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

We stayed two nights in this charming hotel. Obviously the location is superb, right on the banks of the Ganges, but the room was lovely too. Simple but clean and spacious. The food was excellent, served in a lovely dining room with a little library off it. The fabulous art collection and in-house artist were an added bonus. A perfect... More

We stayed for 2 nights in this hotel, booked by our travelagent. It is a beautiful hotel overlooking Assi Ghat in the South. They have created nice places with flowers and lots of green on the 1st and 2nd floor to relax and escape from the busy streets. They also serve a nice breakfast on these spots so you can... More

The Ganga View Hotel was simply the best place to stay in Varanasi. The rooms were more than ample, each richly appointed with antique furnishings. The numerous terraces provided many options for afternoon tea breaks or breakfast from the vibrancy of this mystical city. The proprietor Shashank and his staff were more than gracious. The food in the dining room... More

This hotel is superb in every respect. The location is perfect, sitting right at the Assi Ghat where religious ceremonies are conducted in the mornings and other cultural events pop up throughout the day. The hotel is beautiful. The terraces which look out over the Ganges are laden with gorgeous flower pots; small tables and chairs are available for relaxing.... More

This beautiful old mansion was a most wonderful oasis in the middle of an intense and overwhelming city. Our room was perfect, the public areas were immaculate, with beautiful paintings covering every wall. The food (breakfast and dinner) was memorable. Every night felt like coming home, very often to a musical concert. The guests were interesting and varied. The location... More

I wholeheartedly recommend this hotel. The rooms are wonderful and clean, and the common areas are plentiful and beautiful. Don't bother eating out as the best meals you will get will be in this hotel, and you will get to meet interesting people as well.

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.
