As part of a tour trip via our travel company, we were staying here for 2 days/1 night in Varanasi. First off, this hotel is located in the Cantonment area, which is pretty far removed from the general town and Ghats, and is certainly not walkable, which made getting to/from places more expensive as we had to take taxis/rickshaws. The neighborhood also seemed sketchy after dark, and there were really no other destinations for food that were within walking distance.
The rooms were pretty spacious, however ours even though we obviously booked a a couple, had two double beds, and the beds were pretty hard, all things together. Additionally, the hotel had limited wifi that you had to pay for the key daily, and there was very limited hot water (seemed like < 5 minutes, not enough for one of us to shower). We found the staff to be pretty nonexistant, which was a pain when we needed extra linens for our shower, or to get our laundry done. Additionally, eating in the restaurant took forever, and while they did have some interesting menu items we hadn't seen anywhere else, the quality overall was sub-par. If we return to Varanasi, we'll definitely look for another option.More
