You can step out of the hotel and after 15 steps, you will be in Ganges. We stayed there on a sunday, just before the last monday of Shravan month. From the station we have to come by taxi, then rickshaw and then by walk for 500mtrs to reach the hotel. You will have to walk through the narrow lanes... More

I chose this hotel because of the rooftop views (as I had seen before in the hotel pictures) but top floor restaurant was closed as they were doing some works. Standard room was the worst I have been in India, not clean at all, very very small, and bad bathroom. They woke me Up early in the morning to ask... More

We booked this hotel for the location and rooftop. The situation it's very good but the restaurant and rooftop was closed and nobody told us. They woke us up with a telephone call at 8:30 just to ask if we would like breaksfast, which we have to eat inside the room. The taxi service to the airport was really bad... More

We arrived in the evening after being dropped off by the taxi in the middle of the most chaotic place on earth, Varanasi. The checkin process was smooth and staff welcoming and attentive. Lobby area clean and large. The room was clean (which in itself is the most important thing in such a city as Varanasi), but was quite small... More

Being a Guest House we weren't sure what to expect especially as the car had to pull up quite a way down the street. What a treat though right down to the walk from the car to the place we would spend the next couple of nights. The street was full of activity and the side street we turned into... More

Varanasi aka Banaras aka Kashi gave me the best experience of holiness and devotion. Cherry on the cake was the hotel in which I and my grandmother decided to stay. Perfect location, amazing view (though we did not take the room with Ganga view, we could see the holy river from the corridors and the roof top restaurant) To experience... More

Stayed at the Rashmi Guesthouse for four days in May. Booked a deluxe Ganges River view double room with A/C. The desk manager was initially friendly and welcoming. They give you a flower garland greeting and a glass of cold juice which was nice. There is no elevator in this building so be warned, there are lots of stairs to... More
