    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

Best was its location which is almost on a ghat which makes easy to go for boat ride and aarti, also this particular ghat is very much clean with very... 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.

    Staff friendly, rooms were simple but adequate - comfortable etc Restaurant at the top - very nice! Straight on to the river Ganges from your doorstep. Great! Very happy with our decision to stay here.

    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

    Rashmi Guest House provided a comfortable place to return to after an intense but intriguing day in Varnasi. While at Rashmi, we stayed in one of their mid range rooms which was small but tastefully decorated. The hotel staff provided excellent service and were attentive to all of our needs. The best features, though are the outstanding location and the... More

    Great location - right on Ganga. Can get a boat each morning at sunrise up and down the river. The room you want to get is the 'Ganga View' room. More expensive but worth it for the amazing view. Rooms are small and bathrooms are old but clean and sufficient. Great tour guides too... ask for Kishan or Golu. Breakfast... More

    The location in Old City is fantastic! This guest house is located at the top of a ghat, with views of the many colorful boats that await riders for sunrise and sunset Ganges River rides. Morning and evening ceremonies also take place along the river here, and although a bit early, the charming sound of the bells and singing can... More
