We had an unscheduled stopover in Varanasi and this was the hotel we had to use. It's an old Maharaja's Palace but nothing like the Taj inspired redevelopments. In fact, little has been done to this place since its conversion in the 1960s. The place is shabby albeit surrounded by antiques and old photos. Staff, however, went out of their... More

Rooms are pretty small and messy staff is OK food also not very good its an Ok hotel at an extremely high rates there are much more excellent hotels better than Pallavi much more cheaper if rates compared. there is nothing in it for which it should be called a heritage hotel avoid this hotel if you can.

You want to enjoy the feel and grandeur of a heritage hotel, this is the place you need to be. Pallavi International is the Hatwa Palace converted into a hotel property. Do not expect luxury as it’s a budget hotel and nothing too fancy about it. I am born in Varanasi and hence have plenty of relatives including my grandparents.... More

We stayed here for several nights as part of our tour of India and were quite pleased, overall, with this hotel. It was quite central to where we wanted to go and the service from staff was very good. We had a couple of little problems - shower and the bed but were able to sort these out. The meals... More

Since then the service and hospitality of this hotel has deteriorated a lot. the hotel is far away from everything but you can go to any place by a rickshaw and its a heritage property. this time i find the hotel is almost vacant. you have only...

Located very near the main temple area and the ghats in Chetgunj and it is the palace of the Hathwa Raj of Gopalgunj North Bihar converted into a wonderful cozy hotel keeping the palace intact. Stay there to get a feeling of the Maharajas and become one with their service and pampering.

The hotel is about 2Km from Kashi Vishwanath Temple and Ganga Ghats. Our room was reasonably sized. The furnture seems to be ageing and looked very old. One can not control A/c Temp (all rooms A/c are centrally controlled) in the room and one can either put it on or off. We found staff very co-operative. The breakfast was really... More
