Location: The location is good if you are specifically visiting Varanasi for sankat mochan temple, which was the main purpose of our visit too. A better route is via the boat ride however, due to time constraints and overflowing river (as a result of heavy rains), we had to take the road. Varanasi doesn't have wide roads and the traffic...

We arrived and were welcomed innthe most friendly manner. The hotel is not 5star flash, but is comfortable and friendly and has a true Varanasi feel. Overlooking the great Ganges and a two minute walk to the water, via cobbled lanes and local friendly people, we had a wonderful experience over four days. The food in this Haveli is very... More

The staff goes over and beyond to be helpful. The food was delicious. We enjoyed sitting on the rooftop terrace gazing out at the Ganges. The location is great because you are right on the river but near the end of the ghats. However, it is easy to walk along the river, and the boat rides are awesome. The rooms... More

Right on the river, staff is beyond friendly, boat rides included, great restaurant, best mango lassi I've ever had. A quiet oasis away from the hustle and bustle of town. They'll pick you up at airport for an additional charge. Rates are pricey but if you've got the cash, there's no better place to stay in Varanasi.

We arrived in Varanasi by boat, after a few days on the river. The historic Haveli is right on the Ganges, with a subdued version of riverside life and ceremonies all-around. (Down near the central Ghats, it can get a little loud/crowded). After a few days of camping, the shower and the clean room were highly valued. While we were... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Suryauday Haveli on Shivala Ghats is a reflection of the spirit of the holy city of Benaras. The Haveli traces its history back to the early 20th century. It was built by the Royal Family of Nepal as a retreat for the aged. Its now been painstakingly put together again to provide the best ghat experience in Benaras. Your stay begins with a 15 minute boat ride upstream along the famous ghats of Benaras to reach the Haveli. The Haveli is also connected by small alleys and streets leading to the Famous Kashi Vishwanath Temple (15 minutes walk). ... more   less
