I loved my visit to Varanasi and the location of this hotel is second to none. However, the air conditioner constantly switched off resulting in me waking up in a sweat each night. The wifi was inconsistent. My room was very noisy and I was often woken at dawn by a very loud woman. And most annoying, I had a... More

We stayed here for 3 nights, the rooms are very small but there is a fridge & a safe, although we had to ask for help with the safe twice as it wouldn't open & someone turned the fridge off. The air con is very loud, although this does help to drown out the noise outside, it also goes off... More

We stayed three nights and four days. This place trumps on location... The main reason I chose to stay here... This allowed me to attend the early morning prayers of aarti that I would otherwise never be able to reach... I was also able to go to Manikarnika Ghat at midnight because it was walking distance. The owner Mr. Tiwari... More

If you are looking for a 'real' India experience, Varanasi would be it! Simply describing it wouldn't do it justice - it needs to be lived. As for this hotel, it is def one of the nicer ones in the old parts of town, right on a ghat, and super close to the main ghat. Location is fantastic. Bear in... More

You pay for the location, room was small and mattress only 3 inches deep, had to sleep on top of the covers for extra comfort. Wouldn't really recommend but there is little choice around and compared to the other hotel we looked at it was good!! Restaurant staff can't be bothered and food average. Just go for drink and the... More

This hotel is Right on the bank of ganga on manmandir ghat. The view of the ganga is one of the best in varanasi. Tried Indian vegetarian food. It was also well prepared. Very tasty. Overall suggested for Indian and non Indian visitors. only negative point is the room size. All happening locations are in near vicinity. Worth staying.
