Radisson Hotel Varanasi
Ranked #9 of 80 Hotels in Varanasi
Reviewed November 19, 2013

We stayed here one very memorable night in old, old Varanasi and found this was a great spot to come home to. The room was lovely, the hotel was quiet and comfortable, the breakfast buffet was wonderful, and the Indian restaurant within the hotel was quite good as well. The hotel is also next door to a very wonderful shop that specializes in hand woven silks and brocades for which the city is famous.

After staying at the Radisson at Agra (which we thought was really excellent), we expected a little more than we got at Varanasi. It's more a three-and-a-half star place rather than a five-star. Everything was just a little worn around the edges and I think it's time for an update. Having said that, it was clean and comfortable, with decent breakfast buffet and good service, though a fair way away from the Ganges (like the other 'western' hotels in Varanasi).

The positives were the hotel was clean, staff were friendly. The downside was a number of smaller individual items.

The communal toilet on the first floor smelt so strongly you could not enter it. The first day the corridor outside our room stank of moth balls. The next day the corridor smelt really strongly of burnt food, which hung around all day.

Ordering fresh orange juice and masala tea from the downstairs cafe area, we were told that it would take 10-15 minutes and it ended up taking 25 minutes.

There was working going on by the pool, with lots of dust and tradesmen constantly traipsing up and down and not using the area sheilded off for the work. It meant that we left the pool early and did not return during our stay. There was construction work opposite the pool and the builders were shouting at us in the pool and we had to keep the curtains closed in our room.

Hotel had nice rooms and clean comfortable beds. Dinner in the Great Kebab Factory was very good, and their Saffron-Pistachio ice cream was do die for. Breakfast buffet was a nice mix of Indian and Western, with eggs made to order.

I live in a quiet suburban neighborhood so have trouble sleeping with background noise. The rooms were very quiet and easy to sleep in.

Hotel is sufficiently near all the attractions that they were all easily reached. Hotel is around 45 minute drive from airport.

Free WiFi is available for guests. Electrical outlets are Indian, so bring an adapter.

I understand that there is a dearth of upscale hotels in Varanasi, but the Radisson is just not up to snuff. Rooms not available until after 3:30pm. Public areas are not well air-conditioned. Our room had a connecting door (always a disaster) and sure enough, the hysterical occupant of the next room started screaming down the phone at 3am. The bathroom was covered in mildew and the faucet in the hand-basin was so loose that I felt it could have come off at any time. Our room also had a picturesque view of a construction site which, although not uninteresting, was noisy. The bar staff were completely clueless: ten minutes to come and take an order, then leave the beer on the bar for another ten to warm up, finally bring it to the table and walk away without opening the bottles. Oh, and did I mention they had no tonic to go with the gin? The restaurant was the least disappointing of all. Food OK and service fine.

Room Tip: Try the Taj.
