One has a choice to make when staying in Varanasi. The most interesting part of the city is a warren of narrow streets and lanes where only a motorcycle can pass and the structures are old. The Ganges View was a very pleasant surprise. First, there is a parking lot a short block away and hotel staff will come to... More

This small hotel is situated right beside the river and over looking the ghats, so you feel right in the heart of Varanasi. This does have the drawback of a certain amount of noise but we much preferred being there to in some modern soundproofed box. The decor is traditional, with dark wood furniture and mogul style paintings. The staff... More

If the friendly staff, excellent location, and delicious food don't impress, the antique furniture, original artwork, and interesting layout make this one-of-a-kind hotel a must see. The hotel, a large renovated family home, maintains it's homey atmosphere while allowing you to experience Indian local life, customs, and traditions. Ceremonies at the nearby Asi Ghat begin at sunrise, followed by yoga... More

This was our 5th time at Hotel Ganges View. The whole house is decorated with fine arts, artifacts and traditional paintings. Each room is decorated individually and the shower is nice and warm. Their Indian buffet serves incredible rich food. The owner Shashank ji runs this place for 26 years now and staying there feels like home, like being part... More

This is a lovely family run boutique hotel in a great location. Rooms were good quality, the whole hotel was very clean and the service was pleasant. We ate lunch and dinner here (all vegetarian) and it was good food in a great setting at very reasonable prices. The location is at one end of the ghats which makes it... More

This hotel was a highlight of my recent trip to India Varanasi is growing increasingly congested and polluted and you owe it to yourself to have a beautiful comfortable retreat to come back to. The location at Assi Ghat is also really great (the only downside being the nice from the nearby temple but that’s sorted with some decent earlplugs)... More

We stayed in Varanasi for three nights and LOVE the Hotel Ganges View. The hotel is actually a Haveli where people lived once. It is located right on the river, at Assi Ghat, so you can walk the whole riverfront between the two rivers. The staff was very nice and accommodating. The food was delicious. And we met so many...
