Stayed here for two nights, amazing location and food. Room smelt a bit odd the first night but seemed okay once aircon had kicked in. However had to evacuate room the second night after the whole room flooded with water from blocked drain. Not a pleasent experience

I don't understand why everyone has given this place such great reviews. The food is pretty nice, perhaps? But the breakfast is underwhelming. The rooms are ok, and some have a view of the Ganges through a small, low-down window. The location is good and mosquitos were easily avoided. Went to Palace on Ganges afterwards, which offered all the same... More

What a fantastic find this hotel was. So happy it was recommended by the travel agency I used, Audley Travel. Quaint building with a history! Loved the courtyard and of course, the views from the terrace and from the roof. There are a flight of stairs leading down to the river at this end of the river. Every evening the... More

The only way to really experience the magic of Varanasi in a short visit is to stay directly on the ghat. Because of the holiness of the river there aren't too many tourist hotels with this prime location. We absolutely LOVED staying at this hotel, which can only be reached by foot through winding allyways that open onto a spectacular... More

Built around an open courtyard, this hotel was an esthetic delight, with marigolds in basins and an option to eat outdoors or in the small dining room. Our room looked right out on the Ganges, where we could see people bathing, washing and drying their clothes. The staff was extremely welcoming and helpful and our room was very comfortable. We...

The hotel is right on the Ganges and has the best vegetarian food in India. It's the former guest house of the King of Nepal. While we were there we had a terrific car and driver who has excellent English. He can be reached at Santorharma 1978@gmsil.com or phone 9956851319.

Wow- apart from being in Varanasi, one of the most mystical and interesting cities I have ever visited, this hotel is wonderful. Charming and boutique-style, it is RIGHT on the river Ganges. Steps away. A private entry way off of a back street leads you to a charming courtyard with trees, marigolds and incense. There is lice music at night.... More

The hotel is very well placed with great views of the river and it is very easy to walk along the ghats to get to the prayer and cremation sites. Compared to other hotels you might find in India the rooms are simple and small, but comfortable, perhaps appropriate for a pilgrimage site. Cars cannot get right up to the... More

I cannot imagine being in Varanasi and not staying at a hotel that is right on the Ganges! The amazing view from the river-view bedroom and the rooftop terrace more than make up for the short walk to the hotel from the street. The rooms are lovely and quite comfortable.The courtyard offers a peaceful oasis in the city. The food... More
