What made our trip to Varanasi so unique was Vivek, the knowledgable guide at this guesthouse on the river Ganges.

Large room with fan and AC, bar fridge and free wifi, Both room and bathroom were spotlessly clean as is the whole place. We had a private balcony which was perfect to watch the world below pass by, from people taking part in ceremonies, daily bathing, boys with their kites and buffalo's taking a dip. Food delicious and always served... More

We stayed at Shiva Ganges View for 2 weeks and had an extremely comfortable and enjoyable stay. The location is perfect, right on the Ganges and in a good central location for exploring the ghats in either direction. The rooms were kept very clean and were cleaned regularly throughout our stay. The rooms are beautifully decorated and are very secure... More
