Had an awesome stay here.....really huge spacious rooms...a mindblowing terrace.....all facilities were up to the mark....delicious healthy breakfast served.....all services were satisfactory.....location is too good, away from the congested parts of Varanasi....Riya Palace presents a homely peaceful atmosphere after a whole tiresome all-day tour.....

An Orwellian experience that rather reminded me of one of my favourite novel. The room was presidential with an extraordinarily well equipped wash room. Cooled my two ceiling fans and a very noisy A/C the room by temperature was very comfortable. Situated in the doctors quarter of town this elaborate home stay (no tax) is far from the madding crowd...

This is a large home in a nice area, quite a ways away from the Ganges. It is quiet and comfortable. The rooms are large, and air conditioned. We had a large balcony to ourselves where we could relax. We did have a cleanliness issue where we told the owner and he promptly had his helper clean the area. This...

This is a homestay. A bungalow that has been converted into a hotel. We were surprised to see that the size of the room and the bathroom was quite large. The service given was excellent. We enjoyed the complimentary continental breakfast given. Though we were supposed to vacate the room by 12 noon, we were allowed to stay till 4...

I stayed at this hotel (homestay) in October for two days with my old parents. We didn't book actually. But I had gone through Riya Palace over tripadvisor before the trip and once in Varanasi in the late afternoon and having found the hotel room that was booked looking not at all conducive, I had rather preferred at having my...

My dad and I stayed in this hotel in Varanasi for one night in August The hotel owner/manager was very helpful. A pick-up from the train station was well-organised, although not free. The owner also organised a day-taxi for us to see some sights around and in Varanasi, although the taxi driver could not speak English, which would have enhanced...

I stayed at Riya Palace for three nights and the hospitality I received during my stay was next to none. The staff went out of their way to help me and make my stay an enjoyable and comfortable one. The room was spacious and comfortable, and the food served at breakfast (and I also ate here at dinner!) comes highly...

We arrived to the Riya Palace with no reservation, but were quickly helped get a very nice room. It felt like a bed and breakfast and the staff was very attentive and helpful. They were able to mail our postcards, provide info on what prices we should pay for rickshaws and help us book a train ticket. They provided excellent...

Was very pleasantly surprised for my stay here. From first greeting to farewell it was one of my best hotel experiences in my 4 month trip! The owner was helpful to every need, even going to a shop for camera batteries. The attendants were wonderful and curteous and it felt like a friendly family experience. No need to eat elsewhere...
