Room was ok, quite clean and as expected. All the facilities were as advertised. The walking tour is a great idea, and the guide Ajay was really nice. He took us on the boat tours (1000 rupees for a private sunrise and sunset tour). That was fantastic and a great viewing point away from the madness. He also took us... More

We stayed at Hotel Ganesha for 5 nights during the annual Dhrupad Mela (classical music festival). The location is convenient (5 min. to 10 min. walk to Tulsi and Assi ghats). It's also reasonably quiet since it's not right on a main road. The rooms are basic but clean and the showers have hot water 24 hrs. We stayed in... More

I can not tell you, that it is a luxury hotel. You will hear a noise in morning the from all the sides, but indian people make noise everywhere. The hotel is situated near the first of historical ghats. The hotel stuff is very polite and friendly. They realy care about the guests.

I enjoyed my stay at Hotel Ganesha. Immediately upon check-in, the staff welcomed us warmly and offered the services of the tour guide (complimentary!). The room is fairly standard, though there not much room to walk around after we set up the extra bed. The area is quite nice, a short walk to Assi Ghat (Ganges), but a bit crowded... More
