“Beautifull hotel but far from main ghat.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 20, 2013

We definitely appreciated the charm of the Welcome Inn at Ganges. It is beautifully conceived and executed - in some ways an oasis in the mayhem that is Varanasi. Our rooms were lovely and well-appointed. Beds were comfortable. Staff were helpful and spoke good english. Still, we couldn't help but feel that staying here we were far away from centre of the city. The main ghats were a rickshaw ride, Boat ride or a long walk away. Deluxe room is made like suite and you can enjoy watching english movies in seating area where there is sofa and table with nice decoration. That said, most Westerners would probably feel very comfortable staying here.

Thank you ma'm for such a lovely feedback. As Varanasi is small, oldest living city and cultural capital of india, So I hope you had enjoyed walk tour and boat trip from welcome inn. We have some very good memories from your stay here. We are looking for your next trip to become your host again..

This was my second visit to Varanasi. Last time I came here alone 15 years back but this time I was accompanying my family. Varanasi has changed lot since my last visit. I decided to stay near ganges in peacefull place to relax. Welcome Inn was ideal property for me. Owner had helped me lot with my other trip bookings as he is travel professional. We got very good deluxe room and that was too upgraded without any extra charges. Room and washroom are very clean and furnished.

Room Tip: I used Deluxe room it was superb

during my world tour i was traveling to Varanasi and i stayed at Welcome Inn. As name suggest they realy welcome you very nicely. This is very new accomodation, very neat and clean. Their land finishing are like any 5 star hotel. They are slowly decorating their rooms and interiors & they also asked me for suggestion which is realy nice.
This hotel is located next to gangs river and you can have nice view from balcony and roof top. There is one bridge at ganges nearby this hotel. We went in evening to stand on bridge and see around - we liked this too much. An excellent property to relax near ganges. They also arrange private yoga trainer for us.
