This small boutique hotel is in a great location beside one of the ghats and so is very convenient for an afternoon ghat stroll. It has a central courtyard, with the rooms arranged around the outside of it, which doubles as an overflow dining area. The “superior” room which we had overlooks the ghat. The room was well furnished and...

This Haveli is in the most wonderful location on the Ganges. It overlooks a ghat and provides a fabulous vantage point for observing Indian lifestyle and religious rituals. The Haveli itself is very comfortable and the restaurant serves delicious vegetarian fare. The staff are very friendly and attentive. Our group spent a day relaxing on the roof terrace and enjoying...

Recently stayed at this very central haveli. What a charming place. To wake up a look out the window at the sun rising over the mighty river Ganges, just magical. We took a boat ride at sunset, past the ghats where people and animals were bathing, praying, being cremated and finally took part in Ganga Aarti. My Husband was ill...

We (a couple) stayed 4 nights and enjoyed every moment we were here. The service was superb -- attentive but not fawning. The food was a treat. The surroundings appropriate and part of the Varanasi vibe. No alcohol available (not a big deal); smoking not encouraged (though the arrival of a "new" manager after 2 days of our stay who...

Ive just returned from a second stay at this lovely little haveli. I love the location on a local ghat and the food is perfectly good.

This hotel is a joke. 2-3 stars at best, but definitely not four. I cannot understand how it gets any positive reviews. We made a mistake of reserving a room here by recommendation of our tour agent.

Old style haveli. Management were really good to us (especially given that our tour agent dumped us there at the crack of dawn). Real character hotel. Would recommend to anyone. Easy walk along the banks to see the sights. Easy to organise river trip at dawn

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
