Excellent location, Lush green ambiance, Fascinating place, Perfect morning breakfast Humble staff made our three days stay full of comfort and gave fullest value of the money paid. Food served in room was on a higher side this can be diffused by offering loyalty cards. We will be staying again.

I stayed at the Surya for a 4 night break from my work in Varanasi. The hotel itself was once a palace built for the King of Nepal in 1818 so it is a beautifully historic building in parts. There is a health spa on site which I used and also a couple of very good quality shops selling clothing,... More

We reached on the day of Mahashivratri. The ambience of the hotel was good. It was earlier residence of a royal family which is now converted into hotel. The Service standards vis-a-vis the tariff were very poor. The food is excellent.

Unfortunately, the stay in Hotel Surya has been one of the worst in my life. The hotel facilities or the location or the service are not that bad. However, the massive amount of theft that we endured made it the worst. We were a team of 26 members staying in the hotel for attending a marriage party. Since it was... More

Dear Guest, We are very sorry that your goods were stollen. As we explained to you while you were at the hotel, it is not possible that your items were taken in our hotel, but much more likely that they were stollen on your train journey. As you did not check your bags on, during or after your train, but... More

After travelling the Golden Triangle on a modest budget with friends, we spent a few days here at Hotel Surya for a bit of a splurge (still CRAZY inexpensive, considering!). The rooms are very large and well equipped - ours had a balcony, which was nice. They aren't super modern or lush, but still very good for the price. The... More
