“Great value for money!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2013

Remarkable hotel.....please don't get fooled by its cramped exterior; the rooms are marvellously spacious and well appointed. Great service, great food and best of all, the location, which is right next to Har ki Pauri. The corridor in front of the rooms offers a wonderful view of the river. The staff is courteous and helpful; overall we had a great 2 night stay at Ganga Lahari. Definitely recommended.

Its an must must stay at Ganga Lahiri Hotel, if u wanna stay in Haridwar. I must say wat a view and the peaceful , soulful feeling get by watching over Ganga River. The view is excellent. Rooms are so clean and hygienic. I had tasted breakfast, it was tasty. Attending the Harr ki Pouri ki Aaarti which is hardly five mins from this hotel. Pls dont miss this Aarti,its amazing. U will feel really God exists. Must a worth staying at this place.

Room Tip: All rooms are facing Ganga River

I would recommend Ganga Lahari to everyone visiting Haridwar. Great place to stay and excellent location right at Har ki Paudi. Friendly and courteous staffs. The room was nice and bathroom was clean. One of their staffs accompanied us to the place where Ganga Aarti happens and ensured we get a good view of the same.
The food was also very good. You can get a very good view of the river Ganga from the hotel corridor. All of us had a great time and specially my mother liked the hotel a lot. Next time whenever we go to Haridwar, we know where to stay. Overall a very pleasurable experience.

As a westerner, part CouchSurfing and backpacking in India, I needed a staying in a very comfortable PLACE like this for a while.
The most remarkable thing of the hotel is the LOCATION, in the centre of the interesting area. The VIEW from the common veranda on the gat is amazing: you can sit hours drinking tea and watching indian life going on like in a movie.
The STAFF was helpful and always available (they gave us a welcome present when we arrive, they repaired not working tv in the room, they kindly let us use the internet and make local phone call, and at the end of our staying they took us to catch a rickshaw to our next destination). If you want, they can take you at the evening aarti.
The ROOMS are clean and comfortable, with all facilities. The only lack is that our room was a bit dark with no windows, but it was situated facing the verandah. There’s laundry service.
The FOOD was delicious and of good quality. Plus, at dinner, there were musician and singer to make the atmosphere perfect .

Room Tip: if you want a room with windows make sure it's available

We stayed in this hotel for one night. Had chosen this hotel after a lot of research and very happy to report that it did not disappoint us. It's bang on the banks of Ganges. Very clean and spacious rooms. Stayed in the Maharaja suite. The bathroom was very nice too. The staff of the hotel was very polite and very efficient. One of the staff accompanied us to the Ganga Aarti and made sure we had a great view of the Aarti. We did not have dinner but had breakfast which was good. The view of the Ganges from the corridor is charming. Will definitely recommend this hotel.

I stayed 2 nights at the Ganga Lahari. The rooms are great, the hotel quiet and the location is perfect. It is on the banks of the Ganges, only a few mins walk from the ghats where the Ganga Aarti (river worship ceremony) takes place.
