Stayed in purple lotus Varanasi for three days, did not book online. It just went straight and met Santosh the owner, who was really accommodating and showed me around also offered tea/coffee. While having tea I made up mind to stay here as the place has such good vibes and felt like home.
Purple lotus has both option of private rooms and share accommodation. Also the option of AC and Non AC rooms are there, the place is location in walking distance which is the best part, as near Assi ghat is too much noise and too many weared people. I had all my meals with the family and the best was chicken curry and rice.
Santosh knew that I am a solo traveler and offered his company for city walk, what else could have been the best, while on the walk I also figure out that Santosh also speaks Italian and is a licences guide. What else you could ask for more. When he brought me for Ganga Arti OMG was the best cherry on top. Santosh is so very well aware of the city as he has spent all his life in Varanasi and I am sure the beat guide in the city. He had answers to all my question and was always smiling.
Purple lotus home stay and Santosh keep doing the good job and keep people smiling, wish you all the very best luck.More
