Upon reading TripAdvisors last reports we decided to give the Ganesha hotel a try....and we were not disappointed. Although we only reserved our room by telephone, it was there and ready when we arrived. The hotel was clean and inviting and the staff was very friendly, welcoming and easy. The room was clean and straightforward, with hot and cold water and towels, plus free wifi - which was very good (as I have experienced all different types all over India). Location is very good, right at Assi Ghat. No Ganges views but its just a minute walk and there is a phantastic Lassi shop just at the corner. If you want to arrange Aarti, Boating, night rickshaws or Sarnath trips Santosh and the staff are very helpful without ever hasseling. We felt real cared for ...in fact so...... that after we spent 4 days at Bodhgaya we decided to come back to Ganesha hotel for a second time. Again a telephone call reserved the room and on coming back it felt like coming home. Thank you again Santosh for everything. This time we paid by credit card and there was no problem either. So to round it off: although there are plenty of other hotels in Varanasi we will come back again to this one.......
PS We also stayed at the room with the small window (105) and I don't mind the beds at all....futong style
