We stayed here for a few nights in April. What a great experience! The people were super friendly and hospitable. The food was amazing as well. The view from the terrace and top rooms is awesome, your an see all the way down the Ganges and overlook the Assi Ghat. It's a great place to relax while watching the bustle... 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

A boutique hotel on the Assi Ghat, this is a beautiful Haveli that has been turned into a hotel! It has an excellent view, nice location. The place has been done up brilliantly, the interiors, the decor everything has a touch of traditional Indian royalty to it! The stay comes with complimentary dinner and breakfast which is Absolutely Delicious, we... More

The best thing is the location, the terrace overlooks the Ganges. A small guesthouse, originally a private house. There was a large group staying so we were given a rather small twin room at the back with a small basic shower room, it had a/c and was probably in fact quieter. Because of the timings of our guided trips we... More

The palace has beautiful terraces and enticing views. The ghat just opposite to the building is possibly the poshest one in town.Our room was ok, bathroom small and not very functional (overflowed after each shower). The atmosphere is somehow "genuine" but the place would significantly improve if managed by professionals. Breakfast is overrated and dinner is uninspiring.

This is a normal backpackers hotel not a hawali ,and it has posted pictures of a neighbouring hotel, ganges view.PLESE make sure you are not booking this hotel as we did by looking at the picture and ending up with paying thrice the price for the property.Hotel,food and rooms are bad.. only good thing is location.

They have put the photos of Ganges View hotel which is very nice hotel to Holi Ganges view which is not nice at all. We came with a 7 month old baby... More

This was the first hotel we stayed in on this trip to India and was the best. Great location, loads of character, nice staff and fantastic vegetarian food. The Indian breakfast option was delicious! The room was large and comfortable and quiet. The views from the terraces are fantastic. Go for an upper floor room if you can.

3 nights at this wonderful hotel. Next to The Ganges @ Assi Ghat. It´s colonial style and many terraces made it perfect for the stay. Staff went the extra way and they served me the most wonderful meals. It´s all vegetarian along Ganges and no alcohol. But being a meat lover, I have never tasted better veg. food than this!...

If you ask for every aspect of hospitality this hotel is par excellence. Let me enumerate. Location: Overlooking and walking distance from Assi ghat. Ambience: Superb. I wanted to film every nook and corner, especially their paintings, furniture are a delight to see. We booked two rooms both had unique decors and very tastefully done with period furniture. The place... More
