This is one place that I would recommend every person visiting Varanasi, to stay in. The rooms without the view are small but very clean and comfortable. I did not find it necessary to stay in the river facing rooms because being on the ghat, it made more sense to walk down to the ghat and enjoy rather than watch... More

What a privilege to be right on the Ganges in this most special of cities. The view from the rooftop restaurant is heart-stirring, looking out over the serene river with its soft colours or over the jumble of houses to the left and right. The hotel staff were helpful and obliging; the restaurant staff less so. (Take mosquito repellent for... More

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
