We stayed in the basement rooms for 550 per night in a very clean double room with own bathroom. The room is a little bit old, but it's cozy and well maintened. Only a window to the corridor, but the corridor has big windows so a lot of fresh air and no bad smell. The location was perfect for us:... More

Best hotel for the people who are visiting first time to Varanasi. Hotel staff are very friendly and they help your requirement in Varanasi without getting cheated by other people. Rooms are clean and Open air restaurant is good but we have to wait for 30 mins for our order food item

The more expensive rooms with a view of the Ganges are good, although there is ample space on dining balconies to take in the stunning location. Arrange to be met at the station and you will be escorted to the hotel by one of their staff after being dropped off by the auto. The reception staff were helpful, although we... More

It has been an excellent experience to be at Hotel Alka. Hotel is at the bank of the river Ganga. One can sit and enjoy the view from the hotel balcony. On the day of arrival, we were picked at the railway station by the hotel staff. Varanasi lanes are very narrow so Autorikshaw is the best way to travel.... More

Visited in Aug 2014 with wife & son. The first floor room facing the river is extremely good.Located right on the Ganges and close to the Temple. Enjoy the boat rides easily. The food is vegetarian but good. The staff is generally friendly and typically if you are good to them they are also good to you. The hotel is... More

Though they promised for pick up facility nobody attended to us at railway station inspite of repeated phone calls. Since city was new to us, we have faced lots of problem... More

The hotel ALKA is on prime spot for watching the activities on the river. The staff are welcoming and helpful. They provided us with all we needed. I would recommend ALKA to anyone wanting to stay in old Varanasi.

Great location and friendly staff. If you want to get everything in one place, come and stay here. Nagyszerű elhelyezkedés és barátságos személyzet. Itt megkapsz mindent egy helyen, és pont a legizgalmasabb helyen töltheted az éjszakát. Megéri az árát.
