“Best for budget”
Reviewed September 9, 2013

We were picked up at the station with autorickshaw . The room was a deluxe on the Ganges and equipped with LCD TV and a spacious and comfortable bathroom. Although sometimes there is no electricity, we had no major problems as they use a generator. The morning we had complimentary continental breakfast (toast, jam, and omelettes) directly upstairs prepared and served

this place has the most beautiful view of the Ganga river, located just outside the Ghat area, it's close to the city center while in a quiet location. The staff and owners were very helpful, they helped us arrange transportation, took perfect care of us during the floods this summer, the best service we got in India. I recommend to stay in this hotel, it is a good value for money with beautiful view, great service and good food.

me and my boyfriend arrived here and were immediately impressed with the place. it was 8pm and after a long day travelling the two men took us straight up to our room saying we could fill in all the check in forms and do passports in the morning (we had booked online). we were delighted by the room, it was clean, decorated nicely and spacious. bathroom was HUGE, the shower was hot and was modern. bed was comfortable and was next to the large window. when we opened the curtains next morning we were gobsmacked by the view, its fantastic. we did book the highest price of room so don't know if that was why it felt so good. the two gentlemen at reception were on hand any time to help us with tours etc. they organised a trip to Sarnarth for us (great day away from Varanasi for a bit). unfortunately we couldn't go on a boat ride due to the river being so high but they checked everyday morning and evening for us.
roof top restaurant was a little disappointing however, we ate there the first night and there was only pasta available (not great) but there are loads of things just a 15minute walk away.
as expected power went out a few time but in only inconvenienced us on our last night when we had to book a hotel for our next place, charge phones etc and pack (our emergency light didnt seem to work) however the way they dealt with it was great, they worked on the wifi for ages and their little boy even gave us his phone as an extra torch.
last thing to mention is the crickets. we were often bombarded by quite large jumping crickets (or grasshoppers??) when asleep and you feel them it did get a little creepy. however not their fault at all. we assumed it was simply due to it being monsoon season.
basically we loved this place and varanasi, if you want the best view ever stay here, if you want lovely people stay here. simply just stay here.

Room Tip: book a room deluxe room with a river view

I am writing this review a year too late but this place stands out so well in my memory of everywhere I've been. There are not enough nice words to describe this guest house. They make you so welcome,. they are so helpful and the views from the terrace brought tears to my eyes (in a good way!) The food is decent, the rooms are fantastic value for money and as your right down is Assi ghat you can explore the whole of Varanasi easily by boat/cyclo/foot..... The people around are so friendly too and the pizza place on assi ghat is nice place for a change from curry. I'd go back there tomorrow if I could.

Its basically a guest house not hotel. The expectation should be of a guest house. Beautiful location at the bank of Ganges from where you can have a full view of Sunrise & other side of Ganges. Food/snacks is good in the guest house.

Very relaxing & happy experience !

Room Tip: Prefer the rooms with big glass window towards Ganges
