We got the room in an ideal location, with an amazing view and a big round bed, but that's where the positives end. It's not the cleanest and they don't really clean and/or change sheets or even provide towels and toilet paper until you let them know (and they're approachable - no problem there). One of the windows was missing... More

Choosing a hotel in Varanasi is a daunting task, if visiting for the first time. The list is endless & exhaustive as each one is claiming to be the best with great views, great rooms, great reviews, great pictures to distract ones decision! I had to make an informed choice as my travel dates were near & I was clueless.... More

Don't come to Varanasi expecting a tourist experience, this is India at its nitty grittiest, the real reason to be to in India....if not for the mobile phones and motor bikes you could be in biblical times...dirt strewn, narrow, winding streets and alleyways populated by cattle, dogs, pigs and goats and the beautiful Indian women in the fabulous colourful saris,...

It has been a fantastic experience, I recomend all guest go here to enjoy the authentic Varanasi. Very polite people, clean rooms and a good price. 24 hours electricity (It is very strange in India..), but the best thing is the views the hotel has.

I was lucky enough to find Ajay Guest House on my first night in Varanasi. the view from my beautifully balcony room is stunning, right by the river side you can see the whole way up and down the river with the sun rising at over the river. 30 seconds walk from the gats and 5 minuets from the main...

We thank the staff of the Hotel (Mr. Dinesh in particular) for their commendable service and praiseworthy etiquette and address that they extended to us during our sojourn there last week. The hotel is neat and clean and well located on the bank of the Ganges. The hotel personnel are responsive and well mannered and always try to provide good... More

I shared my bed with a myriad of insects. The owners had no clue how to run a hotel and spent their time trying to get more money for less service. We dined in a cage with the monkeys outside, Kaloo the German Shepherd was more helpful than the staff, with the exception of Lalit who was the only shining... More

There wasn't a lot to love about this place, but I'll start by giving it my best shot. To be fair, the guesthouse is well located right in the centre of the ghats and close to all the "ghat action". Some rooms do also have good Ganga views. I was also there during the Kumbh Mela which probably made it... More
