Great family and guesthouse in an excellent location. Room was good and rooftop had a great view. Suraj gives a great tour of old city and ghats. Burning ghat is only 2 minutes walk although tuk tuks won't be able to drop you off outside the guesthouse as the roads are too small

Hassles with Suraj guesthouse from the minute we stepped off the plane. We caught a taxi to the centre of Varanasi, where we met Guarev, the tour guide, who informed us that he forgot about the booking, but it didn't matter because he 'would've got the money from the booking site anyway'. Guarev might not have forgotten about the booking,... More

We deliberately looked for somewhere to stay that was a family run establishment where we could really get a feel for the environment and the culture around us. Suraj guest house (fittingly pronounced 'sewerage') was an absolute nightmare. The number listed on every website for them was incorrect and there was no email, so although the website listed a possible... More

My girlfriend felt sick and he helped again :)... More

Got a single ensuite room with good ceiling fan for almost the same price I was paying before in a 14 bed dorm, without ensuite, elsewhere. Was hoping for AC as I was suffering with food poisoning but the AC rooms were booked, but the fan was good enough. More importantly, they were SO kind to me, Prabu especially, because... More

First of all, the location of this place is perfect. It is close to everything. But the star of our stay here was definitely Prabu, the owner. He really cares about the well-being of his guests and will go above and beyond to ensure it. Even if we were off-season, he was able to arrange for a teacher to come... More
