“Clean and quiet, good food and service”
Reviewed April 19, 2012

We stayed here for just one night. No problems with the room; it was clean and reasonably quiet but nothing special. Dinner and breakfast were good buffets with both Indian and international items. We had Indian dishes for dinner which were fine. Dinner was inexpensive at around INR900 each but, like all Indian hotels, bottles of wine were a ridiculous price (typically INR3000, GBP40). Service, especially in the restaurant, was efficient and pleasant.

The hotel does not have modern decor or furnishings, and is a little cramped, but we thought it more than adequate and totally acceptable for a short stay. Varanasi is perhaps the most complex city in northern India and we felt this hotel to be safe and calm. We travelled independently as a couple, perhaps it doesn't work so well for people arriving by the coach load.

Overall, we were content, would return and recommend the hotel for independent travellers.

TIP: hiring a boat to see the sunset prayers from the Ganges was a geat experience. But make sure to use insect repellent - we got bitten badly!

Stayed here for a couple of days. The service is very good and food is good in parts. But the other aspects of the hotel left a lot to be desired. The location is very crowded and the approach is short of space. It takes some time for vehicles to come in or go out. The rooms/beds are not as clean as you would expect from Radisson, room illumination level is bit low, wash room is also cramped for space.

Stayed here for three nights on three different occasions. The hotel is a bit dated as compared to other hotels I have stayed at but they more than make up for it by the quality of the service they offer. The staff is trained to smile. The food is quite good. The housekeeping does its work well. Overall, a good experience.

Basicly It was old and dirty. It really did smell awful. The sheets were dirty and there was no hot water. All three of our rooms were bad. After a day in Varinasi a person needs a clean place to come back to! And the noise from outside kept us awake.

Varanasi....there is no other place like it....the Radisson in Varanasi sets out to be an oasis of calm in the madness that is this so very spiritual and wild city .....until you go to dinner. The Kebab Restaurant at the Radisson is very popular and highly touted !and it was hopping the night we were there....the concept is great ...the implemention lacks luster, class and style. While waiters whizzed by our two tables of Canadian guests, tossing one piece of each choice randomly on our plates...then rushing off...we noted that the local clientele received slow, thoughtful distribution of goodies and even more choices of food. When management was confronted with this odd occurrence...which was corroborated by a table of the same locals ( how come you're not being served those two Dahls ?) we were told we didn't like spicer food ...and if we wanted the Raita ...we could have it....wow....who decided we didn't 'like' spicey food, and why treat tourists so poorly ...?

The Radisson was a comfortable and simple  place to stay. Staff was friendly, food was ok. Overall, a good option with no thrills.

This is a nice choice in Varanasi of the top of the line hotels. It's clean and the staff works very hard to make sure all of your needs will be met. The "Great Kebab Factory" Restaurant was really delicious. You order the meat or the veg option and then watch as the food arrives, and then eat until you are stuffed! We couldn't decide between the two so the staff delivered us a combo of meat and veg! The spa was also outstanding! Sign up for Arun's reflexology treatments and your feet and legs will be rejuvinated like never before!
