Visited this hotel for the third time in 2 years. As per my previous reviews it is in a great location and the rooms are clean and comfortable. It is however in need for some general maintenance and a bit of TLC. Our room had large areas of damp and the paint was peeling off, the outside furniture by the... More

Varanasi is not the easiest place for visitors to navigate. Jukaso's location seems to present logistical challenges but overcoming them is well worth doing. Staying right in the middle of the Ghat area--being able to walk around and take boat trips from the hotel's front steps is a huge advantage. The hotel itself has a lot of character--especially the public... More

One of the few hotels which is located directly at the shores of the river ganges overlooking some ghats. Only a few hundred meters from the ceremony ghats and from the cremation place. Walking distance into Varanasi Golden Temple area. The hotel is of modest quality but in excellent location.

If you're going to go to Varanasi then staying at a place with views of the Ganges is ideal. It was peaceful, with a great little restaurant attached (best tandoori chicken on whole trip), but no alcohol. The town is mad so this was a great option. Certainly not 5 star but nice atmosphere. Easy to take boat rides for... More

One should Call the hotel from the airport because staff from the hotel will come and pick you up from one appointed Place on the river. Our taxidriver had a hard time finding the Place, but we managed at the end to find the Place. We stayed in room 204 which has a great view of the Ganges. The Public... More

I booked 3 nights here and it is a total scam On booking they ask you to wire prepayment (to be fair not uncommon in India). We paid for a deluxe river view room. After we arrive they gave us a room in the back of the hotel far from the river. They claimed it had a "river view" since... More

We arrived at night by boat, and it was lovely. We were greeted with marigold garlands and glasses of juice. We were in Room 401 on the top terrace, which requires climbing one flight of stairs. We couldn't keep the window undraped because of terrace which others used, but the views from the terrace are fabulous. There is also a... More

The tiny streets near to the river in Varanasi are too small for cars, so it is necessary to transfer to the Jukaso Ganges Hotel by boat. What a delightful and exciting way to arrive, especially late in the day. Set on one of the ghats, the stepped embankments which line the river, this hotel really is in a perfect... More

This is my third day staying here without hot water. I have asked, begged for a different room, but the one I reserved a/c is broken also for at least three days. My room has a broken shade, the coffe pot was broken on arrival. The service is unfriendly, unsmiling. The location is fantastic, the public areas good, and the... More
