Hotel Alka cannot be forgotten because of its beauty and view it has got. Clean environment and purity in air along the ghats; far away from hustle of vehicles, what makes it calm are the enchanting sanskrit aarti mantras and the temple bells. At 5:00 am reddish sun sparkles its colour of life and it sooner glorifies the entire city.... More

I have to visit Varanasi last week. As I was travelling alone I was little comprehensive. But It was wonderful stay. staffs were courteous and cooperative. The view was great. One can just sit at the green lawn and relax. Food is fine. A complete value for money.

Our maiden visit to Varanasi was made spectacular by stay in Alka...Right on the banks of Ganges, its facilities,service, food n drinks are by far the best in Varanasi as we had visited other famous hotels there too. Special mention for Munna who was unparalleled in providing whatever we needed!!Highly recommended!!!

We had a great stay at Alka; great location right on the water not only for the views but also easy to find if lost in the maze of alleys. Friendly staff and clear, comfortable rooms. A variety of rooms for all budgets; just know that "AC" rooms have an air-coolant system with a special fan, not actually air conditioner... More

There is a nice roof top restaurant which also looks over the Ganges. Every meal we had was good and the staff were lovely and helpful. It is also close... More

Clean and good hotel, staff were very friendly and there is a great shady terrace where you can chill, enjoy the view of the Ganges and eat good food. Seemed the best in terms of value we could find in Varanasi. Good location too.

My parents, father, 73 and mother 67 look forward for an annual holiday trip and this time they wanted to visit Benaras. In April, this year we planned our trip. My mother wanted to stay close to Dassaswamedh Ghat and wished to spend time in the boat visiting and exploring the ghats. A good friend, also a travel writer recommended... More
