I'm sorry to say that this hotel is not what it once was. It used to offer clean rooms at decent prices, and a good range of well-made food. It's true that I was here in the off-season, and their crew was greatly reduced: but my complaints don't stem from the food, or even the service of those who clean... More

Positives: location is good for walking along the ghats (at the last ghat) and a 50 rupee tuktuk from old town market, food in the restaurant is nice (Mudfle Eastern especially!) Neutrals: Negatives; Aircon kept going off and it's hot in a Varanasi! I went down twice to ask someone to come up and look at it and no one... More

We stayed at this hotel for 2 nights in November. The rooms are very basic and not very clean against European standards but acceptable by Indian standards. Facilities at the hotel are good, laundry, money exchange and wifi available in reception. The restaurant has a good menu of Indian and Chinese food, which is well pricedand tasted good. The hotel...

The sound insulation in the rooms is non existent so you will be subjected to the noises of traffic and the general noise of a busy part of Varanasi (bring your earplugs!). The rooms are very basic as you would expect at most Indian hotels in this price category however distinctly behind the pack on some of the basics -... More

Room very basic, air con extremely loud. Shower was a little temperamental. However with so much to see and do we only used the room for sleeping and it fulfilled its purpose at a very reasonable price. The restaurant was excellent although a little dingy and slow service but felt safe eating here. The ginger masala tea was excellent. The... More

If this is one of the best places to stay in Varanasi, Varanasi has a problem. The hotel is poorly maintained and cleaned. The manager is extremely arrogant and not very helpful. The rooms are old, dusty and stink. Air conditioner was extremely load and home so several dove families, towels and sheets are dirty and holes everywhere. The restaurant... More

The room is clean and the people are nice and friendly. Hot water, television, efficient room service when needed. The food is delicious and they have a great variety of choices which you can all enjoy safely because they cook and wash with purified water. There is WI-FI available in the lobby and the location allows for walking-distance trips around... More

Not sure what the same amount of money gets you elsewhere in Varanasi but the 1500 rupees we paid gets you: a reliably hot shower, a great location (short walk to assi ghat), reliable wifi in the lobby and access to a restaurant with friendly service and decent food downstairs. Cons: the room was dark and damp, no daily cleaning... More

"The warm welcome and the great people along with the staff made my first visit memorable to this place.... It has a homely atmosphere... Food is mind blowing. The Wi-Fi in the lobby is a nice bonus.. The " ginger lemon honey tea " and " paneer butter masala " are my favorites... No regrets... Only happiness and nice memories...... More
