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

There are many wonderful hotels in Varanasi with warm and hospitable owners. Unfortunately this is not the place. Indifference and cold reception is what you will experience after staying here for few days. On top of that they will double book your room and try to kick you out while you are still here, as it happened to us and... More

I stayed here for 3 days. Hotel room and bathroom was clean. Eventhough there is free wifi, its terrible. They charged 200rs for boat ride to see ganges aarthi and its not good. Next day I paid 20 rs and was able to sit in the front boat to see it. Food is very expensive for the quality of service... More

We stayed with our family in 2 rooms from 7-9th Oct. The rooms are average for the price. It is closer to the river Ganga and to the pilgrimage points. The free guide is a plus point. Ajay the guide employed by the hotel is a fantastic guy, very helpful and knowledgeable. The wifi was ok. The restaurant is not... More

The hotel is close to the Gange and the environment was very friendly and safe! The best part was the free guide they provided us with, Ager! He was the most kind, good-hearted man we met there and he always took good care of us! At least we had a special bond!

Overall this is the sort of 'what you pay is what you get' where the rooms aren't the cleanest (our bed sheets were dirty and had plenty of holes, there were questionable smears on the walls...) but the price isn't so bad. We paid an extra 13 rupees for the superior room, though I don't see how it was any... More

The management was excellent. My room was clean and normal for a budget traveler. After staying at this hotel for three nights, I actually used it as a base of operations for the remainder of my stay because of it's favorable location. For me it became a kind of refuge in the noisy and chaotic environment of old India. The... More

What struck me the most about this place is the good customer serviced in comparison to most other hotels in India. Location is very good, very close to several temples, and from Assi Ghat, where you can take a boat to the other Ghats. They organized the cabs for us, and the extremely friendly hotel guide (Ajay; he is hotel... More
