The view & rooms (Room No: 120) of the hotel was great & beyond the expectations in terms of the other hotels. But we were flattered when we received personalized services from one of there employ called "Munna Bhai" with minute details of what to see, eat, buy & most important what is the heritage & history attached to it....

Firstly, getting to the hotel is definitely not easy. If you are looking for a car parking or want to take your car right to the hotel door, this hotel is certainly not for you. Now, getting down to why I have rated this hotel clean 5 out of 5. Well, if you are looking for a break in your... More

Rooms are clean. Hotel is very much near to the temple. Ganges is next to the Hotel. Hotel staff gave very good guidance on sight seeing. I would especially like to thank Hotel Manager Mr.Mukesh, who took care of our trip and guided us throughout. Thx for arranging good drivers (Dinesh)

I am so well looked after by the whole team and nothing is too much trouble. Apart from the rooms and bathroom being very clean, the ambiance of the hotel is... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Hotel Alka, a synonym for customer-oriented services from years, believes in providing an adorable environment to its guests, where not only they find peace in dwelling but also experience a the highest degree of dedication from the staff. And what more can one ask for? Hotel Alka is located right in the core of Varanasi, a place where even holiness is re-defined. Its evidently a must visit place for all in life. Varanasi (the ancient Kashi or the medieval Banaras) is one of the oldest cities of the world and is considered to be favourite, of even the almighty. Varanasi's prominence in Hindu mythology is virtually unrivalled. Mark Twain, the celebrated English author , who was enthralled by the legend and sanctity of Banaras, once wrote : "Banaras is older than history, older than tradition, older even than legend and looks twice as old as all of them put together." ... more   less
