Our small group had been staying down at Meer Ghat for our stay in Varanasi and then attempted to leave by an overnight train...until we saw once we got to the station that the train was 17+ hours late. Not fond of the idea of staying on the concrete all night and morning, we hightailed it back to Varanasi in hopes of finding Somewhere to rest our heads at close to midnight. Hotel after hotel was closed, booked, price gouging us... until we found Hotel Ganesha. It looked SO beautiful from the outside that everyone else had their doubts it would work out---but I knew Ganesh wouldn't let us down! Turns out we were one of the first guests there (I think).
It looked like a little boutique hotel you'd find in San Francisco, not Varanasi. It was adorable, and the rooms were a welcome relief; clean, comfortable, cute. The sparkling bathroom was also comforting.
The unfortunate part is that we were woken up at 5 a.m. by our newfound cab driver friend, telling us the train was coming, so we had to get all of our stuff & go. (Turns out, we had another 7+ hours to go!). I truly wish we had been able to spend more time at Hotel Ganesh because it seemed like a very cool place. All I know is, it saved us in our tired, slightly-freaked-out hour of need. Thanks, Hotel Ganesh!
