we stayed here for 2015 Holi, the hotel is nicely located on the river and yet not far from the hustle and bustle of Varanasi which can be over powering if you are visiting the city for the first time and takes a day or two to soak in to live with all the rush, the lanes are frozen in... More

We only had one night to spend in Varanasi, so I was glad our friends booked this hotel for us. It's an easy walk along the ghats to see the cremation site (which is probably why many tourists are visiting Varanasi), and the view of the river, day and night, was very pretty. Our room was well-equipped with all the... More

We stayed here because it was the only hotel we could find on short notice when visiting the city on business. I generally would not stay on the Ganges...all the guesthouses I have seen have been very sketchy. This boutique hotel, accessible only by boat, is very special and I would definitely visit again. It is very basic but has... More

The position is just about the only thing it has going for it.. But having said that it is the location that is important in a two day visit.. So all else becomes rather irrelevant The outside and inside are rather beautiful.. Rooms are fine except the bathroom takes the worldwide prize in its ghastly impractical design The problem is...

We were unfortunate in Varanassi as it rained for much of the time-the place itself is a litter strewn dump, even by comparison to other places we have visited in India. Our room at the hotel itself was decent although everything felt slightly damp in there-towels, loo rolls,etc. The restaurant is more like a very basic canteen although we did... More

I liked this hotel a lot. The wifi wasn't great, but at least it was free. The room was nice and the sleep quality was decent - some barking dogs interfered with my dreams one night, but earplugs worked well to fix that! My shower was fine once it warmed up. The location was great. We usually hopped on boats... More

Went there with a few friends in April 2014. A beautiful palace turned into a heritage hotel - warm and courteous staff - very helpful. the best part of the hotel is it is right there on a ghat - and they provide boats for you to visit various places. I think 2 rides per day or 2 rides for... More

My second time in Varanasi... so this time, I decided to stay near the Ganges and I opted for this hotel... and I don't regret it. I was a bit scared based on other reviews, but don't think twice, and if you can afford it, book it. We arranged the airport pick-up with the hotel, it's advisable as the most... More

We had 2 rooms on the third floor with one front facing the Ganges. The view is fantastic. I cannot fault the rooms service or location and quite frankly it was a relief not to stay in the main throng of this city. Others have said the hotel is only accessible by boat but this isn't quite true. You can... More

The building itself is quite nice, but surrounded by emply and run down buildings so although this is not the hotels fault, it doesn't give it a good appearance. We were greeted well and shown to our room which although a bit basic, was clean and pleasant enough. However, both the towels and the bedding were very damp and although... More
