“The star ranking needs to be reviewed”
Reviewed April 23, 2014

While the staff are friendly here, the breakfast is bad, bed horribly uncomfortable (we sunk in the middle), the hotel rooms vastly outdated and outlets had issues (blew a fuse using their hairdyer). How this is a 5 star hotel I cannot phantom! In the US this would equate to Holiday Inn standards.

We arrived here from Delhi with an expectation of this chain of hotels. Unfortunately our expectations were not met. Generally the hotel is shabby and in need of some TLC.
The staff however were friendly and helpful and happy to answer any questions we had.
The rooms were clean but well worn. The female bathrooms near the restaurants were diabolical and worse than I have ever been in (this is coming from an experienced backpacker). We would love to return to Varanasi but would not recommend this hotel to stay on.

A nice hotel with good service,but the interiors needs renovation but still worth staying if the rooms are on discounted rates like weekends.Its not worth if you pay their normal rates.The coffee shop is good but the restaurant is a big disappointment serving only kababs should have some variety and also is very unorganized.The breakfast served was good and had variety..

Overall good hotel in terms of room size, amenities and location.

Fruit basket is served in the room, no matter when u check in, we checked in at 1 am and it was served promptly.

Cleanest toilets. Awesome bed for good and peaceful sleep.

Service can be improved in smoking area/rooms.

This hotel is what \I would call decaying but still ok. It needs a lot of work to bring it back to Radisson standards I would call it very tired looking. However the people are great, could not be more helpful. Breakfast was average. The beds were rock hard so \I suggest bringing a therma-rest to place under the sheet to give you a more comfortable sleep. Location is hard to judge as it would depend where and what you are doing. I would say it is good.

Room Tip: get a higher floor for a bit of the view

Our group stayed in this hotel for two nights. There was a strong smell of something burning that permeated the hallways and was evident in one of the hotel rooms. We had the creepy feeling that it was coming from the Ganges funeral pyres are burning 24/7. However, the hotel was located several miles from the river so that may have not been the case.
The hotel lobby was dirty, in particular the area rug. Although the rooms are spacious, the furniture was thoughtlessly placed and the sofa was so filthy that we wouldn't dare sit on it.
On a positive note, the staff was courteous and pleasant. The food in the Kabob restaurant was good and our meal was made even more pleasant by the friendly waiters who were intent on pleasing us. Breakfast was included in our package. There was a good variety of hot and cold foods, but overall it was fair.

Varanasi is a crowded, noisy, exhausting place filled with amazing sights so it was nice to come back each day to a clean and spacious environment. Only criticism the welcome pool area needs more umbrellas and sun chairs It could be a very welcoming place after a hot day in Varanasi
