Originally an old colonial East India House taken over by a Maharaja, now run by Taj, graciously renovated with huge rooms each named after someone who stayed there. We were in the Queen Elizabeth suite, with Mountbatten next door. Housekeeping in the rooms was excellent and done to a really high quality, as was the carriage driver who’s job had... More

This truly gives the feel of a palace. Beautiful big, airy rooms, lovely furnishings, stunning lounge areas, extensive grounds. Very good menu and attentive staff. The Taj Gateway is in the same grounds so you can eat in their first class Indian restaurant if you have time. All told, a lovely experience.

Welcome by chants of priests and divine ‘sankh’ melody filled us with passion and excitement. It was honoring welcome by Taj Nadesar Palace. We stayed in ‘Lord Mountbatten’ suite. Lush green gardens, trees and grasses filled joy and happiness in us. No words to explain beauty of Taj Nadaser Palace, it is best place to stay in Holy Varanasi. Our... More

Varanasi was our last stop on a very busy two week tour of Northern India and we could not have chosen a more perfect property to end the trip. Beautiful, serene, intimate, a total oasis of calm in a very chaotic city. Service was outstanding and food was excellent. Highly recommend this hotel. We stayed in the Queen Elizabeth Suite,...

The Palace hotel is the ONLY 5 star hotel in Varanasi. The service and the rooms are great. It is really a shelter from the crowds in the ganges and the crazy caos of the street . If you want a 5 star hotel , this is it.
