We loved the hospitality of Prakash, Kamal and Deepak. They are genuinely nice people and Prakash was great to deal with on email and in person. They even managed to make room 19 available for us as it was our honeymoon! The restaurant dinner was served at 830pm which was a bit late for us so we never tried the... More

The name of the Hotel is Hotel Ganges View (or at least there was no "holy" in the one i stayed in). The architecture of the place is nice, an old beautiful house with nice terraces and rooms. The decoration is pretty with antiques everywhere. However the rooms are very basic, aircondition only works when one is acutally in the... More

It is a hidden gem. An old Haveli (Palace) converted into a hotel with old world charm overlooking the Ganga. Fantastic and would recommend this hotel for the peaceful ambiance and warmth. The dinner is not be missed.

The Ganges View Hotel (not Holy Ganges) is a wonderful converted haveli full of quirky charm and more than a hint of a stay at grandma's house. The rooms are cute, oddly shaped, and eclectically furnished. Ours was on the top floor and had a good view of Assi Ghat. Beds are comfortable, a/c is adequate (we visited in the... More

The staff and the manager of the hotel told us that outside guest are not welcome in the restaurant! I find this a little bit strange. Hospitality service is... More

Hotel Ganges View is a stunning, historical guesthouse perfectly situated on Assi Ghat. Our room had a small terrace which afforded wonderful river views. The rooms and surrounds are tastefully decorated. You feel as though you have gone back in time. The vegetarian buffet dinner is superb. Staff were attentive and kind. The resident Daschunds were an added surprise. There... More
