We arrived in Varanasi and the hotels we wanted were full (Ganpati and Alka). We saw lots of rooms for 500-1500 rupee and they were all terrible!!!!!!!!! We ended up in this place and there was a room for 2500 for only one night and they were kind enough to let us have it for 2000. The room was clean,... More

Hotel Ganges View is just steps away from Assi Ghat and a great place to relax in between boat rides and sightseeing. The terrace and plentiful common areas were comfortable, and the rooms were nicely decorated and air conditioned, though on the smaller side. We found the bed to be rather hard and a little short for my husband, who... More

Right on the ghats and at one end making it ideal for a stroll up and around Varanasi. Rooms were really well done out and the terrace was a marvellous place to sit and watch proceedings below away from the hustle and bustle. Staff were friendly and helped us arrange taxis etc as required. We travelled with our 8 year... More

The location of the Hotel Ganges View can't be beat. For us, the main reason to be in Varanasi is to experience the river and the rhythm of life and death that accompanies it. It was so convenient to amble down the steps and to Assi Ghat to arrange a boat trip at dawn, and upon returning be back on... More

The hotel is located right on Assi Ghat which is a very busy part of the river with lots of activity especially in the evening. To get to the main part of town however is a long 40 minute walk along the river, which is interesting, but a little tiring in the heat of Varanasi. The hotel was very clean... More

We were most enchanted by this little hotel when we first got to Varanasi and especially by the locations and the views. It is small, personal and has a lovely terrace to sit on for breakfast or meals if you can stand the heat. The staff was quite friendly and the food was good, if you like vegetarian food and...

This place is adequate. The building is very pleasant with lots of outdoor common seating areas and nice decor. We had a room at the top with a Ganges view. Room was extremely tiny with very little space to walk around. Shower temperature was finicky, pressure just ok. Bathroom clean. Room service was good for breakfast, they did not offer... More
