This haveli or small hotel is situated directly on a major ghat on the River Ganges at Varanasi. It is one of very few high-quality hotels to be on a ghat. We had a large corner suite on the top floor and from our small bedroom window we were able to watch activities going on below us. The larger side... More

The location here on the Ghats is well worth it - the rooms and property was initially a little disappointing for the price - our expectations were higher, however, after two nights we realised that the higher price is worth being right in the action. The staff were really helpful and caring, the food vegetarian and no alcohol allowed (except... More

My friend and I stayed 3 nights in early Nov, and thoroughly enjoyed our stay though wish the prices of this property were more in line with prevalent rates in Banaras.@Rs 17000/night for a non river view, this is just way too high as the property facilities by no means even touch 4 star not to speak of 5 star....

Its a hotel right on the water and one sees India at its core. For the price I expected more but its pleasant and has a lovely roof top terrace where I had a great nap. AC and TV worked well the breakfast were decent but once again for the price I expected greater quality. I do business in the... More

We stayed here for a few nights in October including Diwali when the hotel put on a lovely feast and celebration. It was a simple, basic hotel that offers a great location where you can wake up to the sun rising over the Ganges and hear the sounds of people bathing in the morning and the water buffaloes splashing in...

This is a nice hotel, the staff is friendly and speaks English very well. The restaurant is fine, has nice food and is good priced. The location next to the river is great and the building is very beautifull. During breakfast, one of the waiters 'secretly' made a picture with his phone of my girlfriend. You could expect this on... More

Spent 3 nights here early this month. We were warned that seeing its right on the ghats its a sacred sight so no alcohol could be served, however having been pre-warned we stopped off enroute and bought some beer. The hotel is also vegetarian, but dont let this stop you from staying here. My husband loves his meat and was... More

Great location in Varanasi, right on the riverfront. You can be woken by the water buffaloes having a morning bath. Comfortable hotel, pleasant large room overlooking the river. Vegetarian food was good, pleasant to eat in the courtyard and watch staff chase off monkeys with catapults! Fascinating city, the sun rise and sunset boat trips are not to be missed.... More

The restaurant was ok and very convenient. I cannot comment on the boat ride as boats were not allowed on the Ganges while I was there due to high water. It was easy to setup a driver to/from the airport and train station. It is a bit difficult to find - especially at night when the lights are turned off.... More

The position of this hotel is perfect, near enough to the centre of things to be convenient but tucked away in a quieter part of the waterfront. Staying here was one of the highlights of my month long trip and the hotel provides much more than just a place to stay. Live music in the courtyard in the evenings, it's... More
