The Gateway Hotel Taj at Varanasi is located centrally and in comparatively cleaner environs of Varanasi city. The Hotel is just about 1.5 km from the Varanasi cantonment Railway Station, about 2.5 kms from the city bus stand and about 22kms from the Varanasi Airport. Though the hotel belongs to the Taj Group of hotels the decor and rooms cannot be compared to Taj Mumbai as far as elegance goes. Nevertheless it is one of the best hotels in the tariff range. The rooms are old but are well maintained and kept clean. The hotel is constructed in a 'swastik' shape, which is an ancient hindu symbol of good health. The hotel is housed in a sprawling garden and has good space all around which is a bonus in a place like Varanasi, which is very crowded and a city of narrow alleys. The hotel has a swimming pool, gymnasium,spa, coffee shop, a good sitting lounge, a restaurant and a shopping outlet which sells local artifacts, silk sarees (Varanasi is famous for silk sarees) and carpets. The restaurant is very good which offers awesome breakfast and buffet with wide variety of food to suit the taste of tourists worldover. The staff is courteous and responsive. Adjacent to the hotel there is Taj Ganges which is palatial and has very good premium suites which are on a higher tariff. Taj Ganges is also located on a huge area of open space and is very comfortable for staying, while visiting the holy hindu city of Varanasi.
