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.

We really liked the Rahul guest house, the location was very good for us as we like to be away from all the hustle and bustle but near enough to be able to walk to all the local attractions. The guest house is off the Main Street and has got good views over the river from the roof top balcony,... More

We really enjoy our staying in Rahul Guest House. The guest house is situated very close to the center of Varanasi, so you can walk to there. The food was good and the room was nice, clean and quite. The bathroom was clean but a bit small. They arrange also boat trip and city tour but we didn't join it.

This place has almost everything you want it to. The rooms are surprisingly modern, with a comfortable beds and good service to the room. The view is incredible, though. You can stare out at the Ganges while eating any meal, and the food is very good as well. It is also far away from all the city chaos, and is... More
