This hotel was a palace built in 1835 which was converted to a hotel not too long ago. Prior to that it was used by Kings to host visiting Royals. There are only ten guest rooms each of which is unique and its clearly the nicest hotel in Varanasi. The palace has large well groomed grounds including five golf holes...

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...

We visited six fabulous hotels on our trip and this was my favorite. It felt like the real life home of a maharajah and it was! The property has nine suites and the staff offers the most personal services. Our arrival was heralded with a ceremony of conch blowing and bells. Our suite was lavish and the bath completely modernized....

This is a palace hotel complete with iconic guest rooms with period furniture and memorabilia. There is even a horse drawn buggy ride for the residents. The Satvik Thali inspired by the temples of Varanasi was awesome. The staff went out of their way to make our stay comfortable. One of the staff even called a shopkeeper to bring in...

had a reservation at the Taj and they were oversold so probably got the worst room which was delightful! Big room, older hotel, (obviously since it was a palace) clean, great service. Food and beverage just steps from our room any hour of the day or night. What more could you ask for. Oh yes and a very nice pool...

Our tour company originally put us at the next-door Taj Gateway, and we insisted on upgrading to the Nadesar Palace. We are so happy we did! we were on a very busy four-week tour of India and we did not want to stay in subpar hotels. The Nadesar Palace is quiet, intimate, a total island of calm in a very...

The Nadesar Palace is magnificent. It is the beautifully restored guest house of a maharajah. We loved the horse and carriage ride around the property and the stop at the garden to pick vegetables for our lunch which the chef expertly prepared. We would go back for the fabulous meals alone.

Without going into boring details of a poor stay - Nice enough building and situation but very poor service - nowhere near 5 star. Ludicrously expensive for what it is. Taj seem to have lost the know how if running 5 star hotels or heritage retreats. E.g A simple guest house for 100th the cost can organise Breakfast for 2...
