My husband and I spent a night here last week. On our arrival we were warmly greeted by the people working there. Our room was clean and comfortable and had AC. We had one with a view from a small low "window" but that was fine as really you want to be out amongst it not sitting in a room... More

Very friendly staff, clean rooms, perfect location. Dinner was also excellent and the evening band was actually good. Highly recommended! Make sure to ask for a room with a river view. Also, don't miss the complimentary boat ride in the evening.

It is an below average property. The marketing is faulty and misleading. They have only 2 rooms that are river facing and they sell more than that. The rooms that they sell as river view, you have to kneel down and peep through a opening to get the view. So even if you have paid extra for the room, you... More

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.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Suryauday Haveli on Shivala Ghats is a reflection of the spirit of the holy city of Benaras. The Haveli traces its history back to the early 20th century. It was built by the Royal Family of Nepal as a retreat for the aged. Its now been painstakingly put together again to provide the best ghat experience in Benaras. Your stay begins with a 15 minute boat ride upstream along the famous ghats of Benaras to reach the Haveli. The Haveli is also connected by small alleys and streets leading to the Famous Kashi Vishwanath Temple (15 minutes walk). ... more   less
