The Hotel Surya was just what I needed. It was an oasis of comfort that I indulged in. From their excellent restaurant to the refreshing swimming pool, everything I needed to relax and unwind after a day of adventure at the ghats was provided for me.

Well, if you are looking for a basic (not even) hostel then this is your place to stay. The garden is beautiful and some of the staff are friendly but other than that... public and in room bathrooms are horrible, breakfast less than basic and rooms are in a horrible condition. I know there are renovated rooms but I booked... More

This is a nice place to stay, clean, friendly staff, nice food and good coffee. Shubham in the coffee shop is very nice and enjoys having a quick chat with the customers which adds to the nice atmosphere. The hotel is about 15mins tuk tuk ride from the hustle of Varanassi and The Gange.

The location of Hotel Surya is as convenient as you can get - it is close to the Varuna river, as well as the main shopping complexes of the city. The proximity of this property to the commercial area and the rail and bus stations is an added bonus. I booked my stay through Travelguru, who are the leaders in... More
