The hotel is divided into a newer building and an old building. In the old side the rooms very much fit the budget bill - mine was internal, with no real windows, noisy (you can hear people in the room next door using their bathroom). But the upside (for India) was no street noise, so I actually slept well. The... More

As soon as we arrived, our group visited some rooms and lots of them had a very strong cigarette's smoke smell (specially the rooms at the 'oldest' building). That's why the most part of the group chose the rooms at the 'new' building, paying more for it. The others, including me, chose the noisy rooms left, that had the main... More

A multi storey hotel, with adequate facilities, but very close (3 minutes walk) to one part of the River, which is where you want to be. Restaurant was ok, we had breakfast, lunches and one dinner here, but nothing special. If you ask, they will exchange money for you at the desk near the restaurant. WiFi was only in the... More

Efficient early check-in & welcome. Big room with effective fan and really powerful hot shower. Just what was required after 14hrs on a train. Had lunch in the hotel restaurant - service was friendly, if a bit confused at time. Their vegetable jalfrezi was how it should be, hot and spicy and the special Haifa soup was a meal in... More

Hotel Haifa has a great location - a short walk to the river and shops with anything you need just outside the front door. The staff are very helpful - esp. if you need taxis or any other service. The rooms are clean and the restaurant downstairs is a favorite in South Varanasi.

Rooms are clean. Staff are friendly and helpful. Free wifi was available with good range. Not expensive. Close to the Ganga shores and other tourist attractions. Close to banaras hindu university. Recommend to choose Haifa hotel if visiting Varanasi.

Everyone was so accommodating, and the location was perfect for us. The rooms were clean, and the staff was polite. The food was great also. It is an easy place to get transportation, but it is also an easy walk to the Ganges River and many other attractions.

I loved our stay here. The staff is amazing and the restaurant was absolutely delicious! We hired drivers for entire days which is the way to go. Be sure to use the family at the corner for your laundry if necessary. You must stay here!!
