This is an excellent place to stay while in Varanasi…It is located right on the Ganges River, with great views of the ghats and within walking distance of the burning ghat. We booked guided tours of the river both in the early morning and evening, as well as a walking tour of the city. It has an excellent rooftop restaurant... More

I stayed at Rashmi Guest House at the end of January and had a great room overlooking the Ganges, with monkeys in the trees outside and a view two large great danes watching the scenes below from their own nearby rooftop. The Guest House is pretty easy to find and located right on one of the ghats. The hotel's restaurant... More

I intuitively knew right away that this hotel is where I want to stay when I saw it on a sunrise boat ride on the Ganges. When I spotted A Palace on the River, Rashmi Guest House. I was determined that I was going to get a room there. They were booked for that night but they had a cancellation... More

My brother and I stayed at Rashmi Guest House last week. The location is great and morever, the service is excellent. People take care of you from the moment you leave your vehicle, since you need to walk about 10 minutes to reach the hotel. The hotel is located next to the Ganges River, the view is impressive. We had... More

The first thing about the hotel - great location! It is located on the Manmandir Ghat - very close to the more popular Dashashwamedh ghat. Because of it being located right on one of the Ghats, one cannot reach the hotel by car. One has to walk up to the hotel. But the hotel will send someone to pick you... More

Great location close to the Ganges, though must be approached on foot (porters will help you bring your bags). Lots of stairs to climb to your room. Basic room. Spotty wifi. Breakfast was very basic with little more than toast, fruit, boiled eggs, and juice. Bathroom had very little hot water, low water pressure, with the shower open in the... More
