Located right on the Ganges, at the Shivala Ghat, this place is ideally located. Slightly further away from the really crazy busy ghats, it's a peaceful retreat. However, just steps a couple of streets away from all the shops. It is tucked away, but honestly not that difficult to find and we were able to navigate through the whole area... More

Just located by the river, very convenient (although took me some time to find it). Staff very nice and warm. Even only a few guests there, they played live music at the yard. It's not big, and looks like it was a fort before.

Our one night stay in this Haveli was all too short. The location, as we expected, is superb, and I am so glad we decided to stay right on the Ganges. We arrived in darkness, in pre-Diwali madness, and after the crazy Varanasi traffic, the peace of the hotel was wonderful. Staff met our taxi - booked through the hotel... More

This is a heritage listed property and it is located right on one of the ghats (steps). If you want the "real" Varanasi experience then this property is perfectly located. Note: you cannot drive to the hotel. You can be dropped off either on the river or at an intersection just a few minutes walk from the hotel. Hotel staff... More

The hotel, as others have mentioned, is in a great location. I could look out the window and see the river and the cows bathing. It's a short walk to see the aarti and have a boat ride. The room itself was nothing special. I was surprised by twin beds but it was perfectly fine and the hotel staff try... More

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...
