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

Ganesha is a very good place to stay. Even better if you're travelling with a partner to share the (already very good) room price. 1.) The Building & Employees Hotel Ganesha is a 4-5 storied building without any special architecture. It has a spacious lobby and is very clean inside. The hallways and stairs are lighted warmly, the doors look... More

He is principled person and asset to the hotel.The food is bit costly in the hotel. We are happy during our 4 nights stay from 27.01.2015 to... More

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
