We welcome you to a quiet, comfortable, homely atmosphere, and hope you enjoy your stay with us. This budget accommodation in Varanasi offers fine facilities. 21 rooms all with attached bath, some with air condition. We are at the main heart of the city, absolute bank of the River Ganges, so any place and every spot is easily reachable. 'MANIKARNIKA GHAT' is famous for Burning Ghat, where Hindus burn body after death. At last but not least our services are exclusively traditional. We believe our guest as God in disguise. Situated in the heart of the ancient Varanasi close to the Golden Temple and Burning Ghat. Walking distance from Main Ghat and Main Market. 30 minutes from railway station/bus stop, airline offices, 1 hour from Varanasi Airport. If you desire to spend less for a comfortable stay, still live in privacy, style, luxury and elegance, with very simple but very comfortable and immaculately clean rooms, with/without attached baths/showers, running hot and cold water, western style toilets then this is it!! We have a little sitting arrangement for our guests where they come sit, share their stories, plan for the next day, drink and dine and have a whole lot of fun together.

We stayed for 2 nights while being in Varanasi. It is few steps from the main Manikarnika ghat. We could hear singing from the window when people carried the bodies to be cremated, so it was very strong for us. Rooms were very clean and comfortable, we also enjoyed chatting with

"Try to talk directly with the manager as the online bookers do not reflect the current prices."
"There are two Internet channels - one is on the ground floor, the other is on the restaraunt floor."
"Having a window is absolutely worth it."
"2nd floor quieter"
"The surroundiings surely are noisy due to the unique location on the Manikarnika Ghat."
