We chose the place as it was right on the Ghats, very close to Dasaswamedhghat and right next to Darbhanga Ghat. There is a roof top restaurant serving good food with a fabulous view of the Ganges. I wish it could be a bit more clean.

This was my second visit to this guest house. This time we got the heritage room for three nights. I really enjoyed my stay in this room. This room is suitable for two people but we were three and somehow we just managed with an extra matress. The view of Ganga from our room was fabulous. One needs to walk... More

The place is great as far as the view is concerned. The hotel staff are very polite and well mannered and are helpful. Felt safe throughout! If you get up at the crack of dawn, or even late at night. the sight of the flowing Ganges is very soothing. The food however, is not great. You have decent choices nearby,... More

I rang and booked 3 nights over the phone requesting an aircon room with nice river views. Based on my conversation and the photos on their website I didn't expect an upmarket room however I did expect my room to have curtains, be clean and have basics like toilet paper. The room was dirty and with no curtains at all... More

I went to Benaras, along with my parents, at the end of June, just before the onset of monsoons. We were very specific about staying in a hotel with river-view, having comfortable rooms at reasonable price. Ajay Guest House, also called the Palace on Steps, matched up, even exceeded our expectations. The room we stayed in had an attached balcony... More
