff dress code would help identify them. Food was OK and charges were managable. Approach from main road missing to guide for hotel from main street. Dirty entrance of the hotel gives a wrong impresison for tourists and should be clean and... More
