Good view and options available for single travelers as they have new, neat single rooms overlooking the Ganga. Staff friendly and helpful. They have excellent thali in their restaurant and can provide beer if you ask for it. I would stay here again.

The waiting staff were friendly and helpful and the location overlooking the Ganges was great (but difficult to get to as the streets are so narrow). However, the rooms were small and there was no TV reception.

If you are going to Benares then its surely for the Ganga and there's hardly another place in Benares which can match the view that this place offers. I have been to this place quite many times, both with family and while on official tours, everytime it captivates the soul with its 'out-of-world' view of the Ganga and the Dashashwamedh... More

My friend and i booked four nights in Hotel Alka after finding it through TripAdvisor, and I can say we were both so happy that we did. The location works in every possible way for the hotel. It stands about 5 minutes walking distance to the spot on the Dashashwmedh Ghat where the Ganga aarti takes place. Similarly its barely... More

The hotel is located on one of the ghats in Varanasi. It is near to the Dashwamedh ghat which is the most famous ghat in Varanasi where the Ganga aarti takes place. As we were early, we had to wait for our room to be available. We had our breakfast till then. There are common bathrooms as well for the... More

Booked this hotel after a brief search online. The co-ordination and booking over the phone and email was satisfactory. They arranged for a pickup from railway station, and it is highly recommended to ask for a pickup because otherwise you are sure to get fleeced by the auto walas. The location is bang on, if you are looking to stay... More

This hotel is an ideal hotel for every heritage loving traveler. It is best located, right in front of the Ganges and very close to Golden Temple. Great hospitality and service, especially Mr. Rajesh , very peace loving and soft spoken person. I admire his service as he helped me while I suffered from fever.
