Sahi River View Guesthouse
Ranked #14 of 220 Varanasi B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed August 13, 2013

Nice and clean rooms, very polite staff, breakfast included(!), great Gages views, common areas to meet other travellers, huge fridge to get water, soft drinks (or store your beers ;-) ). So, for a budget guesthouse it is superb! It could be a little cheaper, but I would definitely stay there again!

Stayed here and initially did not like the location, however, came to prefer it. The guest house is about 2km outside of the center of tourist Varanasi. It's quieter here with less traffic.

The staff is professional and helpful but don't smile too often. They provide a simple breakfast free of charge.

Rates are ok and the hotel fills fast bc of review books. Book ahead for cheaper rooms. The rooms are clean and have a decent river breeze so no AC is needed, even in the summer.

The best that we could find in Varanasi, although a tad tricky to find. The rooms were tidy, staff were great and it was cheap. We had nice views of the Ganges and it was quietly tucked away from the noisy mayhem outside.

We stayed here in June 2013 and we absolutely loved it. After the horrible experience of crossing the border from Nepal and a tourist agency selling us fake train tickets at the border, this was just what we needed to recover. The hotel manager Jeet was really accommodating and got us CONFIRMED train tickets to Agra a day before we had to leave, which was quite hard to do. Hotel staff were really nice too, and even brought down our shoes from the roof deck when it started to rain. Room was clean and spacious, had AC and its own bathroom. Food was affordable and really good (especially the choco-banana pancakes, lassi and macaroni) Guesthouse was accessible as it was really near Asi Ghat and all the tuktuk/rickshaw drivers know it. Worth every penny, and it wasn't even that expensive to begin with :)

The best thing about this place is Anand and the rest of the staff. The food is also really tasty and the cook is a lovely person. I very much recommend this place for travellers. The location is also great just about he river and while it may be noisy in certain seasons, you'll get a first-hand experience of life on the Ganga.

I traveled all over India one summer and this was hands down the best experience I'd had. Besides Varnasi being one of the most beautiful places I'd ever been to, Sahi River View made the experience that much better. The people who work at the front desk are friendly and helpful. The food comes quick and it's very tasty. I'd been homesick for some American food and they whipped me up some food that reminded me of home.

The view from the room was simply breathtaking. I was on the top floor and stayed in a room for three people. Through one of the windows, there's some sort of monastery (the building was gorgeous!) where a bunch of religious men live, saying their prayers and washing these bright orange sheets. Everything was just pleasant. I can't wait to go back.
