It is the pool-place which makes this hotel. So nice to relax with some drinks after handling the galis in the old town! Rooms are old fashioned, but clean. Service as one should expect. Food in restaurant is also quite nice.

Relatively quiet spot and a good place to unwind after exploring the town, or watching the ceremonies on the river. Lovely swimming pool with a bar and plenty of sun beds. Good quality shops to browse and a... More

An overnight stay at Varanasi, good place, silent, not on the main road. Sensitive staff, caring. Clean, Only problem I felt was....a lot of pigeon droppings in the balcony of the room. good car parking. About 40 cars can be parked with good security.

Thank you for taking the time to review us. It is true that our Premium category rooms are much larger than the Deluxe category. Both are a great deal now, as we are running 20% off all bookings in April. We hope you will stay with us again. More

Inspite of some discouraging reviews I choose this hotel and stayed for 5 days. Perhaps the hotel was thoroughly renewed by the time I visited. The hotel was very decent and immaculately clean. The restarent was wonderful and staff were courteous. I recommend this hotel without hesitation.

I stayed here as part of a Geckos Tour and was very impressed. The building itself is beautiful and the rooms were spacious and clean. We also had a balcony which was great. There is beautiful grass areas and a really good bar. I would recommend this hotel in Varanasi.
