The room was clean but rather small. AC worked well. Bathroom was OK, pretty big given the size of the room. The hotel is located quite far out from the main city but that is a blessing with the noise of Varanasi. Plus it was interesting walking around the area. The food is pretty good but they ran out of... More

Had a brilliant stay at Welcome Inn at Ganges. The rooms are really clean and rather large. The location is about a 20 minute walk from Assi Ghat but the staff will walk you there and show you the quickest route. The route itself is something to enjoy as the majority is above the Ganges with some fantastic views. The... More

We really enjoyed our stay at Welcome inn at Ganges. Our room had a separate lounge and bedroom. It was very spacious and clean, complete with air conditioner, cable TV and plenty of hot water. Wifi worked well in our room. The inn is located in a quiet residential area near the Ganges. Initially it seemed a fair distance to... More

had a great time in Varanasi, largely thanks to the super helpful, knowledgeable and friendly staff of "Welcome Inn at Ganges". our room was very clean and big. the only thing is that the showers work in a rather strange manner, as promised, there was hot water, but it turned out it only comes out of a tap that's in...

The place felt wonderfully friendly, warm and welcoming. It is a new Inn and there are a few things to work on such as hot showers and phone for room service, however the spaciousness of the rooms, including living area and balcony, as-well as the fantastic food made it a place I would all the same recommend!

After staying at several noisy and dusty places in Varanasi, we decided to try this place. It was spotlessly clean, and very very quiet. I can say in my experience that this combination in varanasi is very rare. I slept like a baby and was very happy to stay there. Not so congested like in the ghats. Management seemed very... More

I really enjoyed my stay at the Welcome Inn. The staff and especially the manager, Abishek, are very friendly and helpful, and they organise tours, taxis etc. at very reasonable prices (I checked them against a travel agent's quotes, which were about double). Also, the food they serve is excellent, the rooms are very spacious and comfortable, and they have... More
