The first thing I would like to say about this hotel is the Location. Being on the banks of Ganges, it was an experience as the only way to get in and out of the hotel was by boat. As our main agenda was to explore the ghats and surroundings, this was an easy walk to all the places we... More

Staying with my daughter in a Temple in the holiest city on the holiest river in India was magical. Our room facing the Ganges was off the Temple , a beautifully calm haven of peace amongst the colourful, exciting, ordered chaos of Varanasi. Perfect, gently attentive staff are there to welcome you as you arrive ghat at the private by... More

Though a bit far from some of the highlights of Varanasi, we could not have asked for a better place to stay. The staff was extremely attentive (my friend got bit by a dog and they called a doctor and escorted us to him and even bought the shots she needed!) and the hotel was just beautiful. There is an...

My sister in law & I stayed for 3 days & found the hotel to be perfectly placed for experiencing life on the Ganges. The patio / balcony facing the Ganges is the perfect place to read & watch life on the river & the small restaurant gladly brings down cold drinks to keep one refreshed. The staff were always...

Beautiful heritage property. Lovely rooms. Good service. The best part was that it was on the Ganges with its own Ghat. Overlooking the Ganges the view at sunrise and sunset and all day in between was a treat. Cars cannot reach the hotel. You arrive on a boat and depart on a boat. They happily arrange for boats for sunrise... More

The charm and customer service here cannot be beat. The staff was friendly and accommodating from the start, especially Anupam, who went out of his way to make our trip a success. On my first day exploring the city, I had an unfortunate run-in with a stray dog. Anupam tracked down a doctor and worked the timings so I could... More

The Jukaso Varanasi is a heritage property leased by Welcome Group from a young owner, who is passionate about preserving heritage and is a lover of music. The hotel is situated at Bhosle Ghat. The best advantage of this property is that you can experience Ganga in different hues, the morning glory when the sun arrives at dawn, the afternoon... More

The Jukaso Ganges hotel is a great hotel right on the river Ganges and only 15 minutes boat ride (it is only accessible by boat). The location is very convenient, next to a palace, and just 10 - 20 minutes boat ride from other ghats along the river. The rooms are clean and I recommend rooms on the top level.... More

The hotel is old and full of character, including a 700 year-old shrine and lots of well-preserved or refurbished decorative stonework, but this does not make it a 4-star facility as advertised. It is at the quieter, less touristy end of the ghats and is the only building that we saw with shrubs planted outside. Our bed was comfortable, albeit... More

I stayed at Jukaso from April 2nd to 4th. My friend and I were there for a small holiday. Before we were leaving for Banaras my family and friends warned me about it being an unsafe place for two women to travel. However our experience there was completely opposite of what we heard. And I give huge credit to this... More
