I stayed several times in Hotel Haifa. Its very close to assi ghat. That place is very people friendly place. The staffs r very well behaved in service. Food is also very great. And very special tea. Rooms are very clean and hygienic. Wanna Come here again and again. Biju Bhaiya is very helping and cooperative.

Simply awful. If possible stay far far far away from this place. While it's really close to the ghats the rooms are tired and dirty. Awful lighting throughout the corridors and stairs. Showers were luke warm at best (we were here during winter) and the heaters didn't work. To top it all off it was incredibly noisy so didn't get... More

I thought i'd stay for a day, but it ended up being really hot and muggy in town, so i stayed "one more day" four times. Everything was made really smooth as always by Mr. Biju, and by Mr. Arif in the restaurant, everything went well thanks to them. Mr. Biju also helped me with a local car rental, and... More

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
