going from the airport was ok until we arrived closer. the taxi driver didn't know the hotel. you should mention Shivala Ghat, it might be easier.we walked from the main street to the hotel more than we should have.
hotel welcome was nice, maybe trying too hard (but that is personal preference).
room was ok. not a 5 star of course, more like 3, but you pay for location. I believe that any 5 star like hotels will be too big of a contast between varanasi and your room, so this hotel is perfect for this reason. nice and clean in perfect location. worth the price.
roof terrace was nice. yoga in the morning in the relatively fresh air and jumping monkeys around you was good.
food was reasonably nice, nothing amazing. very nice live music in the evening. we also ate at great keban factory in the Raddison hotel. that was amazing. still thinking of the minced lamb kebab.

It was built by the Royal Family of Nepal as a retreat for the aged. Its now been painstakingly put together again to provide the best ghat experience in Benaras. Your stay begins with a 15 minute boat ride upstream along the famous ghats of Benaras to reach the Haveli. The Haveli is also connected by small alleys and streets leading to the Famous Kashi Vishwanath Temple (15 minutes walk). ... more less
