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

What a great location to see the Ganges from the rooftop restaurant. Although the room was clean and comfortable every other aspect of this hotel was below average, hot water was not always available. The service was very ordinary especially from the restaurant staff and the food was plain and boring. Getting to this hotel requires alot of walking down... More

Great location, great staff and very tasty and reasonably priced food. Very generous breakfast included and a free trip to or from the airport. Room was ok, small and without a view, but I was very comfortable - I was even given a new electric heater for the chilly December nights. I loved my stay here, cheers guys and happy... More

Varanasi is a place full of life and full of activity, noise, color and smell that not give rest to the senses. That's why you need a quiet place, clean, pleasant and safe return to it after a day filled with activity or in between. The highlight of the place is the roof overlooking the river. There is no better... More
