this hotel far away from main temple, rooms are in dirty condition, in bath rooms water, stagnate, bed sheets foul smell. Food is not up to the mark, low standard. it is very difficulty to locate the hotel by the customer and even by residents of varanasi, advise not to book.

The location of the hotel hotel is good, only 5 minutes walking to the river Ganges. The room was very clean and the staff was very nice and help us in everything we need. We recommended this hotel. Quality/price is good.

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

At first we liked this hotel. It's clean, and the location is good. A bit annoying was the employee who was really pushy about buying train tickets through the hotel, but whatever... After a couple of days (and multiple "Sir, you want to book train tickets??!" by the staff) in Varanasi we decided to try to book the train tickets... More

Thank you Hotel Ganesha for looking after me so well while I was with you! I was very sick when I stayed here - the staff were so supportive. They brought me fresh jugs of boiling water all day, bought me lemons from the market, called the doctor and went to the pharmacy to buy my medicines for me. As... More

Me and my friend stayed at Hotel Ganesha last December. The hotel is very near to River Ganga. The hotel room and toilet was very clean. The staff was also good. He gave us a map and noted down all the important places to visit. He also arranged a ferry ride to Ganga aarthi at a cheaper price for us.... More

Hotel is in a small alley and the staff are very rude. They did not give one extra pillow for us and when asked they said they dont have. Food is boring and what ever food you order it will taste the same and the masala is constant. Food is cooked in a small hut on the terrace, unclean environment... More

Located very near to the Assi ghat, the hotel remains accessible by car (which is convenient if you have some luggage…) and although there's no parking space on site, there's a parking (INR 50 / 3h unfortunately) not far. This is useful if, for example, you travel through different cities with the same car / driver through your journey. The... More
