I traveled to Varanasi, last week for a painting camp with 30 other people. My room was facing the ghat and it was just great. the hotel staff was very hospitable. Food was great. All sites were very close by to walk to. will definitely visit again and stay at Palace on the Steps only......

An early morning train arrival and mooch around the maze of alleys brought us to the Ajay Guesthouse in January 2008. Having viewed another place before Ajay, this place won us over with the spectacular views over the Ganges and the ghats. This really is the plus of this guesthouse - the rooms are basic, the building creaked (we had... More

Ajays Guesthouse is really worth it if you get the panoramic suite. Defenetly one of the best romos in town. Take some earplugs with youm gets noizy! Sanjay is a very good manager and will help you with everything you need. Place do needs some refurbish done!

I've pre booked 2 rooms online. Got the ghats facing rooms with an attached balcony. One of the rooms was pretty small in size. The toilets were even smaller!! The ghats view in the morning and evening was very nice. The staff were well behaved and was courteous and very helpful.

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.
