This is a very good hotel at accessible location. Temple and ganges are approachable by walk and also rickshaw. Food served was also good, how ever you can find cheaper food outside the hotel. Hotel staff were decent and helpful. They also organize tours with private operators. Rooms were good and nice.

I want to truly inform new visitors to India and to Varanasi and be fair to this hotel, so this review needs some context. I'm new to India and from the US so I come from a place of excellent creature comforts. I also began my journey to India, during to hottest part of the year, with an overnight stay... More

Good stay there Staff were very helpful, on request they arrange a car for us. Our flight was late for about 2 hours but hotel driver was there which was great. The check-in was very smooth with a welcome drink while our bags were taken care of. The room was pretty decent and big.

The hotel is an palatial home converted to modern hotel. The rooms are quite big as compared to other hotels. In room furniture is very minimalistic missing a few must like center table and chairs. Kitchen is not functional from 9.30 pm to 7.30am in the morning which makes difficult for late diners and early riser who require bed tea.... More
