It was one hot night when I arrived in Varanasi from Delhi. Traveling solo, I definitely made the right decision to book with Monu's guest house as they offered transportation to and from the airport. After getting dropped off outside the alleways where the guest house was situated, Monu had organised for someone to meet me to direct me and... More

I stayed in Monu Guesthouse in Varanasi and I cannot say enough nice things about Monu, his home and his lovely family. Monu was so helpful to us - he helped us book trains and answered any questions we had about Varanasi, tours etc. We genuinely felt so welcome in his home. The rooms were bright and very colourful which... More

very friendly family who run it. Difficult to find tho! Conveniently located near Ganges river and good restaurants tho. Will arrange boat tours for u too. Personally don't think u need to spend too much time in Varanasi but as a hotel is pretty good.

Bright and cheery atmosphere, great management. We loved our stay here. It is a bit hard to find, so we recommend using their pick up service if possible. At the very least, have it pinpointed on a map and saved on your phone. The room was clean and the hot water was much enjoyed!

We loved this guest house. It is a very well looked after home, clean and cared for. Monu is a lovely host - very welcoming and extremely helpful. He was always there when we wanted to ask something, even at 4.30am in the morning - amazing! Nothing was too much trouble. But - importantly - he was also sensitive to... More

This is the second time Ihave stayed here, so it was good to see how the family have been after a gap of five years. Rooms are comfortable (and colourful), the facilities are OK (best for solo or younger travellers). The location is excellent, very near the main ghat, by the Golden Temple in the heart of the city..

Ideal place to stay in Varanasi. Rooms are comfortable and, most importantly, are located in the heart of town, just around the corner from the Golden Temple. Monu in particular was a perfect host, always generous with suggestions as to what to do and where to eat. Cannot recommend highly enough.

I really enjoyed staying at this Guesthouse in the old section of Varanasi. Manu is a great guy and his family are excellent hosts as well. He was very helpful in organizing my transportation. Great price. Great place. Thanks Manu!
