This hotel is in a great location just on the edge of the main hustle and bustle of Varanasi on the Assi Ghat overlooking the Ganges.
Our early arrival was met with a somewhat less than effusive welcome but we did have the option of choosing the room we wanted for our stay. Although not large it was characterful and well enough appointed, with direct access to the attractive roof terrace where tea and breakfast could be taken.
Although there was a fair amount of street noise during the day, nights were reasonably quiet so we were able to sleep quite well.
Dinner was a (vegetarian) buffet affair with plenty of choice taken at tables with other guests which made for an interesting and jolly occasion.
A problem occurred when we came to settle our bill as the credit card machine seemed to have given up the ghost. Eventually the receptionist overcame the problem by taking me a short walk to an internet café where the hotel obviously has an arrangement and payment was made to them.
Our stay in Varanasi was a highlight of our month in India and this hotel went a long way to making it memorable. A nice gesture was the small novelty gift on departure.More
