Very nice hotel. Clean and tidy. Across the road from the train station. Restaurant on site - available for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Security as exit points. Not too far from the Ganges - tuk tuk ride away.

I stayed here on a recent trip to Varanasi. The hotel is located in front of Varanasi Cant railway station so it was a perfect location. However we were few friends from Delhi and drive up to Varanasi. The Staff is helpful, friendly and always available on request. Rooms were very clean, bed were comfortable. Room was quite spacious, and... More

Front desk staff were not any better and appeared to ignore you in preference to their own . Close to train station (part of a tour group that arrived... More

The hotel is located across from the train station. its 15 min or so ride to the ghanges river. The lobby is nice so you would think the rooms are nice...right? wrong...my room smelled horrible. The staff for the most part are comatose and go thru the motions....they should realize that without tourists they would not have jobs. I'm really... More

Stayed here for two nights and while it was nice to be close to the train station for an early morning departure, it was pretty far from old Varanasi and the ghats. The supper we had one night here was terrible (other people in our group were very disappointed as well) but the breakfast was ok. The rooms were clean... More

This is right across from Varanasi Train Station, so hectic outside and the location (aside from the train) is not the best. The smell really lets this place down, and the tiles don't feel or look clean in the rooms (had to walk with socks on as they felt grimy). Beds were hard, views from the 3rd floor over train...

We were 'stuck' in this hotel for a whole day due to a flight delay. Rooms are adequate and clean, but facilities non-existent. This has to be the noisiest hotel in Varanasi - located directly at the railway station (with thousands of pilgrims for Shivaratri festival arriving and departing. Too far to walk into town centre and not a place... More
