My friends and I stayed for a few days in November. We were welcomed late at night by the manager and staff who helped us with our luggage and settled us in our rooms. We were all impressed with our rooms, some of which looked over the river. The rooms are all comfortable and nicely designed, the hot water showers... More

This hotel is off the main stretch in Varanasi. It's next to the Ganges but very far down river. It means you are away from the crazy busy city. Although it takes half an hour from train station I thought it was worth it. It was peaceful, quiet and family run. Reception were helpful and gave us the best boat... More

I had the chance to stay here during off-season. They gave me a very good rate. The room was nice, very nice for Indian standard. Service was friendly. It just takessome time for delivery. In offseason they dont seem to have all ingredients in the kitchen. That is alright

We were not overly impressed with our stay at Rahul's Guest House nor greatly disappointed either. The room was a bit grungy with an AC that didn't work and a few too many spiders. However, the facilities were generally clean, we slept well enough even during Holi, and the rooftop restaurant food was good, the staff were very gracious, and... More

A place you would instantly feel at home...small ...well managed....basic..clean...tasteful... whatever minimum decor done does not clash with your aesthetic senses...dishes offered are basic but tasty and almost like home cooked food....but the real high points are its location, which is bang on the Ganges with the terrace cafe giving a clear view of the river and the crescent river...

The best thing of this hotel is the restaurant! The chef Joy and the waiter manage the restaurant as 5 star! They are the best!!! The room is overrated comparate with cleaness and facilities. The roof top is not available on the evening cause of many insects. The sink doesn't flush but nobody come to fix it.

Location is fantastic and the family owners and kitchen staff are very courteous and attentive to your needs. Rooms and the bathroom needs updating and could do with new and modern furniture. Food was ok, nothing much to comment. Hope to see some updating and improvements to attract foreign tourists.

We really enjoyed our stay at Rahul Guest House. The facilities were generally good (though the rooms are a little small) and the rooftop restaurant with its view over the Ganges was a real bonus. Staff were friendly and helpful. It's not too far to walk to Assi Ghat, or else staff can arrange an auto-rickshaw.
