This is an amazing little place full of art from all over India. Painted walls and ceilings make it an absolute delight to stay here. The terrace overlooking the Assi Ghat is a great place to have breakfast. Rooms are on the smaller side.

Well situated for strolls along the ghats. A peaceful spot with wonderfully eclectic decor. Nice lounge and terrace area on second floor. We came with kids of 9 and 13, who were frankly a bit stressed by the throng and strong impressions in the streets for Varanasi, so for them the hotel was a great refuge from all that after... More

This place has a lot going for it, with lovely rooms, great communal dining (when we were there we were joined one night by an American SE Asian academic and another by the editor of a leading Mumbai newspaper) delicious vegetarian food and nice places to sit and relax. It feels more like a smart home not a hotel -... More

Good location, at the river with a nice terrace to rest and digest impressions from Varanasi. The hotel has a good atmosphere with colonial style furniture, nice dining room, and good rooms. Rooms at the upper levels is preferred, and they have a nice "lounge" outside so you can sit and overlook the river and city. Dining at the hotel... More

Filled with art and beautiful details combined with a great location makes this the best choice for a visit to Varanasi. Maybe not the best option for families though since the rooms are quite small and spread out. The hotel is located just above the ghats leading down to the river and you can reach the main ghats with either... More

This hotel screams "budget". I thought the staff were downright disinterested, and there seemed to be little attempt to keep the entrance clean. The reception area is just a small desk, and seems unwelcoming. The location is nice, right on the Assi Ghat, although perhaps a bit unsafe at night. Our room was adequate. It is fun to meet the...

The location of this hotel is top, right at the river, with a lovely terrace allowing to relax after your sightseeing. We also liked the flowers all around the place, and the neat and nicely decorated rooms. All was perfectly clean also. I was surprised to find Varanasi (at least along the Ganges), a rather quiet and relaxed city, for... More

We liked this hotel for its relaxed and friendly atmosphere but its jewel is the location and the terrace area which has great views over the Ganges and local life . Bit of a bugger if you drink or eat meat as this is a vegetarian hotel and all the hotels along the Ganges are not allowed to sell alcohol.... More

I wasn't sure what to expect since this was not my 1st choice to stay at in Varanasi. But I was pleasantly surprised and in retrospect quite pleased. I arrived on a delayed flight so it was at night when I was driven to the hotel and which took a very long time due to some of the worst traffic... More

We spent a wonderful three days at this hotel. Not only is it in great location, on the river and direct access to the ghats, it is in a delightful setting. The hotel is an old style building with large verandahs full of blooming flowers, where you can sit outside and watch wedding parties go by with great fanfare. The... More
