The hotel is situated strategically at the ghats with a splendid view of the Ganges. The rooms were clean and staff very friendly and caring. Reaching the place can be a bit difficult if you are new to Varanasi. Hence strongly recommend to contact the hotel staff and arrange for pick up. I would definitely choose that place again if...

We didn't stay at this hotel, but maybe would another time. We ate there twice at their terrace restaurant with fabulous views on the Ganges. The food was good and the hotel seemed like a good place - in an excellent location. Ideally you would have a room with a river view.

I would usually not single out a person. But what makes the hotel great is Munna. He goes above and beyond for his clients. If you want the real Kasi experience then go with this hotel, as long as Munna is there. The staff at the restaurant is also very polite and nice, and it is true pleasure to sit... More

Best thing about this hotel is you are absolutely on the Ganges. One may take bath at their own ghat, sit on the verandah and enjoy sunrise and also Ganga Aarti.The ambience inside the hotel is good. Only backdraw is that far from motorable road.

There are no words to describe how grateful I am to Munna and his team for making my stay in Varanasi so special. Lets cover the hotel first of all- Amazing location, and basic rooms are excellent value, but do stretch to the deluxe if you can as its more than worth it. The rooms are all spotlessly clean. The...

Nice hotel, we got a deluxe room. It's just been renovated and the pictures online don't do it justice, I was pleasantly surprise. Food okay. Staff okay but not particularly helpful or friendly. No nice space to relax in the restaurant or terrace, this was lacking for the evenings.

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
