Any budget hotels situated on the Varanashi Ghats??


I am planning my first trip to Varanasi this Diwali with my husband and my parents along with my 10-year-old son. Can anyone suggest me a good hotel havings rooms with a beautiful view of the river ghats. This trip is going to be a three-day stay. So it would be kind enough if anyone can give me complete addresses with contact phone numbers of the budget hotels. My budget is upto 400 INR per double bedroom per night. I have found that Hotel River View on the Brahma Ghat is a gud one on http://wikitravel.org/en/Varanasi, but I did not find have any phone number or email id posted in it as I want to book in advance. I look forward for your sincere replies.
