We have recently stayed here for two nights as a large group in three rooms. So had an opportunity to see all the different choices of rooms on the top floor, large, medium with River view and small without river view. They were all decent, but none was extraordinary. The view is great, but the room without view was not...

You need to go by foot to get to hotel, we were met by porters which was helpful. At the moment there is no working restaurant but they are opening in a...

The journey to get to this hotel was an interesting introduction to Varanasi. Walking through the side streets, avoiding cowpat and ignoring hawkers! The rooms were lovely and the beds were so good!

Wow, what a view 180 degree views of the Ganges and life in Varanasi. The accommodation is great, remember this is a guest house and not a hotel. Staff are super helpful.

While booking in Varanasi first you have to decide whether you would like to stay near the Ghat or in the city. If you don't want to miss the flaver of the old city you must stay near the Ghat. And this hotel is perfectly placed. The resturent is good too. Two negative I should mention.. 1. Number of steps...

In my opinion this is one of the best locations in Varanasi. I always chose to stay in the most expensive room category because it has the best view of the Ganges. If you want a fab view with a fab location then you should stay here. However, you are paying a lot more for that view and you are...
