One of my main reasons to go back to Varanasi will be to stay at Nadesar Palace. It is the exquisitely restored guest house of the Maharaja of Varanasi - with a limited number of rooms, each individually decorated. There isn't a moment when one is not marvelling at the finesse of this Indian way of life. If you love beautifully restored antique interiors, you will wish you could buy or copy everything here - from the wallpaper, to the bevelled mirrors to the canopies around the four-poster beds, to the balconies and flower arrangements. The style here is am extension of and a deep appreciation for the Benares designs that one used to see in hand-woven textiles in the past. And one would need to look far and wide in the cloth markets in town to find such examples of this work. This is another thing that takes you back Varanasi - the heart-stopping textiles. I found the hotel restaurant prices steep, but appreciated the personal attantion that we got from the chef...and his sublime jackfruit curry, which was a special request. I do believe that tipping staff should come from a communal pool, so that one doesn't get preyed on by individual staff members - it's a little distasteful in an otherwise superb hotel experience.
