I was there only in restaurant. The view from the roof is great - you can see almost all old part of the city. It's very beautiful an peacefully in the evening. The meal was good. Service was good. And it's not expensive. Momos is quite good but the beer is expensive but it's typical for Varanasi.

The room was quite clean, except for the termits in the bathroom door... The hall of the hotel is not very welcoming. The restaurant staff is very friendly. The food is not exceptionnal... The terrace view is nice. The location is perfect if you want to dive in the atmosphere of the old city.

Puja guest house is well situated. The rooms are not clean (we found a dead rat in the bathroom , I know we are in India. ...) and the owner is unpleasant though his employees are doing their best . O.G.

Guest house is noisy, rooms are almost clean (no more), free wifi but not working (the famous "not working today" 3 days in a row... Though, rooms are cheap. I guess if your goal is to save money, it's not so bad (well located, restaurant with excellent view and ok food).

We arrived late at night at Varanasi due to a train delay and unfortunately we ended up at this place. Grossly overpriced when it was clear it was our only option at the time. The rooms were dirty, there wasn't wifi as promised, and no hot water at all. The staff was rude and not helpful at all, do your... More

The rooftop view overlooking the lake and the city is one of the better in Varanasi. The restaurant is alright with good live music in the evening. However, the rooms are extremely basic and unclean, reception staff come across as rude and very unhelpful. Cheap enough, but still overpriced for what you get

The place needs work. The rooms I was shown were over priced and horrible. I found a much nicer and cheaper guest house around the corner, Sankatha. The place could be good with effort but it's dull and depressing. I am unsure how it made it into the lonely planet

Actually I chose this hotel only for the view. It was one of the worst I´ve stayed during my trip around India. Rooms are unclean, walls dirty, the towers must be at least 5 years of using. Front desk dark and staff not prepared to give the guest the minimal information about the complicated streets of Varanasi. On the first... More

I wouldn't recommend it at all. I had to change my room because a window was broken and mosquitoes were all over the room (you must think there a lot because is close to Ganges), the staff is a bit rude sometimes and they insist in taking you to the gifts stores that the hotel owner has. And, most important,... More

A great budget guest house with Wifi, on the banks of the Ganges, in the heart of bustling Varanasi with amazing views & incredibly friendly, helpful staff. Can't thank Prakash (manager) and Manoj enough for going the extra mile to make sure our stay was an excellent one.
