About 15 minutes prepaid autorickshaw drive from Varanasi railway station. Fare Rupees 245. If you take transport from Homestay, fare will be more than double. Location of the B & B is in one of the side roads approachable by car. Area is relatively clean and quiet compared to main roads. Assi ghat is the nearest ghat and is approximately... More

Good spacious rooms, standard size bathroom and excellently maintained. We had been provided with the roof top room. This will give you feel of little deserted/unattended but we enjoyed the privacy and my 2.5 yrs son enjoyed the open terrace attached to our room. If you have problem in climbing steps, avoid the roof top room. It is 15 mins... More

From first contacting Harish to book a room for our 4 night stay, to the time we left he and his family delivered all you could ask or expect of any Homestay B&B. He arranged our Airport pickup, made sure we got good advice on what to see and do, and sorted out transport at reasonable cost, including an evening... More

Harish was always very quick to respond to e-mails booking the accomodation and dealing with change of plans necessitated by flight cancellations. He advised that our stay coincided with the Holi Festival and to book train tickets early and forwarded a helpful sight on how to do this and offered his help. The airport pickup by rickshaw was very efficient... More

Varanasi is amazing, but very intense, and having a good home base to explore it from makes all of the difference. With its quiet but reasonably central location, cleanliness, and especially the service, this is precisely what the Varanasi Home Stay provided for me. The owner, Harish, and his family were wonderful in anticipating the needs of the western traveler.... More
