Visited back in September of 2013. They were doing some remodeling at the time but it never got in the way. The staff was awesome and helped us out along the way. We had troubles with our original tour guides and the hosts hooked us up with what turned out to be far better deals then we originally had. Breakfast and dinners were included with our stay arrangement and while not necessarily fancy, the cook was awesome, the food delicious and it was just what we needed to start and end the day.

Room Tip: Just ask to see available rooms.

I visited varanasi couple of weeks back as part of family pilgrimage. We were nine members and I booked family rooms in Buddha well in advance. Though we came in early they kept our rooms ready and they received us very well. The front office staff were very good. Special mention about Ms.Puja who was the contact person for our booking did an excellent job in getting everything organized very well. The rooms were very good and the overall ambiance was great. The service staff were also very attentive. And the kitchen/food was awesome though it was designated for house guests. The menu had all kinds of Cuisine and we tried most of the options.the food was very delicious.
The travel desk was very helpful for organizing our trips. Overall we had wonderful time at Buddha. I would heart fully recommend this place to any one who would like to visit varanasi,

I also like to appreciate the management who came to meet us while we were checking out to know our feedback on our stay. This I think is really a very nice gesture. I wish the management would maintain the same standards.

On behalf of my family I wish to Thank once again the management and staff that served us.

Just back from staying here from 3rd to 6th May in Family room for 4. Good beds with 12 inch mattress and soft pillows. bed is at par with high end star hotels. Clean toilets and bathrooms. Only drawback is they do not have power back up during the day for the AC though the TV and fan works when there is a power cut which is quite frequent and unpredictable in summer.
Good travel desk person, Raju (08756332698) who took good care of our travel needs. Thanks also to Munna the Innova driver who took us around. V K Singh and Pooja at front desk were polite and courteous.
Breakfast was good and served well. We had north indian and south indian menu on different days. Maybe both options can be made available on all days.
Would recommend the hotel for its cleanliness, comfortable beds and well maintained toilets which are at par with rated 4 star hotels, thought you do not get a lobby, gym and pool.There is a park in front of the hotel and a good veg restaurant Annapurna at walking distance.

I selected this hotel after reading Tripadvisor reviews which was very helpful. Facility mentioned in reviews are available. It's good value for money hotel.

I stayed last week in Hotel Buddha; Varanasi with my family. Hotel Buddha front desk and travel desk are very friendly. I called them one day before with early check-in request as our arrival to Varanasi was in early morning. Hotel Manager helped me with direction to hotel from station and assured me early ckeck-in. Hotel rooms are quite spacious and food quality is good considering religious place like Varanasi. Travel Desk Manager Mr.Raju Ji is extremely friendly and helpful in nature. His driver Munna who was on our duty for two days sightseeing was very good. I will certainly recommend to stay in Hotel Buddha to experience good hospitality and service. I would like to thank Hotel Buddha team for helping us to make our Varanasi Stay memorable. Thanks Santosh; Mumbai

Good Room with all required amenities.However there was insufficient supply of toileteries like soap,shampoo,gel,hair guard,moisturizer and had to ask for them. No Tea/coffee maker in the room.

Food was good. Staff were helpful but over worked and obvious delay in service and mistake in billing was due to shortage of staff.

Travel desk was helpful and guiding well,charges were reasonable.

Attached Bathroom needs better circulation and Exhaust fan was missing.

Wi-fi access was limited but no extra charges levied for this.

Over all a good experience during our stay from April 18 to April 22, 2014

The hotel staffs are really kind and helpful. They do not try to make more and more money from customers, just try to help customers. They gave me good advises which meets my needs. Actually this kind of niceness is very valuable in India.

The room is very spacious. I could have one living room with a sofa, a TV and a fridge and one big bed room with a spacious bath room.
A temperature of shower is enough-not very hot, but still nice in India.
They kept my room very clean everyday.

This hotel is located at the center of the new town, so is far a bit from Ganges. By cycle or tuk-tuk, around 15 minutes to the central Ghat of Ganges which costs USD 0.5-2. Very nice budget hotel.

Their exchange rate of USD was the best among my all experience in India.

Just for your information -- It was noisy in the night due to its location. Probably I stayed there right before the big election.
Breakfasts was supposed to start at 7:30, but one day started after 7:50. If you really want to have it at 7:30 sharp, you have to make sure of it.
Wifi connection is weak a little - my PC could connect but my Iphone cannot connect inside my room ( in the lobby, I could capture the signal).
