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

My family first saw this place on our first trip to Varanasi, and were thrilled to find Middle Eastern food! [That being said, my favorite thing that I've tried is actually the Kashmiri Kofta - their Indian food is great too. My only complaint food-wise is that it can take a while for the food to come, but it was... More

Don't even think for a second the cover picture on TripAdvisor resembles the room you're gonna get. This is the first hotel in my life where I find a skid mark in the toilet upon arrival. It must have been there for above . Everything screams filth in this hotel, even for Indian standard: the lobby, the restaurant, the beds.... More
