I was sorry I only spent 2 nights here before moving to a worse, more expensive hotel down by the ghats. Service is excellent, pool is fantastic, food is good and gardens are nice. I paid 2,000 rupees per night which included taxes and breakfast. Awesome!!! Take a tuktuk into the old town by the river for 150 rupees. Really... More

The best thing about Surya is the HAVELI.. They purchased an ancient haveli and are using it for guests by restoring it. Although, it doesn't have rooms for guests, it is used for their restaurants. The first floor for 'Under the Sun' buffet breakfast and the Ground floor for 'After the Dark' dinner.. The hotel's ambience, cleanliness, courtesy of staff,... More

Hotel Surya has a good selection of amenities but unfortunately the quality of its rooms lets it down. My bed was comfortable and I slept easily. The bathroom was very simple; the shower worked but not very well and the toilet seat was almost falling off. The staff around the grounds were polite and friendly but the front desk staff... More

This hotel is set back off the busy streets of Varanasi, down a small access road with an entry to reception then a large set of gates which opens up into the hotel’s ground (inclusive of security guards). This makes it quiet and secure, and our stay was rather peaceful. The hotel has a substantial parking area with an adjacent... More

We attended two big functions at Surya (over 600 people in May and around 300 people in July). I was impressed how hotel handled such big crowd. The delicious food was served on time, the premises were kept clean, and even the toilets always had the toilet paper and paper towels. There are a few shops on the hotel territory,... More

The Surya is a very well priced Heritage hotel in Varanasi. The hotel setting and courtyard are really attractive, rooms are clean and spacious, breakfast was decent and the spa was very good. All the staff were also very helpful and pleasant. The only drawback is that it's some distance away from the ghats and the Ganges which are the... More

We stayed at Surya in December 2014, for 2 nights with family. Found it perfectly suitable for friends and family stays. Room was clean, specious and well maintained. Staff was pretty cooperative. Food arrangement was great as well. Bit far from banks of river Ganga, but surely worth a stay. Open garden and pool are like icing on the cake!... More
