This hotel is an island of luxury amongst the poverty and squalor that characterises much of Varanasi. The best feature of the hotel is the magnificent gardens and pool area where is is a pleasure to stroll and rest. Good food and attentive staff. The public areas are nice. You cannot ignore that the hotel looks somewhat tired and in need of refurbishment. This is reflected in the state of the corridors and the bedroom air con was particularly noisy. Road noise can be a distraction - recommend pool view room at rear of hotel. This hotel was fine for 2 nights 3* by UK standards.
