It is an amazing hotel with a very well trained staff who look after the needs of the customers. It is said when a service or a product meets the specification then it is known as "Customer's satisfaction" but when one finds more than the expectation then it is called "Customer's delight". I will not go to those usual trappings... More

We recently spent 1 night in Varanasi (on a private organized tour) and stayed at the Gateway Hotel. Most of the descriptions here are accurate. This is an older hotel, and you can feel it in the architecture of the building, the hallways, doors, keys, etc. Modern amenities have been added to the rooms, but they still have a slightly... More

I stayed with my family last month at this beautiful hotel surrounded with lash green lawns and greenary. This is the best five star hotel at Varanasi. The room was clean and beautifully set with all required amenities and facilities, grounds, pathways, pool, lobby, restaurant all were cleaned and very well maintained. Staff were very much hospitable and made us... More

We expected a lot for a hotel over 250 USD but we were disappointed. This used to be a Taj hotel and we expected Taj quality. The room/ suite was simple, had no "vented tub" nor the promised garden view. When I mentioned this at the front desk we started the following conversation: Q: Where is the "vented tub "... More

Although this Hotel gives dual hints of both Heritage as well as business Property. I think after staying there i realize its one of the best options in a five star budget available in Varanasi. The reasons are many: 1.Location: Calm and Clean in comparison to a filthy and chaotic city. If you don't prefer the hotel dining options then... More

This is certainly a popular venue for Indian weddings and the hotel has the facilities to cater for more than one at any one time. So during our stay it was a treat to see the preparations for two different ceremonies. It is certainly in a good spot to stay because it has lovely grounds well away from the general... More

It's a lovely hotel with beautiful surrounding gardens, but some features need improvement. My bathroom was not very clean, with a few hairballs left on the floor, and the sink was clogged. But the breakfast buffet was the part that ruined it for me. Stayed there two nights, and each time it was hard to find a seat at the... More
