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

Hotel Surya is a great place to visit Varanasi if you don't want the constant huddle and bustle of the centre. It's easy to get to and from the centre and rail station. The hotel is immaculately clean with decent size rooms and a great pool. The breakfast was good and the restaurant and bars were ok although a little... More
