We were happy to be able to book a room this year after trying unsuccessfully twice in the past and even luckier to extend our stay when we needed to. Beautiful decor, especially the dining room. Wonderful friendly owner and staff, very friendly helpful people. Basic breakfast and wonderful dinners! Upper rooms have terraces with river view. On Assi Gat... More

I feel better than best for services.The hotel offers a big choice of high-quality services, like: free Wi-Fi internet connection and need to any anything then you can order by phone to services department. Don't hesitate to ask to our staff that is pleased to help you among spectacles, concerts and other maybe not so famous events.

Walking up to the front door we knew we were in for a treat and we're not disappointed! Beautifully and dotingly cared for every day. Shashank & family (owners) knew how to spoil their guests and we were treated like family. What a perfect spot to enjoy all that Varanasi has to offer.

The rooms were of various standard, but room no 19 was really nice. Homely atmosphere in the hotel, breakfast good, felt you were in someone´s private dining room. Nice little areas here and there for relaxation/reading.

The Holy Ganges View is not to be confused with its similar sounding counterpart Hotel Ganges View, which is a much more premier boutique property also near Assi Ghat. It is easy to get confused as both names sound very similar. The Holy Ganges View is strictly a budget hotel, and for the price of less than Rs. 2000 per... More

We spent Christmas in this hotel, and every morning from 6 am you heard singers and dancers performing at the Ganges bank. If you spent 4 nights like us, it can get on your nerves. But apart from that, this is a wonderful, peaceful place with excellent food, where you can even relax during the busy days. Recommendable!

This is absolutely one of the best places you can ever hope to stay. Spent 2 nights in this heritage bungalow on the ganges, overlooking the ghats. And what a time we had. It was like time travel to another era. Great rooms, lovely views, great balconies to chill at, and very friendly people. If you're at Varanasi, this is... More

Our final night in Varanasi and staying in the Assi Ghat area we wanted somewhere close by for dinner. The small basement restaurant of this beautifully restored hotel served up the most delicious Indian food - reasonably priced (our bill came to 1300R)and with great service. The live sitar music added to the atmosphere.

Varanasi is a rather unique place and not necessarily comfortable for all people who land there. There should be a quick escape route provided for those who find it too difficult. We found the Ganges View to be one of the highlights of our trip to India. Part of it was the craziness of Varanasi. The hotel is small-ish, very... More

I’ve been coming here for 20 years. The owner, Shashank, never stops working on the place. It’s a work of love for him, and something is different and more beautiful each time I come. 20 years ago, it was very simple and the decor was plain, but now there is art everywhere and the rooms are very comfortable and beautifully...
