Our 3-night stay over New Year 2015 was a mixed experience. The property is generally quite lovely, though there are small inconsistencies, like peeling paint and slightly mis-laid fixtures. Location couldn't be better, with gorgeous views off the roof and balcony. Restaurant is solid, very good food and great service. But on two occasions we were stood up by the... More

Beautiful heritage hotel right on the ghat. Easy to access to Life on the Ganges. Wonderful breakfast. Excellent vegetarian dinner. Staff so very enthusiastic. Free boat trips to morning and evening rituals

My husband is a professional photographer and Varanasi was number one on his priority list. Originally, we were going to stay at a fancier place in the city but we're so glad that we didn't. We arrived in the evening and were immediately greeted by the staff and donned with scarves to welcome us. Since we arrived in the evening,... More

If you come to Varanasi mainly to experience the Ghats, this hotel is ideal: it is built on a ghat and is walking distance to all the main ghats, including the evening aarti ceremony. The haveli was built by the royal family of Nepal over a century ago. It has a limited number of rooms and a beautiful courtyard. Make... More

If you're planning a trip to Varanasi and wish to be on the Ganges, then I would recommend this Haveli. It is merely steps down to the river bank. It has a few rooms with views of the river (the view is only good if you're sitting in your bed looking out because the window is very low placed on... More

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
