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

What a place, this former Nepali Khothi is just amazing, garden, pools, food....all. Our two night stay at the Sweet will be a life time memorable moment. The best is for sure the Hotel Staff, they are all dedicated to the guests, here we found the genuine meaning of services. Dinner at Canton Royale Restaurant, located at the heritage kothi,... More

The room facilities of this hotel are more one rather than three stars. My five day stay at the hotel was inundated with problems from check-in. I was given a room then was told i had to move the following day to another room because the workman needed to do some upgrading work. I was put into a room with... More

We got 2 rooms on the first floor of this hotel... cannot recall the room numbers precisely but 104/114 and 105 / 115. The photographs on the hotel website are not telling of the badly maintained condition of the rooms. The wood was chipped in places, the walls were paled out, the paint had chipped of the verandah railing, the... More

I landed in Surya hotel via reviews and photographs through Trip Adviser. Though there were comparable hotels, but I chose this property due to its nice gardens and heritage look. I was pleased with my selection when I reached the hotel. Though the room-size was just ok, but it was clean and descent. But I feel some refurbishing is needed... More

We stayed here for 5 days. Very helpful staff and rooms were clean but a bit small. Room coolers were not working properly. breakfast provided by them was good and also restaurant served delicious food. Highly recommend if you can compromise with a bit smaller rooms. no wifi
