“Don't go - an awful hotel!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 9, 2011

We booked on line thru hotels.com and when arrived said they had no booking. Eventually given "family room" which instead of having 2 doubles had 1. After a long discussion was finally given a single bed with grubby linen. Paint peeling off Walls, fungus growing around bathroom and smelled bad! Constant power cuts! Rude staff who were unhelpful and not friendly. Avoid this hotel at all costs!

I had prior booking with confirmation from the Hotel. When I reached Hotel, the person Reception , very reluctantly alloted the room only when shown my booking confirmation on my Blackberry. We had to wait for 30 min for the hotel boy to come and pick-up luggage. When visited the coffee shop for so called complimentary break fast, witnessed the arogant replies to other Hotel guest by the person called Praveen Dubey. I too had similar experience and gave-up and paid for the breakfast.
The quality of the Food is very very bad. After the breakfast, we preferred normal Restuarents for Lunch/Dinner/Tea etc.,
I had to remind atleast 6 times in 45 min to send the boy to pick-up luggage while checking-out. When I tried to settle the Bill, they have no Credit Card swaping machine, then I had to draw cash from ATM and settled. Since I had to rush for Airport (never book Cab thru' this Hotel very very expensive and they cheat you, as I am victim of this), I have not lodged any compliant with any one at the Hotel, but walkedout without paying any tips.

Only advantage is it is close to Lord Viswanath/ Dashaswameth Ghats, Riksha takes Rs.10 one way.

The best thing about this hotel is its convenient location within walking distance of the main ghat in varanasi. If you bargain hard you can get a good price for a room and then the place becomes ok to stay ! Rooms are big, bathrooms are small and dirty. Reception is tricky. Restaurant is good but again watch your bill !

When travelling I expect three things from my basic no frills hotel - cleanliness, peace and quiet, good service. None of these were provided at this hotel. The rooms were distgusting, the bedsheets dirty and stained, the corridors, rooms, walls were all dirty. The noise levels were horrendous, there is no swimming pool as advertised and judging by some of the noise they are still building the hotel.

the best thing about the hotel is its location - very close to kashi vishwanath temple and the dashaswamedh ghats where the main aarti happens.
Also well located to travel to all other major destinations in the city - with local transport avaiable from just outside the hotel
The hotel may be considered a little expensive for Varanasi standards, but it is worth the comfort you get from the hotel. With AC rooms, friendly staff and awesome breakfast, the hotel is a winner, not forgetting the location.The room service is decent and the staff answers all your queries. Costa bout 50 bucks from the station to reach here by auto.

I booked this hotel for 3 nights and paid in advance.When I reached there,the hotel staff was so careless and nothing was arranged properly.Even if it was winter time ,they were not even able to manage hot water.
Because of such a poor arrangement and NO value of money,I had to check out on the very next day.but the manager was so rude,he did not even return my 1 night charge.very unprofessional and careless manager i have ever came across..

Please avoid staying in this hotel....

Myself,spouse and relative stayed in this hotel earlier this month. What can I say? the room was ok, towels dirty, bathroom hideous, service at reception poor, no hot water, lift malfunctioning.
the location of the hotel is in an old very noisy part of varanasi but not far from the Ganges.
The best thing about this hotel is its restaurant. Food is absolutely delicious and the waiters are really friendly and helpful and make you feel comfortable.
i would recommend if only there is improvement.
