Rashmi Guest House happens to be situated on the cleanest (or lets be honest, the only clean one) Ghaat of Varanasi ie the Manmandir Ghaat. And the credit goes to the owners Rashmi and Ajay themselves. Built right on the Ghaat overlooking steps that lead you to the Ganga, the Hotel has some stunning river view rooms that either let...

I stayed here for one night. The location is absolutely perfect for anything you would like to do in Varanasi. The rooms were clean, wifi worked, A/C worked well, and I had hot water. The front drakes helped me with activities I wanted and if you need a guide, ask for Pappu. If you are looking for great luxury, then... More

We stayed here as 3 friends for 1 night in river view room. The view is really impressive and it is good to wake up seeing Ganga. The location is also very convenient since it is close to Main Ghat. The hotel was generally clean. You can directly send them an email about your stay and ask for a car... More

Laundry delivery expected a huge tip for being able to actually find our clothes and deliver them before we lost them! The biggest gripe with this hotel was the insistent and overwhelming Pressure to take a guide. While charming, knowledgeable and helpful, the guide was, as always, leading us to spend money to gain access and "privileges"! Being told quite... More

All of Varanasi is for the young and fit stair climbers. this place is no exception. but good when you get there. I had a room looking onto the River through a tree which had tiny leaping monkeys in it, great fun to watch and I liked it all.

Believe, this is the best located hotel in Varanasi, hotel is around 50 meters from main Dashashwamedh ghat. To reach from airport/rail stations, taxi drops you around a Church near Gadolia crossing than take cycle-rickshaw Inr 20 and than hotel staff pickup. Stayed at a room without the view which is very very small but clean linen and small bathroom.... More

The location of Rashmi is what initially led us to this hotel. The staff were incredibly flexible when we had to change our travel plans and stay one less night. The rooms are very tiny but clean. The pro to having smaller rooms is having a wonderfully cool (AC) room to take a break in when the Varanasi heat gets... More
