With lot of options to choose from the Oldest City to stay! and also keeping in mind for the safety with covid guidelines finalised The Taj ganges at the destination for a short detour for the weekend.The location was little far from the ghats but in the heart of the city. The management has put in their full effort to adhere to the safety guidelines from the entry to the hotel and everything else. The minute efforts put should be appreciated with access to sanitizers in places frequently touched. The team from the reception also made the check in process quick.The rooms felt slightly smaller compared to other places at this rate. But the rooms were beautiful,shiny and filled with good vibes. The breakfast at the Chowk wasn't as expected with very limited options, Food of Varuna was very good and we enjoyed it. Special thanks for the staff from The Varuna and housekeeping to make our stay good!

True to its legacy of impeccable hospitality that Taj group has created over the years Taj Ganges is another gem in its crown. I always felt at home whenever I have stayed at Taj properties and the same is only possible when the staff treats you as a family. Even during these challenging times of covid one feel absolutely safe as the hotel is maintaining very strict covid protocols. Everything from smooth check in to room service, housekeeping and restaurant staff is top notch. Special thanks to Mr Vikas, Mr Binod, Mr Rashid for their exceptional hospitality. Taj Ganges is a beautiful heritage property especially the lawns and outdoor areas. Thank you for the wonderful stay!! Keep up the Good work and Spirit of TAJness Alive.

Had an amazing stay at Taj Ganges, Varanasi. Was greeted and picked up at airport by the chauffeur Mr.Neeraj. He was our chauffeur for 2 days and took utmost care of us everywhere. His hospitality was exceptional and he was brilliant with navigating across the city and has immense knowledge of the city. Would love to give special thanks for guiding us and helping us everywhere. My parents were very glad to have him as our chauffeur. Also greatly pleased by Mr.Shashank for managing our travel itinerary in the city at the time of our stay at Taj Ganges. Had been very helpful and courteous. Would love to mention Mr.Angad for managing our luggage every time carefully. Rest of the staff at the hotel were very courteous, friendly and very helpful. Had an amazing stay at the hotel. The only thing which I would think needs to improve is the service at the restaurant Chowk. the service was exceptional as with any Taj. just that it was too slow. May be due to covid situation and its totally understandable. Otherwise exceptional food. loved to visit again. My regards to the whole team at Taj Ganges for being amazing hosts. Especially Mr.Neeraj was an amazing person and deserves a 5 star rating for his service. Would love to come back soon.

Good location, courteous and cooperative staff. Rooms are clean and in hygiene condition. Face Mask is worn by all hotel staff except for few visitors/guests who think they are immune to Covid 19. Chowk, the restaurant is elegantly laid out with wide variety of menu. Huge garden in front and ample parking space. Spa, pool, gym are closed to avoid spread of Covid 19. Overall experience was great.
