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...

It may have slightly sullen staff and an oddly-inflexible approach to meal times (dinner is 8-9pm in the communal dining room), but a stay at the Ganges View is a unique experience. The old and extravagant hotel is decorated with antiques and beautiful paintings, and offers welcome respite and relaxation from the intense experience that is strolling the ghats of... More

What a superb view from the rooms and so close to the Ganges , virtually one minute from the river. The food was excellent and the service likewise. The rooms nice and clean. Theroom cleaning team could not be more helpful in fitting in with your timescale. There are a few steps to and in the building you should be... More

I booked this hotel thanks to the positive reviews I read on tripadvisor... but the place did even overcome the highest expectations: the architecture, the furniture, the rooms, the restaurant.. everything is almost perfectly thought to enrich the atmosphere which is magic. The hotel is located in front of the Gange, just few step from one of the most famous... More

We loved this hotel. It is situated right on the Ganges so was handy for exploring and for getting out on the river. Our room had a fantastic mural behind the bed and a good view of the Ganges. It was clean and comfortable. There are lots of interesting artefacts and antiques around the building. The food was really tasty... More

Went to Varanasi end October for two nights during an important festival. I had requested a room with a view and I was extremely fortunate to be given one at this busy time. Although, meals are taken in convivial setting I was abel to have a small table to myself for dinner on both nights. The dinner was absolutely delicious... More

You blew a fortune getting here, and you're going to stay in a tourist hotel a mile from the action? Get real!! This is the best option on the Ghats. Its at the quiet southern end (Varan--asi gets its name from this location), well above the water with taxi and street access but off the busy thoroughfares. Elegant; a throwback... More

Well kept with great decor all round and whilst service is good and helpful its not great. we had a great breakfast... More

A small 15 roomed property , impeccably maintained with nary a speck of dust is like you are a personal guest of a mionr indian royalty. The terrace garden on the first floor is very well maintained, and must be glorious in season. Tastefully placed bric a brac and traditional Indian antiquites and art lend an eclectic feel.
