This hotel has a lot of things going for it; it has a great location very close to the main ghat, but is off the main drag in a small alley which means that, whilst central, it's still pretty quiet. The rooms are well kept and clean, with marble floors and brightly painted walls. The bathrooms are fine and the...

First of all the positives: Rudra is in a good location near the ghats, especially Dashwamedh ghat. The hotel has large, clean rooms. There is wifi downstairs in the reception area but not in the bedrooms. Now the downside. The manager/owner Lalu initially appeared very welcoming, emailing me a day before my booking stating that he would send someone to...

This is a new Guesthouse and is nice and clean. The furnishing is very Spartan, but you don't really expect more from a guesthouse. The location is very good, right near the main ghat. The staff are friendly and helpful.

Very nice place that worth it's price. Clean colorful rooms and hot(!) water. Position is close the main ghat, so it's very convenient. Discounts are also possible, so don't hesitate to stay here. On top of this they give 25% of their profit to help homeless children, so it' s one more reason of staying here.

This is a very nice little hotel. It is a little hidden in a side corner, but that makes it also very quite and nevertheless it is very close to the main gath. The rooms were simple but clean. The bathroom was also very clean in "Western Style" and with a shower with warm water (if asked for it a...

I spent several nights in Varanasi at a couple different guest houses. My time at Rudra was wonderful! The staff was very friendly and the rooms were clean with hot water and wifi in the common room. Although a little bit off the main road, this means it is quiet at night and it is still centrally located, near the...

If you're looking for a place that's close to the main Ghats but away from the hussle and bussle of the main streets and also for a reasonable price then look no further. I stayed 5 days in a double on suite bedroom for 500rs which was our budget. The room was very clean with fresh sheets and hot and...

I stayed at 3 guest houses in my 8 days in Varanasi and this last one, Rudra was the best. The location is perfect, close to main Ghat, but quiet enough to even have a lovely nap in the day time! The other places I stayed involved long walks through dark allies, (being a solo female traveler, this is not...

“Definitely ask for an AC room and, if possible, to stay upstairs with the family. You'll be greeted with a cup of chai made by Ati, and have anything you need.”
